Location is up a mountain and 40 mins minimum from Gantok and there was no taxi to drop us into town so had to walk for ages and doubt the distance is 7km as listed. Shower leaked so water went everywhere.

More like a suite than a double. The view of Mt K from the room window at sunrise is fantastic. The garden with plenty...

We had an excellent room overlooking the beautiful valley and towards Gangtok. The staff were very gentle and helpful in every way. It made our stay restful, interesting and beautiful. Our guide was intelligent, knowledgeable and very courteous; indeed an excellent companion for our visit to Sikkim.

We didn't stay at the Bamboo Retreat but our group had a big lunch there. The lunch was super delicious and the service was great. At some point, someone remarked that it was the best meal we've had since our 7 days in India. The folks were super nice and gave us a tour of the organic garden and gave...
