The Dewachen Retreat is a somewhat simple but adequate hotel where I stayed one night on my way through the Spiti Valley. I had a smallish room with big bed that was actually twin beds pushed together. The matching bedding and curtains were a nice touch and the wooden floor was warm underfoot. There were also a couple of canvas “directors” chairs and small coffee table. There was no TV in the individual rooms but there was one in the dining room. My room was at the back of the building away from the road and shared a balcony with the room next door. It was a simple matter to carry one of the light canvas chairs outside for the quiet village and mountain views while sipping an early morning cup of coffee. The bathroom was small but complete with an individual geyser. There was no internet which is generally the case in the area and my US telephone and those of my Mumbai-based Indian companions could not access a cell phone network either. However, our guide was able to hook into a reasonably stable network with his BNSL SIM. We had dinner and breakfast at the hotel which served good, plain Indian food. We also met the owner who spoke good English and provided interesting and useful information about travel in the Spiti Valley. Overall the Dewachin Retreat is a fairly simple place but perfectly adequate for any overnight stay while passing through the Spiti Valley.

This place offered us the best stay in the entire Spiti valley. We were welcomed with such hospitality, and warmth, that this place and the people will always remain in our hearts. The rooms are well appointed, with a nice balcony at the rear overlooking the Tabo monastery. The caves were simply across the narrow road infront of the retreat. Though on the main road, we loved our stay here, as the place was calm and awesome. We would surely love to go back here and stay longer the next time. The service was EXCELLENT. The dinner was fantastic, and so was the breakfast. Mr. Kedar Chettry was a great chef, and his cousin (sorry I forgot the name) Mr. Chetri took good care of us. They also asked us to stop by on the day of our return from Kaza, for a cup of tea, which we did. Thanks for all your hospitality.

Tabo is a beautiful serene quiet place and is very very small. This hotel is bang on the main road and is walking distance to the Tabo monastery and the caves. Staff is helpful and alert. Food is average. Rooms are ok and on the smaller side and bathroom was big and clean. The room had a balcony overlooking the Tabo monastery and wheat fields. However the balcony is shared and all rooms open into the same balcony so lack privacy. Would recommend the management consider building a basic partition to ensure privacy and no disturbance to anyone.

i went to this place in may 2019 after a long and tired journey from shimla to kaza and then back to tabo. This was just a second home to us .more precisely" A home away from home." The staff was very cooperative and even the owner is a very genuine person.
