Staycation is the synonym to escape hustle bustle and the chaos of the city – TheGlocalJournal
I am high on staycations . I usually don’t get time to go for long vacations due to busy schedule .
I chose holiday inn , Mumbai for the weekend . It is a beautiful commercial property accessible from the airport and metro station. Coming back , as I entered I was welcomed by the warm staff and was directed to my room . The room was comfortable . Lets unwind by the terrace pool :
Then I headed directly for a relaxing dip into the ppol . The pool is on a terrace . The view from the pool describes the city of Bombay – skyscrapers , houses , factories . The pool is a refresher by itself as its right in the open . The water is also warm .
I ordered hot fries with watermelon juice to unwind by the pool . The vibes are very calming . I sat by bed rest and read a book
Soothing Spa at TATTVA
Next up I decided to go to the spa . TATTVA SPA at holiday inn is made in a very spacious way . Four spa rooms with steam . According to me , spa therapies are ESSENTIAL . They rejuvenate the body They regenrate your mind They relax your soul One time , spend something on what you love as you deserve it . Pamper yourself . You are welcomed by the warm staff as you enter . And then
Step 1 : Choose the spa which you want from the menu … From beauty exilirs to swedish massage they have it all . Since I like medium pressure and more calming experience , I chose the Indian Abhiyanga which is priced at Rs 2800 . Then choose the oil . They use oils originated from Indan roots . I chose the Pavitra Blend which contained rosewood , rose , olive essential oil . It smelt only “unwind”
Step 2: They welcome you with a form on which you can write how do you want your spa to be … relaxing , calming or releasing muscle tension
Step 3 : The warm masseuse takes you inside the room . Legit you are exported to serenity . Sweet Aroma , Soft Music , Soothing Lights – What else would you want ? Initially I began with warm foot massage. The masseuse was very sweet . She started the massage , she asked me if the pressure was okay and was very caring . Gradually the muscles were being relaxed , the serenity was enrapturing . I felt at my best – relaxed and rejuvenated . The head massage specially was very soothing and calming . I then went for steam . The steam was parfait !! Perfecrly Hot and Steamy … As all my stress was released and my pores were open , I was feeling more radiant from the inside . I had a calm shower and was ready to tackle a crazy week
Lets hog onto some dinner
By now I was starving , so I chose to go for scrumptious buffet at Saptami .
Wholesome elaborate spread containing Indian , Chaat and some dishes inspired from Continental cuisine.
Post the meal , I headed for binge shows and snuggle in bed . It was so comfortable .
Breakfast in bed anybody? The thing what I loved the most was that they had a checklist kind of ” I would love to have breakfast in bed” …. It literally was a little gift to beat Monday blues.
The bed in breakfast had everything from the time I want to specifications to all. As I woke up , the breakfast arrived . It was a very royal feeling . The steward accompanied by the waiter came with a cart having my elaborate spread .
From fork knives to choices of jam to jars of milk to a heater accompanied in my trolley for my paneer paratha , it was the best thing that could happen on a Monday morning . And then I checked out .
Loved the warm hospitality of the staff . Overall it was a memorable budget stay . When are you heading for a staycation ?
