Staycation at WelcomHotel, ITC

Featured

Had an incredible luxury Staycation experience at WelcomHotel, Dwarka by ITC hotels in New Delhi. I stayed in their Studio Suite. The suite was huge and with a wider outside view. The suite I stayed was at 8th Floor and had a pool view. Suite is equipped with a spacious living area, workstation, bedroom and there is ample room to relax.

They welcomed me in the suite with Mulled Wine, Roses and Dessert Platter which was created in a personalized way. The experience was best of luxury and service standards are highly commendable. The bed was super comfortable and washroom was very big with rain shower. Products in the washroom were of premium quality.

 

The hotel has the highest level of hospitality. Had an extravagant Christmas brunch at Pavilion 75 which serves the best of Indian and Oriental cuisines. They had everything on the counter from Roasted Duck to Spinach & Pomegranate shots to Red Snapper. Also highly recommend the desi Makke ki Roti & Sarso ka Saag.

After stuffing myself so much, it was time to relax in my luxurious suite. Watched some series on their Flat-screen TV and munched on seasonal fruits which they serve daily in the suite. Thereafter, headed to WelcomWelness for an amazing Spa session called WelcomSignature Spa and concluded with a steamy shower. The Spa experience was amazing and it is a must to de-stress yourself.

For evening snack, I ordered their Lamb Burger and Chicken Tikka Pizza. Both were super delicious. Pizza was loaded well with chicken chunks and cheese.

Dinner was at Kebabs & Kurries, it is ITC Hotel’s award winning signature fine cuisine North Frontier Indian Specialty Restaurant. The restaurant is lit with 1100 candles and has live ghazal which makes the dinner experience very memorable. Service was top notch by Aman and Chef Jitender prepared some special dishes one of them being Paneer stuffed with veggies. This dish was lip-smacking and I highly recommend it. Also had other signature dishes like the popular Dal Bukhara. Non-vegetarian platter and Gosht Biryani was also scrumptious. I tried the dessert sampler which had Kulfi, Shahi Tukda and Gulab Jamun. Shahi Tukda being the best ever I have tasted till date.

They also have another restaurant called the Shanghai Club. As the name suggests, it specializes in Chinese cuisine and serves delightful dimsums and spring rolls.

Next morning, visited their huge gyming area which comprises of many equipments. After a sweaty session, ordered a variety of different dishes for breakfast in the suite, from lavish English Breakfast to Masala Dosa to Chocolate stuffed Croissants, they had everything on the menu. Highly recommend their Chicken and Cheese Sandwich which was grilled to perfection.

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at WelcomHotel, Dwarka and their hospitality is praiseworthy. A must hotel in case you plan for a luxury stay.

Aksari Resort, Bali

Aksari Resort, Ubud

Recently stayed in Aksari Resort located in Ubud, Bali on my trip to Indonesia last month in September.

The Resort is located in Ubud’s Kenderan Village which is only 25 minutes from central Ubud and surrounded by green valley Tegalalang rice terrace/fields.

I have heard that this resort is ideally for honeymooners but still thought to give it a try. The stay is an experience in itself and captures breathtaking views of the forest and rice field from resort. They have several villas on offer like Suite Pool View, One Bedroom Private Pool Villa, Suite Forest View, etc. Also they have other facilities including restaurant, bar lounge, wedding venue, spa, yoga, gym and public swimming pool.

3

I chose to live in the Royal One Bedroom Villa with Private Infinity Pool which could easily accommodate up to 3 adults or 2 adults and 1 child. This Royal One Bedroom Villa and an amazing Private Infinity Pool, large bedroom, daybed, ensuite bathroom with bathtub, rain shower, reading sofa, private gazebo, sun lounge, water sun longer, minibar and a working desk.

Upon entering the villa there was flower and towel decoration done on the bed. I also took advantage of their awesome services like Floating Breakfast which is food presented in a large, sturdy tray which floats on water and you can enjoy the same in their infinity pool. Also I ordered water floats and received huge pink duck (at an additional cost).

2

They have an all-day dining restaurant called Ankhusa. Their menu, which has an array of international food is designed to give optimal nutrition for the guest aimed to nurturing the body with an array of local cuisine signature like the roasted duck, chicken satay and fried rice. I tried chicken with cashew nuts and chicken & mushroom fettuccine creamy pasta. Their food is absolutely delicious and left me wanting for more.

If you love nature and luxury, I highly recommend you to stay at this resort.

NokScoot Airline is a Thailand-based low-cost airline. It operates international services out of Bangkok’s Don Mueang International Airport. NokScoot’s aircraft are operated in a two-class configuration, ScootBiz and Economy.

I experienced both their business and economy class and I must say both were very comfortable flights. You may also choose economy class with extra legroom seats.

Also they have a vast menu to choose from for your meals and the food served is hot and delicious. Passengers have to pay for meals in economy, either pre-paid or buy-on board.

All ScootBiz seats have in-seat power, while the airfare includes complimentary meals and a checked luggage allowance of 30 kilograms. Staff is friendly and the flight was on time. Looking forward to flying with them again.

It was attended by many Thai and foreign visitors. Admission to Thailand Tourism Festival 2019 is free. If you are coming by MTR, then MRT Lumphini Station is the closest.

There will be processions/parade, musical performances, delightful cuisine from all over Thailand to try. The festival starts from 12:00 – 22:00hrs, five tourism villages will display the unique and different ways of life of Thai people across the region and there will be booths where visitors can find information about Chiang Mai, Sukhothai, Surat Thani, Samut Prakan, Pathum Thani, Chachoengsao, and Udon Thani.

Recently stayed at Hyatt Place located in Udyog Vihar, Gurgaon. This fabulous business hotel is located centrally.

We had our meals in Gallery Café which serves buffet as well as tried few dishes from their newly launched à la carte menu. The best thing is they serve fresh fruit juices, loved orange and watermelon juice.

Even though the restaurant is located in a five-star hotel, menu prices are very reasonable and light on the pocket. Also would recommend Lamb Curry from the Indian buffet section, Chicken-Bacon Ceasar Salad, Grilled Fish and Shikanji from a la carte menu. They have an extensive buffet breakfast, loads of choices from Dosa to Sausages.

Their lunch and dinner buffet is no less and is sumptuous. Also not to forget the wide range of desserts and cakes. These are a must try. They have dining space outside in the garden as well.

Lifestyle Awareness Day 2018

Featured

Lifestyle can be briefly described as the way we chose to live our life. It is just not about living, it is about how we live. It is just not about eating fruits and vegetables, but also about ensuring that what we chose to eat, adds value to our health and life. It is all about living a life that is healthy, active and happy. It is about spending quality time with our family, friends and loved ones that adds to the overall well-being.

images

Every year in the month of February, Lifestyle Awareness Day is observed as an awareness initiative to educate and create awareness on the importance of living a healthy lifestyle. Through this day it is communicated to the people on the elements of good nutrition, physical activity, tobacco control, awareness against alcohol and drug abuse and the importance of safe sexual behaviour. Through this day the people get the opportunity of know and tackle lifestyle diseases like obesity, hypertension, depression, inactivity and unhealthy diets.

Living a healthy lifestyle is not at all difficult as we might think of. Just like anything else, it starts with a simple step. Whether it is quitting the habit of smoking or alcohol, or choosing to eat healthy and engaging in some sort of physical activity.

Noted below are some lifestyle changes that is recommended on this lifestyle awareness day for all for a better and healthier tomorrow:

  • Choose to reduce your salt intake: High salt intakes are responsible for issues related to blood pressure and in the long run towards heart diseases and strokes. Reduce the use of salt to minimum along with processed and fast foods.
  • Increase calcium intake: It is a vital mineral for bone and tooth health. It is also important for other body functions like the contractions of muscles.
  • Adopt to eating a balanced diet: Diet with the right ratio of essential elements like minerals, fats, proteins and carbohydrates are necessary for the proper functioning of all organs in the body and its development.
  • Quit smoking and reduce alcohol intake: Both these elements are of no good to us. Smoking damages our lungs and alcohol our kidneys and other vital organs of the body. The benefits are none, whereas, the damages are countless.
  • Exercise regularly and stay hydrated: Drink atleast 8 to 10 glasses of water throughout the day to keep hydrated. Water is the best medicine that we could have to stay healthy and cleansed. Exercising regularly keeps us fit and active and keeps our muscles toned and relaxed.

The world changes even before we could realize the benefits of a healthy lifestyle. Take the first step forward and start living a happy and healthier life.

Enchanting Dubai


Our stay in Dubai was simply amazing.

Visit to the beautiful Miracle Flower Garden is absolutely amazing. From the entry gate to the emirates airplane, everything is decorated with flowers. Even though you are not a fan of flowers, you will love this place. It’s a must visit when you are in Dubai.

The Global Village is very close to the Miracle Garden but requires full day to cover up the place. It has stalls of almost every country showcasing their specialty when it comes to food and culture.

The amazing Dubai Mall is so vast that it would take atleast a full week to cover up all the stores in the Mall. It consists of all the major brands, offers water fountain show in the evening, entry to the very popular Burj Khalifa.

Disabled and Handicapped Children in Delhi

Believe in Giving and Social Work | Disabled and Handicapped Children in Delhi | Sharing is Caring

Celebrations are incomplete if we live only for ourselves. Let’s be thankful to the Lord for whatever we have because sometimes we do not realise that many people don’t even have the basics and are unable to live on their own and have to rely on someone else even to feed themselves. Saw some disabled and underprivileged orphan children who are facing life in the toughest way! Let’s light up someone else’s life and believe in giving a part of the blessings we receive! Sharing is Caring! ♥️

YouTube Thumbnail

For some people this might sound like a lecture but until we share a part of our blessings with others who are suffering and bring happiness to their lives even by small acts our lives will remain incomplete. So let’s aim in doing good deeds and thank God for all the blessing we have received. Also let us Pray for the World 🙏 since many countries are facing social calamities, virus outbreak, etc. ♥️
