The King’s Resort Gangtok, Sikkim
A vintage yet luxurious boutique resort nestled in the heart of the hilly city of Gangtok.
Be spellbound by the authentic décor with beautiful colonial undertones the minute you walk inside. The spacious lobby is furnished immaculately with Oriental printed rugs and cushions, stark artworks - all well lit under the shimmering chande
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.

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!
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.
The outdoor gazebo is the perfect place to sip your Darjeeling tea and enjoy the mountainside view dotted with quaint villages
