How about taking your family or your partner to these staycations that will let you check out Durga Puja in Kolkata, pandal hop and relax? Scroll for more.
AltAir Boutique Hotel in Sector V might come across as an unusual choice for leisure travel since it is situated in the heart of the city’s hippest business district. But once you walk in to the infinity pool on the rooftop and float towards the end, with the city spread around you, glistening in all its finery, you’ll forget all woes and will agree that this is just the place to relax. Done swimming? Come out, take a shower and enjoy the jacuzzi. This small but pretty boutique hotel also boasts of a restaurant, Capella, which extends to a rooftop and has become one of the hottest destinations in the city. The rooms are well appointed and come with a spacious washroom along with a gorgeous view of the surrounding area. The restaurant serves some delectable meals that will leave you wanting for more. Our recommendations? The Baileys Murgh Malai Tikka, Dry Tamarind Chilli Prawn, Non-veg platter and Mud Pie. Want to pandal hop? Drive around Salt Lake which has beautiful pujas in every block, or head further into the city via EM Bypass and head to south Kolkata.
