This "resort" is located near to the raj bhavan, or the far end of the mall in case you are familiar with the local area of darjeeling. The main city center "the mall" is hardly a 5mins walk, along the mall road where motorists are banned so it is an pleasant walk amongst nature. Though vehicles are banned in the... More

The hotel is located just next to raj Bhabwan which mean no cars allowed and that translates to pure bliss in Darjeeling which has become too noisy and polluted with so many cars. Rooms are really good but it can be improved even further. Not sure why they have wifi only in the lobby..should be in all the rooms. The... More

This was my second stay in the same hotel. We had been there last year too. The best part of the stay is the personal attention by its manager Mr Sarkar. He remembers all his guests by their names and whereabouts. He takes personal interest in arranging things of their interest. The rooms are comfortable. Particularly the suit with a... More

We stayed in this hotel for 2 nights in March. The main USP of this Techno India group of hotel is its amazing location. Situated in a gentle 2 mins walking distance from the Governors House and away from the hustle and bustle of mall, this hotel provides an unobstructed view of the snowcapped mountains right from the comfort of...

I stayed in retreat twice and my experience was amazing. It gives a beautiful view of kanchanjanga range amd perhaps no other hotel can give such view from their rooms.Staff of the hotel were very helpful.Special thanks to the senior manager of the hotel Mr D.P.Sarkar who made our overall experience such a memorable one.

Targeted sightseeing in Darjeeling and stay was booked through travel agent. This hotel was about 10 minutes from Chowrastha (walkable) and 15 minutes from the HMI / Zoo. We had a room on the same floor as the front office, had a view of Kanchendzonga. However due to the fog which had come in, we did not get to enjoy... More
