Karma Properties have long been a favorite destination for travelers to Bali, and now you can prepare to be mesmerized as the award-winning global boutique resort brand expands its portfolio of properties, reaching into the picturesque valleys set against the majestic peaks. Himalayas, Karma Martam Retreat. An unmatched fusion of beauty, luxury and tranquility like no other.

Located in the heart of the province of Sikkim, India, just 30 kilometers from the provincial capital Gangtok, Karma Martam Retreat flaunts an elegant setting: in the land of fertile valleys and mirror-like lakes, under the starry sky. Located in a mountainous area, temperatures never exceed 27 degrees, even in the height of summer.

Martam means ‘land of butter and golden barley’ in the local Bhutia language, beautifully rendered throughout the resort’s atmosphere. Karma Martam Retreat is cloaked in the lush forests of the Fambong Lho Wildlife Sanctuary, home to species such as the Himalayan black bear, musk deer, yellow-throated marten, and the incredibly rare bear cat. Also, it overlooks a part of Mount Everest, Nathula Range.

Karma Martam Retreat features 25 elegantly decorated units that feature panoramic views, designed to blend in with their surroundings. Guests can enjoy the indoor heated pool, all-day dining, game room, and Karma Spa, which offers a steam room and sauna. There is also a private organic garden where the resort sources local ingredients, serving guests with the ultimate dining experience.

And there’s more to an awesome place! Discover a beautiful mix of cultures and communities where the three main tribes of the region, the Lepchas, the Bhutias and the Nepalese, reveal a captivating portrait of harmonious unity.

Embark on a disconnected journey to reconnect with nature. Mountain trekking, rhododendron forest walks or conquering the breathless heights of Goecha La Pass – the journey here requires captivating exploration. For the adrenaline junkies, there’s high-octane rafting on the Teesta River and a mountain bike adventure for you to enjoy.

So perhaps after your next stay in Bali, a trip to India is in order!
