Jet-setting on business and vacation just got slightly more luxurious, ladies. A stroke of sheer panache and little, thoughtful touches have made all the difference to your safe, comfortable stay so that you
can work and relax.
You can go on an escorted jog in the green patch of Westin Woods or burn calories in the swanky gymnasium under the supervision of your personal lady trainer. The Westin Mumbai Garden City offers women guests the liberty of travelling light with athletic wear and shoes for use to stay shapely even while globe trotting. The hotel earmarks an entire floor, especially for women travellers, and even brings in a spot of luxe
pampering by offering lady guests a special salt bath amenity on turndown.
Oberoi Hotels & Resorts brings in suave lady chauffeurs in a gleaming fleet of Audi A8s to drive you around during your stay at the property in Mumbai. Knitting security with style in its inimitable, pioneering fashion, the hotel offers a battery of lady chauffeurs, trained to deal with the technicalities of the luxury vehicles and familiar with the city routes, including the location of Mumbai’s popular tourist attractions. Of course, they have been groomed extensively by the concierge team to ensure impeccable interaction, in
both English and Hindi, with the guests.
At Alila Diwa Goa, rooms sharing proximity with the elevators are allocated to single women travellers. The property places a premium of ease of connectivity with its lady guests, and hands out a cell phone to every woman traveller, especially the ones coming from abroad, who checks in. The cell phone is fed with vital numbers of the hotel, the duty manager, a taxi hotline for ease of communication.
JW Marriott, Juhu, Mumbai, brings in a spot of personal comfort for women travellers on the move. If there is more than one room blocked under their name, an interconnected room is offered. Upon arrival in the room, a personal letter from the front office team awaits, assuring the lady guests of their personal security, with contact numbers listed, to take care of any
extra details that the guests might want.
For ladies from Japan, the Oberoi Hotels & Resorts brings in special Japanese bath robes and kimonos. Over the weekend, during turndown service, your personal lady butler laces the bath tub with rose petals, exotic bath salts and fragrant candles for a mini spa experience in your own room. This is followed by a bottle of wine and a plethora of magazines set up by the window. Of course, from your arrival to departure you are attended to by an all-women concierge.
Live It Up
Single women guests are made to feel especial with the in-room and in car check-in service at The Westin Mumbai Garden City. Rooms for such guests are located closer to the elevators and non-inter connecting rooms, and are preferably on lower and non-smoking floors. There is a regular check on the floor by the security team at night. They have a carefully constructed vitamin powered menu. Low calorie specials pumped with antioxidants play out the ditty in foodie aplomb.
The Courtyard by Marriott, Pune Chakan, is located along the industrial belt of the city. The bustling hotel has come up with ingenious tips to make its women guests feel comfortable when they step out of the property. Apart from offering customised meals and an entire floor dedicated to women guests, the hotel also ensures a chaperoned drive for women guests, with a member of the front desk sitting with the driver in front, each time they exit the hotel. Guests can arrange to have the lights in their rooms turned on before they head back from dinner or a late meeting.
