What we thought was an invitation to experience the hospitality of a hotel metamorphosed into something that was totally unexpected, it turned out to be a melange of experiences that went beyond the ordinary and transcended the borders of the extraordinary. A journey that took us along with fellow bloggers on a trail that started from Chennai and ended in Chennai. We had an experiential journey that took us into the benign warmth of GRT properties in Chennai, Mahabalipuram, and Kanchipuram. We marvelled at the fascinating cuisine spread out before us with ingenious twists and turns that took food from the mundane plane of simple eating to many octaves higher, pushing the frontiers of innovation. Spectacular performances transported us into a different and magical world as the stars twinkled in the night sky and the waves of the sea crashed against the shore in the distance. The senses were then soothed with the serenity of Spas only to be taken to a high with activities like ATV riding and Zorbing. We were fascinated by the heritage and history of Mahabalipuram as we gazed in awe at the Shore temple. A visit to the Kanchipuram temple appealed to our spiritual senses and we then marvelled at the sheer artistry of the weavers who create magic through the famed Kanjeevaram Sarees. The time spent has carved out a niche in our minds that will cherish the memories for a long time. Here is a small slice of the affair that we had with GRT in pictures, it is indeed just the tip of the iceberg and we hope that this whets your appetite for more. We have a series of posts coming up about the wonderful experiences that we had with the GRT hotels and beyond. Do stay tuned for more exciting posts that are sure to capture your imagination.
The Salt Co 531 restaurant at Radisson Blu by GRT Hotels, Airport Road tantalisingly promises an unforgettable affair with food. A block of pink Himalayan salt, the very salt which legend has it that Alexander the Great accidentally discovered when his horses were licking some rocks! The restaurant is themed like a salt mine of yore and the food is bound to send your senses into raptures of ecstasy.
The gateway to a treasure trove of experiences, the entrance of the Radisson Blu Resort Temple Bay, Mamallapuram.
Waking up in the morning in the midst of nature must surely rank as one of the greatest experiences one can have. A hypnotic sunrise and maybe a game of beach volleyball sets the tone for an exciting day.
Spending some time at the sublime environs of the Bodhi Spa is sure to rejuvenate and recharge every cell of your body.
A massage with expert masseurs well versed in the traditional nuances of Kerala who use Ayurvedic oils to soothe frayed nerves, craving for relaxation.
Hit the temple trail to experience the intriguing magic of ancient temples and be fascinated by their history, in Mahabalipuram.
The opportunity to see how magic was weaved in Kanchipuram in the form of Kanjeevaram Sarees was something we could not resist.
Of course, we could not miss the magnificent temples of Kanchipuram which bewitch you with their grandeur.
As the afternoon sun reached its zenith and not before relishing a lunch cooked with the same ingredients of love and caring at the Regency by GRT, we headed back to Chennai to a Grand welcome at the Grand by GRT Hotels.
The Grand by GRT Hotels is a veritable treasure house of art, a wonderful mosaic that stitches together the best of culture and art from across India and the world.
A place where food has risen beyond the ordinary to evolve into a fine art.
Where food is not about chewing and ruminating, but about a holistic and thrilling experience and exciting storytelling.
