In common, “Renaissance” could resonate with the revival of 14th-century European culture and style, having said that, in Mumbai, this word echoes with the Marriott Hotel which sits as the crown jewel in the posh place of Powai. A home exactly where hospitality is not just a word, rather it is an ideology, a way of performing steady business enterprise. Even although Renaissance Mumbai has been curating luxurious experiences with arresting styles and finishes for more than a decade, I not too long ago had the possibility to knowledge it up and close for the duration of my weekend-keep in one particular of the Powai Lake Suites. If I have been, to sum up, this home in one particular sentence, I’d say, “Renaissance Mumbai is life and beauty place collectively, for you to appear and really feel it with kid-like simplicity.”
No matter whether it be, the distant view of crocodiles sunbathing in the lake or the intricate recipes that drive the culinary heritage of the hotel. Every single element is bound to fill you with excitement, never ever felt ahead of!
For me, the optimistic power propped up the moment I checked in. The reception employees greeted me warmly with minimal formalities, promptly handing more than the digital space important card. In addition, what definitely exhilarated me was the truth that they asked me about my travel and meals journey as a blogger. The excitement rubbed off quickly and so the conversation pursued all along the splendid passageway. The hotel employees was also type to escort me till the grand elevator which then carried me to the thirty-fourth floor.
Then came the moment of a renaissance! The “Duplex Suite” on the 34th-floor pulls out all the ‘swanky’ stops. It spans two plush rooms topped by higher ceilings, complete-length windows, a formal dining location with a modern chandelier and hospitality to cater to your each whim. Additionally, the reduced-floor flaunts ample seating that can accommodate five-six guests and need to function good for a family members of 4. Note that this floor has a separate washroom.
The master bedroom, on the upper floor, is but a different spectacular style with an open bath notion. Not only, does it let you appreciate the ravishing lake views from each corner, but also, gives a partial glimpse of the outside pool. Merely watching persons take a summer time dip enticed me to get down to the ground floor and devote some time by the outside poolside.
All in all, the Duplex suite is a soulful surprise enveloped, in plush furnishings and polished amenities. Apart from, for the relaxing atmosphere it gives, I consider it is a bargain for the value of $300 per evening. Whilst you keep right here, use the “motorised curtain glider” to restrict the intensity of sunshine in the day whilst letting it safeguard your privacy in the evening. Other amenities consist of a function desk, HDTV, protected, minibar, stroll-in closet, coffee/tea creating facility.
When I stepped outdoors my suite, a complete new globe of leisure activities was awaiting my presence. For instance, dining at each the Emperor’s Court, the Oriental speciality restaurant, as properly as, Nawab Saheb, the Indian speciality restaurant was a special knowledge. That along with, poolside exploration paired with hazelnut cappuccino and vibrant macaroons at Mumbai Express, the deli. The Quan spa is the show stopper although, very advised. I signed up for a 60-minute aromatherapy session which was combined with the ‘hot stone massage’ upon request.
I have to say, by the finish of the massage, my tense muscle tissues have been so relaxed that I could barely really feel my physique. The therapist applied the suitable stress to the broken soft tissues and in amongst, massaged my back with hot stones ahead of leaving them there for a whilst. The hands-on methods turned out to be the ultimate anxiety buster, a thing I would undoubtedly return to, on my subsequent trip.
Verify out the waning moon I captured from my Master Bedroom in the evening ahead of a fantastic night’s sleep. The mornings are a delight in the beauty! Not only does it draw in the clear sightings of the lake but also, contains a lavish and complimentary buffet breakfast at the Executive lounge on the thirty-sixth floor. They say this is the biggest Executive-Lounge in India and oh boy, it is enormous! The initial day, I ate my breakfast right here, whilst the second day I ordered-in. As a solo traveller, I consider I have got really comfy with the complete thought of consuming alone.
So, when my in-space ‘American Breakfast’ arrived with add-on Nutella pancakes and Dutch cream waffles, I felt as pampered as a kid. Interestingly, the pastry chefs left sweet morning messages on the plate with the chocolate sauce. That topped with a double shot of espresso and a glass of orange juice! Couldn’t get much better than this.
On the complete, my keep in this fashionable, spacious and really private retreat with views of the lake was pretty a coddle. It is fantastic for solo travellers, households, and couples looking for a tranquil abode, regardless of whether brief or lengthy term. In brief, Renaissance Mumbai is exactly where you can count on absolutely nothing significantly less than impeccable hospitality and fantastic service! Apart from, this tranquil retreat is your very best bet to escape the chaotic life in Mumbai, whilst you are nevertheless close to the city. Massive thanks to Renaissance for hosting me so wonderfully and for creating this a fantastic weekend staycation.
