If you are looking for a luxury weekend getaway from the hustle bustle of the city life, then one of the best choices around Delhi is The Gateway Resort at Damdama Lake in Gurgaon. It’s just in a peaceful corner of Gurgaon, a suburb of New Delhi. This beautifully designed and maintained luxury resort is in the Aravalli Hills and just a 2-minute walk from Botanix Nature Resort, this upscale resort is 1.3 km from both Damdama Lake and Dream Island.
When we entered the resort the beautifully designed lobby with some really amazing furniture and walls decorated with Thanka paintings welcomed us, and we were impressed! The check-in was smooth and fast. The staff was very friendly and co-operative.
The moment we stepped into out of the reception and walked towards our room, the beautifully managed, lush green paths that divide the reception and restaurant area from the residential block of the resort just gave us the calm we were looking for.
A little away from the residential block was the children’s play area, which has Air Hockey, Xbox, lot’s of soft toys and outdoor play area as well. When we saw how well the kids were being taken care of by the staff – that was like full marks for hospitality to The Gateway team!
The lush green well manicured lawns and trees with fruits and some beautiful and exotic flora and fauna give you the satisfaction of being in the right place yet not being away from the world – and all this in just a 30 mins drive from Gurgaon! This just doesn’t feel like we are in a metro city!
The room we stayed in was at the first floor of the corner block, and it was very comfortable and we had complete privacy and room service was fast and we were very well taken care of. The room was quite, equipped with a 42″ LCD TV with all the popular channels. Although we missed the HD feed of our favourite shows, but it was good that I was carrying a HDMI cable with me and we enjoyed Netflix feed.
The food is above average, but 10/10 for the restaurant staff and the chef for being the perfect hosts! If you tell them what you want, what you like, they will go above and beyond to make you happy!
If you are looking for luxury weekend getaway options not so far from Delhi then staying at The Gateway Resort, Damdama Lake is highly recommended. I wish if we had more days to stay at The Gateway Resort, but we had great fun. We will definitely be going back again!
