Alkananda Resort
Ranked #9 of 67 Kalimpong B&B and Inns
Reviewed December 26, 2013

Whats good about the place is that its clean and the property is not on the main Kalimpong road so its nice and peaceful. I read a few reviews of the place and decided on it and I wasn’t really disappointed but that is because I wasn’t expecting anything great either. We booked adjoining rooms and it was on first floor with a private balcony and the rooms were basic but quite clean. The balcony has a good view of the neighboring hills. The host was very sweet and friendly and so was the serving staff, although the people in the reception could use a little bit of hospitality lessons. The food was basic but very tasty, nothing that we ordered was bad. Alkananda is a basic, clean place with good food and an okay service.

Stayed: November 2013, traveled with friends

alkananda resort is synonemous with HOME AWAY FROM HOME stay in true sense.........i can not froget the warm welcome by Ms. Subba and the warm hospitality from her as well as from all the service persons.. the resort is truely situated in a very beautiful location facing the Mount Kanchenjongha......the quite and clam nature of the place is also a great combination for true relaxation....... i wil suggest everybody to visit the place and experience it in person

Spectacularly unheeded view of the snow capped mountains on a clear day, surrounded by large swatches of green, Alkananda is a place I return to every time I visit Kalimpong. Home-like atmosphere where you can simply relax sitting or taking a walk through the garden and up the road, it is a perfect get away for those seeking a quite atmosphere.

Room Tip: Ask for the room on the top--it provides a panoramic view of the mountains on a clear day.

The resort is best known for its beautiful location facing the magnificent Mt.kanchenjunga. Its little away from crowd. The owner Mrs Sanjogita Subba is very nice person and very helpful. Stuffs are very good and helpful. Alkananda Resort is an ideal place for relaxation with a lovely garden and nice view of Mt.kanchenjunga.
