I was planning to travel to Mumbai and while deciding where to stay Holiday Inn came up in the options. I had already stayed at Holiday Inn at Phuket and had loved my experience so without a doubt I finalized it. Stepping in at Holiday Inn Mumbai International Airport brought back the lovely memories of my time at Holiday Inn Phuket!
five star hotel
For the love of Chinese food, Team ChicLifeByte reserved their table at Jade at The Claridges New Delhi to try out the delicious Chinese-Cantonese cuisine. Amongst snug and intimate interiors, wide windows giving a view of small exquisite oriental gardens, Team ChicLifeByte was seated for their grand lunch. The peaceful, calm & serene music in the background was so satisfying just like the presentation, taste and ingredients in the food freshly made bringing together the taste of the new additions in the menu.
I had to be in Lucknow known as the city of Nawabs and while I was choosing where to stay I decided Novotel Lucknow. Located at Gomti Nagar, which is a 30 minute drive from the Airport as well as the Railway station, it boasts of being one of the best 5-star hotels in Lucknow that too when the hotel has just turned one. Yes, the hotel which started its operation on May 1, 2017 has an occupancy of 106 rooms which are mostly sold out on any given day. With 92 superior rooms, 12 executive rooms and 2 suites, the hotel is well-equipped to understand the growing needs of its consumers.
The much-awaited meal for the winter month is now on ChicLifeByte’s palette which brings together Kashmir’s alluring flavours and takes you on a culinary voyage. The delightful Kashmiri spices are brought from the heaven of beauty, the “Flavours of Kashmir” festival being held at Caraway, the Indian speciality restaurant at The Grand New Delhi organized in association with Saal by Sunil Tickoo keeping in mind the two distinctive cooking styles of the valley- Kashmiri Pundit style and Kashmiri Wazwan cuisine. While Kashmiri Muslim cuisine is partial to onions, garlic & tomatoes, the authentic Pundit cuisine is absolutely devoid of them, be it non-vegetarian or vegetarian cuisines with elements of richness and balancing of flavours. Signature dishes include Gosthaba, Tabak Maza, Rista, Nadur Yakhni, Shufta and many more. Not to forget the authentic Rogan Josh!
