Quan Spa – JW Marriott, Delhi Review

JW Marriott Quan Spa Review

There was a time when Delhi had a few selective spa salons. But over the years this western version of a massage has found it’s way into our metro cities as a full flourished business. Every defined region of Delhi has at least one spa standing, which is kinda convenient for the daily churners who like to avoid travelling; but how many of them actually stand by the hygiene and excellency terms that a spa requires? I have had good experience at spas and have had never-going-back kinda nightmares at some spa setups too. Although, their are a few spa abodes in the city that are not only at par with the standards of a successful spa, but are also a niche above the rest in the luxury department. One such spa of excellence and luxury is the Quan Spa at JW Marriott, Aerocity – New Delhi. I was recently invited to experience their hospitality and also try out their ‘Monsoon Special’ Spa rituals. I warded off the #MondayBlues by opting to get a spa therapy at this exquisite spa. On arrival at the grand JW Marriott Aerocity, I met Mr. Nikhil from their marketing department, who guided me on to the 2nd floor which is reserved for Quan Spa. The moment the elevator gates opened, I got a whiff of soothing lemon grass and a vague melody of relaxing music with dimmed out lights and a very unwinding environment. Boy! I was in spa heaven. Pools of rose petals welcomed me to the reception area where I was seated for my appointment.   The receptionist discussed which monsoon spa ritual will work best for me and asked me to fill out their acquaintance form which helps the masseuse understand pressure points and problem areas to be focused on. Since I …

#SayThanks To The World with Hindustan Times

August 8, 2015

It’s not how hard we work that makes us a better person, it’s how much we give back to the people in our lives that defines our goodwill. ‘Thank You’ are two magical words that can bring a smile to any person’s face or can even make one forget stress of the whole day. Hindustan Times is a known media house of the country and now they are campaigning for the promotion of a positive lifestyle and a gesture to thank their loyal readers. We strive to stay positive on a daily basis. The wish for the day is always to have a happy one, but the goal gets diluted in following up the mundane churn of life instead. It is said that your first few steps in the morning are responsible for setting up your mood for the day. For most of the people, their day begins with a cup of hot drink and the news feed from their local newspapers. Good and bad, the printed parchment volumes include news that moves us and shocks us. Agree, the life has become more complicated than ever, but it hasn’t become difficult to not put a smile on our faces. “What you give the world is what you receive.” This age old quote of living up life and treating everyone nicely is indeed true! Small gestures of goodwill put in a long lasting impact on your positive being and of those around you. One such small gesture is saying ‘Thank you’ to the people whose lives are woven with yours. A simple thank you to the people who are a part of your daily life brings in a positive change for all. #SayThanks to your Mom A mother’s love is unconditional. It’s like a special mother-child bond that lasts for the …

Barbeque Nation Worli, Mumbai – Food Review

August 3, 2015
Barbeque Nation Mumbai Food Review_4

Barbeque Nation is the place for all the tandoori fans who love there smoked succulent meat with a glass of wine or beer. This place offers an array of flavours on a single palette. The buffet only restaurant is family oriented and is an equally happening hangout place for youngsters too! As the name suggests, the restaurant offers some engaging BBQ items, right on your table. With their specially designed tables to hold up a BBQ grill right in the middle, it becomes fun to hold up your favourite skewers of chunky meat/vegetables, laced with wholesome marination and grill it just the way you like it; on the red hot charcoal pit. The BBQ also comes with some extra marination flavours like black pepper, lemon and Japanese dip. For the starters, barbeque nation serves a variety of Indian kebabs (Veg and Non-veg) and sea food. Chicken Kalmi Raan was our personal favourite along with Gulabi Mutton seekh kebab. The meat was well cooked and succulent and a bit tangy and spicy which satiated our taste buds. Fish Jhangri and Coastal BBQ prawns were quite tempting too! We also recommend vegetarians to miss the traditional Paneer Tikkas and try out their grilled vegetables and Cajun Spiced baby Potato skews. Most of the Barbeque Nation outlets in India offer cocktails and heavy alcoholic drinks. The bar serves refreshing cocktail and mocktail recipes that balance perfectly with their buffet offering. To curb our rich platter, we opted for their signature Jal Jeera Mojito, which is a must try for its digestive goodness. Post a delectable start with BBQ on the table, The Barbeque Nation offered a wide variety of the main course items, which were self-served. While some of the their signature dishes remain the same throughout the week ,there are few add-ons and menu changes …
