Reviewed 20 June 2014

If Sikkim is the home to the majestic mountains, then ur lucky to have the best feeling of being by its side , during your stay here. The enthralling view from your balcony keeps your heart alive, and the best time spend is watching the clouds captivating you with their every little move.
The decor is what i like best, a combination of bamboo, local art and contemporary colors used in the rooms.The hotel location is something u should consider as its 40km from Gangtok and takes a lot of money and time to move to and fro from the city, at least Rs 1000 for one way drop , hence it becomes quite an expensive affair if you would be staying for just 2 nights, cause u may run out of time to get an experience of staying in the hotel itself. The good food the warm hospitality and the decor saddens the very thought leaving it in such a short period !!

Room Tip: The balcony rooms are worth every penny!

Bamboo retreat is an excellent place to stay in Gangtok. It is located in a very calm place close to the city. Food is very nice and the service is excellent. Restaurant manager considered our suggestions and served us what we expected. The owner is very humble and very very cooperative in all aspects. The manager and the service team is ready to serve always with a smile. Happy to recommend

Room Tip: Deluxe Room ( it is very spacious and has an excellent view)

bamboo retreat is a very nice place to stay at if you are planning for a holiday in sikkim. The place is too calm and serene. The people of this place make it more comfortable. Mr.Suraj, the manager and his team always have a smile on their face and are ready to help you in everything you want. Though the size of the room we got was little small, we were happy with the view we got from the balcony during sunrise.
The food is extremely good and is served with lot of care and attention. A very comfortable and relaxing three nights-four day stay!

Room Tip: We stayed in blue poppy. Small room, comfortable with good sunrise view

We stayed there after a horrible experience in Darjeeling, May 15th & 16th. Nice location among hills and great views. Could improve on food & service. A bit off the main city, so will be liked by people looking for solace. Though it'll cost you to travel to & fro.
Will go there again, this time for a longer duration.

I spent 4 nights at the Bamboo Retreat, after 8 days of the Goechala trek. It was magic. The food was excellent, the service was excellent, the location was superb and the accommodation was great. I would go back any day. If you want peace, quiet and time to tune out its perfect. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Recommend the Amber room for a single.

We spent 3 days and 4 nights at the bamboo retreat and it was wonderful. I would recommend to come and stay here if you are looking for a relaxing spot from where you can go on day hikes, cultural tours or just chill out in the beautiful surroundings. Suraj and his team really made me and my family feel at home, the food is great and diverse, the rooms homely and clean. I will definitely come back to Bamboo Retreat on my next trip to Sikkim.
