About us


Nestled on a slope surrounded by acres of terraced paddy fields, lush bamboo groves, and sub-tropical forest; the Bamboo Retreat Hotel is just a 35 – 45 minutes drive out from the hustle and bustle 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 Helen Kämpf of Switzerland and her Sikkimese Team, the Bamboo Retreat Hotel endeavors to bridge the cultures of the east and west by offering the best of both worlds. Helen has integrated the comforts of western modernity and design with the cultural heritage of the Himalayas and the Northeast.
