We were recommended Bamboo Retreat and spent a night there. I can really only wax lyrical about the place, partly because the manager and his staff made such an effort. We had asked for an extra bed for a child but instead they gave us a second room for free. The hotel is in Rumtec, which is across the valley... More

Thank you very much for your feedback! In regard to the walk you ended up doing it may have been more advisable for you to go for another, less steep option. However, to find the footpath / village-path you would require a local guide to accompany you. It goes straigth from Bamboo Retreat through paddy-fields and forested areas, past hamlets... More

We really felt like home, the whole staff, was so friendly, helpful and Suraj and Pema took good care of our needs. The location is great, the rooms very clean, the prayer room a perfect... More

We spend two nights in October 2013... We enjoyed everything... the location, the habitat, the peaceful, the friendly staff, the excellent food and the quality of the rooms. We try to reserve more nights but the booking was loaded. This is a major place near Gangtok to enjoy your journey.

Loved my stay here and enjoyed the warm hospitality and natural environs. Great location, away from the madding crowds and yes, a little far from Gangtok but that made it an ideal place to come back to in the evening after a hectic day out as it is quiet and peaceful. The rooms are very well appointed and each one... More

We spent two nights at the Bamboo retreat. The hotel is set in a very quite and serene area in Rumtek (which very nicely complemented our experience in Gangtok). There is enough to explore in the vicinity of the hotel: the Rumtek Monastery and just walking around the hills near the resort. Very comfortable rooms, nice food and also enjoyed... More

The retreat is located in the middle of nowhere between gangtok and rumtek - which is the purpose of it. It is a great place to relax surrounded by nature alone. It is simple but features stunning views and is charmingly decorated. The rooms are not big but have all necessary amenities including a balcony (we stayed at the bamboo... More

My husband and I stayed here in early May for 6 nights. This place was a great find and we thoroughly enjoyed every moment of our stay. Firstly and thankfully its not located in the crowded city of Gangtok. Its located in Rumtek, on the mountain opposite Gangtok. So you get beautiful views of the capital city without having to...
