Comfort, Class and Cleanliness is on my priority list whenever I decide to stay at any hotel. Cozy beds, fresh aroma, smiling faces and efficient services is all that i want whenever I am away from home. Last week, while we visited Kolkata, we checked into Hyatt Regency for a couple of days.
This room that you can see here in the photographs was spectacular. It was an elegant, bi-level luxurious suite with interior featuring skylight, Malaysian teak floors and textured walls that complement living area, marble bath with jetted spa tub and rain shower. Had an exhilarating experience, with efficient and warm staff who provided us with the best services.
Hyatt Regency portrays spectacular landscape gardens featuring 234 luxury rooms including 70 Regency Club rooms and 13 suites supported by world-class amenities.
Fresh Fruits, Buttered Muffins, Delicious Doughnuts, Yummy Buns, Hot Coffee and Some Balloons..!! Yeah that’s what I wanted in my breakfast and that’s exactly what I got. I was quite impressed by Hyatt’s hospitality, detailing and efficiency.
Travel, Eat, Train, Sleep, Repeat
Travelling is my passion and exploring new cuisines is a hobby. While having this kind of a lifestyle, if one doesn’t exercise or follow a fitness regime, you’re bound to gain weight endlessly or become lethargic, hence I ensure to take out at least 45 minutes everyday to exercise, no matter which part of the world I am in. Got introduced to some new equipments, machines & techniques while exercising at Hyatt Regency, Kolkata.
Hyatt Regency, Kolkata has a 10,000 sq ft. wellness centre on the premises of the hotel, comprising of 2,200 sq ft fully equipped gymnasium featuring the latest cardiovascular equipment, as well as separate spas for men and women, with a steam room, a sauna, a whirlpool bath and a chill pool..!!
OMG, let’s play some squash.
Heart is where the pool is. Lost my heart at this gorgeous pool, the best in town @hyattregencykolkata
~ Holistic, Natural & Therapeutic ~
Apart from being an excellent stress reliever, a spa can do wonders for health. I have been suffering from a backache from the last couple of months and was thinking of indulging in a relaxing spa. Deep tissue massage helps releasing chronic muscle tension, lowering spasms, treating anxiety, reducing arthritis symptoms, lowering blood pressure and improving recovery from injuries.
While staying at Hyatt Regency, Kolkata, I decided to take up a spa for my bachache, before stepping out to explore the city. The therapist was extremely professional and skilful. As it’s required in a deep tissue massage, the therapist used various techniques with fingertips, knuckles, hands, elbows, and forearms to stress on various parts of the body. It was an extremely rejuvenating and relaxing experience and despite taking that session for an hour, I didn’t want it to end. The massage not only alleviated my pain but also helped me get a sound sleep that night.
Club Prana at Hyatt Regency, Kolkata offers a wide range of relaxing services including massages, body wraps, and facials. Their treatments focus on integrating holistic, natural, and therapeutic techniques to ensure providing an optimal wellness and relaxation..!! An absolute perfect place for rejuvenation and detoxification from the regular hustle bustle of city life.
Sunday’s Stunning Spread
From a world cuisine to authentic Italian or a true taste of Indian delicacies, the hotel offers a variety of choices of Kolkata restaurants. Italian Sunday Pranzo at La Cucina, the special Sunday Brunch at Waterside Café, specially crafted Women’s Healthy menu or extremely popular breakfast at Waterside Café adds varieties of luxury dining in Kolkata. The food served at Hyatt is spectacular but what I loved the most was their Sunday Brunch spread. It is so well prepared, spread and presented that you would end up just going gaga over it.
I loved every bit of my experience at Hyatt Regency in Kolkata and I hope to return soon again..!!Tumi’i śrēṣṭha Hyatt, Āmi śīghra’i ābāra dēkhā habē..!!!Lots of Love..!!
Beautiful Bridal Attire is the first thing that comes to our mind when we hear about Indian’s most celebrated designer Tarun Tahiliani. Well, here’s the twist, this time, TT has extended his fashion sensibilities for designing Rugs & Carpets. Yes, you heard it right my friend!
WHAT’S THIS BUZZ ALL ABOUT: Tarun Tahiliani has partnered with OBEETEE, the premium rugmaker brand to bring a spectacular collection of hand knotted carpets
WHAT CAN WE DO ABOUT IT: This is one key accessory that can add oodles of style to your home and give it a touch of ethnicity & class, if that’s how you like it!
WHEN DID THIS HAPPEN: Tarun unveiled an exclusive collection of handmade carpets. The collection, centered on the ‘Proud to be Indian’ theme, showcases quintessential Indian designs for the first time in the country’s artistic rug heritage.
WHAT MORE CAN I KNOW:The framework of his collection is based upon three distinct design structures — The Antique Frames Collection, The Chikankari Collection, and The Abstract Art Collection. Antique frames collection is based on the borders painted in the most elaborate refinement, on the periphery of most Mughal miniature paintings. Each rug is finished with a distressed look to reflect the patina of that era.
The rugs were recently launched by the designer himself at the majestic Bikaner House.
EXPERT COMMENTS: While speaking to us, Rudra Chatterjee, Chairman, OBEETEE stated ‘’This is the home jewellery worth every penny. The designs of ‘Proud to be Indian collection’ are quite unique, these are the high end couture rug pieces that have never been woven before. While Tahiliani has designed our maiden India-inspired collection, we are bringing more such illustrious designers of the Indian design circuit like Raghavendra Rathore, Abraham & Thakore, to conceptualise this ambitious project, Proud to be Indian.’’
In Tarun’s words, “This is the first time a serious collection of rugs is coming out that is designed and conceived entirely in India by Indians. The collection is quintessentially Indian and very contemporary from the design point of view”
The limited edition designs will also be taken across the globe, beginning with US in February. A series of exclusive exhibitions and receptions will also be held in honor of each designer in New York, spanning next few months.
DID YOU KNOW:
OBEETEE has the honour of having its carpets at Rashtrapati Bhawan as well as the Buckingham Palace. One of its rugs at the Rashtrapati Bhawan, among the biggest created by the firm, measures 452 square metres and consists of “billions of intricate knots”.
The product is priced between Rs5 lakh and Rs12 lakh and will sell from the brand’s boutique at Taj Khazana and Tahiliani’s store in Mehrauli

You have to take a short walk, before you finally reach your room, and one can even choose the trolley car if wanting to avoid the walk..
We chose to walk instead, enjoying the colourful flowers smiling all across. The fresh air will charge up your lungs with energy and vigour.
This was our home for the weekend and we loved it
The rooms are huge and spacious, with 2 balconies attached. Had our morning tea in that balcony with birds chirping and singing around, it works as sound therapy

The Westin Lake- Mini Kerala is how I will define it
It was a special day, after all it was my dear husband’s birthday and we decided to splurge. Varq was one name on my husband’s mind since long and we finally decided to go there for a special meal.
Named for India’s exotic edible gold leaf, Varq seats 82 guests and includes a private dining room for 14. Interior designers Mario and Theo Nicolaou created a classic contemporary ambiance by using dark wood, creamy leather and gold textures to complement traditional Indian artwork. Rosewood wall paneling and a dark chocolate tile floor contrast with the gold leaf coffered ceiling. The restaurant’s dramatic entrance features a pair of illuminated cylindrical glass sculptures with polished cut glass floral details set in gold leaf to create a sense of arrival at a jeweled trinket box.
This ultra-fine dining Indian restaurant is placed a level down from the ground floor, on the left side. You need to take the staircase to reach the restaurant. As we entered, the décor seemed quite sophisticated and classy. Overlooking, the lush gardens, we took the corner table. The garden view from the window glass and beams of sunlight falling on us seemed quite enchanting.
While we were being asked on our choice for a bottled Or sparkling water, I left no chance to let them know that it was my husband’s birthday 😉 I am quite shameless like that and my husband was hell embarrassed. You think, it mattered to me, never!
We were now welcomed with their signature mocktail drink ‘Tamarind Orange Juice’ (FYI- This is not a regular pattern, we were served this drink because it was a special day for us 😉 The drink was really refreshing and the taste was wonderful.
Now, the important moment, what to order? I try to be wise at times, to save some portions of our hard earned money (Or so I would like to believe :P). We chose dishes from the Main Course Menu- Paneer Anardana (Cottage Cheese with pounded pomegranate) – full portion, Dal Makhani (red lentils simmered overnight and enriched with chef’s special recipe) & Lasooni Palak (Spinach tempered with Garlic) –From the choice of Samplers, Martabaan ka Meat (lamb cooked with pickled chillies in an earthen pot)- Husband’s choice (I am strictly a vegetarian) and our respective choice of breads.
Samplers were strictly just as the name suggests, they were not enough for even one person. Dal Makhani was average, Lasooni Palak was decent, Paneer was sumptuous and Meat was relishing (in my husband’s words). Size of bread was too small (pricing is not as small though). You can’t complain because you’ve entered a 5 star hotel and you’re supposed to be having overpriced dishes. I understand and accept, but can we not have better portions at least for the kind of money we are paying.
Mr. Thomas (the representative who served us) was kind enough to offer us sweet paan, followed by a birthday present (rose tea leaves packed in a lovely pink cover). Very thoughtful of them to do this gesture J!
Overall, the experience was lovely and the food was decent. Portions can get better as per the pricing.
WHAT WE KNOW ABOUT VARQ: It is a modern Indian gourmet dining experience with authentic, artistic dishes created by Taj Corporate Chef Hemant Oberoi and paired with teas to enhance enjoyment of the dishes’ ingredients. Varq is part of Chef Oberoi’s masala cuisine concept, which reinvents Indian food with new techniques, innovative plated presentations and organic produce and spices. Chef Oberoi is faithful to the diverse homemade Indian dishes, while evolving traditional Indian recipes for contemporary palates. At Varq, he uses ingredients such as sea bass, diver’s scallops, foie gras, halibut, sand crab and Karachi prawns.
