This hotel is minutes away from National Highway 8, route to Jaipur as well as MGF Metropolitan Mall, Kingdom of Dreams, Leisure Valley, and Galaxy Mall with proximity to Cyber Park, DLF Phase 1 and corporate hubs like Udyog Vihar and DLF Cyber City.

They have a vast food menu which offers everything from Continental, Chinese, Italian to Indian including varieties of kebabs. Their restaurant is known as Café Rouge. Though food can also be serve in Bar and Lounge as well. Thanks to the Restaurant Manager, Mr. Vishal Katoch who took care of our culinary needs. Their Tandoori Jheenga (Prawns), Lucknowi Mutton Curry and Spicy Chicken Tikka Pizza cannot be missed!! They have also scrumptious sizzlers fest going on currently. Food is of top quality and will surely satisfy your taste buds.

They have gymnasium, outdoor pool and wellness spa. Spa and pool were closed adhering to Covid-19 precautionary measures. Continuous sanitization and safety measures were taken. They also have conference rooms and banquet halls with a lot of space.

Even though it is a four-star hotel, room rates are very realistic and light on the pocket. I would recommend to book through their website directly as they have good discounts available on their portal.

Special thanks to Mr. Sumit Ghosh who took care of everything throughout our stay leaving us with a memorable experience. Also the complementary cake for my Mom’s Birthday was absolutely delicious 🙂

Maca Villas & Spa, Bali

Featured

One of the most luxurious private villas that I have stayed in Bali is Maca Villas and Spa in Seminyak. Villa is approximately 25 minutes away from Bali Internation Airport, also known as Ngurah Rai International Airport. It consisted of a spacious living and dining area with a restful master bedroom and luxurious en-suite bathroom, a private pool, outdoor sun bed. The living room opens onto a spacious timber sundeck and pool can also be accessed through the bedroom. The villa is equipped with latest gadgets including the Bose Sound Dock Digital Music System.

IMG_E6534

They have their own restaurant called Mase Kitchen and bar which serves delectable food and spirits. The resort also features a communal swimming pool. Best thing for tourists is that they provide a free shuttle service based on their schedule in the Seminyak area.

IMG_E6537

The stay was an experience in itself. They also have Soham Wellness Center which consists of spa, gym, yoga, healthy café, boutique and public swimming pool.

I stayed in both their properties in Seminyak i.e. Maca Villas and Spa & Maca Villas Umalas. 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 your private pool. Also I ordered water floats which come at an additional cost.

The staff is very courteous and efficient. Room service was spot on! If you love luxury, I highly recommend you to stay at this resort.

Must place to try Best Sushi in Delhi

I have been at Honk, Pullman Hotel, New Delhi few times now. They have recently launched their Yum Cha Daily Lunches wherein you can feast over 22 different kinds of steamed, pan-fried and baked dimsums along with soups, salads and a meal in a bowl. Chicken & Chive pan-fried dimsum and Eggplant Puff with sweet chili and garlic are highly recommended. Apart this delish feast, they also serve premium Asian teas and beverages like shochu, sake and umeshu. The best way to conclude the meal is with their special homemade gelatos.

1

Also been to Honk for dinner and everything was absolutely delicious. Started with Larb Gai salad which was bursting with flavours. Also Tuna Pizza was tasty.

Tried their dimsums and sushi as well. Red Dragon Sushi, Fire ball Sushi and Kaibashira Sushi were yum. Also tried Lobster dumplings with black truffle caviar dumpling, Black pepper chicken dumpling and the best one was Laksa Crab and Prawn dumpling – MUST TRY!! Honk is, no doubt, the best place I have had the best sushi in New Delhi.

For mail course had ‘Honk’s own’ spicy Prawns, Lamb black pepper, Garlic and Chives Fried rice and Vegetable Hakka Noodles.

All the desserts we tried were made to perfection:

Wasabi Cheesecake – This was so unusual yet awesome.

Fried cinnamon banana with white sesame jaggery fudge – Simply loved this one.

Trio ice-cream (Coconut & Kaffir Lime, Honey, Avocado) – Avocado ice-cream was the best!!

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.
