Whenever I thing about going out on the weekend with family, I usually get stuck as there are few options available. The reason for starting weekend getaway series – Based on my experience, I always felt short of options. This led me to explore five star properties in nearby cities where the weekend spent would be more meaningful and luxurious. Spending time away from home at times and with family and in these properties has truly been an eventful and enjoyable experience.  

The Gateway Resort, Gurgaon truly defines my experience summed up as above. This place not only offers an amazing experience, but also keeps you occupied with various activities. The Gateway Resort, Gurgaon opened last year and my team had been there for the launch. They had raving reviews to share and had a great time. I was invited on their first anniversary and realised time flies.

The menu was extensive and I must mention that I had one of the best lunches in recent times. I will share my experience on food in next post as the food that we gorged on, requires more narration. Eg: Kosha manghso and the luchi that I had, was one of the best I have eaten in Delhi/NCR.

Pulkesin Mohan, GM, The Gateway Resort shared with Mystic Foodie Mantra, that they are soon launching an app for their guests that will provide guests,  the option to explore and know about the  various birds and tree that are found in the resort.
