This luxury heritage hotel celebrates the elegance and grace of the Kings era in Sikkim.

Famous guests have included the Crown Prince of Sikkim, the Dalai Lama and Hollywood celebrities Shirley MacLean and Michael Douglas.
Nor-Khill translates as ‘house of jewels’, referring to the natural beauty of the surrounding flowers, fruit, mountains and valleys, which can be seen from each of the 25 deluxe rooms.
