nice place, natural surrounding, calm environment... the management interest is restricted to your confirmation on food...... door wasn't getting locked and no one bothered to visit.... but a very good place to stay....

This is a wonderful property...with lots of trees. A little away (1km Approx) from the town centre. You would get share taxis from this place to the town. We stayed in Woodcot. The food here has to be preordered. They are made fresh and served to you piping hot in the dining area. A lovely place to unwind from the... More

This was a great place to stay after our trek, firstly, because it had the luxury of a quiet, shady garden with lots of seating/swings and secondly, because the room/cabin was spacious, with a hall/sitting place and had a little “laundry room” with a back door to washing lines where we could dry clothes. This meant we could sort through... More

The seemingly hidden entrance to this heaven once crossed sees a flight of stairs as if its the highway to heaven.But once you have checked in to their cosy cottages you are in a place of eternal peace. As the owner of the place Mr. Karma explained the absence of tv sets in the rooms is to ensure total serenity,you... More

The setting is sublime, with countless flowers and orchids surrounding you. Water comes from an onsite spring and is fresh and clean. The hosts and their staff are friendly, knowledgeable and extremely hospitable. The food is excellent and local in character, especially the dinners which are not to be missed.

They have different types of orchids, basically it is an orchid nursery. You can notice the utensil and room decorations, especially the restaurant. You can see different types of wall clock here.

Beauty in itself, peaceful, middle of nature, lot of personal space, good food.... Staying at Holumba staying at Holumba is a definition of holiday by itself. You may not need to explore rest of the attractions if you are looking for a peaceful family holiday....

Our decision to visit Kalimpong was so sudden that we didn't have the time to book hotel in advance. This hotel being situated at the entry point of Kalimpong and having a vacant room made us to choose this instantly. And I must say we were lucky to pick this one. It is a very good option for the nature... More
