My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights. The deck at the entrance is brilliant to just sit and hang out. The room was nice and clean; the view, however, was breathtaking. We were lucky that we got clear skies on both the days. You can see the Kanchenjunga from your bed! Location was fantastic for us. We didn't...

It's a well maintained small and cute resort. It's closer to mall road with panoramic view of Mt Kanchenjunga. Rooms are small with all basic facilities - complimentary breakfast is prepared as per your choice. Resort has beautiful open terrace surrounded with flowers. Shortfall - no Wifi facility in rooms. You have to be in reception.

We booked two rooms in the hotel. Both the rooms had fantastic views of Mount Kanchenjunga and slopes. The hotel is walking distance from the Mall/Chowrasta (approx. 700 mts, 10 mins walk) yet in a very quite area with beautiful views from the terrace +room. The property is an excellent place to stay and be around the Mall, Raj Bhawan....

A real relaxing hill station is Darjeeling & especially hotel ‘The Retreat’ which will treat you like a King. A beautiful place close to nature creations and away from the crowded mall Roads shopping complexes. The Retreat is worth staying to admire ‘Kanchenjunga’ and valley from the room.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Laced by horizon-kissing green tea-estates and foggy hills, Darjeeling is the 'Queen of the Hills' in all its own splendour. For the world tourists, trekkers and globetrotters, Darjeeling is the gate to a tranquil world that is filled with enchanting and breath-taking picturesque beauty. The sunrise from atop the Tiger Hill is mysticism beyond compare. And who ever misses a walk to the Mall Road for some woollens shopping, or a ride on the famous toy-train that whistles its way through the greenery? Darjeeling will wrap you in its beauty, and your stay at The Retreat will make your trip more memorable. Here at The Retreat, you can see the Kanchenjunga peak from every room! ... more   less
