Staycation at WelcomHotel Dwarka

The dip in mercury lent a mini vacation to kiddos from school and we decided to live it up with a staycation at WelcomHotel Dwarka. Having explored all options in Millenium city this one felt right since it’s  pretty much on the border and just a 40 minutes drive away. All we wanted was to chill in our room since we didn’t know what was in store. 
We arrived into a lounge shimmering with mirrored pillars, several luminous Christmas trees, red poinsettias adding gaiety and a little more Christmas flavour, we knew we had made the right choice. For fitness freaks like me , they have a well equipped gym along with a swimming pool. Our spacious room overlooked this pool and also accorded views of the city.

Spacious and comfortable is how I would describe my room and was perfect for the 3 of us with every amenity needed for a stay. The couch in front of the TV was mostly utilised by my kiddos while I crashed on the bed before checking out the rest of the property.

Lehengas and Sherwanis around me spoke of how this hotel is a favoured wedding venue and its three banquet halls definitely facilitate that. With New year’s  eve around the corner, their Pan Asian restaurant Shanghai Club is hosting several themed nights and it was the masquerade night . However since its an ITC property, I wanted to indulge in Dal Bukhara and Dum Pukht Biryani and the restaurant of choice naturally was Kebabs and Kurries. At K&K as its otherwise called , the menu encompasses iconic dishes from ITC viz Dal Bukhara and Dum Pukht Biryani along with several kebabs that deserve a mention on their own. Live sufi music and zillions of candles lend an old world regal charm .While the Dum ke Bhoole set me in the mood, the Dal Bukhara sent me into rapturous ecstasy. Don’t miss the Shaan-e-aam for mango lovers like moi, it’s a decadent concoction that lingers on the palette for a really long time.

Day 2 was express relaxation with only a few hours to spare and I chose that to luxuriate in a therapeutic spa session.If ITC hotels  were synonymous with food and hospitality , then their spa experience will change your perception . Refreshed and rejuvenated after my signature welcome treatment , I made way for the Sunday brunch.More live music and a huge gastronomic feast awaited us. From Chaat, Pasta , to Biryanis and dessert while listening to the song of your choice ,this is a great family indulgence.

Any good experience is only possible courtesy good service staff. From the front desk, spa therapist to the  staff at restaurants, this is where WelcomHotel Dwarka shines . Their smiling, informed servers ensure a guest leaves only to come back for another amazing experience .
