About a 90-minute drive from New Delhi, this restful retreat is a popular weekend escape thanks to its stellar amenities and proximity to Damdama Lake for boating and adventure sports. Set on 20 leafy acres, the hotel features bold, contemporary artwork, midcentury-style furniture and gigantic floor-to-ceiling windows. The 78 rooms and suites are done in a soothing green and taupe color scheme, with polished woods and black lacquered furniture, and all feature generous private decks or balconies. The contemporary bathrooms come with egg-shaped washbasins, gray slate walls and glass cubicle rain showers. Enjoy sweeping garden views and an international menu at Buzz, or dine on modern Chinese fare in Sian’s intimate, softly lit dining room. Try a relaxing ayurvedic massage at the state-of-the-art spa or relax with a glass of bubbly at the space age cocktail lounge, Swirl.
In the Area
Damdama Lake is a playground for Delhi’s jet set. Weekenders chase adrenaline highs with adventure sports like parasailing, bungee jumping and hot air ballooning; or you can simply bask in the sun on the lake’s grassy banks. For a health boost, ask your concierge about planning a trip to the natural hot springs in the nearby town of Sohna. The sulphurous waters are said to have mystical and medicinal qualities, especially during a solar or lunar eclipse. There are loads of shopping options nearby, too; for high-quality saris, carpets and baskets, make a beeline for Surajkund Crafts Mela. Some of the region’s finest craftsmen come here to sell their wares.
How to Get There
We booked their Superior resort room with staycation offer where breakfast and one major meal was included. It's a lovely option for weekend getaway from Delhi/ NCR. Resort offers various activities to do. My 3 year old son enjoyed horse riding. Breakfast and dinner both were really good. For lunch we ordered from room service, price of which we found value for money. All in all beautiful resort with world-class service.
This is the Weekend resort in NCR vicinity. Picturesque property. HUge rooms, excellent pool.
PLus its a Taj Property , so they treat you like a King. I went their on my anniversary and we were so happy to be there. I am really waiting to go their again.
Only one down point: Size of the bathroom exceeds the room size of any regular hotel but they Need to Add a bathtub in their bathrooms, as i feel this property is all about relaxation.
