A few of us bloggers were invited to be a part of the launch of the hotel in mysuru. This post is an attempt to take your through the beauty and offerings of the hotel though my lens.
The warmth of the hotel staff can be felt the moment one steps in – the traditional royal mysuru welcome sets the tone for everything that follows after.
In this beautiful business hotel, the guests can enjoy and experience the strong local connection of Mysuru and Karnataka’s culture and heritage.
The vibrant interior décor gives one a taste of the celebrated Royalty of Mysuru in a whole new contemporary way. The chandeliers on display exude a holistic and soulful concept of ‘bringing stories to life’ for the hotel. The philosophy of embracing the local culture and traditions is further reflected in the names of the hotel’s exclusive restaurants, delicatessen, meeting rooms and banqueting facilities.
Inspired by Mysuru’s rich culinary legacy, guests can feast on an extensive selection of cuisines at the hotel. La Uppu serves an eclectic mix of global cuisine and local delicacies, is an all-day-dining multi-cuisine restaurant with an option of indoor and al-fresco seating; By the blue, the rooftop specialty restaurant which overlooks the pool, serves Northern Indian cuisine; Silk Bar, by its name narrates the story of the famous silk in Mysuru and serves a mix of single malts, cocktails, mocktails, spirits and wines; and Deli Shop, a delicatessen at the lobby, serves the finest bakery and confectionary creations by talented chefs paired with an array of Indian coffees.
The aesthetically designed and tastefully done up interiors reflects the seemless marriage of traditional art and craft of mysuru with the contemporary. The use of silk saris, mythological artifacts, flowers, b&w and muted tones of vintage photos of historical places against the high contrast vibrant piece of complementing decorative subject – exhibits the thought behind bringing the hotel’s vision to life.
Strategically located, in what could arguably be the best location for a hotel in Mysuru. A hotel that guarantees the best seats for viewing the coveted Dussera procession, without having to the step out of the hotel. A definite clincher for tourists in the festive season.
