I love the extended weekends where I get to relax and rejuvenate. I have always lived in places at close proximity to sea. This is how I established the profound relationship and belonging with the sea . So planned to spend quality time in a luxury beach resort for one of the extended weekend getaway.
The hunt began. Searching through the list of hotels on various websites, checking their reviews and locating them on map was not an easy job. It took me one whole week to shortlist and find my dream destination which is Welcome Hotel Kences Palm, Mamallapuram. At one corner of my heart I believed this holiday was going to be astounding.
The moment I arrived the hospitality team welcomed with this beautiful sea shell garland and a sweet tangy drink comforting my taste buds. Post formalities the lady chauffeur drove me in an electric vehicle to my home for next one day. This was one of the spacious upper storey Garden Bunglow rooms. Major amenities consisted of fluffy double bed, storage area, mini fridge, TV, beach slippers, hair dryer, and bath robes. The location of this room was such that I got easy access to the restaurant, the pool and the beach areas. Devoted some time to me by relaxing in the private balcony,enjoying the view of greenery all around and listening to the birds twittering.
I started for a walk by the sea side. The evening sky spread like a curtain of silk and the rising and falling of tides in the jewel blue sea left me spellbound . The resort does not have a private beach however it was calm and serene. Then I sneaked into the pool area lounging, swimming and drinking . This pool was the perfect travel luxury where a section was jacuzzi and from the pool I was also getting direct view of the deep blue sea. Then the evening snack and tea was served at pool making my stay here even better.
Food food food! Who does not love to eat? Post refreshment it was dinner time and I headed towards their restaurant called “RIVA”. I chose alacarte over buffet. Immediately the team served with garlic bread as complimentary appetizer. In not more than 20 mins entree was on table, the “Grilled butter Garlic Prawns”. 10/10 to the presentation and taste. I ordered Hot chocolate mud pudding for the mandatory sweet indulgence. Then I walked through the garden pathway, feeling the breeze and listening to the sea song of the waves.
Next day morning, I did not want to leave the cozy corner of bed but the sea was calling and I could not stop. Walked out of my room, down the stairs, past the garden and pool for a morning greet with the sea. Then spent some time lying on the hammock swinging, watching the clear sky and lost in my dreams.
I went to the restaurant area. In breakfast buffet variety of food was offered, from upma, dosa, idli, poha, puri tarkari to muffins,croissant, waffles, bread toast, omelette and many more. I had a heart full and tummy full breakfast. Then sat for a while sipping my morning cup of tea.
Before I packed my bags there was enough time for another dip in the pool. Apart from swimming played throw ball for quite sometime.
The clock ticked 12 and I started preparing to bid a good bye. Never was willing to but had to leave the place. No worries as I carried a bag full of memories to cherish. Thank you Welcome Hotel Kences Palm for treating me well.
