Grand Kakatiya Hyderabad- A stay at ITC's luxury collection

Dates of stay: May 4-5, 2009
Rating: 4/5

The ITC Grand Kakatiya in Hyderabad is a part of the chain’s luxury collection. Well it is grand no doubt.

It has rooms at three levels- ITC One, Tower Rooms and Club/Executive. I was allocated a room in the hotel’s Eva (women only section). The room is spacious and ITC pampers you with a number of small touches and personal amenities. The best of course is the small aromatherapy kit they provide with roll-on oils for easy sleep and stress relief. A complimentary cup of hot chocolate/milk at night, an extensive pillow menu and a filter coffee maker are the other add-ons.

The bath is equally well equipped. A fantastic idea here is the food tray they have provided which fits onto the tub. Does some wine and cheese with a soak appeals to you my friend? I bet it does!
I decided to lunch at Dakshin- the south Indian restaurant, which was a fantastic meal. Dinner at Kebab’s and Curries was even better. The service outstanding. They could spruce up the menu at the 24*7 coffee shop though. If you have the time and want to enjoy a buffet breakfast/lunch, visit the Mariott at Tank Bund and have a meal at the Okra.

Back to the ITC. The business facilities and service staff are great throughout. I did not get the time to check out the pool or the health club facilities. I did want to take a brisk walk though, but the hotel compound was too small for that! A stay at the ITC is all about being pampered. Enjoy!
