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.

For guests on hol­i­day, we of­fer the beau­ti­ful Gar­den Suite with its very own pri­vate ter­race gar­den.

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.

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.
