Nothing qualifies as a better documentation of good times than a weekend spent in bliss.
With Independence Day around the corner, we urge you to mix pleasure with a pinch of patriotism.
One cannot think well, love well, sleep well or even celebrate well if one hasn’t dined well. Take a cue from that and walk into The Lalit Ashok Bangalore where a feast of epic proportions awaits you this weekend. Strap on the old feedbag as the masterchef whips up a host of delicacies, handpicked from all over India. Enjoy the live music and get buzzed with Indian pride as you go on a gourmet trip round the country.
A tryst with des-tea-ny more like your thing? For those wanting to indulge in a single act of patriotism, we first recommend a tryst at the Tea Lounge at The Lalit Great Eastern Kolkata. This pre-independence era property has hosted some of the greatest leaders of our freedom struggle, including the Father of the Nation, Mahatma Gandhi. Loose leaf teas sourced from the choicest tea gardens turn into sunset-hued cups of perfection. Add a side of creamy scones to the scene and relive an era of grandeur and quiet sophistication. Considering the eclectic bhadralok clientele of this place, don’t be surprised if you come back with an anecdote or two!
If a sweet staycation is on your mind, forget the crowded beachfronts and book yourself a languid seacation at The Lalit Golf Resort & Spa Goa. In addition to a refreshing landscape and more importantly, solitude, this luxurious property allows you an opportunity to brush up your punting skills at the sprawling golf course it is home to. And as you sip on sweet coconut water, while staring into the sea, you can take your pick of which Goan beach to spend the rest of the day on. All the luxuries and a little sand between our toes? Sign us up!
An equally enchanting experience can be found at The Lalit Resort & Spa Bekal. Located in the middle of the lush oasis that Kerala is, sunbathe, sail or sleep in – it’s so quaint and charming, you will forget it’s a total bargain. Thank you off-season!
If you are in the capital and unable to escape the traffic snarls (we do empathize) and parking woes, check into The Lalit New Delhi and watch The Tricolour unfurl gloriously, while being cocooned in the comfort of your room. An indulgent stay at The Lalit Legacy Suite comes with round the clock butler service and access to Rejuve – The Spa in case you crave a deep tissue massage.
This Independence Day, the freedom to choose luxury is in your hand. Visit www.thelalit.com and pick your destination.
