one partridge hill home stay
<p style="text-align: justify;">In quest of serenity and tranquility, far away from the urban cacophony, I along with my spouse set forth for Mukteshwar in Uttarakhand. Mukteshwar is a pleasing hamlet situated at an elevation of about 7000 ft. above sea level in Nainital district. It offers distinctly visible 180-degree view of the majestic Himalayan range. It is believed that Lord Shiva killed a demon at this spot and he granted him salvation. Calling this a land of renunciation, Swami Vivekananda said “Everything in this life is fraught with fear; Renunciation alone is fearless.”</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">There was an undeniable delight at the sight of beckoning hill range at Haldwani from where climbing starts for the destination through anfractuous roads with fascinating bends. After nine hours of journey by car we reached our destination-One Partridge Hill. Every aspect of this property makes one feel like it is customized. One side of it is covered by forest and on the other side it offers splendid view of the enchanting valley and the Himalayas. The rooms and bathrooms are quite tasteful and luxurious. There is a lovely walking trail to explore around the property. Standing at the garden I could experience the scenic resplendence. It is uniquely environment-friendly with provision for rain water harvesting. There is a backyard compost pit to make soil conditioner for its dizzying array of flower plants and other homegrown vegetable plants.</p> <img clas

Beer is the new Scotch. The whiskey drinkers and wine connoisseurs are warming up to this cool frothy drink. Result, besides beer sales shooting up we have a whole new breed of restaurants where food takes a backseat and Beer rules.

A new one to have hopped on to this beer wagon is WareHouse Cafe in the buzzing Sector 29 market Gurgaon, which houses every kind of restaurant and pub a Dilliwala could ask for. So why you should be visiting WareHouse Cafe? Read On.
When one thinks Italian, three things come to mind — pizza, pasta and olives. But in reality there is a whole world beyond those three things in Italy dying to be explored, tasted and relished. The Westin Gurgaon’s Italian speciality restaurant ‘Prego’ attempts to do that and achieves it magnificently. Under the gaze of their fine Florentine chef Alessandro Breddo, the restaurant gives you a culinary tour of Italy on a plate. Located at the lobby level of the hotel, the Californian style Italian restaurant offers both indoor and al-fresco dining.
Tourists once favorite hangout zone in Delhi, Connought Place lost the steam few years back and sort of became dull. Now with restaurants and pub making a beeline for CP in recent years, it has become food and entertainment epicenter once again. A new gem added to this crown is Niche Lounge and Bistro, young and dynamic Tarun Arora’s brainchild. Arora with his concept restaurant goes beyond the conventional to create just what the name suggests- a niche experience.

The Amaltas Spa by L’OCCITANE located in the newly launched ANYA Hotel in Gurgaon had a tough job to impress me as I had very high expectations from it. I swear by L’OCCITANE products but whether the spa would be able to replicate that in its spa service too is what I wanted to see. Without building the suspense let me tell you- the spa exceeded my expectations. Back after a long holiday, jet lagged and tanned, my skin needed an anti-tan treatment. The spa manager Suyash Singh promptly suggested the Shea Ultra-Rich Softening Body Wrap followed by a massage of my choice. I prefer medium pressure, besides the fact that I have a thing for spa specialities, so I chose the Amaltas Signature body treatment.
What if a spa offers you a chance to be treated like a King or a Queen for a day? Read on to know about a spa treatment that does exactly that.  Tucked in a small town of Kerala, Pallakkad, Kairali Ayurvedic Healing Village offers its signature treatment- The Royal Makeover- that makes you feel like royalty. <img class="alignleft wp-image-137" src="http://thehotelexplorer.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/06/Kairali1-199x300.jpg" alt="Kairali1" width="208" height="314" />On my last holiday at Kairali Ayurvedic Healing Village I got a chance to be pampered like a star experiencing Kairali’s Royal Makeover. Here is a blow-by-blow account of it. I was welcomed in a traditional Kerala style in the treatment room with a simple prayer by the two therapists draped in traditional white sarees with golden borders. That moment itself I thought, “This is going to be magical!”. So my Royal Makeover started with <em>Padaprakshalanam</em> or the traditional foot massage. With feet soaked in water with rose petals floating it felt blissful. The therapists meanwhile concentrated on the vital points of worn-out city dwelling feet. Then came my favourite part- the <em>Siro-Abhyangam</em> or the traditional head massage with herbal oils. It’s not only relaxing but also activates the blood circulation. The full body massage here was <em>Abhyangam</em> using Kairali’s medicated oils that opens lymphatic channels and improves blood circulation. The two masseurs performed the comp
