My Staycation At Radisson Blu Pune Hinjawadi

There comes a time when you are just not in the mood to wander but enjoy a quiet getaway. A well equipped property not too far from home, offers an opportunity to pamper yourself with a perfect staycation. Having heard a lot about the vibrant Hinjewadi district in Pune, staycation at Radisson Blu Pune Hinjawadi seemed perfect! Located near some of the top technology companies of Rajiv Gandhi Infotech Park and only a 2.5 hour drive from Mumbai, the property offers a modern respite with contemporary amenities. Indulge in a gastronomical dining experience at the multiple on-site dining options, unwind  at Nilaya spa, let your hair down at the rooftop restaurant, swim in the welcoming waters of the outdoor pool or indulge in some exercise at the fitness center...the choice is yours!



We reached Radisson Blu Pune Hinjawadi and after checking in to our Business Class room, we settled down with a cup of our favorite masala tea and grilled sandwiches from the in-room dining section.



The service was prompt and between mouthfuls, we started forming a plan for the day. We looked around the room and noticed the facilities - spacious workstation, fully equipped mini bar, stylish floor-to-ceiling windows and a 40-inch Smart LED TV that listed many entertainment channels.

For lunch, we settled down at Café Blu, the all-day dining global-cuisine restaurant which serves a lavish buffet as well as Indian, Western and Asian à la carte favorites. We started with Bhatti Ka Jheenga (tandoor prawns) along with some fresh garden salad.

Next, we tried Lamb chops (served with house made sauce and seasonal veggies) and Kheema Pie (Chef's take on Shepherds Pie made with minced chicken and topped with potato mash). The al-fresco section prompted us to step out and click some pictures, which we could not resist. The Bar Lounge, nestled inside Café Blu is a great place to unwind with a tipple of choice after a long day.

The delicious lunch was followed by a short siesta and we woke up just in time for our spa appointment at Nilaya spa that offers a wide selection of relaxing, healing and ayurveda therapies. Our time at the spa was one of the highlights of the staycation and we left feeling rejuvenated and restored and you can read all about our experience here .

We took a walk around the property and were happy to notice facilities like state-of-the-art gymnasium, business center and a versatile event space in form of more than 7,300 square feet of two-storied, pillar less ballrooms that can be hired for business events. The property also offers bespoke solutions for planning a perfect wedding.

Soon it was time to enjoy a sun downer at the stylish poolside restaurant and bar - Over The Top. The menu at Over The Top features a premium selection of alcoholic, non-alcoholic beverages and light bar eats with rhythmic music for company.

We started with our favorite cocktail - Mojito and we clinked our glasses as the sun went down on a perfect day. We paired our next cocktail - Hinjefication (a delicious blend made with vodka, watermelon, select whole spices and topped with sweet foam) with Caribbean Chicken (boneless chicken pieces marinated with orange-soy sauce and other spices, grilled to perfection) and Bruschetta Ensemble (toasted bread served with a variety of toppings). The main course was another favorite - Spaghetti Bolognese (a very popular Italian dish.

The next was a day of indulgence with the special Easter Brunch that featured a sumptuous spread with choice of vegetarian and non vegetarian soup, salads (we loved the Easter tea egg salad), starters (special mention to steamed mushroom dim sums and highway chicken tikka) and a fabulous main course spread - Citrus marinated roast chicken, Roasted leg of pork, Roast turkey, Spanish vegetable paella and more.

The Live station - Chef's choice of noodles was a great foodie DIY indulgence and the deserts were a do-not-miss!
