“Getaways are essential… Getaways are the only sanity to this crazy busy
insane world…Getaways are finding yourself amidst the chaos while
relieving fun activities and translating moments into memories” –
Novotel Imagica was a complete package of everything. Fun, Activities , Leisure , Warm Hospitality
and a gastronomical expedition.
My Stay Experience
Novotel was a pleasant surprise and thrilling experience. So let me start with my crazy fun itenary
whilst narrating my experiences and nuances. So we were welcomed with the biggest Hello by Bobo
. Oh who is he? He is the cute big Teddy . Inspite of being an adult who doesn’t like the cute
welcome.And then there was an elaborate welcome with syringe style welcome drinks
Oh then I was headed to the welcome food .. The chef explained us his concept and theory behind
his curation . There were some unique items like red velvet tartelette with goat cheese and green
apple stuffing amidst the jelly pani puri and mozzarella tomatoes puff . And ohYES!!! The chocolate
chip muffin was AMAZE!
Coming to the room , I would describe it as comfy spacious rooms . Take the pool view overlooking
the lush green mountains . Oh did I just forget to mention the Imli and Bloggers note welcome
inside the room.
Then we headed for Martini Lunch at the “Square”. And No I am not kidding , there was every kind
of martini served to you with variety of breads and cheese and then that’s not it . A grilled session
laid in the open lawn where your corns are roasted and cottage cheese is perfectly burnt .And the lunch spread had it all – Continental , Asian and North Indian. Plus the salads and cheese …
And my favorite part is the desserts – From Kiwi tarts to motichoor ladoo to pastries to fresh cream .They had it all .
And not to miss the Chefs special : Chocolate Mousse which was a pure sin
And then we headed for a hotel walkthrough and what caught my eyes was the beautiful
presidential suite , the compact meeting rooms converting into ballrooms and just the vibe and then
we headed onto a fun experience at the snow park – Imagica
And then we headed for a high Tea spread which had all my cravings at one place from chocolates to
cupcakes to mochas to shakes to burgers (yes see me hogging)
We wore our boots and jackets and were kids for sometime . From snowfall to slaying on the slide to
dancing on the beats , it was lot of fun….
Then what happened …… ????? Stay Tuned for Part2
