GREAT FOR

    This resort in Pelling is spectacular and luxurious place to stay for couples and group who would like to be pampered in the authentic Sikkimese way.

What we love

  • High up in the Himalayan hills of Sikkim, stands a haven of peace and luxury, steeped in Sikkemese architectural design and style, cocooned by a bird sanctuary and the premier monastery in the area offering breathtaking views of the snow capped mountains beyond. Welcome to your abode of calm and serenity!
  • Bordered by the countries of Nepal, Tibet and China, the architectural design and style of structures in Sikkim has been influenced from all these regions giving rise to a style that’s distinctively unique. The earliest structures in Sikkim were monasteries, set up to promote Buddhism, that were built using a locking system of architecture to combat frequent earthquakes while intricate carved wood-work on the windows, balustrades and doors, distinguished the home of a person of importance from that of the common man. Here, you’ll see the intricate monastic designs that skilled craftsman have created using stone and wood, resulting in a space that perfectly fuses the ancient and the modern.
  • The bedrooms, designed after the quarters of a Buddhist monk, offer enchanting views of the Kanchendzonga range in the distance! Wake up to views of orange coloured peaks while lazing around in the wooded bedroom admiring relics and art that have passed the test of time. For an indulgent experience, replete with Sikkimese aesthetics, opt for the suites.
  • Go on a trek around the resort, through small villages and age old trees. While on these refreshing walks, discover a recreated Lepcha tribal home with traditional wooden utensils.

What to know

  • The resort has a traditional Sikkimese restaurant where you can sample a variety of local dishes - pakku - a traditional mutton curry served with rice, tama - a dish made from non fermented bamboo shoot, chhurpi-ningro - a curry made from wild edible ferns and cottage cheese! You must also try some of the local alcoholic beverages that play an important part in rituals and ceremonies in Sikkim. Try raksi - a distilled wine or chhang - a local beer imitation an the cozy bonfire set up under the light of the shimmering stars.
  • Fresh organic ingredients as well as many food produce and rice used at the resort have been cultivated in the region; the vegetables, herbs and spices, cardamom, tea and fruits are grown in the resort garden. You can choose to relish your food indoors or choose to eat outside on the stone-paved patio with divine views of the valleys of West Sikkim.
  • Get a relaxing and rejuvenating traditional herbal stone bath, dottho. Local herbs, tangsti and phuzhu, known for their healing properties, are released in the water - an experience that’ll certainly be a balm for your tired body and soul.
  • The hotel’s owner is a visionary and a monk who turned into a renowned filmmaker. His passion for film-making and all things related to movies can be seen in various parts of the resort. There’s even a private movie theatre in-house! Watch the classic film ‘Sikkim’ by Satyajit Ray while here perhaps?
  • Internet is available only in the lobby area, though that too can be patchy more often than not.

Awesome Things to do nearby

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.
