Vistara Airlines – My Travel Experience

Vistara Airlines My Experience

Gone are the days when travelling by flight meant shelling out a big chunk of your hard earned money. With plenty of airlines and a complex network of flight schedules operating nationally, aircraft as a mode of travel has come down to a more pocket friendly option in the current times. I have been travelling all my life and still find myself being all excited about boarding a train or an airplane, every single time! But one thing that has degraded over time is the food quality of the airlines. No matter how much you pay for your ticket, the food quality remains average with no scope of improvement whatsoever. Their have been times when I have picked up a slice of pizza or some sandwiches before boarding a flight, only to avoid the kind of tasteless food that they serve in-flight. Now Vistara is comparatively a newer airline group that many of my travel friends haven’t experienced yet. So when I got my ticket from Mumbai – Delhi booked on this airline, I tried asking around my friends about their experience with it. Being a foodie and a blogger, I tend to ‘review’ almost everything. Well, you’ll be happy to know that this airline actually turned out to be a great experience for me and I absolutely wish to return again for some more of their hospitality.

Now most of us are aware of the usual service of ‘regular water’ in cups in other airlines.

The Resort Mumbai

While many people consider Mumbai as an extremely busy and noisy city, the land of Bollywood has an otherwise peaceful side to it as well. Over the years, I have visited/stayed in Mumbai many times, but have never experienced a more relaxed and serene part of Mumbai till now. If you’ve been following me on Instagram, you’ll know that I recently visited Mumbai to attend an event and soak under the Mumbai’s winter sun. And while I was at it, The Resort Mumbai’s team invited me over to conclude my travel on a ‘vacation mode’.

‘Luxury in the lap of nature.’ – That’s how I’m going to define the beautiful Pushkar Resorts. This great amalgamation of providing excellent boarding facilities amidst the natural habitat of the Rajasthan region has truly been one of its kind experience for me. Not only was I mesmerized by the colourful township and vegetation of Pushkar, but I also felt absolutely pampered by the warm hospitality of the regional staff. Introducing to you Pushkar Resorts by Sewara Hospitality group. Constructed in 1998 as a mere stopover, Pushkar Resorts has ever since group over into a full fledged working resort with luxurious amenities that go unmatched for miles in that rugged region. For those who look for comfortable lodging even when they are out nature-watching, Sewara Pushkar Resorts set in one such amalgamated example. A couple of weeks back, I was invited over to their monsoon-hit property for a rural experience that promised serenity and luxury; both at the same time. And boy were they right! Right from their welcoming rose & cucumber drinks to their farewell meal, the entire 3 day experience is worth documenting. PROPERTY Designed by Indrek Roy, the property is mostly flavoured with its natural vegetation. The lodging buildings, restaurant and reception buildings have been constructed in a manner that doesn’t block the breathtaking view of the Aravallis. Spread across a land of 15 acres, it is a treat to take a stroll across the pathways, listening to the chirping of the birds and soaking in the sun and the wind of Rajasthan. Mr. Rajesh Mandal, manager, made sure that we get a detailed walk through of the entire property with additional information on the type of vegetation that can be found to the technical details of the rooms and other services. LODGING The property comprises of 40 …
