Radisson Blu, one of the world’s leading brands with nearly 300 hotels in operation in 69 countries and territories, announced the “Love Blu, Be Pink” campaign where one room in each participating hotel across the globe has turned pink for the month of October. The pink Business Class guest room features pink décor and other special pink amenities. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of the pink rooms will benefit charities that support breast cancer research and awareness.
They invited me to stay over and experience one of their business suits, where the room was turned into pink in accordance with the theme.
Food: Street Food Festival
The food festival was part of their restaurant ‘Chill’. While the indoors is quite fine dining experience the outdoors have been altered with vibrant decor and food stalls like tandoor’s, carts and grills, that give you a street side familiarity.
The best part of this food festival is it wasn’t just restricted to chaat treats like pani puri and tikkis but also had delicacies like mirchi bhaijji, chole bhature, idli-dosa, kheema pav and not to forget momo’s.
They even had live dessert counters for Jalebi rabri and cotton candy. The street food festival was however the extension of the regular buffet so we had option to choose form wide variety of salads, breads, main course and of course Biryani and desserts.
Chef also went beyond his way to sneak in a ‘Basil’ (other restaurant of Radisson) delicacy –Lobsters, sharp in aroma but full points for taste.
Overall the restaurant experience for dinner was very good and so was the breakfast, being weekend they have an extended lavish breakfast-brunch that is open till 12.
Like they said- Lavish, it had everything from English breakfast essentials, like beans, sausages, cereal and breads; and also south Indian delicacies like dosa and appam. What I loved the most was wide variety croissants, muffins (what can I say I love thy breads and maple topped pancakes.
Spa: Serena Spa
What is a staycation without Pampering. There in-house spa promotes Ayurveda. Their treatments are specially developed to suit the purpose of relaxation for body and mind. Combining the best traditions of Ayurveda with Aromatherapy and modern massage techniques they give you a unique experience.
I chose to go for Marma Spa, a signature 90 mins treatment for Body mind and spirit. This exotic and highly therapeutic, Ayurveda inspired massage with aromatic herbal oil stimulates the Marmas, the body’s vital pressure points. This full body massage begins with the balancing of the head’s Marmas followed by the body’s points massaged by the therapist’s feet and then by hand with long sweeping strokes. The treatment concludes with a healing, herbal body mask followed by a warm shower leaving you in a state of bliss.
I love the concept of Staycation, its like a mini vacation in this fast passed world for a much needed time for your self, to enjoy your meals in peace, read that long pending book, spend morning poolside and pamper yourself to the core. so dont wait up for a vacation book up and enjoy your Staycation right in Hyderbad.
