Tathagata Retreat

Hotel in Ravangla (Rabongla)

Want to sleep where the Dalai Lama stayed in 2013? Then book suite 303 in this gently stylish hotel, whose restaurant exits directly into the Buddha Park. Some cheaper rooms have superb views, but beware that certain attic rooms would require lying on the floor to see out of the windows, and some walls show blistering paintwork.
