Quick Getaway: Swim, Skate, Bowl & Get Pampered At This Pretty Hotel In Agra


    Jaypee Palace Hotel in Agra is set amidst an ocean of serene green, stunning water bodies and Mughal inspired architecture, and is bound to leave you feeling relaxed.

    Things To Do

    Weekend getaways are typically laid-back, but at this stunning resort you can choose to dial up {or down} the action any level you want. With grounds spanning an unbounded 25 acres, there is swimming, squash, a fitness centre and even a skating rink to get your pulse going. If indoor action is more up your alley, you can indulge in foosball, air hockey or even a bowling alley to shoot down some pins.

    On the greener side, there are walking trails, lush lawns and a kitchen and herb garden. Beautifully manicured, and perfect for sunset strolls, don’t be surprised if you spot adorable owls observing you silently in the still of the night.

    Where's The Food?

    You are spoiled for choice when it comes to dining. We ate our way through their fine dining Chinese restaurant C’est Chine and especially loved the Sautéed Prawns with Garlic served sizzler style {very fresh and juicy!}, the crunchy Chinese Greens, and the very dainty Date Filled Lychees served with ice-cream. For heartier and superbly balanced Indian fare we turned to Paatra, the in-house North Indian diner where we partook of Slow Cooked Lamb Shanks, a fresh Fruit Chaat, velvety Black Dal and a gorgeous traditional dessert platter.

    There is also a 24 hour restro-café called the Pavilion Café for breezier eats, which stars thin crust pizzas, chunky Fish Fingers, and other small bites.

    All that food got to you? Hop in for a relaxing Kerala Oil Massage at Tamaya and sip on single origin floral teas.

    So, We're Saying...

    Jaypee is perfect  for a little recharging and a much needed reboot.
