A MUST STAY IN THE “QUEEN OF HILLS”

Sterling Mussoorie Resort is located 2.5 km from the Mussoorie town, a patch of hillside land is combed by 300 steps that connect various parts of the 5-acre Sterling Holidays resort, Sterling Mussoorie. Most rooms overlook the alluring Doon valley.

THE ROOM

Once I opened the door I was impressed by many characteristics in the room including the tea and coffee station, the gorgeous ROOM VIEW, the balcony and the modern charging point near the desk. It was definitely a warm welcome with a box of fruit on the  room table. Throughout the stay, the service was on point. Every time they cleaned or did turn-down service, they went the extra mile to make sure everything was flawless.

After spending some time in the room, it was nice to explore the grounds. The property offers lots of facilities including a gaming zone, a medium-size gym and of course, a spa. I enjoyed the massage so much and  I’d definitely recommend you to go out of your way to have a massage at the  Sterling holidays resort

The resort has many activities, some are complementary and some are for an additional fee. I did like that they had free to use cycles. The property also offers a free shuttle bus to the mall road. One of the days there we zip lining . It was beautiful but rained in the middle of the day!

THE WOODSTOCK RESTAURANT

The Woodstock Restaurant is open from 7 am-11 pm offers a variety of cuisines including Indian, Chinese, Continental, and South Indian. The restaurant is where you’ll find the incredible buffet breakfast. I ate sever meals there and was satisfied with all! They really hit a home run with the quality of the food and the taste far exceeded my expectations. To top it off, all of the staff were incredibly kind and accommodating. I was quite impressed in the fact that they curated Garhwali thali for us on the last day. They really want to make sure you’ll have a good vacation. Wink. Overall, the food at the property was very enjoyable. Well done

 

Sterling holidays offers a really tranquil experience. I think it’s always nice to have a lovely place to return to after exploring the outdoors. Not only does this property have fantastic facilities, great activity options and good service, but also a lovely food. It will take a little effort to get there, but I promise it’s worth it! Mussoorie is definitely a bucket list destination and I’m quite certain that the Sterling Holidays  is the best place to stay while visiting!

A Weekend of Luxury at REGENTA LP VILAS

 

At the beggining of this month we were invited to experience 24 hours in Dehradun with a handful of fellow travel and lifestyle bloggers. As part of this trip we were lucky enough to enjoy a night’s stay at REGENTA LP VILAS, one of the leading 5* hotels in Dehradun. Never one to turn down the chance to enjoy a little bit of luxury, we were excited to see what Regenta Lp Vilas had to offer.

THE ROOM

We always love the moment we swipe keycard into a new hotel room. It always comes with a combination of excitement and suspense, and Regenta Lp Vilas didn’t disappoint. Our room was hugely spacious and felt much more special than a standard hotel room.

 

The suite had all the luxury amenities you would expect from a 5 star hotel, and much more! A espresso machine, a fruit bowl, chocolates, fluffy white robes all added to the hotel experience.

The bathroom was readily stocked with luxury lotions and potions, meaning short-breakers can leave all the heavy toiletries behind such as shampoo and conditioner – hooray!

ZAFRAAN

This multi-cuisine restaurant offers a great buffet spread at Rs 699+Taxes and an a-la-carte menu. We loved the pasta from the live counter and some fresh chaat.
For mains, we ordered butter chicken and jeera rice which were equally fantastic. For desserts we had a halwa platter with five varieties of halwa, our favourite being plain suji halwa. We also tried a chocolate compote and some freshly baked chocolate brownie, which is completely a sinful indulgence. Overall, the starters and desserts here are quite impressive and value for money. The restaurant can host upto 100-120 people easily and has some well lit interiors. It makes a perfect place to dine-in for celebrations, business meetings or any casual affair.

THE VERDICT

Our stay at Regenta LP Vilas was an absolute delight from start to finish. We enjoyed decadent food, plush surroundings and fantastic service. Along with some very thoughtful extras, all these things made the whole trip very memorable. The friendly staff cannot do more to make you feel welcome If you are thinking of booking a luxurious short break in Dehradun, we would recommend Regenta LP Vilas in a heartbeat.

We stayed in the resort’s nicest room, a large suite with a living area, bedroom, large bathroom .Equipped with a king size bed, large tub, and mini bar we actually enjoyed spending time in our room as much as we did out of it.

We’re happy to report the suite came with reliable and fast internet , and 2 large LCD TV’s, there’s no shortage of entertainment in the room.

Early in the morning we went around the property and came back to our rooms to two trays filled with delicious breakfast items ! To say we were excited is an understatement. After clicking a 100 pictures and Snapchatting to our heart’s content, we finally dug in.

We ate a lot of our meals at COSMO, which is the multi-cuisine restaurant that offers all day dining. We got to enjoy their Asian (highly recommend the tandoori dim sums!), continental and Indian food, and we even had the chance to interact with their head chef, who recommended some of the most mouth watering dishes!

 

For those who have got a sweet tooth, the hotel also has a bakery with an array of options like brownies, pastries, cakes and much more.
