“Peaceful and Calm...”
Reviewed 18 April 2014

My friends and me had an amazing time at Holumba Haven. The cottages were very comfy and warm. One of the best parts was the location of it. The food was very tasty and the weather was very beautiful.

Holumba was the best place I've stayed in in India. The staff was very pleasant and helpful. Our rooms were not very big but very very comfortable. The cool weather made it perfect for the bonfires and cultural evenings we had. The food we had was the best ever. The place overall was just awe inspiring and beautiful.

We were informed of the room tariff through email sent by a female called Thaili!
Upon asking her to give the package inclusive of breakfast....the lady's mannerism shocked me! Her reply,'I have told you, can I go back to work now!
Whatever rate the resort offers is okay but such rudeness and lack of mannerism is definitely uncalled for!!

The concept of Holumba is simply beautiful. The small cottages were warm and comfortable. Long walks, singalongs and storytellings beside the bonfires every night made the experience more adventurous and mysterious. The antiques placed all around were very traditional and a bit horrifying. Food provided were delicious. Overall, I was glad to receive an outdoor delight and hope to return soon.

One of the best resorts I have stayed. Situated in the midst of serene nature, this is the best location for a relaxing holiday while having a view of the heavenly Kanchenjunga. The family who looks after the entire property is immensely helpful to make our stay a really memorable one. Right from guiding about the sightseeing tours of Kalimpong, Lava, Loneygaon, Rishyap, Pedong, etc. to the rich historical and cultural features of the surrounding places and Buddhist monasteries, they had all the info. The cottages were clean and neatly done with very good views. Also had one of the best foods over there. No bad experiences as such, the only thing is that, the day we checked in, we were very tired and we had to wait for around 2 hours for the room as we had reached before 12 noon which is their check in time. Though we were taken care of by refreshing tea and coffee. The room charges are very reasonablet hough the meal charges felt to be little pinching, but after experiencing the quality of the meals, the pinching effect was quite soothing.

Room Tip: Tree Tops cottages are really the best as per me
