Once we deliberate for a visit to Assam, the primary property that got here to my thoughts was Vivanta Guwahati however I later realised that it’s distant from main vacationer sights within the metropolis that we meant to discover, with main give attention to Kamakhya temple.
So we ended up reserving Radisson blu and right here’s a fast overview of my keep on the property throughout early 2021.
- Income charge: ~ 6,500 INR per evening (incl. GST)
- I paid: by way of Intermiles
The value was bit cheaper again then because it was the time when the journey is getting again to regular from the 2nd wave. I can now see that they’re promoting the most cost effective rooms at round 7.5K INR.
The property is out there on most reserving engines, so you might additionally use most bank card rewards redemption portal to get your complimentary keep.
We checked in late within the night after an hour lengthy tiring covid check course of on the airport. Nonetheless, I didn’t miss to ask for an improve citing Amex Platinum membership by which I get Gold tier.
The entrance workplace govt (extra about her later) did improve us to the perfect room (as she mentioned) with some welcome amenity: contemporary fruits.
The room was good, neither compact, nor large. By the point we had been staying, the higher flooring/ enterprise class rooms weren’t operational, so we solely had this. First rate one I might say.
The woman at entrance workplace that I discussed above was one among a form. I might charge her one step above the perfect Amex platinum concierge, I imply such a thoughts blowing velocity and execution of requests with correct comply with ups & consideration to particulars.
I hardly ever come throughout such sharp entrance workplace executives and he or she’s positively the perfect I’ve ever seen in current occasions.
We didn’t initially plan a lot for the journey relating to transport, so she helped us get related to a pleasant driver who took us by all the journey throughout Assam & Meghalaya. Additionally answered our by no means ending questions, actually, that each one helped us plan for an excellent journey.
Breakfast: Buffett was fairly good for a property of that grade.
For dinner although, we did attempt in the future and weren’t happy so the FO girl gave some ideas, like having a thali at Khorikaa restaurant, and so forth, which we did attempt throughout our keep at Vivanta, because it was close by.
In the event you plan to go to the Brahmaputra cruise (Alfresco Grand), you could have a light-weight night snack / dinner there.
Alfresco Cruise is a should have expertise I might say. It’s not luxurious as such, however the night expertise with the character on the mighty Brahmaputra is value having fun with. Unhappy half although is you’ll come throughout a lot of mosquitos because the solar units, not in the course of the first 1hr although, which is sweet.
And of-course the cruise reserving, follow-up’s had been all taken care by that girl, seamlessly.
General it’s a fairly large property I might say however we didn’t get time to discover it a lot, as we had been restricted by time and anyway most amenities weren’t useful by then resulting from covid.
General we had an incredible keep within the property.
Finest location for native sight seeing spots, good meals, an enthusiastic entrance desk govt and a good room. If I ever come again to the gateway of north-east India, the keep would start with Radisson Guwahati.
However properly, your expertise could fully differ when you’re not fortunate as we had been in getting related to the suitable particular person to deal with all of the wants. Furthermore, covid gave them lot of time to work together with company, as there have been solely few company to take care of.
That each one mentioned, I want their loyalty program will get a facelift someday quickly, because it at the moment exists just for the sake of current.
