Being a detached building it has excellent light and ventilation whilst its elevated position means most rooms have superb views of the town and tea gardens below and the stunning mountain range above.

The attention to detail pervades every aspect of Shangri-la Regency, from the courteous but unobtrusive staff to the quality of the furnishings and fixtures and the authenticity of the cuisine, giving an aura of luxury in a hotel that is small enough to be intimate and homely.

The hotel has five floors altogether, and whilst (as with all other hotels in Darjeeling) there isnt a lift, the design of the building reduces the effort needed to climb the stairs! The stairways are bright and airy with short flights regularly interspersed with landings. Guests who might find the climb up to the attic rooms a bit of a challenge could stay in the first floor rooms which are just a few steps up from the reception. Our staff are always on hand to provide assistance; please ask at the reception.
