For a Splendid stay like this...

This year too I was having second thoughts about our New Year plan. Like last year, I didn’t want it to get cancel. Making a bigger plan and then settling with not-so-big one sure leaves you empty hearted. And I was in no mood to get all nostalgic about the similar situation this year.

As it is our plans get take shape last moment, this year was no different. I was pretty excited for New Years. Honestly, I wanted to take a trip abroad or maybe go Goa, but then we wouldn’t have our friends’ company. Now let me tell you, my husband and I, most of the times want our friends around us. Isn’t it always great to have your favorite people around, especially on occasions like these? Anyway, it’s always the more, the merrier.

So we decided to celebrate it together with our best friends.

See, if you want to party, the nearest place from Kanpur is Lucknow, but we didn’t want to go there. 

We settled for Delhi and started looking for our stay. As we were already late and given it was New Years time, we were a bit unsure of finding a suitable place.

We travel to places frequently and book our stay according to our budget. But c’mon folks, it was New Years, how could we stay anywhere less than a 5 star? :P ;) Also, as they say, what you do on the first day of the year, you continue to do it the whole year! Now, who would want to risk staying at a regular hotel on New Years? I know, I wouldn’t and given this saying about new years, why not increase your chances this year?

And so, after scouting a couple of hotels and the New Year’s party that they were going to host, we picked The Lalit New Delhi as our choice of accommodation. 

|Don’t you feel a tinge of happiness and a few goose bumps thinking about your stay at a  luxury hotel?

Located in the heart of the city, The Lalit is one of the finest luxury hotels in India. Malls, buzzing cafes, heritage monuments and shopping centers are few things to mention that can be easily reached from here.

As we had made our bookings prior through Makemytrip, checking-in wasn’t a hassle. The deals that you get on Makemytrip, I can bet you wouldn’t find those kinds of deals with any other portal.

So yes, there was a rush and the place was crowded, but the staff was patient enough to help us out. We had to book an extra room last minute and the staff helped us through that process with full courtesy. And guess what? We got an up gradation to the Premiere Luxury room! 

Hell yeah! I was thrilled!

Our room was on the 19th floor and the view it offered was spectacular! The window was large, giving the perfect picturesque for us to relish. The room was spacious and had a bathtub attached in our bathroom.
Isn't it gorgeous?

We had planned our New Year party at Kitty Su, which is a nightclub in the hotel itself. Before the party would start, we decided to take a tour of the same. And man, it was spectacular. The club’s decor was artisan chic, defining the perfect opulence that you would want offering an experience for a lifetime on its exquisite dance floor. No wonder, it’s the only Indian club that is rated amongst the top 100 clubs in the world by DJ Mag.

Sure it was beyond our expectations. The party was wild (in a good way), the DJ was playing excellent music, allowing us to groove and move.  The crowd was good,the food was delicious and the drinks were just fine.

You want to sneak in? Not possible now, but you can have a look at a few pictures below!

Us and our Friends, at the hotel!

Next day began with the sumptuous breakfast, serving the most eclectic assortments of cuisines. You name it and you got it. What took away my fancy was the delectable chocolate sauce which was served with the waffles. Something was different about it, so much so that I wouldn't stop craving it. On January 1, 2017, after coming out of our hangover we reached for the breakfast and were obviously, late. Breakfast was almost going to get pack up and there I was, still craving for the chocolate sauce, which was finished by then. We requested the staff and see this is what he got for us and made our day!

Finger licking good, isn't it?

What caught my sight while taking a tour of the hotel was the sprawling swimming pool. Isn’t it a beauty? (see in the picture above). My favorites were the lounge chairs and guess what? There was a cafe as well. The perfect way to satiate your hunger.

The best part of 5-star hotels is their spa. The award-winning, Rejuve- The Spa, Lalit, takes you to the land of tranquillity. Getting a spa therapy, to relax and rejuvenate your soul is the best thing to do to yourself when you’re on a holiday. Due to the New Year occasion, I got a good deal at The Rejuve, and allowed myself to pamper a bit. And loved it to bits. That was the best part of the whole trip, to be honest. The masseuses were polite and extremely gentle with their hands, and the ambiance was just perfect.

I sure am coming for the massage next time as well!

My 2-day stay at The Lalit New Delhi was comfortable and I totally allowed myself to devour in its luxury.

It was the courtesy of the hotel and our experience during the stay that made us realize we made the right choice!

There is something about the 5-star properties. The effort they take in making your stay the best, letting you indulge in kinds of whims and fancies, giving you a memorable experience, be it about food, or the impeccable service, or the courteous staff or the cleanliness and hygiene and above all, the marvelous infrastructure, every penny spent is worthwhile.

And for a splendid stay like this, I’d like to come again. And again!

Tell me what do you choose in your holidays? Is the stay that matters to you the most or is it the other things? For me, having a good, comfortable, luxurious stay is most of the times the priority ;) Share your experiences below and I’ll be more than happy to hear.

I am blogging about my luxury stay experience for an activity at BlogAdda in association with MakeMyTrip.

  1. Ooh you almost went to Lucknow - the city of my birth. Of course Delhi is way more glamorous and this hotel sounds great. A wonderful way to ring in the new year.

    1. Yes! Anyday Delhi is better than Lucknow! Thanks a ton!

      What did you do on New Years Eve?


  2. Gorgeous pictures. I like a simple stay and even a modest hotel will do the trick for me but view should be amazing and also places making it eventful. I stayed at Trident in Gurgaon during a work trip ad it was simply rejuvenating. What a wonderful way to kick up the new year.

    1. Thank you, Vishal! Would love to hear your New year stories. Trident is a beautiful property to stay. No doubt, you had a great time!



Thanks for dropping by :)
