The Resort Mumbai – Hotel Review

February 22, 2016

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’.

Eid Special – Leaping Caravan Food Review

September 25, 2015

This article reviews Delhi’s current Home-Delivery gourmet brand ‘Leaping Caravan’ review. Gone are the days when festive meals were all about endless hours of preparing dishes and setting the menu extensively right. Of course, our mothers still try to fit in an economical menu to makeup for the festive season, but who on earth has the time to marinate tikkas and Dum-Pukht Biryanis, eh? Sure, going out is an ideal option. Not to forget all the buffet offers that surface a week before the festive day, specializing in the traditional preparations for the celebrations. But it’s not feasible to gather all your family together and celebrate the festive season with a little privacy outside. Home Delivery has become a rage now that Indians are well-versed with the workings of the internet. Right from buying the groceries in the comfort of your homes to scrolling through endless recipes on the browser to construct a menu; everything is now available on the tips of your fingers. Well, this easy life too comes with some glitches. Even in today’s time food orders are made for current consumption only. I have hardly come across any portals that offer pre-booking of the menu and simply taking a chill-pill while the food gets delivered on your doorstep on the day as scheduled. Leaping Caravan is one such gourmet-style home food delivery service, that offers an array of authentic Indian meals and comes with all the flexibilities of ‘online-ordering’ that makes the entire procedure way easier. Leaping Caravan takes you on a delectable tour of the Grand Trunk Road. Bringing specialties from the popular regions along the route to your plate. About Leaping Caravan Whether it is the spicy Pashtuni Chapli Kebabs [rs 280] from Kabul, Lahore’s Bhati Gate Ka Mutton Seekh [rs 280] or Aloo Timater Jhol [rs200] …

Pushkar Resorts Rajasthan – Hotel Review

September 8, 2015

‘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.
