The Yakha Retreat  is a luxury retreat in Kalimpong area of Eastern Indian Himalaya. Our hotel is set in the midst of lush green vegetation, overlooking resplendent snow capped mountain peaks with Mt. Kanchendzonga as its centerpiece and meandering ridges and spurs of Kalimpong, Darjeeling and our neighbor state of Sikkim. In this privileged backdrop we find inspiration, whilst looking towards a vibrant and propitious future. Here grandeur, elegance and style have conspired to create intimacy and warmth without pretension.

Staying true to our culture and history, the hotel has amalgamated a subtle portion of it in its design.

The Yakhas fine blend of inimitably and characteristic eccentricity will find appeal with connoisseurs of tradition, looking for a difference. The Yakha is proud of its individuality but doesn’t flaunt it.

The rooms are a seamless depiction of luxury and poise with immaculately polished wooden furniture and parqueted flooring to ensure all our guests are kept warm while gazing at the the magnificent Himalayas from the rooms’ six feet tall and wall to wall wide windows. The rooms’ 10 inches thick imported spring mattresses ensures that our guests catch a good night sleep away from the maddening crowd with different peaceful heavenly sounds of nature.

All the rooms in the hotel are the epitome of sheer self-indulgence and are designed to perfection to ensure unparalleled experience for guests. The interiors offer style and modern convenience with a hint of traditional aura in equal measure.

Come, indulge at The Yakha…. Come, live in the clouds….
