A contemporary design seeking inspiration from the uncut diamond, restaurants that serve memorable meals, comfortable rooms and happy staff all around- that pretty much sums up my thoughts about ITC’s new property in Hyderabad. Luxury and love both are in details. At ITC Kohenur it was in the ‘sleep box’ that is on the bedside, in showers fitted with Vitamin C capsules in their wellness rooms, in the personalized pillow that has guest’s names nicely embroidered on it and that extra dessert that the chef will feed you no matter which restaurant you are dining at.
<p style="text-align: justify;">A hill holiday is the favorite kind of vacation for most urban dwellers. A lavish hotel in the hills ensures that you don’t have to compromise on comfort to indulge in the crisp air of the mountains and that you have a relaxing slow-paced holiday.  My recent visit to the Royal Tulip Hotel in Kufri was just the kind of weekend I needed with my family.</p> <img class="aligncenter size-large wp-image-1083" src="http://thehotelexplorer.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/07/royal-tulip-lobby-1024x682.jpg" alt="" width="625" height="416" /> <p style="text-align: justify;">Soaking in the sights and sounds of mountain roads, after a three hour drive from Kufri Railway station, we were at our destination- Royal Tulip Kufri which is located at a height of over 8,000 feet. After a quick check-in formality at the reception and a refreshing welcome drink, we came home to our Presidential Suite. A spacious living room, master bedroom, a smaller room with twin beds and one of the most lavish bathrooms I have seen- the suite screamed luxury. Even better we could sit in the balcony stare at the mountains and star studded sky for hours. Its the breathtaking view that was even more luxurious than our room amenities. No wonder we hardly felt the need to venture out of our hotel during our weekend stay there. The decor was minimalist, just how it should be.</p> <img class="aligncenter size-large wp-image-1079" src="http://thehotelexplorer.com/wp-content/uploads/2018

Attention ladies and hubbies! Whether you’re a hardworking homemaker who wipes up a neat meal plan for your tribe or a proficient executive assembling law and order at workforce, a break with your significant other is never undesirable. Tried and tested, here’s what a couple should do to take a break – just check into Vivanta by Taj – Dwarka, and go straight to Tipple, the hotel’s very own pleasantly scented lounge bar. Don’t wait for Christmas, literally.
It is said that variety is the spice of life. Sampan — the Flavours of Asia restaurant at The Suryaa hotel — has also decided to go for a ‘makeover’, of their dishes that is! We arrived for a sampling of the new menu on offer at the Sampan and didn’t go back disappointed. A specially crafted five-course menu, for ‘The Hotel Explorer’ team, was laid out for us for the evening. Located on the top floor of The Suryaa, the restaurant offers stunning panoramic view of the city. The subtle and impressive interiors add to the charm of this Pan Asian restaurant.
Tamra
Let’s get straight to the point here, shall we? The name, Tamra, is going to get a lot of foodies like us into a confused frenzy. It’s not just a fancy name for an Indian restaurant, much like we thought it to be. For tamra—translating into copper in Sanskrit—is just one facet of this 186-seater, multi-cuisine restaurant opened this February at the Shangri-La Eros Hotel in New Delhi. Misleading as it was, we did see samosa chat on the menu though before deciding to dine there. Misleading also because it’s technically five specialty restaurants rolled into one. Much like hundreds of rolling pins (belan, if you please) strapped onto jute ropes hanging from ceiling, sharing space with rows of wheat grass planters. A blend of Indian and orient.
