Ideal for individuals or groups on a budget, our standard shared accommodations options consist of four individual cabins sequestered along the valley at the edge of the surrounding forests. Dragon, Garuda, Potala, and Snowlion Cabins each accommodate 8-12 people, with Eva’s Cabin accommodating up to 5.
All offer shared bathrooms, kitchen, and dining/living room spaces, making them ideal for those seeking a group living experience. For those preferring more privacy, Gangtok and Panther Cottages have a total of six private rooms, each with one queen bed. All standard accommodations include cotton linens and towels and signature Menla hand and face soap.
Individuals can book standard shared accommodations as part of any Menla-sponsored group retreats or if they are attending a group retreat of another sponsoring organization. Individuals and couples booking a Personal Getaway must book one of our deluxe options, however if you want to book an entire cabin to Create-Your-Own Getaway with a small group of friends or family, please email us for availability.
“I loved every minute at Menla. It was as if heaven was delivered to me on earth–the people, the food, the services at the spa, even my walks to the meeting room were infused with magic. I was greeted with so much warmth and caring with every interaction.”
“I have many words but I will use this: streams. This whole valley is full of incredible streams. I came as a part of YTTP retreat this past weekend and loved how the valley of Menla just belonged to each and everyone one of us, together and alone at the same time, I stayed at Dragon house and loved how at home you are made feel though no one really is there guiding you, you are your own guide. I will remember this stay for a long time, the 2 days will last a life time. I hope to return one day. Thank you!”
“Menla is one of my favorite retreat centers in the world. The natural beauty, the wonderful staff and great accommodations always make the experience of leading a retreat effortless and graceful. The blessings of HH Dalai Lama and many other Great Beings who have been there usher us into our own True Nature with joy and ease.”
