        The location will hit you right out as it is ideally secluded with a spectacular view of the Himalayan Ranges right from the room. The Hotel staff were very courteous. The food was very good and made as per our requirement and surprisingly affordable. I usually never write reviews but this is for my fellow travelers who may/should visit this hotel....... One must have a long chat with the Manager who is very knowledgeable on topics related to Sikkim. Seek his guidance regarding the food one must taste, places one must see, Buddhism and its background. The place initially may make you feel a little too secluded but since we stayed for three days we felt not only safe but at home. Seek the Mnagers guidance for local trekking spots as there are many and we missed a few. I really recommend at least two days stay in Ravangla and particularly in this Resort. Rooms are quite spacious and well maintained. My family just loved it.

        Good property away from crowd”

        Definitely it is one of the best properties available in Ravangla. Superb location with un-parallel views of Kanchenjhanga. Staff are well behaved , welcoming in attitude but room service takes relatively longer time to get execute. Please avoid taking cold drinks otherwise Jhatka Jorsei Lagega. Complementary bottle of water , toiletries are not up to expectations. Still can be visited further to enjoy Himalaya from the nestle of the country side of Sikkim.

        I visited Barfung Retreat with my family and fell in love with that place.”

        The view was stunning. The cottages were beautiful and the rooms and washrooms were large. It was December around Christmas and very cold - we got plenty of hot water to shower. There was a well stocked library with a view of the Eastern Himalayas. The landscaping within the resort was very nice. Most importantly the service staff was friendly, attentive and the service was very personal. Food was on order and was served piping hot in the dining hall. Wifi was non-funtional but that was a boon and an escape. TV in the room and reading books was good enough. We had a bonfire at night and the boys played cricket with the kids of the resient staff....will go back there for sure.

        Good place wasted by poor management”

        It is a good location for people looking for a retreat away from crowds and the tourist circuit , birding and contemplation. The rooms were clean , well equipped for travellers and well designed and positioned for great mountain views The arrival experience , reception and the dining hall can be much more cozy and welcoming. It gives you a bit of an anxiety attack about the place. The worst is the staff attitude and management. Our breakfast especially on the day we left was very poor. The attitude to shortchange us on items part of the package was very obvious. The service quality for the paid dinners was in total contrast. The manger Dinesh was not capable of handling the guests 's needs or staff. Overall it is a potentially good place if the staff is improved.
