Do A Staycation Right Here On MG Road Amidst A Tropical Paradise At This Iconic Hotel
The Oberoi will make you forget that you are right in the middle of the busy MG Road. With lush tropical gardens, classy rooms, and specialty restaurants, this is a city retreat perfect for a weekend staycation.
What Makes It Awesome
Room service, a session at the spa and a swim with a big, fat breakfast at a hotel in the middle of the city, will have anyone willing to take that staycation. Check-in, take a room tour of double bedroom with a shiny bathtub, and balcony with a view to kill for. None of them face outwards towards MG Road or traffic. Instead, they face inwards, where once you step into the balcony (all rooms come with a balcony), you'll find lush green lawns, trees and a pool peeking out below. The property was planned around a couple of rain trees that still stand testimony to time. With all possible modern amenities (Including WiFi), the hotel has tied up with the Karnataka electricity board and uses electricity powered by windmill energy. To relax, pick from a range of luxurious massages and treatments at the spa like their revitalising Body Therapies which include a Classic Hungarian body wrap or an alphonso mango and sugar scrub. Or you can go for Thai or Balinese style of head, shoulder and back massages. The spa also offers longer (two and a half hours) Ayurvedic rituals and luxurious facials.
If you're feeling really indulgent (or are in the mood to spend for something special) check in to The Oberoi’s Presidential Suite which comes with its own lawns on the first floor of the hotel and butler service. Between drinking guava chilli mojitos, nibbling on sea salt and honeyed almonds, and tucking into some fantastic starters, admire the view with one of the property’s massive Rain Trees, all lit up in the evenings. Designed by Singapore-based architect Richard Tan, who brought in his South East Asian sensibilities with sturdy tropical plants (100 species), plenty of water bodies and koi fish. If you love the garden, head to lunch at Rim Naam (the Thai restaurant), in it. Try the Som Tam here and the steamed fish, and don’t forget to order yourself a Molten Chocolate cake or bitter chocolate ice cream for dessert.
