Bask in the goodness of a comfortable stay coupled with great food, close to home, with a staycation at Hilton Bangalore Embassy Golf Links. By Rashima Nagpal

Standing tall near the Karnataka Golf Course, Hilton Bangalore Embassy Golf Links occupies an enviable spot in the city. It lies close to the lively Indiranagar area of Bengaluru—home to upmarket fashion labels, restaurants, and craft breweries. A staycation at the hotel is the perfect way to spend a relaxed weekend in the city, indulging in the simple pleasures of life.hilton bangalore

The hotel features a high lobby and well-lit corridors draped in warm shades of beige and brown. You can also spot metallic sculptures and colourful abstract paintings dotting its interiors. The luxury property houses the largest entry-level rooms in the city that include a king-sized bed, fully equipped kitchenette, four-fixture bathroom, ergonomic work desk, and home entertainment system featuring a 40-inch LED HDTV and DVD player. You can upgrade to a Deluxe View Guest Room for uninterrupted views of the nearby golf course or the pool area.

The opulent suites come with the choice of one and two bedrooms, along with unmatched views of the cityscape. The hotel also has dedicated rooms for guests with disabilities; they come with a rollin shower, and lowered toilet seat, temperature controls, switches, door peep-hole, sink, and bed. While the area is known to host a multitude of tempting dining options, there is no dearth of delicious food within the hotel premises with four diners providing the answers to all your food cravings.

The Salt Grill, which is only open for dinner, offers al fresco cabana seating by the pool. It serves a range of meat recipes, from tandoori chicken to New Zealand lamb chops grilled on pink Himalayan salt slabs. Vegetarian options include a great cauliflower bisque, deconstructed Greek salad, and fragrant basmati rice. The all-day dining restaurant, Ministry of Food, serves themed buffets—including pan-Asian, European, and Indian counters—on different days of the week.

For some great coffee and a quick bite, head to Re:cess. And trust the mixologist at Klinx, the quintessential lobby bar, for your fix of whisky, wine, or inventive cocktails. However, the best part about being here for the weekend is that you get to indulge in the extravagant Saturday and Sunday brunches.
