We all want a vacation minus the frenzy that comes with the waking up early, travelling, and sticking to a set timeline, especially if it’s just for the weekend. But it’s not quite the same if you checked in to a star hotel in the middle of the city. Doesn’t really feel like an “escape”. Head to Leela Bhartiya City, for the luxury holiday experience minus the hassle.
Unless you stay in and around Hennur, this still makes for quite the drive. If you head there during spring, you’ll be greeted by an avenue of beautifully flowering trees. You’ll be welcomed with a beverage, and taken to your room. The rooms come with a workstation and high-speed internet (in case you want to do a workation instead!) along with all the other comforts usually offered by The Leela. Once you’re settled in and fresh, feel free to eat at the Lotus Oriental (Pan-Asian), Quattro (All day dining, multi-cuisine with an exhaustive buffet), or Falak (Awadhi & North-West Frontier cuisine that you can read more about here). Whatever your food and diet. preferences are, they have something for you, and are happy to cater to any special requests. Feel free to explore the property on cycles you can rent from the reception, take a dip in the pool or a nap.
Come evenings, you can request high tea with your choice of beverage (their filter coffee is great too). Or you can just lounge at The Library Bar as their bartender whips up classic cocktails or anything you like really. Next morning, enjoy the complimentary breakfast buffet. Everything from long ghee roast dosas, poha, and pongal to muesli, eggs (made to order too), and options from the morning bakery are available. A one night stay at the Deluxe room costs upwards of INR 7,500.
