Travelling anywhere in the world is judged on the parameters of being a success or otherwise, based on the mode of stay. If one is able to eat well and sleep well throughout the journey, the trip definitely ends on a happy note. Swissôtel Kolkata is one such property in the newly established area of Kolkata, that promises a comfortable stay with almost every aspect of amenities one can demand for.

I will call this property the perfect business traveller’s abode and a couple’s romantic escape! Business Traveller’s abode because it is situated nearby the airport and gives access to all business related protocols that a company can expect.

A couple’s romantic escape because it is situated away from the hustle bustle of the city life, offers exquisite Bengali flavours, has a club to unwind at and rooms with private pools to romance at. Right from trying out flavours of Bengali cuisine to celebrating Halloween at a Rain Dance Party, I had a gala time residing at Swissôtel Kolkata throughout my stay.

As per the current norms of constructing hotels, Swissôtel Hotel Kolkata too has a massive shopping mall attached to it. The architecture is such that the mall’s crowd and noise doesn’t interfere with the workings of the hotel at any time. The mall turned out to be a blessing for me, since I forgot to carry my memory card while travelling.
