Tripoto's Secret Tip - While you're here in Mayfair Resort and Casino, make sure to explore the hidden gems around this bustling town. Go for a morning drive to Mangan, and catch a glimpse of the first rays of the sun falling on the Kanchenjunga.
Ideal for : Honeymooners, Families, the old & the young - this place fits all.
How to reach - The closest airport is Bagdogra Airport (78 Kms away) and the closest railway station is in Darjeeling (47 Kms away). From your last stop you can take a taxi and reach the resort.
Best time to visit: Spring here would be lovely (between March to May), and so is Autumn (Sept-Oct).
Booking details: You can book your stay here directly at the Mayfair Spa Resort & Casino, Gangtok website or through sites like Booking.com. It will cost you around 12,000 INR including taxes.
* Prices may vary depending on the rooms you chose and also the time of visit.
If you want to enjoy modern amenities without missing out on the culture and the wilderness of the mountains, this would be the best choice. The resort is inspired by Tibetan Architecture - very typical wooden frames beautifully carved and the play of bright colours like gold, red, yellow against the backdrop of lush greenery, grey clouds, mist and the mountain winds amount to an emotion that can only be felt and not expressed in words.
