Orchid Retreat
Ranked #8 of 14 Hotels in Kalimpong
Reviewed 5 May 2016

The Orchid Retreat is a warm, friendly, welcoming guest house just outside of Kalimpong town in a beautifully landscaped 2 1/2 acre property, that was formerly an orchid nursery. There are still a lot of orchids and many other beautiful plants growing all around the property and the rooms. After the hustle and bustle of India, it was such a pleasant change to sleep here and be woken by birds instead of traffic noises. This is a place where you are really treated as a welcome guest. The rooms are comfortable, the dining experience is very personal. The host cooks for the guests herself and takes the trouble to get to know you and find out what you like. If I return to Kalimpong, I will definitely want to stay there again.

Room Tip: All the rooms are good

I only stayed here for one night but loved it, the host is friendly and put me at ease, the food was great and plentiful,
The room was very clean and tidy and I really liked sitting on the balcony surrounded by flowers and birds, so peaceful and relaxing,
I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again,
Thank you for having me, xx

Fantastic stay in a bungalow at the bottom of the garden. Absolutely beautiful with an outside balcony over the garden/ jungle. Fabulous if you like wildlife and bird watching. Amazing meals, very reasonably priced. The owner is a wonderful cook and the meals were some of the best we had. She even made mo mo's for us to try. The gardens are stunning, amaryllis, jasmine and a multitude of other beautiful plants. I would strongly recommend this as a super place to stay.

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.

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
