As humans, we are a confused species, divided between going along the backpacking culture and attending to work woes. While we most often want to go along with the plan that suggests getting on the next plane and taking an impromptu trip, reality doesn’t always allow that. However, here’s a concept we curious cults have discovered, embraced and highly recommend it time and again, a staycation!

Need to unwind and wash off all those blues? Head to a home not away from home for a staycation! Mumbai, this one is for you. (For curious souls planning to visit the maximum city for business or leisure, you should be reading this too!) Reaching last month’s finish line, we decided to take ourselves to a comfortable staycation at Holiday Inn, Mumbai International Airport.

Located in the heart of the city, Holiday Inn Mumbai is a 10-minute drive from the airport, making it an ideal property for those wanting to maintain the proximity and distance balance to the airport. We checked-in on a long weekend which was a full house for the beautiful property, but the team at Holiday Inn ensured seamless check-in and services all through our stay.

Our luxurious room was well planned, catering to guests on a vacation as well as a workcation (They had a dedicated workspace too!)  The ballrooms, lounge area, meeting rooms and sky terrace in the property itself are well suited to meet the requirement of every corporate and personal event.

A look around our room

The king-sized bed, ample of wardrobe space, a beautiful view overlooking the happenings of Mumbai made for the perfect home for the weekend. We can’t miss mentioning our absolute favorite aspect, a see-through view of the TV from the bathtub, with integrated speakers above the bathtub ensuring that while we took our turns, washing off our blues literally, we had our favourite TV show/playlist for entertainment!

The view from the room

While our little indoor swim in the bathtub was a great fresh start on a staycation, (Quite literally) it was the dip in the rooftop infinity pool that won our hearts over. Imagine swimming like a fish in the pool or resting by the infinity with the Mumbai skyline for a view?  Perfect doesn’t get any more real than this.

When on a staycation, unwind like your body expects you to. We decided to listen to our sore muscles and head to Tattva Spa for a deep tissue massage which helped us rejuvenate from the overworked month we had. We will be sharing more details from our experience in another post soon.

Once you’ve achieved your body detox, allow yourself a food coma at Saptami, an all-day dining multi-cuisine restaurant serving scrumptious buffet meals through the day. (If you’re not up for a spread, they have a vast à la carte menu as well.)

We decided to go with the dinner and breakfast buffet which consisted of live counters, self-service stations across varied cuisines and best of desserts. The elaborate stations and offerings cater to everyone from a vegan to a meat patron.

We definitely loved spoiling our sweet tooth

Believing in the scope of consistent improvement, a designated team member personally went around for a quick chat with each guest for their feedback and room or property specific suggestions.

We concluded our staycation feeling afresh because without having to check-in our luggage on an airplane or taking a long road trip, we had taken a happy holiday!

P.S: If you’re planning a weekend to help you unwind, we say ditch the conventional movie/dinner or drink, wash away your blues, take a staycation at Holiday Inn Mumbai and thank us later! Until next time, #StayCurious 🙂
