With a lot of buzz around smart cities, it feels like we’re finally entering the future. In the first place, Indore, Bhopal, Ujjain, Gwalior, Sagar, Jabalpur, and Satna have topped Madhya Pradesh’s list of honour among the race of 100 smart cities in India. Wouldn’t it be awesome, to watch one-of-these feature among the top cities of the world? After my recent experience, I could certainly bet all of the riches on the luxurious Indore! Let’s be honest, as of today, we are far behind the rest of the world. And Narendra Modi’s vision, of creating a better India, will require a much-orchestrated framework.
On to the better things, these cities will be the first to experience ever-present connectivity, irrepressible power, lifestyle upgrade, endless employment opportunities and service-friendly interface. Starting with Indore, this city recently topped Swachh Bharat Abhiyan 2017 (Clean India Movement) and is all set to immerse in a smart way of living. Then again, a melting pot of different cultures, Indore is a fascinating blend of royalty and Maratha lifestyle. Thriving to sustain the affluent heritage, Indore, is welcoming Luxury Lifestyle brands with an extensively complementary indulgence.
Profuse Luxuries of the Smart City Indore
Spell Luxury in Indore and Marriott International tops the chart. Well! If Indian Cricket Team chose to move their accommodation from Radisson to Marriott, then we certainly have a winner here. In the race, we have our runner up’s Radisson Blu and Sayagi Hotels which I’m yet to visit and review. (What tells them apart can only be discovered in a matter of time!)
1. Marriott Indore, Indore’s Most Luxurious
Indore Marriott junior suite is apt for a dreamy ‘good-turn’ vacation. While Indore Kitchen, their all-day restaurant serves the best comfort food in the city. For Indorians, who care about wellness, must try the rare variety of Teas at Indore Baking Company, Marriott’s in-house coffee shop. Gourmet seekers, Marriott’s all-day dining space, Indore Kitchen, will play a perfect host to cater your personal and business meetings. In this fast-paced modern world, Marriott International has once again, set the competition straight with its exemplary hospitality. By all means, Devesh Rawat’s (GM) invariable hospitality experience and “never-say-no” attitude is sufficient to make this new venture a great success. Here, have a look, at my experience!
2. Radisson Blu Indore, city’s Most Elegant
The Executive Suite of Radisson Blu Indore is an Elite travellers paradise. Elegantly designed, to make you feel like a celeb, Radisson Blu will also treat you like one at all times. In fact, this over-the-top hotel suite offers amenities including pillow menu, personal butlers, and transportation by luxury line BMW GT. Featuring two speciality restaurants, and one all-day diner, Radisson, takes the food experience a notch higher, with its authentic flavours. Ni Hao is a must-visit, for those who love Asian cuisine with a modern twist. Likewise, Indiya Oye was a pleasant surprise, more so, because it’s showcasing Royal recipes from across the nation. TCK (The Creative Kitchen) was my favourite spot to grab, a lavish breakfast and a scrumptious continental lunch. The Banquets are beautiful, the staff is attentive, engaging, and the GM Rahul Joshi comprehends the need of the market.
