Grand Sultan Tea Resort & Golf is, impressively, the only five-star resort in the Sylhet region of Bangladesh. Named ‘Bangladesh’s Best Luxury Tea Resort’ in the 2019 Global Luxury Hotel & Spa Awards, we took a closer look at the hotel to find out how they have gained such an impeccable reputation in the luxury hospitality industry.
Located in Srimongal, the ‘tea capital’ of Bangladesh, Grand Sultan Tea Resort & Golf combines luxurious surroundings with warm hospitality that always looks to exceed expectations. Where it truly impresses, however, is in its amenities and activities, that seek to offer a plethora of options to keep guests entertained throughout the duration of their stay. Think a nine-hole recreational golf course, basketball court, tennis court and badminton court, on top of a pool, game centre and children’s area – and that’s just scratching the surface of what is available.
For those that want a more relaxed stay, the hotel’s Rupnagari Spa offers traditional Thai massage, Aromatherapy massage, Swedish, sport and scrub massages to ensure total relaxation and enjoyment.
Of course, the Grand Sultan Tea Resort is more than the sum of its amenities, and in everything else, it works hard to deserve its five-star rating. Each of the hotel’s 135 rooms are spacious and modern, with a focus on providing a ‘best-in-class’ experience from the moment a guest steps over the threshold. Of particular note are the Royal Suite Superior and Presidential Suites, which boast unbeatable views of the hotel’s resplendent grounds.
The hotel’s dining options too look to offer a whole host of choices, with casual all-day dining at Fowara Dine, to fine dining at Shahi Dine. Similarly, Café Mongal is the perfect place to enjoy the hotel at a more leisurely pace, with a large selection of mocktails and juices available at the Pool Deck Café – every taste is sure to satiated.
Ultimately, this sums up Grand Sultan Tea Resort & Golf in a nutshell – an ability to meet any desire or need. In many ways, this is archetypal of many five-star hotels, but here that idea is elevated, and given new meaning.
