It was a cloudy day in April 2015, at the “Retreat” next to Rajabhavan (The Governor’s residence & one of the highest spots in Darjeeling – 7100 ft). The room had a glass enclosed annexe that looks out over the hills & the clouds onto the mighty Kunchenjangha (world’s 3rd highest peak – 28169 ft). The cloud on top cleared... More

Pros: 1)...1st thing 1st Mr. DP Sarcar is a gem of a person, he can be the reason why you should revisit Retreat. 2)... Max 5 to 7 mins walk to MALL road (10 to 12 walk to Kevinter's and Glenary's) 3)... All rooms have clear view of Kanchenjunga Range. 4)... The roof of the hotel is basically a public... More

I booked from cleartrip because of good reviews. But before 2 days of checking, cleartrip agent called me with some disgusting excuses to inform my booking was cancelled by hotel. They said that hotel was already full for those days but they didn't update online. And that time I don't have much good option. After efforts we have to adjust... More

We went during the pujas...the hotel is located near the raj bhavan and is far away from the crowded mall area though you can easily walk down to the mall... Kanchenjunga is clearly visible from the rooms itself...the staff of the hotel were courteous and warm and the manager Mr. Sarkar deserves a special mention. The breakfast spread however needs...

If you are looking for a nice and clean hotel room from which you can look at Mt Kanchenjunga while lying down on your bed, or standing at your window, or while getting dressed , or from your balcony while sipping the golden brew, then stop at The Retreat Resort and look no further. Located at a two- minute walk... More

The USP of the hotel is its location.It is completely secluded from the crowd (due its proximity to the Raj Bhavan) ,yet it is just 2 mins away from the mall.The perfect location you might be looking for.The mountain view that you get from the room is breath-taking.The valley view that you get to see from the room is the...
