The Park Hotel In Bangalore Is What Staycation Goals Looks Like
You know you are going to really have to make a play at this entire adulting game when friends have grown up with have moved to new cities and you actually make plans to visit them in the city that they are working in. Just like that, time flew between asking permissions for sleepover to planning staycations in your bestie’s city.
And recently, after months of planning a trip, I finally decided to go meet my BFF in Bangalore, where she is working as, what i call, a corporate slave. With her schedule, she needed the staycation, and I wanted her time. We got both!
After hours of research, we zeroed on The Park, Bangalore. The luxury boutique hotel seemed like the perfect way to stay in the city while being on vacay.
Located in the bustling area of MG road, the hotel has enough and more amenities to make you feel like a royal. What caught our attention were the three starkly different restaurants. We’ll admit, we were particularly drawn to Monsoon, their Pan Asian restaurant that had an amazing Thai fest on. That’s not say that we didn’t spend crazy amounts of time at i-Bar, knocking back cocktails without a worry in the world. Yup, the night is a happy blur but the aftermath was a pain. But you gain some, you lose some, yeah?
It even has an Italian restaurant that satisfied our sudden urge to hog on cheesy pasta for breakfast. Quite unhealthy way to start the day but what a meal! I still salivate at the thought of it.
Post satiating our cheesy cravings, we were set up a temporary home at pool side lounge, Aqua. We took one too many pictures for Instagram.
Of course, since were were going all out, we headed to the in-house spa, Aura. I want to give you a detailed review of what it was like but I was fast asleep 3 minutes into the relaxing massage, so, yeah, it was good is all I am going to say.
There’s something about hotel rooms and fluffy beds. We stayed at one of the 7 different styled suites. I slept like a log. Or maybe, it was cocktails from i-bar.
If you’re looking to get away without having to travel, this is the place to do it. Go for a swim, gossip away in your gorgeous room, click Instagram-worthy pictures, and give your mind the much needed rest at this property that literally has it all.
