Had booked This Stay 4m our local supplier in Mumbai & honestly we were not disappointed.First we were greeted at the airport by a smiling & courteous chauffeur.After a 45 mins drive we entered the magnificent property surrounded by the greenery & the vast gardens.
Now for the check in, we had booked a executive suite room for 2 nights.But we were then offered an upgrade to a Presidential SuiteRoom for just 2k & we gladly took it.An executive from the front desk accompanied us to the room for check in formalities & once we entered our Presidential Suite Room it was just WOW!!!!It was a huge room comprising of a big drawing room & a bedroom.But the X factor which takes away the stay is the Big Gallery which we solely owned for 2 nights which is also below the famous rain tree which is about a century old!The room was quiet spacious & totally comfy!!!
Now getting to the other aspects of the property The Restaurants.On the first night we decided to try the Thai cuisine 'The Rim Naam' Restaurant.The ambience was fantastic surrounded by an artificial pond filled with fishes & every table had a very well lit candle which seemed to be a candle light dinner.The meal was out of the world & one of the best Thai food.One should surely go & try out the food there.The other which is also located on the ground floor is the 'Le Jardin' where the breakfast is served.The breakfast was fine with all various specialities spread out!
Next comes the Chinese restaurant 'Szechwan Court' where all the surprised landed.I had my sister in law coming over to the place & then we decided to take a lunch over there.The ambience was very good to & we found the place all to ourselves!!!After a while we found the in house chef walking out, Mr. Arup Kakati & what a coincidence it was, as we Assamese he turned out to be one too!!!& What a wonderful human being he was.We had quiet long chat with Mr. Arup Kakati & he helped us chose the menu!& the first surprise he gave us some lovely & mouth watering Dim Sums later followed by the best main course ever & to round it up followed the Brownie with Ice Cream & later we found that he had offered the Dim Sums & the desert as a compliment from him!A great hospitality offered by the Oberoi!
There is another dining alternative which we didn't get the chance to go 'The Polo Club' which is always full of aristocrats.Its an open air place where in all evenings there is a solo band performing.
Come the other aspects is the transfers.We had opted one for a local use.We were offered various vehicles all coming at affordable rates.The car was always before time & waiting for us.
On the day of check out we had a opted for a early breakfast as we had 2 rush 2 another destination.We filled ourselves well & rushed off quickly & then we saw one the waiters running towards us.We found out that my husband had forgotten his glares on the dining table & he had come to hand it over.Very courteous of him!
Both our days went off very smoothly & it was a total flawless stay!!!We would like to specially recommend couple of names from the staff who were the best, one was The In House Chef Mr. Arup Kakati & One of the cashiers (can't recall his name)someone Imitiaz.
Just a mini drawback which I would like to mention is a suggestion to all The Oberoi Properties in India especially in the metro cities (as I have stayed in other Oberoi's)is about the TV channels.One of the channels missing in all the Oberoi properties also the Bangalore one is 'The Zee TV' Channel.Still Wondering why u don't have it????as it has some specific programs which is follow on a daily basis.
Anyways leaving that aside it was a wonderful & a memorable stay at The Oberoi Bangalore.We would surely visit the property again in future.3 Cheers 2 The Oberoi!!!!
