This is a really beautiful place, full of flowers, very hospitable family run, delicious home grown food (must try!). We showed up by accident and were lucky to discover such nice place! Strongly recommend!

Hotel is located a little far from the main city Area (MG Road), but its a beautiful place with a view to kill for. They grow maximum of their fruits and vegetables in their own garden and the food tastes amazing like home cooked meal. The rooms are cozy and service is also prompt.

Stay was wonderful. It gives pleasure of being close to nature and resort in true sense. It's like home away from home. You can see all types of orchids in this resort. It's clam and serene. Staffs are polite and humble. Glad that stayed there.

One of the best places to stay in Kalimpong. Hidden forest as the name goes is surrounded by hills and the owner has planted many types of orchids that is a delight to your eye. The rooms and facilities are top notch and food is just amazing.

One of the nicest hotels we have ever stayed in, with great views and stunning gardens. The owners were extremely helpful and the rooms were very comfortable and attractive. There was also an excellent library for use by guests. Although a couple of miles from the centre of Gangtok, it is easy to find quite interesting routes to walk in...

The Hidden Forest is the most amazing places to stay if you're in Gangtok area. While it is called a retreat, the place is run like a homestay by Mrs Tshering and her daughter Kesang.

This is a basic hotel run by very friendly and accommodating staff. There are many levels to this place, all with great views, but not wheelchair friendly. The owner grows orchids and the gardens are an absolute delight. You need transport to access any of the main attractions in the area. There is no heating in the rooms, but a...

The room was very comfortable. This place is not far from the downtown area of Gangtok. All the people working there are incredibly kind and eager to make their guests feel at home. It was amazing to stay at Hidden Forest Retreat, and especially to wake up each morning surrounded by all sorts of beautiful plants and nursery work.

The Hidden Forest Retreat is in Middle Sichey, Gangtok, and a short taxi ride from Mahatma Gandhi Marg (‘downtown’ area). It is a homestay, but much more. The room was spacious and clean, with its own private balcony and the sit-out offered a lovely view of the valley and beyond. The place is full of fruit and flower trees and...
