We have visited Hidden Forest retreat on December end of 2015 after our adventurous journey through mesmerising Icy cold Silkroute of Padamchen nd Nathang valley. Booking process is easy enough through email nd then phone call. On arriving the Hiddenforest homestay it reminded me instantly of Kaluk's MANDARIN VILLAGE RESORT as far as the Wooden rooms, magnificent views, serenity nd... More

An absolutely great place, owned and run by family, it sure gives a feeling of home away from home. the food is simply awesome and their private garden supplies all the necessary ingredients / vegetables, etc. Although accessible by public transport being a resort it away from Mall road. One might need taxis all the time to reach this place.

We stayed at the Hidden Forest Retreat between 01-04 December 2015 and had a magical time. My husband and I had stayed in HFR earlier in December 2009 and loved it. We decided to bring my parents. They found HFR magical and talk fondly of the warmth extended by Kesang and her parents, the food served and the views. It... More

Stayed here for the duration of a university field trip with 25 others. The hotel coped with the high volume of us perfectly, with the ever present staff being warm and welcoming. The food was lovely, locally sourced and tasty. The staff of the hotel were willing to help us with research and advice and even made free their lovely... More

This is an absolute gem of a place and simply the place to stay in Gangtok - so long as it's not a 5 Star you are after. This is frankly much more charming and organic than that. We arrived after various misadventures and difficult journeys in Sikkim and Hidden Forest & the Lachungpa family who run it, soothed us... More

We had a great stay at the Hidden Forest Retreat. The staff were very hospitable and the rooms were of a good standard. The views from the hotel were amazing and the hotel is in a great location close to the centre of Gangtok. Would certainly recommend and visit again.

We arrived, a group of 8 of us, after a rather arduous road trip from Pelling. The Hidden Forest Retreat was a real oasis of calm and after a very welcome cup of tea, we were made to feel very much at home. The rooms were beautifully presented and immaculately maintained. Both breakfasts and the evening meal we had at... More

This location is attractive, clean, comfortable and extremely good value (the facilities are certainly European in style). Its special features, however, include the owners who are friendly but, with many contacts, fonts of knowledge about locations to visit, people to meet and where you can get information. Another attribute is the extensive and varied gardens which supply some of the... More

This hotel is like an oasis in the middle of bustling Gangtok with large clean rooms with lovely views across the valley towards Rumtek and beautiful gardens filled with stunning orchids. The owners and staff are very helpful and we highly recommend this place if ever in Gangtok.

We spent 4 days at the Hidden Forest and had a wonderful time. It is indeed a home away from home. This is the best place I have stayed in this far and I doubt I will come across a more beautiful place ever... Kesang and her parents are a delight and the staff is well trained too. Thanks Kesang...
