Do you know heaven exists on Earth?
Oh, yes, you might be thinking this girl has lost her mind and probably needs a psychiatric treatment.
But No, I have actually experienced what I am talking about.
It was one lovely weekend in March - 15th to 16th 2014 where I had got an opportunity to live life "Queen size". A perfect weekend getaway at THE LEELA HOTEL, MUMBAI.
I checked in the hotel on 15th March'14 Saturday at 1.30 noon whereas the check in time was 2 p.m noon but that wasn't a problem at all because the staff was so sweet. As soon as I saw the pretty hotel, I fell in love, without entering in I could feel what it is, yes, that tinkling feeling in the stomach.
The beautifully created hotel is a delight to the eyes, and pleasure to the soul. With a pool, gym, spa, gardens and tight security - You feel at home always!
As mom and me entered in, Miss Akanksha from The Leela welcomed us in with a small aarti, garland and coconut drink to freshen us up!
Then we were guided to our ROOM no. "811" which truly gave meaning to the word, "King Size Deluxe", As soon as the door opened to the view of the room, I was transported to a different place where there is no stress. It had everything in it and yes a Jacuzzi too, Oh my lovely bathing time! :)
We relaxed for some time and then went out to stroll in the beautiful arena!
We came back at night around 11 p.m and what was waiting in the room was a "Welcome" message carved on desserts. Oh my, to see them, fall in love, save or eat -Confusion! So, I decided to click a picture and gulp in in! ;)
And then, we went to a sinful indulgence at the buffet dinner at Citrus - The all day dining restaurant in The Leela. From chicken, pork sausages to homely dal - rice, it had everything to suit each person's taste buds. Spoiled by choice would be so apt! :)
It's never night at paradise, Is it? So, we decided to walk around in the beautiful place and see the complete hotel, clicked some pictures as memories live on forever and then came back to our room at 1.am to catch up on some sleep in our cozily made up bed! :)
And before to checkout at Sunday noon, it was time was yummy mouth watering breakfast at Citrus, It has Egg Omelet, Tea, Stuffed tomato's and what not!
Some pool time and sun bathing!
*ALL GOOD THINGS COME TO AN END*
Sigh! So did the time at The Leela, Mumbai.
We checked out but the memories, pampering and amazing hospitality shall forever stay in out hearts forever!
I Conclude by A BIG THANK YOU TO THE TEAM LEELA HOTEL, MUMBAI and LUXPRESSO for giving me this blissful opportunity. Had the time of my life. Look forward to be there again soon, till then you have made my life!
