Located in Gurgaon, it is a 10 miles’ kingdom like property for everyone who wishes to stay in solace and enjoy the genuine beauty of nature amidst the city’s hustle and bustle.
This beautiful place is just where nature meets luxury. We had a great time staying in the villa and get to explore the resort to the fullest. It is a lavish resort in Gurgaon and a treat to be there. For me, the best part of Karma Lakelands is a huge golf course. They have a 9-hole golf course with 18-hole experience with around over 200, 000 trees. This is spectacular and super soothing.
Their golf course has received an award of Eco-friendly golf course in 2016 for Golf digest. Area of the campus is approximately 300 acres and the one fact which amazed me a lot is that nearly 60% of ingredients are organic and sourced from our organic nursery. Isn’t this just splendid?
Our was a fantastic stay, and here’s what we have experienced at karma Lakelands:
We got villa 49, which is one of the best architecturally designed and built villas at Karma Lakelands. The view of the room is green and full of nature. You can spot a Neelcow and go fishes in the man-made lake near to the villa. If you also looking to unwind and rejuvenate yourself, then there is a mediation centre by Isha Foundation.
Ensuring hospitality and services par excellence, Karma Lakelands takes great pride in maintaining the highest standards of cleanliness and hygiene. Their environment-friendly farm-to-table model of having & preparing food is in sync with the healthy food revolution around the world. “Real farm-to-table cooking requires us to consider ingredients first, and recipes second,” says our Executive Chef Jayanandan, who along with his team is committed continuously to enhance the overall experience for guests.
So they welcome you to the restaurant where you can expect atmospheric elements that inspire and cultivate a healthy relationship between the dining table and our planet.

Our food was from their restaurant OnKourse. Their best is Veg Thai curry, Mutton soup, Tom yam salad, Prawns dish, Thai curry veg.
Apart from this the setup and interiors is soothing for anyone to enjoy the delicacies to its fullest. Not only Indian, you get Italian, Mexican and other continental dishes. Not to miss is the Klub Karma. An array of dishes can be enjoyed with drinks. The AK’s bar is ravishing and a great place to chill.
Our villa had an indoor pool and Jacuzzi. They have 5 architecturally varied villas with all distinct designs of each. All the villas offer stunning views and rich nature walks. You experience a glimpse of eco-responsible living without compromising on style and comfort. What you get are terrace villa, pavilion villa, courtyard villa, portico villa and atrium villa. All the five villas are decked lavishly with amenities that you would not like to miss.
Adding more charm to the property they have luxury tents. Check the images below and you would understand what I’m trying to say. These luxury tents have everything you need for your perfect stay. Comfortable beds, air conditioners, suitable and spacious bathrooms and all the view you need.
Pizza bay is one place to relax and munch at the same time. It is open in the evenings for you to enjoy the fresh breeze. For all the pizza lovers, this is the place to hang out.
Last but not the least, the fantastic part of Karma Lakelands is organic farming and sustainable living which they are prompting by their property. In fact, one can learn about organic farming as well. They are using these organic products like vegetables in their cooking too.
Thanks to the entire team of Karma Lakelands for a wonderful staycation. Our gratitude to your staff who has to arrange a cake for our friend’s birthday. The cake made by the chef was scrumptious. Special mention to the butler Amin and Vikas, they were supportive and brilliantly helpful in decorating the room. The whole staff and management was friendly and warm hearted. Do visit it once, you would revisit again.
When it comes to chic décor and stunning amenities with state-of-the-art architecture, what can beat a staycation at one of the prestigious hotel chains worldwide. Yes, I’m talking about Le Meridien Delhi, India. Originally headquartered in France and the United Kingdom, Marriott now owns the chain.
So what this small blog all about.
I got an opportunity to have a luxurious staycation at Le Meridien during the COIVD times. Yes, do not worry folks, it was all safe and we are safe. A home away from away experience we witness for 2 nights and 3 days at Le Meridien hotel Delhi.
They offer a variety of selective villas and suites as per your taste. Our team was lucky to have the best of the rooms out here. For sure this property is for people who love to enjoy finer things in life while travelling.
I had a short stay, but was fulfilling. When we all are facing tough times because of the pandemic, getting this one was bliss for our team. Needless to mention that the entire staff was well prepared about all the safety measures as per the Government guidelines. Apart from this, the team ensured to maintain social distancing and hygiene in all perspectives. They also comply with the food standards and new food safety guidelines of FSSAI.
The time from the arrival until we checked out everything was in place and this is not just to write a blog for. I mean it. They were all prepared. Right from the arrival where our luggage was to be sanitized, and we needed to go through thermal temperature scanning, to our mobile check-in, all guest service delivery standards are as per the new normal was taken care of.
The rooms are minimalistic and are offering a diverse array of new amenities that will include sanitizers, wipes, masks and contactless menus. They have also ensured cleaning all high and low touch points after regular intervals. And are maintaining the highest standard of hygiene and safety in their restaurants, where one now order from their device and pay electronically.
Our staycation package was an ideal one and allowed us to have a much-needed retreat from the monotonous routine. What else you would ask for in COVID times? They are also offering 50% off on kids’ room. Overall, it can be the best choice for your family and friends to hang out for a short period or maybe for a longer duration. The packages are quite satisfying inclusive all the major amenities for a luxury hotel to endure.

The proximity of this hotel has views of Rashtrapati Bhawan and parliament especially from the Executive rooms that are on the 16th Floor. These rooms had in-house bathtub and other luxurious amenities in the bathroom.
We had one Presidential suite, which was superfluously spacious and modern interiors. The interiors are subtle and soothing to your mood.
There are 3 bathrooms in presidential suite. They are luxurious with stunning bathtubs and ample space to spend good time.
For a foodie like me, I enjoyed almost everything from Mexican to Indian. From Italian to desserts, the food is delicious. Their biryani, dosa, French fries, parathas, pasta, sandwiches were good to taste. We ordered all the food in the room only due to safety measures.
Although we did not find much variety of food due to pandemic but they arranged some mouth-watering food. If you are there, do not miss the Nero Bar that has 3D effect lightings to amaze you and enjoy disco and bar. Longitude is their coffee shop and ONE is their restaurant.
With the epitome of world-class architecture and international amenities, Le Meridien is one of the best staycation five-star hotels for you and your loved ones. So when are you visiting?
Delhi is known for its rich history of kings and empires. With queens, nizams, and the lords Delhi is known for its hospitality and rich culture. Owing to this Delhi’s hotel industry is also one of the flourishing ones in India.
Delhi is blessed to have superbly decorated and lavish hotels. One such is Radisson Blu, which is located near to Delhi airport and endowed with the beautiful and luxurious property.
We took this opportunity to have a staycation at Radisson with our teammates. Our stay was the most comfortable and unique in its own way. How? During the COVID times, people are scared to move out and as per the government norms and lockdown procedures, the hotels and retreats are not opening. But Radisson Blu is one of the hotels which is operational in Delhi during the pandemic situation.
Thus, with the new normal, our stay in Radisson Blu was of 2 nights and 3 days. We would like to tell you that, the hotel is sufficiently sanitized and disinfected.
At the entrance, we were sanitised and were checked for the temperature. We were fumigated and all the other staff maintained sufficient social distancing.
Apart from this the other forms and formalities were executed by the management to complete the COVID Pandemic guidelines.
We had booked 2 rooms. One Presidential suite & another junior suite. Both the rooms were spacious, lavish and chic in décor and styling. We were welcomed with soothing Mock-tail. The Presidential Suite is very spacious with 2 bathrooms, dining room, pantry and a master bedroom.
The decor of the room is elegant & classy. Also, on asking for housekeeping, they literally sanitised each & every corner of the room. Since it was the birthday weekend of one of our teammate, they even surprised me by decorating my room with balloons & flowers. The staff of the hotel is very polite and welcoming.
On our first night, we had our Dinner from their Restaurant NYC. It’s a multi-cuisine restaurant. Due to COVID situation, Alcohol is not being served in the hotels. We ordered snacks: Galouti kebabs, Mushroom kebabs & Chinese Starters like veg Manchurian, fish, papaya salad & in the main course we ordered from Indian cuisine like Dal Tadka, Paneer Makhni, khichri etc.
Deserts were delicious we ordered Ice cream, Gulab jamun & Ras malai. Food is too delightful, in Radisson Blu. We missed the Kebab Factory. Hope it opens soon.
Next Day, we switched our room to Junior Deluxe Suite. This room is relatively smaller than Presidential Suite, but it’s really nicely done & simple luxurious room. We ordered our breakfast in, with the omelette, milkshake, poori bhaji, South Indian delicacies, coffee etc. we took a property tour & had our Lunch and Dinner at NYC. The food at NYC is mouth-watering.
The main reason for stay Radisson Blu is the food. Staff at the hotel celebrated my birthday at the restaurant too, they were sweet enough to wish me with an amazing cake which we cut together. That was admittedly a very thoughtful gesture. Although Gym & Spa were shut due to COVID 19.

There is a piece in me that like to tenderly imagine my maverick and seditious soul. But, precisely, I love to have a picky and cosy relationship with my soul that can rub up against a little bit, putting me alive.
