Celebrating 4 years of my blog.

It’s tough to be consistent but sharing my Travel & Food experiences have always been my passion. Thanks Evolve India for surprising me with this beautiful delicious cake from Sangeetas Cooking Mantra. The cake looks stunning and Dark Chocolate Cake is my fav ♥️ #ExploreWithTripti

Some insight for fellow instagrammers & PRs:
A blog is a type of website where the content is often referred to as blog posts mainly with the purpose of sharing information or experiences. Therefore, posting pictures on instagram is not called blogging. Please do not call instagrammers as bloggers 🙏

Detox at Naad Wellness Center near Delhi NCR​ | Ayurveda, Yoga, Therapies and Naturopathy

Featured

Naad Wellness is a holistic wellbeing center located in Sonipat, proximity to Delhi NCR. Naad Wellness features experiential (Detox, Destress, etc) and medical packages (Diabetes Management, PCOS management, Spine Care, Sports Injury Management, etc). Naad Wellness is rooted in the ancient principles of Ayurveda, Yoga & Naturopathy, they provide therapies and services restore balance to five senses and help tune into a sound you.

I thoroughly enjoyed my 4 days stay at this beautiful yet relaxing property. I also tried Aerial Yoga for the first time at Naad Wellness. It increases full-body flexibility and strength. The hammock itself allows you to go deeper into the stretches and poses, further enhancing full-body flexibility #AerialYoga. This might look easy but was very difficult and would not have been possible without the experts at Naad.

We did yoga, meditation and various therapies like Abhyanga (the most popular massage in Ayurveda done with warm oil), Shiroabhyanga (complete massage of the head, neck, and shoulders using Ayurvedic herbal oils. It promotes better sleep, body gets strengthened, improves concentration), Swedish massage (It involves soft, long, kneading strokes, as well as light, rhythmic, tapping strokes, on topmost layers of muscles. This is also combined with movement of the joints. By relieving muscle tension, Swedish therapy can be both relaxing and energizing), tried the Himalayan Salt Cave (inhale the dry salt-enriched air deep down into their lungs which clean the lungs, promote better breathing, healthier skin, good sleep, improve physical fitness and overall wellness), Padabhyanga (foot care is holistic and involves massaging the pressure points with herbal and medicinal oils) and much more. They have Reflexology Track (walking paths made of rocks turned on edge and closely packed together. It lowers blood pressure, stimulates reflex points, relieves stress, boosts energy)

Naad has kitchen garden with the ‘Farm to Fork’ concept and Chef Sahajan prepares most of the meals from fresh veggies and herbs plucked from their garden. Also had a cooking class with Chef and made Moong Daal Chilla. They focus on having colourful healthy food on your plate for a healthy balanced diet.

The outdoor pool was closed adhering to Covid-19 precautionary measures. Apart from these services, they have Salt Cave and Turkish Hammam. Continuous sanitization and safety measures were taken.

A must visit for everyone to take a break from our busy life. I highly recommend everyone to stay here especially senior citizens. Also watch Wellness Center Tour and my #Staycation video on Instagram @love_yourself_love_life

Mom’s Birthday at Ramada Central Gurgaon

Featured

Stayed at Ramada Central, Gurgaon for my Mom’s Birthday celebration. 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.

We stayed in their Club Room and enjoyed our #Staycation thoroughly. This cozy room had a work area and a sitting area. It is well-equipped with amenities like LCD TV, high-speed Wi-Fi, air conditioning and 24-hour room service. The hotel staff is courteous and room service is flawless. 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.

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.

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.
