The Paul Hotel Review: Classic Luxury and More in Bangalore

11 Jun 2018

After visiting Kolkata in the north, it was quite a relief to find that the weather in Bangalore was much cooler and drier, making it a very comfortable place to stay be. While in Bangalore, I stayed at The Paul Hotel. The Paul is only a 20 minute drive from the center of the city, and set in a fairly quiet area. Next to the property, there are both residential areas and tech giants. Bangalore really is the Silicon Valley of India!

The first feature of the property that I noticed, was the spacious atrium in the heart of the property. This large open area is very well ventilated, making it comfortable throughout the stay. Even while wearing a suit, as I normally do, I felt great in this area. The atrium holds the Sidewalk Cafe & Bar, reception and concierge desk.

I checked in at The Paul reception, received a welcome drink and then I went up to the third floor to view my massive two bedroom suite! I’ve stayed in a lot of large suites in my days, but this was right up there with the largest of them. There were two full bedrooms, two full bathrooms, dining room, kitchen, living room and an additional half bathroom. Spacious to say the least.

The bathrooms were both equipped with partitioned showers, quality toiletries and many nice flower designs.

The suite also featured multiple balconies. One had lounge chairs and made a great place to sit. The birds chirping along with the cool breeze made this a magical setting. One of the days there, I sat on the balcony, sipping tea, while watching a storm roll in. Beautiful.

On the ground floor of The Paul there is the fitness center, covered pool, changing rooms with both steam room and sauna. All of the fitness center’s numerous workout machines weres very high in quality. Every type of weightlifting machine and size of free-weight were there, great for fitness buffs. All of the equipment was quite new, except a couple treadmills could be updated.

The pool was just next to the fitness center, and had a roof.

The Paul Hotel Bangalore has several food and beverage outlets. Along with the Sidewalk Cafe in the atrium, they have Murphy’s Brewhouse, Masala Dani and Vembanad. A unique offering is that The Paul brews 4 types of beer on-site, which they serve in all their dining outlets. During our stay, we had the pleasure of trying all of the restaurants! My favorite restaurants included Vembanad, Masala Dani and Murphy’s Brewhouse. Be sure to read about Vembanad in a separate article!

The Murphy’s Brewhouse offers both great quality food as well as tasty drinks. I must say that all of the dishes I had at Murphy’s were quite enjoyable. Some of my favorites included the fish and chips, meat lovers pizza, nachos and the chili and lime prawns. My favorite of their four home-brewed beers was their Holy Sally, which is a Belgian wheat beer that reminded me of Hoegaarden. Refreshing and flavorful!

The Paul Hotel Review: Classic Luxury and More in Bangalore Asia Bengaluru Blog Hotels India

The Paul staff gave us a quick tour of the beer brewing facility which I found quite interesting. Their brew-master is constantly working on perfecting existing beers and creating new ones! I definitely want to try making my own beer in the future also.

At the Sidewalk Cafe, you can enjoy The Paul’s breakfast buffet. This is also their all-day dining restaurant, offering an a la carte menu and buffet, with cuisines from all around the world. Their menu was absolutely impressive with so many options, from so many different regions. Some of the most well represented areas were Indian, Western, Southeast Asian and Chinese cuisines.

The breakfast buffet focused on Indian dishes, as one would assume. It is also possible to order several items a la carte, including Indian and Western dishes. The service during breakfast was very good, and the open-air environment made it very comfortable.

When it was time to depart, we were sure to book The Paul’s transfer service. It made getting to the airport a breeze and I would suggest you book it as well.

I truly enjoyed my stay at the classically luxurious Paul Hotel in Bangalore, India. What really stood out to me was the quality of service, and the food and beverage outlets. So much delicious food and drink! From a function standpoint, the hotel’s design works very well, my only qualm is that the design is a bit dated. The location made The Paul Bangalore Hotel very convenient starting point to get around the city. The staff made our experience extra special because they’re all very personable and genuinely care about their guests. I would definitely come back for another stay at The Paul Bangalore!

Vembanad Restaurant Review: Southern Indian Kerala Cuisine in Bangalore

11 Jun 2018

In the north of India, I was introduced to Bengali food, and in the south I was introduced to Kerala food at the Vembanad Restaurant inside of The Paul Hotel in Bangalore, India. Be sure to read about my Paul Hotel stay here. The Vembanad is well known in the area for offering the boldly flavored Kerala cuisine. I found Kerala food different than other Indian food I had tried, mostly because of the seasonings and that I felt lighter after eating it. Our visit fell during a local festival time in Kerala, so we were served a full-on feast! This also meant that they had decorated the dining room in a special festive way.

The meal started off with a bang when the Vembanad staff brought a basket full of dried chili, tapioca chips and crackers. These were served alongside fish and mango pickle, which I absolutely fell in love with during the meal. I accompanied this with a Black Beard Dry Stout, which is actually produced by the Murphy’s Brewhouse inside of The Paul Hotel.

Some of my favorite items from the evening were the anchovies fried in thick Kerala masala, the prawns cooked inside of a banana leaf, and of course the dessert which was the chef’s special. During this meal we are also served a bread which was made from fermented rice. This had a slightly sour taste which fit the food perfectly.

The evening was accompanied with great service, as the staff were warm and friendly. I loved this meal because the food was so unique, and pumping with bold flavors. Kerala food seems to fit my palate perfectly, salty, spicy and sour. This got me excited to visit Kerala in the near future, but for now I’m very satisfied with the food I had at the Vembanad restaurant, at The Paul Hotel in Bangalore, India!

MoMo Café Review (Bengaluru, India)

11 Jun 2018

I was actually quite excited to try out the Momo Café located at the Courtyard by Marriott Bengaluru Outer Ring Road Hotel. I had previously ate breakfast at Momo Café several times and towards the end of my stay, I decided to try dinner there. During the evening they offer both an à la carte menu and a buffet.

I asked the staff what they would recommend and they suggested the Pan-fried Prawn with Dried Curry Leaves. Out of all of the dishes, these prawns were my favorite, bursting with flavor!

Courtyard by Marriott Bengaluru Hotel Review: Outer Ring Road Comfort

11 Jun 2018

It was my first time visiting Bengaluru, India, and I first checked in at the Courtyard by Marriott Bengaluru Outer Ring Road Hotel. It’s quite the journey from the airport, but once I stepped into the lobby, I immediately felt a familiarity with the property. Marriott is one of the most consistent hotel brands, and I suppose that is what I can credit this comfortable feeling to. The property is located about 30 minutes drive from the center of Bengaluru. Immediately surrounding the property you will find lots of technology companies, that is why it would be very convenient to stay at the Courtyard if you have business in the area.

For my stay I had a spacious suite on the six floor. The suite’s large living room featured comfortable seating, a desk with office chair, coffee station, all with a city view. I’d like to take note of the coffee machine because it is a real espresso maker, instead of a capsule machine. During my stay I enjoyed some ultra-strong coffee which helped me blaze through my work. Cheers Courtyard!

On the first floor of the Courtyard by Marriott Bengaluru Outer Ring Road Hotel you will find several facilities, including the Marriott Club Lounge, fitness center, outdoor pool, BG’s Restaurant and the Scent Spa. The lounge was very comfortable indeed, and a place I could find a peaceful area to work. The lounge does not offer breakfast but does offer afternoon soft drinks and an evening cocktail hour with food buffet. The evening buffet was very extensive and included an impressive amount of alcohol from several corners of the globe. The food featured was mostly Indian cuisine. The staff in the Marriott Club Lounge offered attentive service in the evening, although during the daytime it was occasionally understaffed.

During the stay at the Courtyard by Marriott in Bengaluru, I went for a massage at their Scent Spa, also on the first floor. The Scent Spa offers both international and local spa treatments, but I was after a local Indian massage known as Abyanga. It’s not an extravagant spa but it does get the job done. After my massage, I left feeling refreshed and relaxed at the same time. It was a no-frills experience but reached the desired outcome. Success!

Sunday Brunch in Bangalore: BG’s Restaurant Review

11 Jun 2018

BG’s is a poolside restaurant located between the Fairfield and Courtyard Hotels on Outer Ring Road in Bengaluru, India. During my recent stay, I was able to visit BG’s on two separate occasions, one was for their Sunday Brunch, and the second was for an a la carte dinner. Both instances were completely different in atmosphere and food offerings.
