Moving beyond exploration, Indore, has not only, changed in the past few years, but has also, emerged as a much “Smarter” city. As, a matter of fact, Indore’s philosophical imperative with promising frameworks enable an unusually ‘broad’ cultural network across the communities. And after topping the Swacch Bharat Abhiyaan, cleanliness qualifies as Indur’s greatest luxury! Besides, upscale properties like Radisson Blu Indore set the mood right with sophisticated ambiance in the heart of the city. Right from the airport pickup organized in a BMW 3 Series GT 320d luxury line, to a traditional welcome upon arrival, Radisson appears focused on upgrading your lifestyle.
After a prompt check-in, we set out to have lunch at TCK, Radisson’s all-day kitchen. The Creative Kitchen features both a grand buffet and an Ala Carte menu. However, what’s new here is the ‘available throughout the day’ menu. All-Day dining has been 2017’s breakout trend, with best-of-best restaurants embracing innovation and luxury. And Radisson Blu sure seems to be in alignment with the modern culinary trends.
Pushing far beyond its early foraged buffet, TCK, now starts its lunch, with specialty items. Our savory-noon revolved around Crispy Jumbo Prawns in Sriracha Mayo, Bhatti ka Murgh, California Grapes Paneer, Ghost Ki Shammi, followed by a variety of Indian and Continental courses, and finger-licking good desserts. The chefs do it right and pair it with city’s most engaging service. What piqued our interest most, was the TCK’s refreshingly piquant “Cloudy Aquarius” Mocktail and the Shrimp Bloody Mary’s, with crushed olives and cucumber.
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. The 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!
Besides, what we appreciate most about Radisson Blu’s Executive Suites, is that they instantly transform work into pleasure by blending 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.
To de-stress after a long day at work, we resorted to Radisson Blu Indore’s Sky Spa & Salon featuring the finest selection of ‘organic’ therapies. The 120-minute Chocolate Scrub and Wrap is a stand out in particular! We enjoyed being wrapped in a foil, to feel like a giant kit kat. Beyond a fancy name, the treatment does hydrate and leave your skin far more nourished. What can we say, except for a whole new range of holistic and detoxing therapies are waiting to be unearthed? Add to that steam, rain shower, soul music, and lavishly enfolded rejuvenation.
For dinner, we decided to explore the Oriental restaurant of the Radisson, which goes by the name Ni Hao. This specialty restaurant surprised us with dinkum Chinese outside China. At Ni Hao, Executive Sous Chef Siddharth, commands the ancient gastronomy of China wing. Everything we tasted on this particular night, showed us why this restaurant is a must-visit for those who love Asian flavors. To make our dinner special, this Chinese hotbed of Indore presented a spectrum of creative dishes from Prawn Siumai, Hoisin Duck Spring roll, Smoked Salmon Sushi, to Oriental Lamb Dimsum. The impressive array of sophisticated hot pots, sushi platters, and Shanghai delicacies blew our mind.
Staying in the Executive Suite, of Radisson Blu Indore, is like taking a trip, to one-of-the Instagram-worthy European destinations. The interiors evoked a sweet nostalgia with its sheathed wood walls, flooring, chocolate hors-d’oeuvre, cheese, wine, and an in-room whirlpool bathtub to immerse in. Invariably stylish, boasting some of the most glamorous remote controlled amenities. That, along with, a clear view of bed and city lights through en-suite washroom sliders. For once, allowing you to romance the city whilst, luxuriating in the company of phenomenal city lights.
It’s splendid to wake up to a scenic view after a restful good night sleep. Watching the sunrise from Radisson’s Executive Suite changed everything we thought we knew about Indore. 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.
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. If wellness, service, healthy food, and comfortable stay is your priority, then this upscale property should be your next stop.
