Moving beyond exploration, Indore, has not only, changed in the past two years, but also, emerged as a much “Smarter” city. As a matter of fact, Indore’s philosophical imperative with promising frameworks enables an unusually broad cultural network across the communities. Even though, cleanliness qualifies as Indur’s greatest luxury! It’s the upscale properties like Radisson Blu Indore, that set the mood right with sophisticated ambience in the heart of the city. Right from the airport pickup in a big-spacious BMW 3 Series GT 320d Luxury Line, to a traditional welcome upon arrival, Radisson certainly, is delivering exceptional experiences.
The Creative Kitchen
After a prompt check-in, I set out to have lunch at TCK, Radisson’s all-day diner. The Creative Kitchen is firing on all cylinders these days with an all-new, “available throughout the day,” dining menu. All-Day dining has been 2017’s breakout trend, with best-of-best restaurants embracing innovation and luxury.
Pushing far beyond its early foraged buffet, TCK, now starts its lunch, with speciality items. My savoury noon began, with Crispy Jumbo Prawns with Sriracha Mayo, Bhatti ka Murgh, California Grapes Paneer, Ghost Ki Shammi, followed by a variety of Indian and Continental courses, ending in finger-licking good desserts. Trust the Chef’s to make it all delicious, as well as, get the World’s most engaging service. In addition, TCK’s refreshingly piquant “Cloudy Aquarius” Mocktail was a surefire ‘delicious’ way to hydrate the lunch. I may have cheated on, with a Shrimp Bloody Mary, but oh my god, the crushed olives and cucumber in there, were out of the world.
Radisson Blu, Executive Suite
Whether indulging in rich meals or late night snacking, Radisson Indore’s Suites have plenty of space for you to move around and stay healthy. Radisson Blu has beautifully curated right food menu, to keep you healthy, while, maximizing in-room fitness walking. Lavishly-appointed Executive Suites, in particular, offer separate living and sleeping areas to please even the most demanding guests. Did I enjoy my in-room powder room, rain shower with steam, whirlpool tub, king-size bed, and a pillow menu? (in addition to the usual perks like a flat-screen TV, minibar, and an entertainment system) Absolutely Yes!
Moreover, what I appreciate most about Radisson Blu’s Executive Suites, is that they instantly transform work into pleasure. (By blending the extravagant décor with panoramic city views) For those who like to host their guests outside the suite space, can either use the meeting room for 2 hours or take advantage of the complimentary snacks along with, house drinks at the Lobby Bar.
Radisson Indore Banquets
Indore, is amongst the finest luxury wedding destinations, in Madhya Pradesh. Whether hosting a traditional marriage or a modern business convention, choosing the right venue is hugely important. Which by the way, means choosing the right lighting!

Each one of the Radisson Blu Indore’s Ballrooms evinces high ceiling vintage designs and ornate chandeliers. After all, this is where, either the most influential people get married, or convene to make life-changing decisions.
Sky Spa & Salon
Want to de-stress after a long day at work? Check out, Radisson Blu Indore’s Sky Spa & Salon, featuring the finest selection of organic ingredients. The 120-minute Chocolate Scrub and Wrap is a stand out in particular! I love being wrapped in a foil, which makes me look and feel like a giant Ferrero Rocher. Besides, I can’t tell you how nourished and vigorous I felt after 2 hours of chocolate hydration therapy.
Indulging in a Sky Spa’s revitalising, signature therapy (in the comfort of exemplary services and amenities) is a pure body retreat. From hot stone to anti-ageing, there’s a whole range of holistic and detoxing therapies waiting to be discovered.

Ni Hao, Radisson Blu Indore
Each year, my Chinese food cravings cross the chasm, as Chinese New Year begin to make headlines, in the print media. Baffling me with, where to eat and what to try. Luckily for me, the authentic Chinese flavours at “Ni Hao” turned out to be nothing short of a Chinese New Year feast. Looks like, after all, we can have dinkum Chinese outside China. In fact, at Ni Hao, Executive Sous Chef Siddharth, commands the ancient gastronomy of China wing. Everything I tasted on this particular night, was by far, the most flavoursome Chinese I have ever had.
Ni Hao is a pilgrimage for those who relish Asian flavours. A Chinese hotbed of Indore enveloped, in authenticity and a spectrum of creative dishes. I particularly enjoyed the contemporary twist on Prawn Siumai, Hoisin Duck Spring roll, Smoked Salmon Sushi, and Oriental Lamb Dimsum. The impressive array of sophisticated hot pots, sushi platters, and Shanghai delicacies will blow your mind.
Night View from Suite
Staying in the Executive Suite, of Radisson Blu Indore, is like taking a trip, to one-of-the Instagram-worthy European destinations. As a matter of fact, the first glance at the Suite interiors is enough to make you nostalgic about Switzerland! Sheathed wood walls and flooring, chocolate hors-d’oeuvre, cheese, wine, and an in-room whirlpool bathtub to soak all your troubles.
Radisson’s Executive Suites are invariably at its most stylish, boasting some of the most glamorous amenities. (Most of which are remote or button controlled) That, along with, a clear view of bed and city lights through en-suite washroom sliders. For once, romance yourself, by sipping a glass of Wine, while you take a dip in the whirlpool tub, whilst luxuriating in the company of phenomenal city lights.
The first glimpse of Indiya Oye, revokes an earthy vibe, with its traditional setup, Live music, and royal recipes. Soon after, the vibrant decor and rustic bar cage, begin to take over. By all means, Radisson’s brainchild, Indiya Oye, is putting bygone Indian Royal recipes, to test. From Murgh Sweta, Kundan Kaliyan, Murgh Patiala, Triveni Khumb Ki Gujiya, to Bhuna Gosht Ka Sev, each dish revived a feast of Royal flavours. Could I say, more luxurious than that of a King’s invite? Yes! Executive Chef Mukul Jha could certainly work that out for you.
Above everything, Indiya Oye’s menu flaunts a lavish history. On your lucky day, the Sous Chef will swing by, to share the original story. On other days, you will be too wonder-struck by food and the creative cocktails, to find it out yourself.
Morning View from Suite
It’s splendid to wake up to a scenic view after a Good Night sleep, on a deluxe mattress. Besides, I am a morning person! That being the case, the morning view from Radisson’s Executive Suite changed everything I thought I knew about Indore. Watching Sunrise, while, reading newspaper, is exactly how I like to start my day. Although, Indore gave me much more to admire, from fog-laden mountains at a distance, to quiet ground traffic beneath. Draw the curtains and you will notice a whole new world, out there. If lazy, order breakfast in bed, if not, take a trip to TCK to taste a wide variety of breakfast items.
Breakfast at TCK, not Tiffany’s is how it all happened! I walked into “The Creative Kitchen,” playing my usual Hepburn socialite role. TCK is an aesthetically, rich venue blessed with plenty of natural sunlight. Which makes this venue one of my favourites in Indore. Even though, it’s the quality of food on display, is what makes me want to come back again and again.
A nutrient-packed breakfast gives your mind and body, the boost it needs. I strolled through piping hot European, American, and Indian delicacies before getting a taste of the handpicked chef specials. A breakfast, nothing less than a feast! Do explore their outdoor seating area if you get a chance.
Continental Lunch at TCK, Radisson Blu Indore
The continental lunch at TCK is love served on a plate. From the A La Carte menu, the very palatable Wild Mushroom and Porcini Cappuccino, NZ Herb crusted Lam Rack with Truffle and Parmesan Mash, and Wild Berry Philadelphia Cheese Cake with Saffron and Vanilla Sauce, stole the spotlight.
Continental cuisine is all about the Mediterranean and French flavours. Hence, you will find a lot of olive oil, wine, herbs and spice-infused dishes on the menu. (Each with its own taste) Hailing as the best restaurant in Indore, this upscale establishment focuses on European and International favourites.
Ever since 2010, Radisson Blu Indore has been one-of-the-most sophisticated accommodations in the city. Located 20-minute drive from the airport, Indore Radisson is power-packed with complimentary Wi-Fi, state-of-the-art technology, professional meeting space, rooftop pool, spa, and salon.
