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.
