So here I was again back to Kumaon hills. This time I decided to stay in Haldwani town visiting multiple places while making Haldwani as my base. Why did I choose Haldwani as the place to stay and not any other town has several reasons:
Haldwani has good hotels that offer all the amenities provided by star hotels in any large town. I am used to these luxuries and for me, these are basic necessities. I can’t live without these.
Haldwani is the only place in this area that has some nightlife. The rest of the towns go absolutely dead after 10 PM and I don’t like that.
Haldwani has good call and internet connectivity. Though I am on my leisure trip, there are few works which are important and I need to attend to those regularly even while on travel. Staying back in one of these hill towns means losing out on connectivity at times and I don’t want to get trapped in that.
With Haldwani as the base, I could explore multiple hill towns as all these towns are connected to Haldwani. The roads between these hill districts are really poor and would have posed challenges in traveling.
Once, I was sure to stay back in Haldwani, I started looking out for hotels. I checked several hotel booking portals and read reviews left by fellow travelers. I found Hotel Blue sapphire as the most highly recommended hotel on various portals like make my trip, trip advisor etc and decided to check out the place along with a few others which were rated well. I visited 5 star hotels in haldwani along with Hotel Blue Sapphire Haldwani and checked various amenities offered by these. I was pleasantly surprised to see the hotel quality in Haldwani. The hotels were clean and the rooms were well stuffed. Most had nice rooms with restaurants etc.
I , post my visit to all these hotels, decided to stay at Hotel Blue sapphire Haldwani. The reason was simple – it was the cleanest, has sufficient and safe place to park my car and my room had a view of Nainital hills, which was awesome in the nights. The hotel has a beautiful and well-stocked bar, which makes it easy to spend some time in the evening and get to speak to people from all over. I was surprised by the good quality of people I could interact with at the bar on most days. The whole atmosphere is quite relaxed. The food is delicious and has a wide variety to offer.
A five star hotel is called so for the convenience and the style it provides to user. Five star hotels assure a certain level of services and facilities to the user and though priced higher than other hotels, it provides the luxury unmatched by other hotels. Talking of Haldwani, there is just one hotel, Hotel Blue Saphire, which provides luxuries that one would associate with a five star hotel. This hotel is in the town and has all the modern facilities to ensure a comfortable stay for the guests.
Hotel Blue Saphire offers luxuries unrivalled by any other hotel in this entire region. It has a swimming pool that is as good as a swimming pool can be. The view from the swimming pool and from the party area next to it are quite nice. The lobby area is grand and makes an immediate impression on the guest as he enters the hotel. The maintenance of all these areas in the hotel is impeccable and is at the same level at which one would find in a five star hotel in a metro city. There are multiple restaurants in the hotel and each one specialises in its own way. The bar is well stocked and beautifully done up to entice a guest who spends time there. The rooms are beautiful and well laid out to make the stay comfortable, whether you are on an office trip or with your family.
There are facilities to ensure guests can meet all their requirements. Well located and decorated conference rooms and banquets halls ensure a feel that is at par with 5 star hotels in haldwani. The lavish lunch or dinner spread with specific requirements of the organiser can be a visual as well as taste treat. One could use the library to read up in the free time or move around in the scenic beauty. The travel desk can help create personalised itinerary to explore the area. The beddings and toiletries in the room are top class and classy. The rooms are decorated very well and give a comfortable luxury at an affordable price. The staff is very well trained and is eager to meet all the requirements that the gusts can have. The hotel management understands the requirements for different age groups and ensure that facilities for all are available. Hotel Blue Saphire is very well located and Pantnagar university or industrial towns of Rudrapur and Sitarganj are very conveniently located to ensure a perfect five star stay for guests.
