Orchid Retreat
Ranked #8 of 14 Hotels in Kalimpong
Reviewed 7 April 2016

My husband and I spent four nights in the Palm Cottage. The retreat is approximately a 20 minute walk from Kalimpong, but a world apart. We thoroughly enjoyed the beauty of our cottage, the lush grounds, the quiet, the food and the owner who understood our needs and provided us with the right balance of service and privacy. The one thing to keep in mind is that this is not a hotel and although you can set your specific meal times, the food provided on any given day will reflect the preferences or needs of the guests as a whole. In our case, we had just dealt with some health issues and needed to be very cautious (e.g. no spicy foods, dairy, etc.), which might have resulted in other guests having a less traditional Indian meal than they would have wanted.

Stayed: March 2016, travelled as a couple

So nice to step into our small cottage with cosy balcony overlooking a vast green garden. Around the cottage were glorious bright flowers and a wonderful business of orchid propagation. The hospitality and food and service were top rate

Excellent stay, innovative and tasty food. The owner is a nice person. BaBal the helping boy is really punctual and attentive. Clean every where and a beautiful garden with a huge collection of flowers and trees and birds.

If you're looking for earthly amenities like wi-fi, TV in the room etc., don't go here. For that matter avoid the himalayan region altogether cause that's totally missing the point of visiting a place like Kalimpong.
If on the other hand you're looking for a cottage in a tropical paradise with flowers and orchids and birds and gorgeous views of the mountains and clouds, I cannot think of a better place to be in. The cottages are spanking clean and comfortable and very tastefully decorated - just perfect for the surroundings.
We ate breakfast here - cornflakes, milk, toast, buns and choice of eggs and tea/coffee. We also got puris and veggies one morning - all very good. The hosts are totally awesome and will help you get a taxi and provide concierge services as needed.

From the time you step into The Orchid Retreat you are transported into another world. One finds a variety of plants, flowers, birds and butterflies in the resort premises.Very peaceful, away from the hustle and bustle of the main town.The cottages are clean, spacious and offer amazing views. Fresh, homemade food, personally supervised by the hostess adds to the charm of the place. Highly recommended. Hospitality at its best!
