Being a passionate globetrotter keeps you firmly stationed on the gateway to new experiences. I love exploring new places, meeting people from varied walks of life, and living the hippie way. But every now and then, I crave a luxuriant travel experience where everything is larger than life and uber-comfy. Staying at The Roseate, Delhi was an exercise in exactly such decadence and one of my most memorable hotel stays of all time.
The Roseate, Delhi, is an exclusive urban-resort that combines the pleasures of world-class luxury with peaceful seclusion and tranquillity. It is a royal retreat, bang in the middle of India’s busiest cities; it is cloistered by greenery and acres of rich landscaping, yet close enough to the popular malls and posh places-to-be. It serves as the perfect getaway for city-dwellers and a taste of Delhi’s regal hospitality to visitors.
Personally, I enjoyed the calm quietude of the resort the most. It really helped me destress since I was sheltered from the noise, hustle and bustle of urban life. The ambience of The Roseate complements its thematic inclination to subdued, languid luxury. The façade and foyer are stunning with tasteful décor and a beautiful piano lounge. There are numerous lawns and open spaces surrounding the main complex where you can relax and unwind. The in-house spa and restaurant enjoy a wonderful reputation for their premium service. But my favourite of all its facilities is its huge pool which is touted as being one of largest of all Delhi hotels. There’s also a well-equipped water-front gym where I enjoyed some great workouts, admiring the view around me from the sizable glass building.
However, I truly believe that at a hotel, the facilities are not as important as the rooms. And in this aspect, The Roseate leaves no room for critique. The rooms are large and spacey, known to be amongst the largest hotel accommodations in the city. They have iPad-controlled fitments and pristine luxury linen. Some rooms also have a private pool deck and the steam area within the room. And the bathrooms are mini-spas themselves with lovely toiletries, double his and hers bathroom features, and awesome bathtubs as well. If you’re looking to unwind after a hectic stint at work or home, even a day in a room at The Roseate is enough to refresh you.
During my stay, I noticed that the beautiful hotel exterior is quite the magnet for wedding parties and photo shoots. In fact, many magazine photo shoots are scheduled here in the spring season when the natural beauty is in finest form. But honestly, I feel that the charm of The Roseate cannot be described in words. From the picturesque ambience and the luxurious rooms to the courteous staff and impeccable service, you have to live it to believe it. And I’ve had the pleasure of staying here several times. What about you? Are you eager to partake in its luxuriance too?
