Ramada by Wyndham Hotel & Golden Casino opens in Gangtok

Published on:

Golden Play Private Limited, an online gaming and casino company based out of Delhi, has announced the opening of its Ramada by Wyndham Hotel & Golden Casino in Gangtok, Sikkim.

Gangtok is a popular hill station in the Himalayas, close to Darjeeling, and is the capital and largest town of the Indian state of Sikkim. The region enjoys a year-round mild temperate climate. Sikkim is one of the three northeast states to have legalised casinos. Meghalaya is the recent state to join the list.

Recently, the government of Sikkim warned the public servants from playing online skill and casual games during office hours. Sikkim permits online gambling through intranet (terminals) which cannot traverse outside the State of Sikkim. “Gangtok is an important leisure destination in East India, and we are excited to open our second hotel in the region after Darjeeling under our popular Ramada by Wyndham brand. This year, we expect to open a brand new Ramada Encore by Wyndham in Siliguri, which will act as a base hotel for Gangtok and Darjeeling and further strengthen our presence and offering in the region and help to continue our growth momentum across East India,” said Nikhil Sharma, Regional Director Eurasia, Wyndham Hotels & Resorts EMEA.
