This time I had taken a weekend off from my work and made plans of visiting Bangalore. Well, I didn’t wanted to explore the city, my plan was just to check into one of the luxurious and exotic resorts of Bangalore and cool my heels and enjoy the royal touches!

I have heard a lot about the resorts in Bangalore but I was not sure on what to choose as there was a wide array of choices.

Finally I narrowed down and shortlisted the top 5 luxury resorts in Bangalore for my stay, after a lot of comparing done on the services provided by each one of them. They were: The Shreyas Retreat, Discovery Village, Ankit Vista Green Village, Goldfinch Retreat and Olde Bangalore Resort. To be frank, I liked all the 5 resorts, and was in a total confusion on which to choose. I started with the Shreyas Retreat and then proceeded to the next in my list.

The Shreyas Retreat offered

  • Pool side cottages and tented garden cottages in the lush green atmosphere
  • Pleasant, disciplined and calm stay away from the hush of city life
  • Sophisticated spa treatments, and provision for yoga and meditation
  • Organic farm giving a unique experience to the visitors.

The Discovery Village also made a great pull,

  • Offers perfect cottages, ideal for romantic honeymoon couples
  • Close to tourist spots like Muneshwara swamy temple, Bangalore palace, Bolare Dam, and many more interesting places.
  • Vegetarian and non vegetarian delicacies provided at the multi cuisine in house restaurant.

Finally when it came to Ankit Vista Green Village, I put a sudden break and booked the room here as its beauty really tugged at my heart strings!

The minute I stepped into this haven of peace and tranquillity, I could feel the tension and strain ebb away from my body as it was an oasis amidst tall trees and long stretches of greenery. The multi cuisine restaurant named Thripthi Greens which serves Chinese to Continental and the outdoor swimming pool side restaurant Spoorthy really were our hub and the whole family enjoyed very well amidst the hearty hospitality. I bid the resort goodbye with a vow in my heart to visit it again for my next holiday!


Best Time To Visit Bangalore: The Good Old Winter Vacations!

Being a voracious reader I came to know that Bangalore is one of the best places to visit in India. Among the many cities listed Bangalore stood out opined many. This garden city is an ideal mélange of culture, nature and modernity and I also had a friend whom I could see after a long time. My wish to visit this Garden city became strong! I therefore browsed the net to find the best time to visit Bangalore. It said winter is the best time as the parks and lakes here make it a perfect place at this time of the year. And I had a choice of visiting the city during the months of November to February and March to August.

Spend Awesome Time in Bangalore!

My friend made the bookings at the famous Royal Orchid Resort and also booked the train tickets. From the review of the hotel I knew this strategically situated 5-star edifice is in the vicinity of the well known Hebbal Lake, Lal Bagh,, Banarghatta National Park, etc. We planned to visit them all and my friend’s kids too accompanied us since it was their winter vacation and it was fun to explore the attractions and also window-shop in the gigantic shopping Malls.

On the way back to the hotel I noticed many eateries, dhabas and restaurants. The kids wanted to gorge on some yummy fast food but me and my friend decided to taste the dishes like sarson ka saag and makke di roti, chole bhature, etc. On reaching our accommodation we found out it housed one of the best restaurants “Verve” and so the next day we planned to enjoy the complimentary buffet breakfast there! As per plan we toured Bangalore and carried back good memories about the food, city and the season!
