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...

not inside crowded kalimpong, the family calls you a day before to check on your arrival details and meal details, if you inform them your time of arrival someone is waiting to welcome you once you drive in, the entire place is in different levels with cosy cottages and landscaped gardens, water bodies, hens and dogs playing around, beautiful orchid...

The property is well maintained and managed by the owner. He is really passionate and enthusiast as far as his property is related. The best part of the hotel is the quietness inside the property as it is a little away from the main highway and it is far away from the city center. This will ensure you get a... More
