Small joys in Shoghi with Aamod Resorts

The literal meaning of 'Aamod' is small joys. This translates into the tagline of the hospitality group - choti choti khushiyaan. For those wanting to escape the crowd and cacophony of the loud festive season in North India, a quick and serene getaway is possible in Shoghi. The charm of a place is in discovering its secrets. And Aamod Resorts at Shoghi will allow you to truly explore and find your anchors in this less known hill station. You can truly

A Golden Time At Golden Tusk

Jim Corbett National Park, in Uttarakhand, is one of my favourite places to go to. This year for my summer vacations, my mother and I with her friend and her son stayed in a resort named The Golden Tusk. We went to Ramnagar by train from Old Delhi Railway Station. I was so excited to see an open jeep with 'The Golden Tusk' written on it waiting for us at the station. We reached around 9 in the night and

Luxuriously Rustic – The Lalit Mangar

One of the first things that I do right at the beginning of every year is to mark all the long weekends (with a work bunk added here and there) that the calendar has to offer. After all, why have one big holiday when you can have several through the year (travel addict traits!). Many friends often ask me, 'where do you go?'. My answer is always - "AWAY from the city!" One such recent escape was to The Lalit

THN Exclusive: Kitty Ko, brand new lounge at The Lalit, Chandigarh

A definite crowd-puller and a popular jaunt across metros in India, Kitty Su at The Lalit in Chandigarh is the most popular nightclub of the tricity. The brainchild of The Lalit Suri Hospitality Group Executive Director Keshav Suri, has been voted Best Nightclub at the Times Food and Nightlife Awards two years in a row. And OKO, its award-winning Pan-Asian restaurant is a favourite with the crème de la crème. The best of both worlds have now combined to create

In Joyous Company at Alwar Bagh by Aamod

As the boundaries of our spaces in the world, in itself shrinking, become tighter, places of tranquillity are becoming rarer to find. In the one month where we celebrate love (perhaps with more fervour than we do through the year), it is always nice to escape to islands of 'escape' from cities - whether it is to pamper yourself, or your partner. A couple's holiday at a stone's throw from home offers the chance of a quick romantic getaway - to

New menu launch at Baluchi, The Lalit Chandigarh

Innovation is the mainstay of any F&B outlet that aims to consistently please palates. And when we talk of Baluchi, we are speaking of one of the most popular pan-Indian speciality restaurants in India. It is, but obvious, that introduction of new flavours will be a given. Turns out that the speciality restaurant at The Lalit, Chandigarh has outdone itself under the watchful eyes of Executive Chef Shibiraj Saha and Chef Rajeev Thakur, in giving its existing menu a facelift.

Experience serenity at Shri Radha Brij Vasundhara Resort

Shri Radha Brij Vasundhara Resort, Govardhan

Brijbhumi, the land of Lord Krishna, is flocked with devotees all throughout the year. While some from the nearby cities opt for a day trip, many like to spend few nights in this divine land where the Hindu mythological deity Lord Krishna was born and spent the early years of his life. And if you are from the later category, then Shri Radha Brij Vasundhara Resort & Spa can be your pick. Located only 30km from Mathura Railway Station, the property is

Bingeing at Baluchi, The Lalit Chandigarh

It is rather difficult to be able to stand your ground as a Pan-Indian cuisine restaurant in a city where people take as much pride in being able to cook food as they take in eating it. And this is why, I would like to give brownie points to Baluchi at The Lalit in Chandigarh, for it lays equal emphasis on food innovations, ambience, service - to be able to stand out from the crowded market of eateries serving the

Flavours of Asia at OKO, The Lalit

In a relatively short time, OKO, the restaurant at The Lalit Group of Hotels has seduced the palates of foodies that love Pan Asian cuisine. And it is truly PAN Asian. One of the most celebrated restaurants in Asia, the bouquet of cuisines served at OKO includes Japanese, Indonesian, Vietnamese and Malaysian, apart from the obvious Thai and Chinese. We recently visited the one located at The Lalit, Chandigarh. OKO's success can be attributed to its carefully crafted dishes. Crafted, is

Royal rejuvenation at Ramgarh Heritage

The charm of a royal and luxurious accommodation that also has the distinction of being steeped in history is irresistible. We had the opportunity of being invited for a staycation at the Ramgarh Heritage (off Chandigarh, bordering Panchkula and not to be confused with the dilapidated Ramgarh Fort!) recently. As soon as you enter the hallowed gates of the 325-old enormous haveli, you are plied with soothing glasses of aam panna or neembupani laced with fresh mint. About seven generations of Chandel
