Live like a royal

Jaipur is the capital of Rajasthan. It has a royal feel. It is also called the Pink City. Resplendent in the hues of its magnificent past, Jaipur is one of the most vibrant destinations in India. I wanted a royal stay so my ultimate choice was the Taj Jai Mahal Palace.

Its positioned at Jacob Road in Jaipur and is surrounded by places to visit like Hanuman Temple (Approx. 0.25km) and Ramkrishna Mission (Approx. 2km).
Jai Mahal Palace, Jaipur portrays the true Rajasthani culture perfectly. The traditional touch in the decor of the room blends perfectly with the range of contemporary amenities offered. The 5-star Jai Mahal Palace offers a range of rooms featuring modern and classic Indian-style décor. Solid wooden flooring, a flat-screen TV and luxurious bathrooms with a bathtub are standard in all rooms. It is tastefully restored and decorated to reflect the Mughal-style grandeur.Its an 18th century fort surrounded by manicured gardens and fountains where regal peacocks wander.

Concierge services and a business centre are available. A game of chess with life-size chessmen can also be enjoyed.

The rooms in the hotel are comfortable and well furnished..

Feel pampered

My most favorite destination in India is Goa, a tiny emerald land on the west coast of India. Goa is also known

for its beaches, ranging from popular stretches at Baga and Palolem to those in laid-back fishing villages such as Agonda.

I selected The Lalit Golf & Spa Resort Goa which is richly designed on 85 acres along the pristine Goan coastline.
This hotel offers a breathtaking view of the Arabian Sea. A kilometer-long exclusive beachfront made me fall in love with this place. Its one of the most exquisite beach resorts in Goa.
I was welcomed by a friendly staff with a traditional drink which I sipped while admiring the rustic chandeliers, antique long-handled ceiling fans and a grand staircase overlooking a hand-painted tile mosaic of Sao Rafael, the very first Portuguese ship to land in Goa under the helm of Vasco Da Gama in the grand lobby.

This resort has everything which I imagined. Grand Baroque-Portuguese style architecture, meticulously landscaped gardens, international standard Double ‘T’ 9-hole Links golf course and Rejuve – the signature spa,luxury of
oceanfront privacy.

It has 255 suites, including 10 luxurious villas. A nine-hole links golf course, water sports facility, a holistic spa and six unique fine dining restaurants make The Lalit Golf & Spa Resort the perfect destination for relaxation and rejuvenation.

Lalit Goa is a huge placed with spacious rooms. One can experience a unique blend of comfort and serenity. The resort is a great place to stay, for both leisure and business purpose.

The resort is just 15 minutes drive from Palolem Beach. Colva and Benaulim beaches are 40 km away from the resort. Interesting tourist spots like Sahakari spice farms, Ponda Temples called Mahalsa and Mangueshi are located at a distance of 40 & 60 km respectively.

The resort has 255 air conditioned rooms offering 238 sea view and garden view suites, 14 luxury suites and 3 presidential suites. Internet facility inside every room keeps the guest well connected with family and friends.

I booked a Garden view Suite King for myself
My suite had an attached or balcony with a sea/garden view. Tea/coffee makers and a mini bar were provided for refreshments. All suites have individual climate control, color TV with satellite network, DVD player, Wi-Fi connectivity, international direct dialing facility, alarm clock, electrical adapters, safe, iron and ironing board.

hour room service and in house laundry.
It has been amazing to spend a few days at The Lalit. The facilities are fantastitc. The restaurants, the rooms, the swimming pool, and not forgetting the golf course are marvelous. I don't play golf, but enjoyed watching a game.

Rejuva, the holistic spa offers aroma, ayurvedic and herbal therapies to the guests which I highly recommend. Fitness club is the perfect place for fitness freaks like me and one can indulge in recreational activities like swimming, tennis, squash and jogging.
There is a big Banquet hall which can accommodate around 550 persons and the resort provides all the necessary wedding services. I even purchased gifts and souvenirs from the resort's shopping arcade. The most amazing thing is that the resort has its own helipad.
In addition round the clock in room service and other services like travel desk, baby sitting, wheel chair access and doctor on call for any emergency are also provided by the resort.
In house coffee shop and 6 dining outlets with live open kitchens serve ample cuisine choices.
