The Bamboo Retreat - a Himalayan Boutique-Hotel
Khamri! Tashi Delek! Namaste! Welcome!
Nestled on a slope surrounded by acres of terraced paddy fields, lush bamboo groves and sub-tropical forest the Bamboo Retreat is located only a 35 minutes drive out from the blare and babble of down-town Gangtok.
Come and enjoy the peaceful energy of the ground, the enchanting panoramic view of the Nathula-Himalayan range across the valley and our unique blend of Swiss-Sikkimese cuisine & hospitality.
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. Helen has integrated the comforts of western modernity and design with the cultural heritage of the Himalayas and the Northeast.
At The Bamboo Retreat intercultural learning is an ongoing process – customer satisfaction, aesthetics, hygiene, ecological and social soundness here are a high priority.
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. In the evenings enjoy a drink by the cheminée-fire or try our unique regenerating herbal- or traditional hot stone bath. You can also book massage therapy, guided meditaiton, ethnic cuisine classes or go for our lepcha cultural experience to gain deep insights into rural Sikkim. You can meditate in our traditional prayer room, enjoy guided natrue-walks and visit monasteries - or explore our organic garden with a wealth of local vegetables and medicinal plants.
Our panoramic Garden Restaurant offers local Sikkimese as well as Indian, Chinese and even Italian cuisine. You can also try a typical local dinner: Try lepcha cuisine served on a banana leaf or try Bhutia or Nepali ethnic cuisine. Our bar offers some good drinks to close a pleasent day in front of the chimney, by the open fire. Upon prior notice we serve tasty Pizza freshly baked in our traditional italian oven as well as Tandoor items.
Drop in for our DAILY LUNCH SPECIAL from noon to 4 pm or pre-order if you are a group or want to go for Pizza or Tandoor items.
Throughout the year we are open and have special party-packages on offer too, please contact us! email@example.com
Come and enjoy Sikkim’s warm hospitality with us and experience its mystique in the truest sense of the word. We look forward to welcoming you to our little paradise! Bamboo Retreat Team
