Hotel Review: Ritz Carlton Bangalore

A few weeks back, I stayed at the Ritz Carlton Bangalore, the first hotel for the brand in India. I also discovered their impeccable and intuitive service, as well as the Ladies & Gentlemen at work. Pretty impressive short stay, reviewed for you.

Hotel Review: Park Hyatt Hyderabad

I haven’t been around on the blog much, and when that happens, it means there are other things demanding a lot of my time. And amongst all that was going on, I really needed a quick break, so I decided to head to the Park Hyatt Hyderabad for a quick overnight trip last weekend, to check out the property as well as visit a city with great food. Given my schedule, I figured the best thing for me to do would be to arrive early in the morning and depart next afternoon giving me at least a full day in Hyderabad. As a Hyatt frequent guest, I really wanted to select a Hyatt property only, and I had heard lots…

Review: JW Marriott Mussoorie Walnut Grove Resort & Spa

Like many regular readers would know, I chose to spend the last weekend at the almost new JW Marriott Mussoorie Walnut Grove Resort & Spa. The resort opened in October 2014, and was on my wish list for a while. I had a couple of category 4 room nights expiring from last year’s Marriott Rewards Free Nights promotion which I earned from my Courtyard by Marriott Kochi stay, so I thought without the time to pop out of the country, this would be one of the best places to go with these room night certificates. I flew with Jet Airways to Delhi and then onwards to Dehradun Airport, and had a car I organised on my own to drive me…

JW Marriott Mussoorie Walnut Grove: I am floored!

Hello folks, and happy Hallmark day to all of you. I have to admit, I am a sucker for high end resorts, but ever since Hilton left me high and dry in Shillim a year and a half ago, I was not giving them much leeway to disappoint me again. A few months ago, JW Marriott opened a resort in Mussoorie, a hill station I am sure everyone who is in India and loves to travel has been to at some time or the other in their lives. Except, this one is the first 5 Star property in this part of the world. I arrived here yesterday for a short stay. After all, I have places to go and not…

Hotel Review: Sheraton Kuwait, A Luxury Collection Hotel

My go to hotel, while I am in Kuwait, is the Sheraton Kuwait Hotel. The Sheraton Kuwait, is a Starwood hotel, a Luxury Collection property which is somehow a splatter of almost all the Starwood brands out there. I’ll come to that in a moment. However, it is a hotel which has been very nice to me over my 5-6 stays with them over the years, in spite of the fact that I am only a SPG Gold member. My stays with them are usually a one night stay, and hotel prices in Kuwait are regulated, so I have never seen this hotel offering a price less than 85 Kuwaiti Dinar. However, for the price you pay, you also get…

Hotel Review: Hyatt Regency Kolkata

A long weekend is an excuse to get out of town, and October 2-6 this year was one of those with a lot of holidays. With a lot of Bengali friends, I’ve heard great things about Kolkata during the Durga Puja season, and it was one of the things on my to do list. So, this year, it was a good time to make it happen. When I started to look for hotels, I eventually narrowed it down to the ITC Sonar or the Hyatt Regency, which are two hotels I’ve been wanting to go to for a while. Luckily for me, I spotted a very good deal at the Hyatt Regency Kolkata during the Monsoon Flash sale they held…
