The noun "retreat" means a place you can go to be alone, to get away from it all. Wild Flower Retreat in Borong, South Sikkim situated in the Silent Valley of Maenam Sanctuary offers you your personal time with the Himalayas. Surrounded by forests and mountains, the resort comprises of rooms and log cottages fusing rustic elements with contemporary design. True to its name, all the units and cottages are within a 2 acre wild flower garden. Snow peaks like Siniolchu, Pandim and Narsing stand as sentinels of the horizon. The resort offers an excellent vantage point for watching rare birds including the Striped Throated Yuhinas, Streak-Throated Barwings, Loten's sunbirds, Rufous-gorgeted Flycatchers, Scimiter Babblers and Laughing thrushes. About 130 kilometres from the nearest airport Bagdogra and nearest railhead at Siliguri, Borong is well connected by road. Our inhouse restaurant serves fresh food made to order. If you love a quiet, peaceful vacation in the mountains, visit us.

Thank you for a very encouraging review. We try hard to make each of our guests experience a memorable stay at this remote location. And when you mentioned that all in your team aged from 8 to 80 were happy, we feel our job was done right. There are still ways to improve. We are installing some gas powered geysers centrally so that we can supply hot water on demand quickly during power cuts. Note that we have generator backups and invertors, but those are not enough to run high wattage geysers. We sincerely hope you visit us again and take back some more great memories.

Borong is a very small village near Ravangla near about 10km. So calm and quiet you can even hear your own breath... The resort is simple with awesome views.. You can't expect luxury here but it's a perfect gateway from for tiring city life.
