Darjeeling, the queen of the hills, needs no introduction as she can offer you all these and then some more. The place shows off its colonial heritage proudly, yet full of all the modern amenities and connectivity. There are a number of properties scattered throughout the hill-station, but Nomadic Oakdene Resort Darjeeling is one of the best among them.
