Just half an hour from the center of Gurgaon lies The City Escape, a beautiful oasis in the backdrop of the dusty Aravalli Hills. Set in three acres of lush greenery, this luxury homestay is made up of three charming colonial bungalows and a kothi with rolling lawns. This retreat is perfect for last minute weekend getaways from Delhi-NCR, complete with an elaborate list of activities for everyone to enjoy.
This Unhotel has a cluster of three independent cottages.
Romantic verandas wrap themselves around each house much like the ones in tea gardens and hill stations during the British era. Large glazed windows look out into the gardens outside.
All bungalows are decked up tastefully with artifacts and artwork from a bygone era.
The kothi has three large suites with a veranda and a terrace. The rooms are inspired by the flat roof kothis of early 20th century Punjab.
The suites represent different regions of Punjab and are furnished with period furniture and lavish decor.
The flat stone rooftops are topped by a layer of mud phuska that keeps the building cool in the summers and warm in the winters.
The dining area is housed in the Orangery which also serves as a recreational area and is inspired by English conservatories, with glazed windows on all four sides and vaulted ceilings.
The City Escape offers parking and free Wi-Fi in some rooms. All rooms are air-conditioned. There are parking facilities as well. Laundry service is available at an extra charge.
The City Escape subscribes to the Slow Food movement and sources food from the neighbourhood, leaving a minimal carbon footprint.
The food at this Unhotel is made using traditional cooking methods of wood and coal fire. Rich local grains like bajra, jowar and corn are used in most of their dishes although they do cater to the specific needs of their guests.
