Delight your senses with the mystical flavors of Asia at EEST, The Westin Gurgaon

They say “relish the mystical flavors of Asia and delight your senses at EEST with distinct cuisines – Chinese, Japanese and Thai crafted to capture the essence of province of South East Asia”. I completely agree with their description of the restaurant.

Walking to the eatery carved intricately, EEST looks quite impressive and a very calm space for a quiet meal. Extremely bored and done with the loud nightlife around Sector 29 of Gurgaon, I quite liked the peaceful meal here. If one wants to spend an evening with their people talking, I think this is the place. Very light instrumental music in the background and dimly lit space, EEST has its own beauty to attract you.

The 100% vegetarian restaurant had interiors dominated by barks of the tree, stems and plants which made our dinning experience even more blissful.

Cleartrip: The Genie in the laptop

For us travel enthusiasts, it is easy to book flights but where we get stuck is the accommodation that we are choosing. This is what I personally got stuck with while I was planning my trip to Goa and what played genie in the process was Cleartrip. A click on Hotels in Goa is all I had to do and it was not just the hotel names that popped out, it was along with prices, stars, hotel area and rating…isn’t that wonderful? The infinite variety of accommodation from Guest Houses to luxurious hotels was what I wanted. With a brief description and filters, it did make my search easy and hassle free. Gone are the days when we used to call up our friendly travel agents for booking our flights and accommodation for a vacation or work trip…Now everything is a click away. Continue Reading

So, here we are on our fun filled travelogue with updates of our adventures at Corbett Blue Sky Resort in Jim Corbett. If you missed out on Day 1, you can read it here. Day 2 started with a stroll in the green lawns and our morning cup of tea. The pleasant weather and fresh air made our morning great. It felt heavenly walking on the slightly wet grass.

There were so many interesting things that I wanted to share with you so I have divided this post in 2 Parts. So here goes my travelogue for Day 1. Continue Reading

Christmas Celebrations at Le Meridien New Delhi

Feast your eyes as Le Meridien is transformed into Willy Wonka’s Chocolate factory.  Yes, a chocolate factory! Read on to know more.

As I entered, I saw a huge 25 ft. tall unique Christmas tree in the lobby. What’s special about the Christmas tree is that it is made out of 3000 discarded CD’s which have been collected from several departments of the hotel & also contributions from conscientious guests who care about the environment. Fashioned out of about 3000 CDs, this special tree is a strong symbol of the hotel’s motto of managing e-waste and also adhering to the principle of ‘Reuse, Reduce and Recycle.’ Continue Reading
