The Elgin Mount Pandim Hotel,
India, West Bengal
Info : The Elgin Mount Pandim Hotel
First owned by the royal family of Sikkim, the Elgin Mount Pandim Hotel is still the peaceful forest retreat it was many years ago with incredible views of the Singalia range. Nestled up 6000 feet above sea level in the Himalayas, this luxury heritage resort is perfect for wandering through the ancient monastery next door, taking in the views, and exploring the incredible mountainous surroundings.
The town of Pelling is known for its surrounding landscapes and historic sites. The 300 year old Pemayangtse Monastery is just a few minutes walk away, where you can still see religious dance performances. Just ten minutes away, the fascinating Rabdanse ruins are hidden in an orchid-filled forest grove.
The resort itself is set on eight acres of oak forest, beaming with old world charm and landscaped gardens. The 30 rooms all overlook the Himalayas and the valleys, elegantly furnished with modern facilities and private bathrooms. The décor is simple and reflects the Sikkimese way of life with a warm ambience. Enjoy the wood fires, the gazebo in the garden, relaxing spa facilities, and Sikkimese specialties from the kitchen. Elgin Mount Pandim Hotel is a charming and relaxing way to spend a few days exploring this beautiful virgin region of the Himalayas.
Deluxe - This is our first really 'upmarket' category. It might be a beautiful tiny hotel with very limited facilities or a 5* resort hotel with all the trimmings; but any hotel in this category will be a well-run establishment with very comfortable rooms, a strong service ethos and excellent food.
