Travel Diary: The Leela Palace Hotel, Bangalore.

I've lived in Bangalore for 5 years. 
It's a city I love and a city I miss dearly. 

The last time I was in Bangalore, in September 2012, mere six months after having left it. The sister I stayed at The Leela Palace Hotel. A stunningly beautiful place to spend a few days and feel all pampered and relaxed. While we lived in Bangalore, we often went to the Galleria for a spot of shopping- at Anokhi- and to The Oxford Bookstore and Cha Bar. We always marveled at the beauty and magnificence of the place and said we should someday come and spend a weekend there. But we never did. It always feels a little silly to stay in a hotel in our own city. :) So we never did. 

Then we found ourselves in Bangalore for a long weekend and it was the perfect time to do something we've wanted to do for absolute ages. 

We stayed here for four days and had the best time in the world. These are some of the pictures I snapped there.

Late night room service is one of the best parts of staying at a hotel. We ordered these delicious sweet treats late and night and had ourselves a little feast! 

If you ever find yourself in Bangalore. I'd highly recommend staying at The Leela. I had a wonderful time there and I can't wait to go back!
