The Retreat is a wonderful property situated at the best possible location with a breathtakingly panoramic view of the Kanchenjungha ranges. Be prepared with a camera that can capture the view! The food and hospitality is great too, as an added attraction.

A great hospitality from the retreat team. Specially mentioning the name of the manager mr. D P Sarker. Both the Chinese & bengali food was super. Besides that, the ice covered Kanchanjanga top was a great bonus for me. Will love to visit again.

Raju from House Keeping & the room service are also warm efficient & courteous. However the place has elaborate menu card but does not have good availability of dishes. They also do not have... More

We had planned a trip to Kolkata and Andaman. I and my wife went to Kolkata from Pune on 26th. At the last minute we had to change our plan due to bad weather in Andaman and instead opted for Darjeeling. We went to this hotel un-booked, without any knowledge and fell in love with the balcony in the executive... More
