Lavish Buffets, Infinity Pools And The City Skyline: This New Star Hotel Is Perfect For A Staycation


    There’s a new Marriott hotel in town and it’s got all the things we’ve grown to love the iconic star hotel chain for, plus a few cool extras. Say hello to Courtyard By Marriott Bengaluru Hebbal.

    New Kid In Town

    When we heard that there was a new Marriott hotel in the city, we didn’t waste a minute and went over to check it out. Located in Hebbal, the new property is just as swish as we’d hoped, and it’s definitely got that Marriott charm, despite it being a bit small. Polite staff, a lavish lobby and a cute little cafe, Glazed, welcomes you first. Offering plenty of eats and treats, refuel on everything from protein bars to doughnuts here. We downed some fresh lemonade and headed to their rooftop.

    Perhaps our favourite part of the hotel, their rooftop infinity pool was begging us to jump in and cool off. Float under the bright sunny skies, many many feet above the ground, maybe with a cocktail in hand. How’s that for a cooling dip? When you’re done splashing around, sit back in their comfy beach chairs and take in views of the Bangalore skyline that you can see so clearly from up there.

    Star Quality

    We checked out the rooms at the new hotel and we’re pleased to say that they hold up to the set standard. Bouncy beds, fluffy pillows, fancy bathrooms, great views of Bangalore, the works. When the tummy starts rumbling, it’s time to make your mind up because they’ve got quite a few dining options here, with some yet to open. We went to Hebbal Cafe, a fine dining space that serves a buffet. From Indian khana to a pasta station, most world cuisines find representation in the spread. They keep changing up their menu, so you’re always in for a surprise here. Need to balance out all that eating with a few {ahem} drinks? There’s a bar right next to Hebbal Cafe that’ll mix up your favourite boozy drinks and some yummy mocktails too.

    Burn off all those calories at their gym. It’s a pretty cool spot as it overlooks that part of the city, and you can run on a treadmill pretending you’re running on air. Or hit up the spa to take your indulgence to a whole new level. Either way, you’re bound to have a relaxed and easy time here. It’s also a great place to check into for out-of-towners, as it’s just before the city limits, and easy to access from the airport, before the traffic begins!
