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

I can only repeat myself - best place at Gangtok. We came back for the 5th time and I feel that this place becomes my 2nd home, not just because of its perfect setting, but also because of the wonderful people that run this place. Thank you so much, Kesang! I already miss your food and am looking forward to... More

Recently stayed for 2 weeks with a university trip and I can't emphasise enough how excellent the Hidden Forest is. From the rooms to the fantastic home cooked meals, the entire experience was faultless

The apartments are spacious with a balcony that has an incredible view of the mountains and city of Gangtok. The food was absolutely delicious and the staff were very helpful... More
