Hotel Fortuna Lachung North Sikkim Review

Monday, October 28, 2013


I got to stay in Fortuna Lachung as part of a package I bought from Tibet Tours & Travels of Mr. Prabir Sen. Complete story is in this post: North Sikkim Tour Part-1. Because the price of a one night stay and food in this hotel was covered in the Rs. 17900/- I paid for the whole 2N/3D North Sikkim package, I never knew how much this stay cost me. My guess is that room tariff here would range between Rs. 2000-4000 per night depending on the season. In general the hotel was better equipped than their counterpart in Lachen - (Hotel Lachen View Point Review). The room was bigger and better furnished with two queen beds, a cabinet, a dressing table, a coffee table & two chairs, and a small TV that showed some local channels one of which was showing a Hindi movie. The bathroom was particularly better in terms of fittings and cleanliness. Carpet on the floor was a little worn though (See pictures below). I was served excellent tea on arrival and promised another tea with snacks later when their chef returned from his break. I got the tea and snacks later when I returned from my trip to a nearby coffee shop (Read the story here). Fortuna has a large dining room on the second floor with glass windows allowing a nice outside view. Food was served buffet style. Dinner on the evening of arrival was oily and heavy which some of my fellow guests seemed to enjoy. Lunch next day was lighter and better for my taste because it contained less oil in everything. Location-wise, Fortuna is a little away from Lachung village on the road going towards Yumthang Valley and Zero Point. There are some nice coffee shop cum bars nearby. Lachung's finest hotel - Yarlam is a little ahead on the same road. Overall, Fortuna Lachung offers basic comforts and should be adequate for a couple of nights' stay. For the travellers looking for luxury, I will suggest Hotel Yarlam. Hotel Fortuna Lachung Booking Page (See Fortuna pictures below)
