GREAT FOR

    Couples, families as well as those with a penchant for history and art, will find this resort perfect for their stay in Gangtok.

What we love

  • Centrally located in the town of Gangtok, Sikkim this luxury boutique hotel is the perfect home base for all your sightseeing plans. The moment you spot the beautiful well-lit façade of this heritage resort with the manicured gardens set against the bright cerulean sky you know you’re in for a sumptuous treat in the ‘house of jewels’. Originally, the guesthouse of the King of Sikkim, this hotel has been visited by His Holiness the Dalai Lama and many international celebrities as well.
  • The moment you set a foot here and are greeted in traditional Sikkimese style with a silk stole, you’ll feel the hospitality of royal lineage! Walk on further inside and you’ll be spellbound by the authentic décor with beautiful colonial undertones. The spacious lobby is furnished immaculately with Oriental printed rugs and cushions, stark artworks - all well lit under the shimmering chandeliers.
  • The elegant bedrooms, with teak wood flooring and subtle furnishings, are reminiscent of an era gone by. Few of the rooms offer splendid views of the mountains. The suites come with an additional living area where you can entertain guests in style!

What to know

  • Relish the local dishes of Sikkim such as ‘gundruk’, a vegetarian soup made with mustard leaves, cauliflower and radish, or Dalai Lama’s favourite, ‘sokham bexe’, a dish cooked with fried dough, minced meat and butter, or go the whole hog with a traditional thali. For those not feeling experimental, the restaurant also offers Continental and Asian delicacies. Having a meal at the opulent dining area is as much of a gustatory delight as a visual treat!
  • The outdoor gazebo is the perfect place to sip your Darjeeling tea and enjoy the mountainside view dotted with quaint villages while if you’d like a taste of the local beer, the in-house Oriental themed bar, beautifully decorated with ‘thangkas’ - a Tibetan/ Buddhist painting on silk, usually depicting a Buddhist deity or scene.
  • Experience the warm hospitality of the the manager and staff - nothing is too much trouble ever! They’ll go out of their way to take care of you and help you explore Sikkim just like the locals.

Gurudongmar Lake

​Gurudongmar lake located in North Sikkim is one of the highest lakes in the world! Legend has it that the lake remained frozen most of the year thereby not able to provide drinking water to the locals who appealed to Guru Padmasambhava when he was on his way back from Tibet. The guru obliged by blessing a part of the lake. That part of the lake remains unfrozen through the year and acts as a source of drinking water to the people of the area!

Visit this wonder when you’re in Sikkim while saying hello to yaks and blue sheep that inhabit the region. Get lost in the unpolluted colours of blue and white while soaking in the panoramic vistas of the mountains around.

The region is frequented by landslides and snow covered roads. Make sure you check weather conditions before you head out.
