Typically, my biased attitude towards the idea of opulent stay gives me immense pleasure whenever it bangs to my terms of family vacations. As a first preference for me, holidays and luxurious stay goes hand in hand. But this obligatory ritual of mine got a pause when I spent a week lengthy stay in OYO Rooms along with my family. In Sept. for a month’s tenure, my husband visits Mumbai for official purpose and his accommodation had been arranged in OYO, Ghansoli in Navi Mumbai. Later we (Chiyu & me) fused him in the last week before his return. Why not?? Who wouldn’t like to indulge themselves in varied localities?? Who doesn’t want to scout ‘The City of dreams’, ‘Home of Bollywood’ and varied localities of metropolis.
For many who already suffocate in the potpourri of Mumbai, is far more than 3 meals of Vada Paav, local trains, Taj, Gateway of India, Chowpati and Juhu. Obviously it is, every city has its own hidden treasures but I was the one who had left behind in tasting authentic spices of Maharashtrian food, who had never joined hands for prayers in front of divine Siddhi Vinayak temple nor took the long ride in Kaali Pilli on modishly constructed Sea Link. I was the one who had never uplift face to measure the busiest skyline of the country nor introduced with exquisite grandeur of rich history of the city who never sleeps or better known as Mayanagri.

Location: Navi Mumbai
Movies and idiot box conveniently portrayed a routine image of Mumbai similar to any other metro but yet Navi Mumbai is comparatively independent from the ancestral silhouette. This planned township attempting to bottom the burden of pollution and housing from the core city in multiple ways. Not only miscellaneous MNCs looking the future of the city as an active business hub but soothing noiseless environment is exemplary for educational institutions and like icing on the cake if I tell you that Navi Mumbai would have its own international airport by 2019. Beside these, there are other numberless peculiarities that give you the reason to fall for this newly based city.
After having a peachy fun-filled day with Chiyu we gauged roads for more than one hour from Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport towards our destination-OYO Rooms, Ghansoli. Familiar traffic scenes wouldn’t permit me to segregate between our departed and welcoming cities. Our ride terminated in front of a multi storey Arista Apartments where darkness overshadowed refreshing surroundings of the neighborhood.
Located on 8th floor this OYO Apartments 140 has indistinguishable features same as of home. After exchange of pleasantries with caretaker Rameshji soon we all enjoyed tear-inducing dinner cooked by him. A spacious apartment decked with 2 bedrooms, a ventilated kitchen, a dining and lounge area, laundry and two bathrooms. The first view from our room’s balcony was a real draw card, where the peaceful and quiet night already locked an embrace with those glittering lights of the far spread vicinity and the flickering glaze of flying planes along with the stars in the sky as if they were welcoming us in the impressive frame.
Both the rooms have dressers, placed next to queen sized beds furnished with spotless linens, comfy quilts and complementing curtains and tiles flooring that adorn the room’s spirits. Wardrobes with sliding gates in each room are extensively enough to cope up with needs of 2 families for their long comfortable stays. A property for those who admires stillness in the ambiance and because of height there’s not a peep to be heard from either street traffic or other adjoining buildings but then one can break vibe of stillness by LCDs provided separately in lounge and every single room. Due to hectic schedule my husband didn’t required WIFI but at the time of check-in you can ask for user name and password for free WIFI facility that comes with decent speed.
Amenities and Food:
OYO offers complimentary breakfast but we asked Rameshji to daily prepare our dinner and these add-on meals came under nominal charges. At last he is a fantastic cook and we wouldn’t like to miss his hand cooked Kari leaves dry aloo, mix veg, raita, all the food options that doesn’t allow anyone to miss home. As this is an apartment based property not located in any hotel, he is the single person on the name of staff who cooperatively takes care of everything. He is very polite and helpful who filled ice creams and a box of chocolates in fridge by specially considering Chiyu before our arrival. I was handed over with amenity kits included shampoo, notepads, pens, toothpaste, body gel and soaps means every basic necessity required.
By collating wide-ranging elements from my first time experience I would advocate the convenience of OYO Rooms.
