LUXURY IS IN EACH DETAIL
HELLO BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE!
So, this is MISSFOODIEDIARIES' first ever travel blog where i will be talking about this mesmerizing property- COURTYARD BY MARRIOTT, AGRA
Courtyard by Marriott is one of most beautiful properties i've personally reviewed and I am out of words when i think of describing their hospitality.
I actually might give them 6/5 because of the lovely treatment they've given me.
The entire building is massive with so many facilities like, gym, pool, spa and a banquet hall. Their entrance is so beautiful that you might find yourself standing outside looking at the entrance before going inside.
Once you enter, you'll be greated by everyone with "namastey" and a smile that might actually make your day. Their lobby is surely one of prettiest i have seen. So elegant and it has that 5 star quality in it. Not even one thing was out of space and everything just was so perfect. A treat to the eye. Their Spa is again very lavish, having various rooms for a couples alone time or for one person and has various choices of oils and are also doing foot and head massages.
Their gym is giant and can fit in many people at once. While you work out, you can enjoy the view of their gorgeous swimming pool.
One thing that i really loved was their 'Destination wedding' themed stage. So when you are planning your ideal big fat indian wedding, this should be your destination because it is more than perfect and will make you fall in love with the idea of wedding and also with their hospitality.
When you are staying in the hotel, you need to check out their lovely looking bar which is so large and so well designed. Their evenings are made special by a man playing some soothing music right infront of the entrance and you also have magic shows, mehendi maker, pottery maker and a puppet show. These things will keep your little ones occupied when you can sit at Momo 2 go, their coffee shop and sip some coffee and have some light snakcs.
All of these things are only to make the stay peaceful and memorable for the customer and so that they will surely come back whenever they return to Agra. If you ask me, I will surely live here yet again, on my next visit to agra.
MOMO CAFE is their magnificient and oh so pretty restaurant that is handled by their executive chef, Chef Vivek Kalia who is working with marriott from quite a few years and has moved to this property two years back. He is specialised in italian cuisine and to be honest, the italian dishes I had were the best i've ever had. The balance in flavors, the textures and the perfect taste just reflected his professionalism and dedication towards cooking and presentation of the food.
The restaurant has a lavish buffet during breakfast and dinner, serving so many items at one time and they have such a wide variety of dishes that you'll loose your mind while selecting what to have and what to skip.
Under the supervision of Chef Vivek, everything is made beautifully and they have paid attention to the fact that in Agra people are looking for Awadh cuisine, rather than any other. But yes, if you wish to try anything else, like I tried italian dishes, then you can request the chef and he will make them for you.
Keeping the taste very simple and authentic, Chef has created some wonderful dishes that will blow your mind after the very first bite. From the delectable starters to the main course, desserts and drinks, everything was amazing and had such vibrant flavors.
I had the best penne arrabiatta here and i just can't stop drooling over it. Even the picture makes me want to have it again. They make chaats in the evening buffet where you can either create your own chaat or you can ask the chef, who is standing near the chaat counter to create something delicious for you. Their menu is pretty wide with tons of options to pick from.
I had some really yummy coffee at momo 2 go which is something you cannot miss.
Their breakfast was just so yummy. The pancakes stole my heart. They were so gooey and yummy and then the dosa I had was so mind blowing and was filled with yummy masala. Their juices and every other drink that i had was really fresh and delish and also quite colorful.
From breakfast, to lunch and to dinner, every single dish that I had was without any doubt totally perfect and that is a sign of a 5 star brand. Their presentation, their cutleries, glasses and the cleanliness of the tables and clothes on the table was on fleek and i can't be more happy and satisfied as a customer.
I stayed in an executive suite which was really magical and was really alluring to the eye. A stunning towel art was created on the bed which was the centre of attraction and everything else just suited each other. The drawing room was also really nice and comforting. From my room, i could see their exquisite swimming pool. The washroom was another attractive element in the room and they had paid a lot of attention on every single item present in the washroom.
Even in the room, every thing jut fits perfectly and completes the room.
To end my blog about this heavenly stay that i had in Courtyard By Marriott, Agra, i want to say that if i have experienced luxury, i've experienced it right here.
My humble thanks to Team CBM,AGRA for showing me such respect and for such a memorable stay. You will soon be seeing me again.
