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.

The best place to stay in Kalimpong. They will bring you in a different world. All the cottages are great, the ambience was so good. 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. Staying here is... More

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

I was expecting this place to be great as the reviews said so, and on first arrival i thought so too. But after spending a little bit of time here i came to realize that it needs serious overhauling to give a more comfortable stay to its guests. My one and only complaint of this place which really broke my... More

We were waiting for a getaway and here we were at such a quiet and peaceful place. Kalimpong itself do not offer much in terms of a traveler experience but yet the feel of it is awesome. It is a sleepy town which wakes up around 7 am and sleeps at 7 in evening apart from market bustle it usually... More

We visited Holumba in a group of six. The place is sprawled over the slope of a hill, with cottages at different levels. We had the Tree Tops cottage - one of the two cottages located at the top-most point of the property. Tree Tops is located slightly away from the other cottages which let us make as much noise...
