We were a group of two couples myself and my brother's family and stayed in Club Mahindra in Mar-14. I would say the property is well maintained and having some really awesome views. But certain things were not as we expected them to be. Before arriving we were told that the room is big enough to accomodate 2 couples - so we booked only one room. However, we found out that the room are spacious enough for 1 couple (including kids) but not more than that.

We've been to other properties of Club Mahindra like Mashobra etc. where one room is really big enough to accomodate two couples. It has an extra bedroom.

Food is really great and the kind of indoor recreational activities that is planned by the staff during evening is quite nice.

Location wise property really offers some very nice views. But the pitfall is that its away from the centre and one needs to depend on the Taxi even when you want to step out to visit the local market. The charge for Taxi also seemed little too much just for visiting the MG Road i.e. 500 Rs - for hardly going a distance of 15 - 20 mins.

Overall we enjoyed the stay of 5 nights here as we were a group of two couples.

My friend and I spent a weekend here in July, and overall, it was a fine experience. The property is located a bit outside the main city, but naturally. That's what adds to the charm here, although Gangtok by itself is a largely peaceful and serene place. It's an utterly beautiful hotel, with its impressive facade and reception interiors done up in colourful Oriental architectural style. We took a room up on the third floor, and the view outside was stunning, especially in the cloudy weather we encountered. The room was spacious and comfortable, all the basic amenities in place, with a small picturesque balcony as well. Club Mahindra services were above par, from room service and travel service to entertainment nights in the recreation centre/ dining hall and warm behaviour of the staff.

We did face a few issues, though nothing insurmountable. The climb up to the top floors can be tiring, but it's quite worth it. The rooms (at least our room) didn't have an ac/fan and there was no need for it during our visit, but not sure if it gets warmer in peak summer, in which case a non-ac facility might be uncomfortable. Due to the monsoons, we also faced a lot of bugs in the night... we kept the balcony and windows shut, so not in the room itself, but the critters would somehow invade the bathroom while we slept. The toughest part was that telephone reception at the property, especially at the higher floors, was quite weak and fluctuating, so forget gprs already... unfortunately, the wifi at the hotel was also dysfunctional during our entire stay, which proved to be highly problematic for us since we had to arrange for some urgent documentation over the net on our first day there. Also, we found the cab rates offered here for the Nathula/Tsongmor trip quite high as compared to rates offered by the local agents.

That apart, we had a lovely time at Royal Demazong. The food is decent, nothing extraordinary, but the buffet spreads are excellent and not to be missed. Quite happy with the experience, and would recommend the place to others.

We stayed here during July,and it is one of the very nice, peaceful resort in midst of mountains.

Service staff is very courteous , food was good and rooms were impeccably clean. We even learnt how to make Momos. I would have loved , if food had more local variety.

Fun zone was also exciting, and for the first time in Club mahindra resorts, i found Souvenior shop to be good.

However, the only negative point , is that it is too far from the main city , and you need to depend on hiring private taxi every time. It would have been great , if they would have some shuttle service to drop you in town.

Overall, great staff, great experience and a peaceful visit

We stayed here during the lashing monsoons in July 2014. Gangtok is a beauty by itself, and the resort location is marvellous. The rooms are cosy, the staff courteous and friendly and there's nothing left to be desired during your stay here. A true holiday in the hills and enjoyable even if you are left in the resort without any sight seeing plans. We visited east Sikkim through the well organised travel desk arrangements, enjoyed local cuisine incl local drinks through the ever-helpful restaurant staff, availed the holiday activities for our daughter from the Fun Zone at resort and had a truly memorable stay here. Make sure you spell out what you want such as an expert driver to take you around, local cuisine like momos, Thukpa, etc.. And the staff will go out of their way to serve you. The people of Sikkim seem very simple and nice at heart, and touring around locally is a no-brainer. The MG market is worth visiting with all kinds of shops and every bank's ATM to fund your shopping. Very well planned market area, reminded of Chinatown markets abroad.

Top marks to Club Mahindra resort and its staff for making our trip worth it!

Room Tip: Ask for rooms higher up as you can see the beautiful valley spread before you.

We were Exhausted of Delhi Heat,so me and my Husband decided to visit mountains,along with my 9 year old Daughter.North East was in our wish list from long,so decided to visit it this year in June,inspite of being Rainy season there. We landed at Bagdogra and then 4 hours we were in Gangtok. We stayed in club Mahindra Resort Gangtok for 3 Nights. Beautiful,peaceful as its 8km away from the city.The resort had breathtaking views of the Himalayas from the room. It was quite,private,away from the hush and rush of the city.Which is what we were looking for. Staff was very well educated,humble,polite.
The fun zone was also very nice, where my daughter spend time and me and my husband use to go to play pool in the evening. They played a very interesting documentary Mount Everest. Which was very educational.The food spread was also very nice. Once evening we also learnt how to make Momos ,which was fun and in the evening had what we tried to make.
The travel Desk people were also very nice and helpful. They organized a day trip for us,where we could choose our own itinerary and we also visited Nathula Pass & Rumtek Monestray which is a must visit if you go to Gangtok. The best time to visit Sikkim is Oct- March.

Overall pleasant and Peaceful Vacation.

Though it is a little far way from Gangtok city , this resort is perched on a mountain, up in the clouds, with a very steep climb giving it unrestricted breathtaking views of majestic Himalayas, bang across. Just a little walk down from this resort and you are in picturesque spot with a meandering river descending between two mountains an "unparalleled pristine natural beauty spot".the kind of stuff you see in picture calenders. The resort's reception is made in bright traditional style and has a eastern charm to it . Though not a luxury resort, but the rooms and facilities are well kept,very spacious & quite clean. The service and the staff through-out is very courteous and always with a smile on face. The Food at the resort restaurant is found wanting in taste compared to the stuff you get in good restaurants in city.You won't find local Sikkimese options in the menu and what you get is also not very authentic.Since there are hardly any other dining options nearby so the resort's restaurant is the only option, redeeming feature is that it has some daily entertainment shows at dinner time. The resort offers safe and extremely well mannered drivers for local travel and sight seeing options at very reasonable rates .

Room Tip: Take the rooms on the top floors to have unrestricted Panaromic views .
