No doubt Nazimgarh is the best resort in Bangladesh. I went there with my guest (DG of European Union). He was really surprised to see the resort and its surroundings. An island of peace in the midst of green. Though food was expensive, its test really great. I took a room in terrace which was spacious with a huge baranda. I would agree with the previous room there is lack of processing of check in and cleanness. I found jacuzzi is not clean enough. I visited with them to Lalkhal which is really great journey through nail-blue water to another kingdom of nature.

We are now in Bangladesh for 6 years and I moved from North to South in the country. When I came the first time in Nazimgarh Resort in 2010 I found a huge difference compared to other resort and so called five stars in the country. The place was clean and service was professional. I decided to return this year with my family. The place is still peaceful and calm but in addition the service is now outstanding with people attentive to every of your needs. The food is excellent and we enjoyed every meal. Yes it is true the SPA was not open but each time we wanted we had the steam bath prepared and ready for us after some minutes. Swimming pool is clean and kids can play without risk.
As usual in Bangladesh maintenance of the buildings is not at his best and one can find stains on the wall caused by an excessive humidity but this is not dramatic and understandable. This resort has given us an idea of the real Bangladeshi hospitality.
Congratulations for all these efforts and bravo for the result.

Nazimgarh Resort is an excellent place to stay, to have fun, to have lots of activities with wonderful and world class facilities and food. The site view, suits, room are wonderful with tasty food and good facilities. It was really a good experience for myself and and my spouse staying at Nazimgarh Resort. I am really happy with its services, facilities, site views and food. Best of luck to Nazimgarh Resort - The Number One Resort in Sylhet. I am inviting Everybody to have this excellent experience and share with others.

I would say the Sylhet trip was a much needed getaway for me especially after experiencing the Bangladeshi rural life for 3 continuing weeks. The modern interior designing and architecture, the ultra-soft mattress, the Jacuzzi in the bathroom is a complete contrast to the basic living arrangement I have experienced everywhere else in Bangladesh. I didn't hesitate to indulge myself with the delicious food/cuisines both the restaurants offered! The best part was that you don't even have to look for a guide to take you around Sylhet, the resort will provide you with one for a very reasonable price. I DEFINITELY recommend this resort to everyone! I had a BLAST!

I met the owner Nazim, who was so kind and has a real great vision for bringing the best hospitality to travellers across the world. I was in Bangladesh on business and last time I was there in 2009 stumbled upon this hotel complex and decided next time I would visit.

2011 I did and had lunch and tea as well experience some of their excursions.

What a lovely serene oasis away from the hustle and bustle of dusty, noisy streets. My nine year used the gorgeous pool and I can truly say there is no other place like this in the vicinity. It is gorgeous because it is very modern, high quality and its setting is lush, lush, lush.

Yes it is 20 minutes drive away from the town centre yet this is welcome retreat. Green, restful, peaceful, I was unable to stay. The room look lovely, clean and we had a good look round and was great. I know that next time i am out there, I will stay there.

If you are lucky enough to visit Bangladesh, stay here. I know I will be doing so.

I am trying to upload photos but this is proving a bit hard as my camera is frozen!!

I recently spent a few days at Nazimgarh resorts after having travelled around Bangladesh for a few weeks. This place was a heaven after having experienced these weeks of busy crowd, pollution and basic accommodation.

Regarding the resort in itself the rooms were clean and fully equipped according to the European standards, quite an exception for Bangladesh so far, not to mention the bubble bath in the bathroom :D

The food on the menu was various, among others Bangladeshi, Indian, Italian, Chinese cuisines, and relatively tasty.

On the entertainment side, you can go for short or longer treks in the surroundings of Sylhet, visit tea factories and taste freshly made tea. Sylhet has also a lot of shops where you can buy handicrafts, there is also the Shah Jalal Mazar mosque to visit.

If you want to go for more adventurous things to do, you can go to the Indian border where you can visit the village of the Kushis, a matriarchal tribe. The landscape over there is really beautiful, the flat land with the tea trees from Bangladesh contrasting with the mountains of India. Just amazing!

For all this reasons I would highly recommend Nazimgarh resort. Hope you will enjoy your stay there as well!

I recently spent 3 days and 2 nights at the resort and had a thoroughly enjoyable time. Everything that you might need is at your disposal - large, clean pool, TV/movie lounge with hundreds of DVDs, several restaurants, games and internet room with tuck shop, lobby area with daily newspapers and swing chairs. The surroundings are lush and there is plenty of wildlife in the local area. The rooms are also very well appointed and the beds are supremely comfortable! I would highly recommend the resort for those on the backpacker trail who fancy a 'luxury' pit stop amidst the difficulties of travelling around the country or for ex-pats/locals looking for a convenient and relaxing break from Dhaka.

I visited for a short, three-day stay to escape the hartal in Dhaka, along with some friends who knew the owner.

Having travelled around Bangladesh for a few weeks previously, this resort was a complete surprise - fully featured with all amenities we could want (except, perhaps, WiFi). The location is beautiful, surrounded by the lush tea gardens that were our reason for visiting Sylhet originally - made all the more colourful by the rich historical backdrop provided by the very accommodating owner, who is often resident.

The rooms (in the Terrace - I did not get to see inside the other accommodation available) are very clean and excessively comfortable, with jacuzzis in the bathrooms, AC, minifridge, and balconies looking out over the trees and fields.

Food in the two restaurants covers a range of tastes and cuisines; it occasionally took a while to serve, but was tasty when it came - and, for our large group of students, the waiters obligingly provided individual bills each meal.

There are plenty of places to visit around the resort, and we also visited the site of the resorts second development, a short boat ride up-river towards the Indian border in an untouched location - definitely worth a look once it's finished.

After 5 weeks of a travelling Internship around Bangladesh the Nazimgarh resort is the best debrief. There is nothing of Dhaka here. So if you are looking to escape the mess I highly recommend this place. The beauty of the area is enough to make you want to stay longer and the fact the place is so clean and the beds so comfy it's no wonder I don't want to leave.

P.S I am a vegan and once I explained this to the chef at the Hilltop restaurant he was very accommodating. They were able to provide me with vegan options both on and off the menu.

We stayed in the resort for 1 week and could have stayed for a lot longer due to it's great location, cleanliness and friendliness of the staff. The resort is set within trees and has a very natural feel with many species of birds flying in the resort . The rooms are very modern and comfortable and all have amazing views . The resort staff were very welcoming and could not do enough for you.

A truly amazing resort in sylhet

Nazimgarh is far and away the best place to stay in Sylhet. Conveniently located, 10 min drive from town, in quiet rural setting. Excellent views over nearby countryside. Well appointed, with friendly, attentive and capable staff. Excellent food, fine swimming pool. There is a lot to do do in the neighbourhood - visiting tea gardens, walking in nearby village, enjoying the beautifully manicured compound grounds. The resort is developing facilities in several locations some 30-40 kms away towards the Himalayan foothills/Indian border which will make this fabulous place an even more enticing holiday destination. The owner, Nazim Kamran Choudhury, is a genial host, passionate about promoting Sylhet and a fount of knowledge on local history and customs.

Can't wait to go again!

What a magnificent resort! Why go to far away places when there is such a beautiful place right here in Bangladesh - just a few hours drive from Dhaka. Impeccable, beautfiul, clean, equipped with all class A amenities, surrounded by beautiful landscape, quiet, peaceful, hospitable staff and delicious food. What makes this resort stand out from any other is that it has the touch of love and passion of the owners, who are from that very place and physically spend a good deal of their time there. A must visit! My 6 year old daughter just didn't want to leave.

Only a few hours drive from Dhaka, Nazimgarh Resort is a haven of peace and serenity. With a wonderful private swimming pool, excellent food, spacious comfortable rooms, and beautiful views you never have to leave. However the hotel can arrange fascinating visits to nearby tea estates, unspoiled rivers, and even one of the last matriarchal communities in Bangladesh. With a professional staff and friendly service I had a most relaxing and enjoyable stay. A perfect weekend getaway for Dhaka based expatriates. I took the direct train back to Dhaka, which was a comfortable journey.

nazimgarh is a resort which needs to be visited once in a lifetime in the context of Bangladesh. best if you stay for a night because day 2 will invite boredom. Room is good and cozy with +1 jacuzzi another +1 is food. personal movie area and games are also adiitional +1. but -1 is if you are a single traveller (not for your honeymoon or friends beside you) i am not sure how will you pass your time in there.

but above all its a nice place and for once visiting is a must

After stumbling across the resort's website on the internet, i really liked the pictures of the resort given on the net and decided to spend the weekend there with my family. We booked the executive suites and after arriving, we found the rooms to be quite spacious with a big balcony.
However, there were problems with electricity and the resort has to rely on generators which cannot provide power to run the AC s . It was a good thing that the weather was cool when we were there and hence faced no problems, however caution is advised when staying there in hot weather. The scenery is quite refreshing and there is also a tea garden to visit not so far from the resort. The only problem we faced was that the food was not exactly upto par given its price. The price is high and the quality not exactly to our liking ( in my opinion only ) . I would recommend going to this resort with a private car or if private car or at least hire a car for travelling to other places since one might face difficulties in finding a means of transport. Overall , one can expect to have a pretty good and relaxing visit in Nazimghar ( check if the AC s work during summer ) and i would recommend staying in this resort .

We went to Sylet with our kids and friends stayed at Nazimgarh for two nights.Resort was very nice and staff were very friendly.I think this hotel is the most children friendly hotel in Bangladesh with kids out door play area,they also have indoor play area where kids can play video games and play station,swimming pool and many others.They also have mini movie theatre where you can watch movies and chill out.We stayed in a suite which was very nice,comfortable with a nice big terrace overlooking the nice scenic view,toilet was awesome with jacuzi in it.Matter of fact we did not expect this kind of luxury resort in the middle of Sylet. We also visited a tea garden which was just opposite of the resort.Hotel also arranged a river cruise trip "LaLa Khal" which was high light of our trip, I have not seen such a nice river in my life .River was made of sand instead of mud so the water was blue and crystal clear and was not that deep so we all had a nice swim !!!! Over all I will rate this resort as excellent and will recommend other.

We came to the resort with 2 kids and a baby and didn't know what to expect. We chose to stay in their terrace building and I think t was the right one. It's closer to everything and mug newer
There was lots to do onsite as well as in the surrounding area. I would recommend though that you hire a car because scenic areas are not as close as you would think.

If in your budget definitely go on the motorboat ride arranged by the hotel. Food is definitely over priced but if you stick to the Bengali dishes you will be a happy camper! Veer off the local cuisine and food definitely is average.

Nature and quiet are the key words here so go with a mind to relax. Avoid the pool as people jump in with their clothes on! Definitely take a dip in the river though if you go, we did and it was great.

They have a movie room but is first come first serve no booking available. There is also a games room with the latest gadgets like thr Xbox 360 Kinect, Wii and ps3 where the kids would go to after dinner for an hour or so. They also have a pool table for your recreation, a park although it's a bit run down. But in the park bikes are available which was nice.

The rooms are super but they are in a jungle area so expect bugs, especially ants. The bathroom was clean and had a tub with jets and hot water. They have no electric kettle but the staff are happy to supply you with hot water and even cleaned the baby's bottles for me.

Dinner service ends at 10pm so be mindful and eat early. food service takes a while so do plan in advance.The electricity goes but the hotel has a massive generator and your room and the common areas are always nice and cool.

All in all we had a fun time and will definitely go back. Remember it's not five star but its a great find in a country that has no real tourism infrastructure. So keep an open mind and just enjoy the peace and quiet.

The resort is built taking a huge area and the greenery around it is very beautiful. We stayed in the executive suite which was huge and the balcony attached to it was also big. I would recommend visiting the place in winter as in the rainy season it is full of small grasshopper flying all around wherever there is light. Despite of the small grasshoppers, we enjoyed the rain sitting at the balcony. The view was awesome. They also have wonderful sitting arrangements in the big reception area with chairs and swings
The rooms are good but the toilet is a little low in maintenance compared to other 5 star hotels. The buffet breakfast area was also good but the food choices for breakfast were not up to the mark. The other restaurant is also low on maintenance as the wall paints at the corners were coming off. The gym is not well equipped.
The hotel is a bit away from city center so you must have a transportation arranged if you want to go around to see places. You can also ask the reception to arrange tour packages which they are offering. As we took our own car it was OK for us to move around without much hassle. This is the best hotel around and so I would definitely recommend this hotel. If you are planning for a holiday in Sylhet you can spend your time here but do keep your expectations low compared to other international 5 star hotels. Would recommend the resort as it is very relaxing to stay away for all the crowds of the city for a break and compared to the surrounding nature the small glitches they have can be easily ignored.

The best rooms could be found at the terrace building which is quite nearer to the restaurant. Whereas the rooms in villa are also very wonderful. The wash rooms in each villa and terrace are a luxury. Only problem lacks in the food section which is average.

Travelled over an April weekend with family and friends. I have been to Nazimgarh several times before, and the last time I was there the resorts main building was under construction. I have to say that I was very impressed with the finished product!

Comfortable rooms and suites with an understated elegance, wooden floors, great bathrooms, all built tastefully on a sloping hill to ensure that everyone can enjoy the view of the green rolling hills of Sylhet, sitting in comfortable verandah chairs. Opposite the main building is another which houses the restaurant, a spa, a game room (with internet), and a rooftop swimming pool. The resort also has a billiards/rec room, and a play area for small children with the usual fun stuff like swings, see-saws and even bikes. Definitely comparable in quality to fine resorts in more popular tourist destinations such as Thailand

The staff are friendly and efficient, and we had no difficulties as all our requests were promptly dealt with. Food at the restaurant was good, and the resort can also arrange evening bbq's for those who travel in a group and want to relax on the open rooftop.

If you want to go out for a little sight seeing, boat trips on can be arranged in the nearby river, which has clear, clean water just inviting you to swim! One can also take a tour of the nearby tea garden. Not a bad way to spend a weekend.

We were very relaxed at the end of the trip, and the kids were missing it by the time we got back home. Overall, an excellent time in an excellent resort, which we plan on visiting again soon!

Suggest you plan a morning trip to the protected forest that is part of a private tea estate about 3 Klm away - book a 4 wheel jeep.

Also plan a day trip to the riverside resturant the resort manages, about 1 hour away.

I am one of the lucky person who has the experience of staying at the resort from the inception (even before the official opening). Since then I frequented the resort 2-3 times a year with my family and business guest.

The place, surrounding and other experiences are unique compared to other typical resort and luxury hotels, I agree. There are few aspects where it needs management attention to improve: 1) Both the check-in and check-out experience needs improvement. For me most of the cases I found this particular service very lousy, reluctant and non-caring. I often found the reception people were surfing internet, reading newspaper, chatting and even quarelling while I was waiting to be served. I called the manager the reported this at least couple of times but no improvement. 2) The restaurant colses at 10:30 PM, after than even you starve to death you don't get any food services. This resort is located in an isolated place from the city and services like, restuarant etc. are not available close by. So management must consider keeping the option of serving light snacks/food even after 10:30pm. 3) Cleanliness of the bathroom (particularly jacuzzi) and room needs attention. The toiletries provided are of very poor quality - eigher you provide better quality else you don't. Some of the room has got cracked wall and roof, which call for immediate repair.

I gave all these feedback to the manager there but in a recent trip I still found nothing were moved. So I felt to share this here considering the management would notice and take initiatves to improve upon.

Stayed at Nazimgarh for two nights at a conference. Rooms are nice, modern decorations, and kept very clean. Most have a veranda outside where you can watch life go by, and the sun set. Food wasn't great, and service was a bit iffy. Be warned, when we were there there was no internet connection available from the hotel.

What a disappointment this place was:
- Spa is closed indefinitely
- Food in the restaurants and room service was pretty bad (breakfast is only passable meal)
- Food ordered for 21:30 hours was delivered to our room after 4 calls at 22:30 (an hour late without any excuse)
- Staff barely speaks English, so very difficult to interact for non-Bengalis
- Rooms were not properly cleans and there was cockroaches and other bugs there too
- The telephones in the room would suddenly stop working and we had to walk to the reception to complaint
- Electricity was a major issue and hotel would at times even shut their Generators to let them 'cool down'!!
- Considering that it is a resort property, there was nothing to do for us in the middle of no-where
- Our group had older ladies and there were no elevators for them to get to the pool area or even the rooms

While the resort is located in a very beautiful Sylhet valley and one is surronded by nothing but nature - the Resort's management really needs to get its act together to get international travellers. Would never go back or recommend the hotel to anyone ... EVER!!!

Dining:

"Garden Bistro" is set in a valley, its glass walls looking out onto lush green trees and bamboo groves. This multi-cuisine restaurant has expert chefs offering Continental, Thai, Chinese, Indian and Bangladeshi cuisine. It caters to parties both inside and outside (when the weather is dry), in its beautiful adjoining garden. "Hilltop", as the name implies, is a bright, cheerful hilltop restaurant, specialising in Continental cuisine, and is ideal for evening dinning. "Machang", is at the highest point of the Resort. This open air restaurant commands a panoramic view of the skyline with greenery all around. Dining here, with a constant breeze wafting through, allows you to be with nature in its purest form. "Meghalaya Lounge", rising from its own pool of water with view of greenery all around, this building houses the most quaint bar (non- alcoholic at present), Pool room, and TV lounge in the country. "Pool Cafe" is the pool side cafe for daylong snacks and cooling drinks. A favourite of both adults and children.
