The Conrad Hotel was the first luxury brand of Hilton to break ground in India. We were among the first guests in 2016 and we stayed again in January of 2018 because the experience is so enjoyable. Pune is a thriving university town, it takes only three hours driving from Mumbai and it has its own international airport. Even if you just come for the hotel like we did, thats reason enough!
The hotel is located 20 minutes away from the airport and the Conrad brand is doing a great job promoting themselves, there are impressive signs all around the city and they have a very dynamic social media page.
The hotel is housed in a very modern tower, in front of one of the main rivers of the city. The lobby is unforgettably beautiful. It is grand and intimate at the same time, offering an excellent welcoming from the bustling noise of the city. It is really a hotel that makes an immediate impression. Its layout and decor are just stunning. Everybody is friendly and excellent ambassadors of India’s world renowned hospitality.
The rooms are beautiful and very spacious, with a lot of wood, spa like bathrooms and breathtaking views of the huge park that surrounds the hotel. The staff were very on point with turn down service and any requests we made. The lounge is a delightful space where staff are eager to serve their guests in a warm and comfortable environment.
One of the most beautiful parts of the hotel is the centerpiece pool, it is located on the third floor: a paradise of peace and tranquility with jets and sunbeds and cabanas. In just a matter of minutes any guest is welcomed with chilled water, a cold towel and fresh fruits. The Spa is equally amazing with separate locker rooms for men and women where one can enjoy both steam and sauna. The gym is fully equipped with the most modern technology and even personal trainers always eager to assist.
One of the magnificent aspects of the Conrad Pune is the high quality of all the dining venues, ranging from the all day dining facilities to bars, a secluded lobby café and excellent restaurants. We had the pleasure of tasting different dishes and everything was of the most amazing quality and freshness. The Italian and Indian dishes were our favorites.
We took advantage of the comprehensive spa treatments too. Here you can select from Traditional Indian massages as well as Western style massages. All of them were expertly done and the value of these treatments was excellent, we really recommend this hotel as a place to relax and rejuvenate.
