The Bamboo Retreat - A Himalayan Boutique-Hotel

Khamri! Tashi Delek! Namaste! Welcome!

Cozily ensconded on a slope surrounded by acres of terraced paddy fields, lush bamboo groves and sub-tropical forest the Bamboo Retreat is located only a 30 min. drive out from the blare and babble of Gangtok.

Established by Swiss Helen Kämpf and her Sikkimese Team the Bamboo Retreat endeavors to bridge the cultures of the east and west by offering the best of and to each world.

From the secluded comfort of your own private balcony, you can enjoy the panoramic vista of the city of Gangtok with the Himalayas towering in the background. In the evenings you can relax with a cup of tea and a good book while the chirping of the birds and the tick ticking of the insects from the forest all around will be the only sounds you’ll hear.

Our panoramic restaurant offers local sikkimese as well as Indian, Chinese and even Italian cuisine. You can meditate in our traditional prayer hall, take guided village- and monastic walks, interact with the villagers or relax in a refreshing herbal bath made from homegrown fresh herbs.

Come and enjoy Sikkim’s warm hospitality with us and experience its mystique in the truest sense of the word.
