Lifestyle in Darjeeling

Tenzins Gym in Darjeling

Lifestyle in Darjeeling is markedly different from that of other district towns. May be that is because origin of the town lies embedded in the British colonial era, whose culture as well as way of life has left deep impression on its residents. Moreover, tourists, who come from different parts of the world, too have influenced the life and culture of its people.  Indeed, that is why we find surprisingly large number of lifestyle stores in such a small area. In this context, the first name that comes to our mind is the Gymkhana club.

Gym Khana Club on Mall Road

In all probability, the first gym to come up in Darjeeling was the Gymkhana Club. Established in 1909, the club is located just above the Mall Road, next to the Raj Bahwan. Today, it has more than 400 permanent members. In addition, their guests are offered temporary membership and are allowed to use all the facilities. However, in spite of its name,  the club does not really have any gymnasium right now; it is at present more famous for other activities such as roller skating, badminton, table tennis etc.


Hotel May Fair and Hotel Elgin Darjeeling

The next sets of names that come to our mind are the Hotel May Fair and Hotel Elgin Darjeeling. Both these Gymnasium at Hotel May Fairhotels not only have multi gyms located within their premises, they also have fitness rooms, beauty salons and spas offering quality services from their premises. Therefore, anyone in need of such services may visit either of them:

Beauty Parlor and Salons in Darjeeling

Beauty Salon at Hotel May FairIt is important to remember that beauty parlor is not necessarily synonymous with beauty salons. While most parlors offer superficial cosmetic treatments such as hairdressing, facial, manicures the treatment provided by beauty salons are generally more inclusive.

Along with skin health, facial aesthetic, foot care etc, they generally provide specialized services such as aromatherapy, oxygen therapy, mud baths etc. Some may also have meditation on their list.

Fortunately, there are many good beauty parlors as well as beauty salons in Darjeeling. As has been mentioned earlier, Hotel May Fair and Hotel Elgin Darjeeling have well equipped beauty salons within their premises.
