I loved everything about this place—the dreamy location, the clean and comfortable rooms, the cozy fireplace, even the little puppy! But what really stood out was the staff. They are truly incredible, unforgettably wonderful. The staff accommodated our requests for local meals in the Lepcha style, even the interesting millet beer and moonshine-like local alcohol. It was amazing to read...

Loved the experience at this hotel. Truly relaxing and secluded from the hubbub in Gangtok — but close enough for day trips to monasteries and other sites close by. The food cooked by the staff here was also excellent!

The Bamboo Retreat is a little jewel - full of charm and truly magical. Surrounded by Tibetan prayer flags, t's set on a forested slope across the valley from Gangtok, with views of the snow peaks, so there are plenty of walks including to Rumtek monastery, the seat of the Karmapas,Tibet's oldest lineage. The rooms each have a balcony, a...

It's one of the finest stay experiences I have had so far. The place is set up away from the hustle bustle and right amidst the nature. Infact from the hotel one can see the entire gangtok city and snow clad mountains on top of that. The staff is fantastic and so is the food. The thing I loved the...

First thing first- this hotel is located in Rumtek (7 Kms from Mayfair hotel, 16 kms from mall road-Gangtok), not Gangtok. Bamboo Retreat is an excellent hotel located in peaceful location, far from noise and pollution of vehicles and people. The rooms are (color theme based) nice and clean with balconies having 2 chairs and a table with a view...

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.

The location of Bamboo is excellent. About 15 mins walk to MG Marg and yet located in a quiet area. The double room we had was very clean,spacious with attached bathroom, dressing table and a sofa. 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.
