5 Star Hotels in Gangtok

    On the occasion of our 5th wedding anniversary, I am planning to take my better half to a tour of Sikkim. We plan to cover the tourist attractions in Gangtok, Namchi, Pelling, Ravangla and Yuksom on this trip.

    As per the information that I managed to gather, Gangtok seems to be the ideal base as all the places are within a radius of 120 KM from Gangtok. Also, being the state capital, Gangtok has a decent count of star hotels and resorts. So we are planning to book our accommodation in Gangtok itself.

    As the trip is for celebrating a special occasion, we are keen on staying in a 5 star hotel in Gangtok. Although we have finalized the location of our base, we are not able to zero in upon any particular hotel. The problem is that we have never been to Sikkim before and have no idea which are the best 5 star hotels out there.

    So dear forum members, could you please help us in choosing the best 5 star hotel in Gangtok? If possible, kindly include the tariff details also.
