Mishmi Retreat: The Ideal Hotel in the Heart of Assam
How would you like to live in a wooden hut, fitted with the bare necessities of modern lifestyle, right in the middle of a place surrounded by hills?
That is what you get at Mishmi Retreat, one of the most famous hotels of Purvi Discovery. The name Mishmi comes from the name of the surrounding hills, Mishmi. The Mishmi Retreat, the conglomerate of 4 wooden huts, is the property developed and maintained by our team, with local support in the form of manpower and logistics. Located right in the heart of the Eastern Himalayas, at this property you will get the best of North East India.
To take you through the basics of this ecstatic residence, there are 4 huts, each with a little space for a sit-out. If you don’t feel like venturing out on someday, you can simply put your feet up and relax in this area, overlooking the beautiful Mishmi hills. The washroom is a separate area, made of concrete. To ensure that you don’t feel inconvenience in this architectural setup, the washrooms are fitted with modern amenities.Hot water is provided only in buckets. Logistical issues, along with inconsistent power backup, make it difficult for geysers to be installed.
The residential rooms themselves are particularly cozy, inviting and comfortable, especially after an adventurous day hunting for the right visual landscape around you. There are mosquito nets in every room to keep you protected from vector-borne diseases. You will surely fall in love with the decor, made of wood and cane. In the central dining space, there’s an imitation of the fireplaces found in Mishmi homes. This kind of decor and conceptualization opens up the lifestyle of the people living around you as you stay at Mishmi Retreat.
When you come to Assam to explore the North East, you must stay at Mishmi. It gives you a perspective of what local life is, and how tradition has dictated the lives of the people here especially if you are fond of the rural lifestyle. You can even live their life partially in the few days that you stay here, an experience that will stay with you for the rest of the years. Instead of opting for hotel rooms that all look the same, you can stay with Purvi Discovery for a different, enriching experience.
