So, my stay at Noor Mahal for two days, started on 6 th august with a friend. Noor Mahal is located in Karnal heart of the city in Haryana. I must admit it was very well organized staycation by the Hotel. They sent us a car to pick us up from Delhi n drop us back. The weather was lovely to start our trip,we really enjoyed the chilled breeze and rains on our drive.
On our arrival, we had these pleasant faces giving us a warm welcome with garlands ,tilak and a welcome drink. The Lobby of this hotel is spectacular, and it is huge.
You get this heritage ffeel flowing all over the place, the ambience is very rich architecturally, it is well lit up,the paintings, wall hangings and show pieces are magnicificent work of art. You cannot miss this beau‐ tiful chandelier in the lobby ,and the metallic furniture embossed with beautiful work of art is very attractive.
They gave us our itiniery for the next two days of our stay with them. So, now it’s time to get into our ‘Herit‐ age Suite’. As we entered our extremely spacious and heritage room, they had welcomed us with fresh fruits that included bananas, grapes, kiwi, apple, mango shin etc. and well decked up pastry and cookies.
The ambience of our room was spectacular, it was spacious, the architect of that place gives u a royal feeling, Dinning area and drawing room as u enter is very well done up, the printed upholstered sofas just adds to the feel. The paintings and the art hanging on the wall makes u keep gazing at it; it is such a beautiful experience.
Bath Area was again very spacious, it had everything, including a bath tub and the toiletries provided were good quality too.
Our Lunch on our first day was at POLO BAR We ordered:
Tom Yum Soup to start with, it was delicious.
In Alcohol we had, Royal Salute, and beers. In starters,
we ordered Dim sums, Chicken Kai Pad Mamurag, both the dishes were quite nice.
Then we ordered Veg Spring rolls, food was undoubtedly very yummy.
In deserts I ordered, Cold coffee with Ice cream, Tutty Fruity sundae, and ras malai all the deserts were very yummy and totally satisfied our sweet cravings.
POLO BAR, is indeed a sports bar, on your entry to this restaurant u see a Snooker table, where we played snooker in the evening, and a huge bar with endless variety of normal to premium alcohol. Staff over all is very warm, and service is quick too, Seating at this restaurant was very comfortable, and this entire place depicts a very sporty feel, with snooker sticks, n golf sticks hung on the walls.
If u are at this beautiful place, n walking around, u cannot miss the beautiful décor in hall way, the entire palace has such a pleasant and refreshing rose fragrance. On our way to our Heritage suit we saw this metal pallaki, and small structures kept with rose petals in it, U indeed get this feeling that u r at a palace like we have seen in movies, Since it is open and airy and the weather being so good we really enjoyed our walk in the hall ways gazing at the beautiful décor.
There are two parts in the Veranda, One is DIWAN-E-KHAAS: and in between there is an open area with water fountain in marble makes your experience worth every sight.
Another is TASVEER KHAANA. It is a museum, which has a huge collection of variety of pictures of old Maharajas and their family history on the wall in stairways and other places and looking at these pictures it takes u back to your roots. KHAWABGAAH.
There another spectacular attraction is a very expensive room named as “KHAWABGAAH” which may cost u around 1.5 lakhs a night. This room looks so rich in our culture with fully decked up heritage things, and décor and feel to it. It’s the most spacious room of theirs; u can get the feel of it as u stand in front of this ancient door to this room. Inside the room u see these amazing historic pictures, fully metallic engraved scriptures on the wall. Everything about this room is simply gorgeous.
Metal embossed art work on Khawabgaah furniture is simply stunning, and the dining room has 8 seater dinning table, with rose petals dipped in water making the entire room smell so fresh. The wall hangings, art and paintings in khawabgaah is mind-blowing.Khawabgaah has two bedrooms, the beds of both the rooms are again metal embossed work, they are beautiful and extremely comfortable.
It has two bathrooms, both the bathrooms are huge, the mirror in the bathroom are beautiful, there is a bath tub, and WC is fully automatic. Bathroom is also one spectacular sight I must say, with gold and silver taps and extremely lustrous and shinny ambience.The other room is the same with this gorgeous metallic bed,I am obsessed with their metal work. I have no words to describe the beauty of khawabgaah, and this room opens to a balcony.
Khawabgaah is indeed an experience and oh so Dreamy!
Presidential suite was the one where we stayed. It is completely the opposite of Khawagaah, It is more of western touch, there are two rooms in this suite .One being the master bed room. Rooms are very spacious. We ordered our breakfast in the room itself and utilized are dining space. We ordered the very yummy and desi poori aaloo and omelets and relished it to the core.
FRONTIER MAIL RESTAURANT
Our dinner was at frontier mail restaurant. As the name suggests ,This restaurant is made in a railway theme. It has seating inside of railway bogies, and outside too. There is bar inside the bogy, which has a wide range of premium alcohol. We sat inside for our dining experience, and u get the feel of those old british heritage trains. It is well decorated with antique pieces, with copper and brass utensils. Our experience to dine here was quite different.
Food we ordered at Frontier Mail Restaurant was Mixed Pineapple Raita, Double decker Mushroom with spinach, Chapali Kebab- these are mutton kebabs very well spiced. And Masala Pappad.
I visited their spa to get Swedish massage done, it was an outstanding and a very relaxing experience.
Their salon is very spacious and with the heritage feel, it is an experience to rejuvenate there and pamper you. The wide range of makeup products and many make up stations makes it easier for wedding guests to have their look sorted.
My experience at this beautiful place NOOR MAHAL was nothing less than outstanding, it took me back to our roots. I am definitely coming back here again and again. And I am very thankful to Noor Mahal for taking care of us so well.
