Hidden Forest Retreat is a hidden gem. Every minute spent here felt like bliss! Tucked away quietly right before the Mall road, 10kms further above from the famous Mayfair Resort, we were more than happy that the latter was fully booked and we were forced to look for an alternative. To begin with, it's not a 5* property so don't... More

We were in Hidden Forest for three nights. You cannot ask for more when you are out on vacation. Staff is very helpful. The rooms are spacious with individual deck. Lunch, breakfast, dinner menu was changed as per your requirement. One day when it was raining outside, they served us hot pakodas for evening snacks as soon as we requested.... More

This place is surely a heaven on earth. The location , price, food everything is just perfect. The view from the rooms is to die for. One can see the entire valley from here. Being a plant lover I fell head over heels with their garden. They have a huge orchid and green houses. All food served is organic and... More

All that you want and more is this place. It has Orchid variety more than the Flower Show. Food fresher than what we eat at home in large cities/metros. Views that are fantastic. Hosts who are awesome. Library that is very rich. They get you amazing food and customise to your needs. We asked for local delicacies and were immediately... More

This is an awesome property in Gangtok. It's heavenly. And the pricing is just perfect. The property is worth much more than what it's charged for. The rooms are large, with spacious balconies overlooking the hills and the property with each room offering total privacy. Rooms are very clean, comfortable, cheery and the decor of wood, and stone work is... More

Two week stay at the Hidden forest, great views over Gangtok. Well appointed rooms. Excellent food and friendly staff! Staff happy to answer any questions and very knowledgeable about its locality. Ideal residence for our University group to stay at with ample space to congregate as a large group and also to retreat in small groups or by oneself!

Sent my mom and dad along with their friends. Will definitely come back. Awesome hospitality. Great food. Not far from market. Nice and spacious rooms with great view. The property is heavenly. It rightly justify its name. It is worth more than what it charges. P perfect holiday cottages.

Hidden Forest is definitely more of a retreat than a homestay, as lovely planet suggested! It feels like a proper 5 star resort, with orchids and gardens everywhere and a beautiful dining area inside and out. The food was great, with good vegetarian options, and the staff were friendly, efficient and attentive - we would have liked to chat to... More

I was blessed with the chance to attend the university trip and to stay here for 2 weeks. Amazing views and scenery, good location in terms of amenities without being noisy and wonderful home cooked food. Beautiful spotless rooms. The extremely helpful and welcoming staff who acheived the seemingly impossible task of organising taxis at 5 in the morning and... More
