How do you make the most of your weekend in the city? The answer is a staycation! A short vacation in the city for all of us who can't make a run for the hills or the beach for just two days!
So, let me tell you how I used #WeekendGoals excessively on Instagram last week. My Sunday began with a gorgeous view of cascading waters on the porch of a hotel. I relaxed listening to the sound of a bartender's shaker and taking in the sweet aroma of freshly baked bread. Around me, couples and families were helping themselves to a carnival-like feast. This was the Sunday brunch at The Westin Gurgaon, New Delhi that my bestie and I treated ourselves to this weekend.
The luxury hotel in the heart of Gurgaon (just 15 minutes from the airport) played the host for our staycation and pampered us silly with their warm hospitality. It's Tuesday and I'm still in their renewal suite, in my head.
I arrived at the property on Saturday with an overnight bag and opened the door to a suite waiting for me with a collection of gourmet treats, a panoramic view of the city and a promise of true relaxation. The staycation started with a tour of the hotel, its restaurants and bars, the WestinWORKOUT Fitness Studio, and the Heavenly Spa. In the evening, I plunged into the outdoor pool and gave my body a workout before the elaborate dinner at the Italian-cuisine restaurant, Prego.
I fell asleep to the whispering sound of a television (with a sheet mask on) on the comfy bed that's a Westin signature. The next morning, a cup of freshly brewed coffee and a 40-minute soothing soak in the bathtub melted out all the stress of the week. And then began a Sunday feast at Seasonal Tastes with an insane amount of food!
I knew I was going to fall head-over-heels for this place when the Executive Chef Deepak Bhatia told me dark chocolate is healthy and a super food. A cheese station, a salad bar, an 'Eat Smart' section, a sushi section followed by Mexican, Indian, Pan-Asian and seafood delicacies, the brunch at Seasonal Tastes - The Westin Gurgaon had more than 150 dishes to choose from!
The FOMO got me big, so I decided to kickstart the brunch with desserts. I tried around 15 different desserts before making my way to the mains and here I am, a happy woman with zero regrets.
You're looking at 35+ food items on this table 🤑 I'm having a major FOMO on the remaining 115+ that I couldn't have 🤤 And you thought you had problems! . . Thanks @westingurgaon for a fattening staycation 🤩 #staycation #weekendgoals #sundaybrunch #foodgasm #foodie
If your table doesn't look like this when you go to the hotel for the brunch, did you even have a brunch? I would definitely go again just for their live music, nachos with fresh salsa, crispy chicken 65, their very own 'Eat Smart' section for some healthy binging and the desserts, oh, the desserts.
