In the sprawling 12 acres of Heritage Village is an expanse of lawn spread over an impressive 50 meters. As the sun set in the distant, on the first day of my stay there, I lazed on the lawns as my wife belted out a few yoga routines she had recently picked up. In that moment nestled amidst a refreshing cover of large trees and the orange-tinged clouds, I realised that it was possible, even if for some time, to forget my life outside. And that is how I want to remember Heritage Village Resort & Spa based in Manesar- as a place you to go to leave your office behind. Better yet, a place to leave behind the thousand worries ailing you. I went in for the weekend and came out enthusiastically revived to take on life by the horns. For the NCR resident, this place is a veritable blessing. It is a resort that will give you your space and yet manage to meet your quota for fun. What should you do there? Amble leisurely in its lush premises; take a deep breath of that nurturing air; play tennis, badminton or cricket with your spouse or kids and enjoy the food scrounged up by the in-house chef. There is little that will make you complain about the Heritage. The place is running in top form. This is partly due to a whip-smart management ( Heritage Village Resort is part of Select Hotels, same group that runs Delhi’s swanky Select City Mall) and partly due to the warm and courteous service staff. The décor inspired by the havelis of Rajasthan is breath taking and the collectiv
Luxury has a different meaning for every traveller. For some its about the grand decor, others look for impeccable service, while for few others its the attention to detail that defines an uber luxe experience. MBD Prive Collection, the recently launched 33 room-luxury offering at the Radisson Blu MBD Noida Hotel owned by MBD Group that dons the Carlson’s popular Radisson Blu brand, blends it all to offer a personalized luxury experience. We spent one night staycation at an MBD Prive Collection room and came back awed and rejuvenated. Our personal butler Siddharth was there to greet us at the lobby itself and we were quickly led to our room on the second floor.

the grill room
There is a certain childlike excitement cum anticipation brewing underneath us as the lift rises up to the 28th floor of ‘The Lalit’ taking us towards the newly revamped ‘The Grill Room’. The magnificent view of central Delhi notwithstanding, the real excitement lied in the desire to taste some sumptuous grilled cuisine that this restaurant promises. As I sat down getting ready for my dinner, I couldn’t help but wonder at the view of the outside — pretty much the best parts of New Delhi but I’ll be hard-pressed to find a quality steak house anywhere down there. Hours of watching the Anthony Bourdains and the Adam Richmonds on the television screens these days invariably brings to the fore the desire to taste quality steaks — something that is really ‘rare’ in this city and I am not talking about the way I like my steak! In a conservative society like ours, ‘beef’ is still a complete no-no but a true non-vegetarian palate is incomplete without tasting a prime cut of beef.
MoMo Café located at the Courtyard by Marriott in Gurgaon managed tickling our tastebuds with its delightful Champagne Brunch. MoMo Cafe has been consistent with its food and each time we have visited the restaurant for a meal it has never disappointed us, be it lunch or dinner. The new-look brunch launched on the first Sunday of August offers free-flowing GH Mumm champagne along with a mouth-watering. The brunch has everything for everyone- from Sushis to live grills, from pastas to biryanis. Talking about the ambience well the Momo Cafe, which hosts the Brunch, was just buzzing with life even early on a lazy Sunday morning.
If succulence of meats, infusion of flavours into them and richness of gravy are the attributes of a princely Indian meal, Singh Sahib at Eros Hotel scores as much if not more compared to its peers like Dum Pukht, Dhabha (Claridges), Jamawar (Leela Palace) and ilk. Then what has so far marred its prospects for last 18 years that it has not managed the top of the mind recall for Indian food compared to its peers? Let the hotel's marketing team find answers to this conundrum. I happened to visit the restaurant recently for a special evening of whiskey and Indian food pairing. I am so flummoxed even at myself as to how I have managed to ignore a real gem located at a hotel that is a stone's throw from my residence. I even use the property's swimming pool every evening and the restaurant Singh Sahib overlooks the pool.
