I was recently invited to the Hyatt Pune which is located in Kalyani Nagar in Pune and is surrounded by greenery. With the key elements of light, air and water corresponding with every design element, the hotel has a serene ambience and positive energy which one can feel as soon as you enter the property. The use of water bodies in and around the hotel creates a peaceful vibe at the entrance and porch. For those looking to explore the city of Pune, Hyatt Pune Kalyani Nagar is situated right in the heart of the city, adjacent to the tranquil Aga Khan Palace, one of Pune’s best-known landmarks. Hyatt Pune is the only hotel in Pune with natural sunlight in all rooms, washroom and all public areas. I was hosted in a suite with a large beautiful garden attached; these suites are very popular with guests as this is only hotel in the city which offers garden suites especially on higher floors. “Hyatt Pune is like an oasis in the middle of a desert. Our hotel has plenty of scenic and landscaped locations like our poolside, outer decks with all our dining outlets and the ballroom terrace amongst others.

The twelfth floor of the hotel houses a popular spa which uses the fusion of traditional Ayurveda and international treatment. I went for an Ayurvedic treatment the first day called Abhyanga and a deep tissue massage the next day. The spa uses products from Ananda for both retail and treatments. This popular spa also offers yoga sessions at the picturesque outdoor swimming pool and I tried one of these sessions after which I felt absolutely rejuvenated and relaxed.
Hyatt Pune, Kalyani Nagar is known to create unique experiences with international chefs being flown in the city exclusively and the result is unique food promotions which have become very popular with Puneites as I discovered during my visit. While I was a guest at the hotel, I was invited to try the Korean menu at Baan Tao – the award winning Pan Asian restaurant which hosted a spectacular Korean Food Festival. An expat chef was flown in from Park Hyatt Busan, South Korea Chef Jeong Hwangil. Chef Suvendu Roy – Head Chef at Hyatt Pune said, “Korean food has grown in popularity exponentially in the past couple of years. Pune city also hosts a large number of Korean nationals settled in the city and thus the decision to host one of city’s most preferred cuisines with the authentic flavours that Chef Jeong brings with him was very exciting. We truly hope that our guests enjoyed the specially curated five course à la carte menu during the course of the festival.” Chef Jeong, in his first visit to India is excited to share his culinary skills with the food connoisseurs of the city as he intends to simultaneously also learn the art of Indian food culture. Chef Jeong recently conducted a Korean Food promotion at Grand Hyatt Singapore and is all set to present his country’s flavoursome cuisine to the curious and ever evolving food lovers of Pune. Samgyetang (Korean Chicken Soup), Jeonbol Cho (Salad with Prawns and Scallops) and Bosom Plate (Pork belly speciality) are some of his signature dishes which were served during this festival.
Hyatt Pune is a destination in itself what with it’s serene ambience, vast expanses of greenery and water bodies, spacious public areas, popular food and beverage outlets, a spa, all this managed by warm and efficient staff in the hotel. Perfect for a weekend stay for those looking for a short holiday as well as for those who are looking to stay in a hotel in Pune for work related reasons!
