Travel : Our Grand Holiday

I love the idea of staycations. It is very important to take regular breaks from the routine life but not always one has the time to plan and go on a proper vacation, this is where the concept of staycations comes in. It could be a destination escape or a property located right in the middle of your city, choose as per your budget, time and requirements. This post is about one such staycation we took to celebrate our first wedding anniversary.

About the property :  The property stands true to its name- it is palatial, serene and a true reflection of the Royal Bharat. We were mesmerized from the moment we stepped inside the hotel grounds. Amidst Impeccable Greenery and beautiful water bodies stands the gigantic- palace looking hotel. We were received with a traditional welcome and a beautiful stole as a souvenir. Also the welcome drink served at their “Peacock Bar” was refreshing. It was almost lunch time so we decided to go for lunch by the time the check in formalities would also get completed.

Dining options : We chose “The India Room” restaurant for lunch, it had an amazing three course Italian buffet with some splendid cocktails. The interiors of the restaurants are so tastefully done up, we were really in awe of the colours and aesthetics. After the sumptuous meal, we went to our room and where we again witnessed the ITC hospitality, our room was upgraded to a suite with an attached pool. They surely know how to keep their guests coming back all the time.

The rooms at ITC are named after cities having historical significance like Varanasi, Hampi, Thanesar etc. The decor style of the room is classy but minimal giving a very relaxed vibe. The aura of the overall place takes you back to medieval India. We spent the afternoon in there heated outdoor pool, the attached pool will be a big hit for summers.

Night lends a different charm to the place with beautifully lit chandeliers and candles. Due to immense greenery, the atmosphere is really pleasant and rejuvenating. One wishes having a permanent residence in this majestic palace.

Recommendation : I would not recommend it to people coming to Delhi/NCR for business/leisure purposes as it is quite far from the main city. Also spending so much does not make sense if you would not be enjoying the place completely. It is definitely an apt option for people looking for a weekend getaway near Delhi. You will come back refreshed and feeling like a Royal.

We made our booking through Goibibo, you can browse more about the hotel at TripAdvisor, Happy Holidaying.

Accessories : A Bohemian Trend

Dupattas/stoles/scarves have been a quintessential part of our dressing, they add the much needed elegance or quirkiness to the look. At times it is the rich dupattas in Tussar/Chanderi or the trendy stoles in pastel prints.

Pairing jewellery with dupattas/scarves gets complicated as both are attention grabbing accessories and both are to be worn around the neck. So this new trend provides a unique solution by combining the two and giving way to “scarf jewellery“. 

It is classy and chic at the same time, here’s a look at some of these-

Accessories : A New Jewellery Trend

Right jewelry can make or break any look. Jewelry is the fetish of every woman in our country, but there is a unique dilemma which perplexes most of us. It is the Gold Vs semi precious jewelry fix, which most us find ourselves into. I keep getting a constant scolding from my mom about spending money on artificial jewelry instead of gold. Yes, Gold is precious and everlasting but the problem is it cannot sync with the indo-western gown or our usual Anarkali or even a pastel colored saree.

I stumbled upon this new jewelry range from ace designer “Suhani Pittie”, she has been rated as one of the most innovative jewelry designers by the world gold council. She combines gold with basic elements like copper and gives them unique geometric designs which can complement and any look be it Indian or western. And yes It’s Gold…B-Town beauties like Kareena, Sonam, Vidya Balan have been wearing her jewelry on numerous occasions. Here’s a look at some of my favorite picks :
