Netuk House, Gangtok is more than just a palatial boutique stay. Perched on an elevated part of Tibet Road, Netuk House is an edifice of an architecturally chanting complex with a riveting account of history and tradition. Built in the late 1950’s, the house belonged to Gellong Netuk Lama, an executive counselor to the then Chogyal (Monarch). Tibet Road, as the name suggests was the principal route for travelers and traders heading up to Tibet. Most of the commuters were silk traders involved in the historic Silk Route Trade. Netuk House began offering hospitality and provided a transit point for these travelers. That marked the beginning.
Even with the inevitable changes in geography, history and politics, Netuk House still stands today as a luxury stay for those seeking the traditional hospitality with an opulent accommodation and food. The distinctive feature of Netuk House is perhaps the proximity to the market place, which serves an advantage for the tourists and guests to make a quick stroll when needed; but at the same time, it is unmarred with the hustle bustle of the commercial circuit.
In a world of rapid concrete up growth; accommodations at Netuk House finds the right fusion of tradition, modernity, and nature in the heart of a bustling town area.
The property comprises of three dwellings/ blocks, each carefully fabricated, meeting the aesthetics and modern needs of our guests.
Surpassing the conventional numbering system, the rooms at Netuk House are named after different colours, precious gemstones, and flowers. We are certain that our guests will find some semblance and aspect of the name inside each of these rooms.
