“Most memorable stay”
Reviewed March 13, 2014

We stayed at various properties in our entire trip in Darjeeling ,Pelling and Gangtok but stay at this resort was our best stay amongst all resorts we stayed at .As all the reviews speak here , the Kanchenjunga views were breath-taking from the resort nd having breakfast and tea in lawns of resort while admiring Kanchenjunga was such a feeling we cant ever forget .Received such a amazing hospitality from staff and such an amazing food with lot of options to eat and everything was so delicious ....I don't eat spicy food , so I requested them and we got such a wonderful food on each occasion ..they really treat their guests like prince /Queen. We really loved our stay at their lovely cottage It was such a homely comfort at the cottage ...Would love to go back again at this resort ...Just 10 minutes walk from resort is Helipad view point , where one can have amazing views of Kanchenjunga as well ...

Room Tip: Cottages are warm and cozy in winters as they have wooden interiors ..

Excellent resort suggested by my friend - very good staff/ hospitality - nothing much to do at the property but when you have such extraordinary visuals of the peaks you dont need anything else - good food

This place has one of the best views of the Kanchenjunga. Though we got very little of the view because we visited in end December for 2 days. We got rolling mists throughout the day and about an hour of the Kanchenjunga peaks in dazzling sunshine. But that was still awesome!
The rooms are very cozy due to the heater and wooden floors. The large windows offer a great view. The food is patchy. Their Chinese food is far better than the other cuisines. The whole team is very warm and hospitable but I can't miss a special mention of one of them called Nima. Through out our stay Nima was unobtrusively present and very thoughtfully preempting our requirements. This made our stay even more memorable.
There is not much to do in the town. And going anywhere outside is quite a journey, due to the sheer distances and large patches of bad roads. So plan to stay a good day or 2 if you want to travel around. Simply relaxing on the lawns of the resort, staring at the snow-topped Kanchenjunga peaks, sipping beer and eating chilli chicken (or chilli paneer for the vegetarians) is a fab option too. So here's a thumbs up to Norbhu Ghang.

All in all one of the best resorts in Pelling...located in Upper Pelling. We stayed here for 3 nights in the Deluxe rooms which are actually cozy cottages offering nice views of Kanchenjunga.The complimentary breakfast was sumptuous also the waiters and office staff are warm and courteous always ready to help.The Suites are located in the main hotel building while the deluxe rooms are in cottages all offering a breathtaking views of the mountain range.The resort is a mini flower nursery in itself surrounded by a couple of cheery blossom trees.A hike up the resort takes you to the helipad which offers panoramic view of Pelling,The Kanchenjunga range,Sanga Choling Monastery and the Pemayangtse Monastery.Also the upper part of resort Norbu Ghang Retreat and Spa which offer ultra luxurious rooms...A recommended place to lay back and rest in Pelling.

Amazing views, waking up to mountain views was ineffable. The rooms were fine, clean enough, basic. We travelled as a couple but we had 2 single beds pushed together. The restaurant was superb! We had one of the best meals in India, the staff provided great service.

"Norbu Ghang" which basically means "The God's Jewel" is a descent hotel with superb location.
The rooms are good and cozy. The hotel provides you great landscape views. The view of Kanchenjunga is just breath taking. The food served here is also good.

The staff and and service is great. I'd recommend this one for sure. Have a stay.
