Rooms are comfortable with balconies, the nightview of gangtok was beautiful, lovely garden and amazing breakfast! We were there with a motorbike tour, and it was the prefect place for us to relax and unwind. We did yoga and meditation in the prayer room, it's one of the most special prayer room i've ever been in.

No, it’s not in Gangtok. It’s set amid forested mountains in a garden of truly earthly delight! Beautiful views of the surrounding countryside. Fabulous food. Cold beer. Warm fire. Wonderful opportunities for hiking/walking to local monasteries through tiny villages. Quiet. Peace-filled. A great vibe. Best of all, though, is the staff. So kind, so generous with their time, so hospitable. Making momos with Longmit and others in the kitchen—one of the most memorable experiences of my time in India. Group hugs, and, oh, the raucous, joyous laughter. They told us we felt like family, and we felt the same. We loved our time in this lovely home away from home with people who made us feel right at home. Highly recommended.❤️

We stayed at Bamboo Retreat for 2 weeks and i can honestly say it was one of the loveliest places we stayed in all of India. Not only does it sit in gorgeous Sikkimese countryside and boast outstanding views of the mountains, the staff are also unfailingly attentive, kind and welcoming. There are many beautiful monasteries and Lepcha villages to visit in the surrounding area, and the manager Suraj was no end of help when it came to organising day trips further afield. The rooms are incredibly comfortable and tastefully decorated, and the food is delicious. All around amazing place, would recommend to anyone!

Dear Sir/Mam Tashi Delek from Sikkim.. Thank you for taking the time to write about your experience. We're thrilled to hear that you enjoyed your time locally, as well as on property. Hotel Bamboo Retreat is placed uniquely opposite hill of Gangtok town, making it perfect for relaxing and unplugging. It's also a great destination to find just about any hiking/monastic adventuring tour within few hours only.. We're looking forward to seeing you again! With best Regards Suraj Basnet
