The food is excellent and so is the location - away from congested Gangtok, surrounded by greenery and near Rumtek monastery (4 kms away).. Positives : - Excellent location, peaceful, good...

Located away from the hustle-bustle of the city, it offers a pleasant retreat away from the hustle bustle of the town. I started feeling healthy once I stayed here. It...

A small & cosy retreat with clean & green boutique rooms, with all the basic amenities, personalised service, sumptuous organic food and a picturesque location makes this retreat truly unique. The General Manager- Suraj and his team is quite co-operative and tries to meet the requirements to the extent possible. The slightly poor road condition from the main road towards...

We spent 5 wonderful days in the Bamboo Retreat near Gangtok. The hotelstaff is very friendly and warmly, the food was ecellent and the rooms are clean and cozy. The hotel is surrounded by nature and you can go for a walk directly from the hotel. If you need any support the staff is always there to care for you.

I have just stayed five nights at the Bamboo Retreat. I was not feeling well for two of these nights and the concern and caring of the staff in general and manager in particular was astounding. It is a beautiful hotel. It takes about 45 minutes to get into Gangtok. It involves shared or private taxis for about 10 dollars...
