Stretching out lackadaisically at Koregaon Park Annex is the latest luxe collection of Marriott International. A sprawling property featuring exclusive access to modern amenities to maximize your stay in the heart of Pune. When I first arrived at Marriott Suites Pune, I was instantly consumed by its horizontally layered design. More so, because it’s located in a quiet locality and cloaked in the rich biodiversity of lush plantations. The security at the entrance gate thoroughly checks the vehicle as a lot of high profile guests stay at this property. But one special security guard here, is Leather, a friendly golden retriever who sniffs the vehicle for any dangerous items that may be there.
Once you pass the security, the car enters the premises and shortly, you will find yourself walking into a striking lobby. This Marriott Suites Lobby casts off an outstanding first impression with its one-of-a-kind decor and chandeliers. Weaved in the shades of champagne and chocolate-cinnamon, Marriott Suites lobby impressed me with its centre stage of lavishly appointed elements.
Whether it be, the aesthetic-heritage of the leaf wall art, the Savannah sofa or the designer ceilings graced with a crystal chandelier. Each element is an inviting retreat for the eyes. The finest-flooring with an art imprint doesn’t go unnoticed either. Marriott Suites Pune is exclusively an all-suite property. Even though I were eyeing the Garden Suite, at first, its unavailability made me go for the Studio suite. My suite was located on the top floor of the 5th complex. When I first walked into this studio suite, its uber-stylish design with an attached balcony piqued my interest spontaneously.
The balcony, in particular, is a timeless portal to a fresh breeze. Suite, on the other hand, is a comfortable home away from home. It is well equipped with amenities such as mini-bar, iPod docking station, DVD player, an in-room washer/dryer and a kitchenette with refrigerator, oven, dishwasher, and microwave. The extended kitchen appliances and a collection of high-end gizmos are just perfect for long term guests.
The soundproof windows and deluxe bedding ensure a restful sleep after a long progressive day. Wherein the ensuite washrooms are fitted with luxe marble tiles. In the washroom, you will find premium Inara toiletries, essential dental kit, and requisite washroom apparatus to facilitate comfort at par.
Mariott Suites Pune is also, a pet-friendly property which means your furry friends can accompany you all along. Asserting good times for the entire family! I think for me, that defines the ultimate luxury! On my first day of the stay at Marriott Suites Pune, I had dinner at Senses, one of the in-house restaurants. The restaurant was hosting a Bengali festival at the time. However, despite being informed of my arrival, the kitchen took long hours to confirm the invite with the Executive Chef. Next day, I had lunch at Sorriso, the Italian restaurant. You may read about my dining experience here.
Next day, I ordered an American breakfast in the room after a quick morning workout. Marriott Suites Pune facilitates cardiovascular equipment 24 hours, seven days a week. (Along with complimentary fitness classes) My breakfast arrived after 30-minutes with eggs of my choice, bakers basket, sauteed mushrooms, sliced fresh fruits, and a glass of refreshing watermelon juice. The Chefs forgot the bacon though!
At around 11 AM, I took a quick swim in the outdoor pool. Surrounded by tall trees, this pool propels you into the beauty of natural blue waters. All along, my swim, gentle wind and myriad bird sounds, kept me company. For those who have kids, may want to explore the play area for the kids. This area is a pool of endless joy with tiny little smiling faces. Let’s just conclude that Marriott Suites Pune is a wonder-box of recreational opportunities for both kids and adults.
Everyone deserves a little TLC. So, on the second day of my stay, I decided to get myself pampered at Sakura Spa, the relaxation abode of Marriott Suites Pune. Not only, do they have a lavish Thalgo menu featuring essential body treatments, but also, professionals who incorporate traditional massage methods to work on your overall wellness. Whether tired from a long commute or a stressful day at work, unwinding at this luxurious Spa is indeed your best therapy bet in Pune.
