Anniversaries are such unique, special and personal affairs. An anniversary celebrates years of magical moments woven together with the threads of shared experiences, conflicts, joys and difficulties. With so many ways that you can enjoy your special day, why not choose something exciting and romantic, something that is a worthy reflection of your time together?
Welcome to Club Mahindra resorts. Where all your dreams for a perfect anniversary celebration come true!
A magical wonderland, Sikkim is your picture-perfect holiday destination if you’re looking to leave your worries, stressors and troubles of everyday life far behind.
With the snow-capped Himalayas all around you, with flower-decked meadows and a riot of colours at every corner, our resorts – Club Mahindra Baiguney, Club Mahindra Gangtok and The Royal Demazong – offer traditional Sikkimese hospitality with state-of-the-art contemporary comforts. A 5-hour drive from the airport, interspersed with sweeping green landscapes - but, wait, you can even get a helicopter ride to the resort! Now, wouldn’t that be a spectacular way to honour your wedding anniversary celebrations?
The cuisine of the region is inspired by its proximity to both, Nepal and Tibet. From steaming hot momos to thick broths to several fragrant local dishes, the soothing flavours promise to chase away the cold. Bonus tip – when in Gangtok, the one thing that you cannot miss is a yak ride. Tsongmo Lake, on the way to Nathu-La Pass, is a gorgeous lake surrounded by snow-capped peaks. As the grand mountains are reflected in the clear waters, a yak ride is a unique experience that will add a touch of fairy tale-like magic to your wedding anniversary celebration.
And if you’re up for some adventure, you can even go to Tashi Viewpoint, from where you can see the Kanchenjunga standing tall and proud. For the best views and photos, make sure you’re in time to capture the sunset or sunrise.
