Cygnett Park Asia
Jammu City, India
If you are looking for a luxurious stay in Jammu city, Hotel Cygnett Park Asia should be your first choice. Although I admired this hotel from my college days, I got a chance to stay here recently when I went to my hometown for a cousin’s wedding. This was a last minute booking we made online. When we called the hotel reception, they were more than happy to assign us the preferred room.
About Cygnett Park Asia
Cygnett Park Asia is a part of the leading chain of Cygnett hotels – a young and progressive hotel management company in India. Known for their unparalleled hospitality and excellent guest experience, they are dedicated to make your stay worth remembering. The hotel is located in the Gandhi Nagar area of Jammu city which is a prime location and not too far from the main attractions of the city. Although it’s a high traffic area, you don’t feel much of the traffic vibe inside the hotel rooms until you peep out of the window for some nice city views.
The first thing I noticed as I entered the hotel was their lobby that was tastefully decorated. The bright red seatings blended perfectly with the warm earthly colours. The chandelier, the dim lights and the green plants around added to the aesthetic sense of the decor.
My trip was with my mom and brother and we opted for their Club Twin room. The room was clean, cozy and well equipped with basic amenities including water bottles, a free in-room pantry and an electric kettle for preparing tea/coffee. There was a mini bar as well, however, it was empty. I guessed it was for keeping your drinks chilled. We did’t feel the need to use it though.
The room was also equipped with a nice and cozy double bed. As we were three guests, they provided an additional single bed that was equally cozy.
The two lounge chairs were perfect for having my cup of coffee while peeping through the window and cherishing some old memories.
The room also had a television for entertainment and a study corner for those thoughtful writings.
The modern interiors of the attached washroom included a shower partition, makeup mirror, hair dryer, clean towels and toiletries. The washroom was clean and smelled nice. The Hotel also offers free Wi-Fi to its guests.
View From The Room
The room offered a nice view of the city’s skyline. It was raining that day and I really loved the fresh view outside. Since it’s a high traffic city area, you can’t expect great views here. However, since it’s my home town and I have my dearest memories attached to the place, I loved looking outside the window and contemplating on those memories.
Cygnett Park Asia had two restaurants – Yangtse and Cygnett Pavilion. Our buffet breakfast was served at the Yangtse. It was a pool facing restaurant with beautiful Chinese decor. Again, I was impressed with the blend of red with the earthly colours. I liked the bright red Chinese lanterns hanging from the ceiling and the view of the pool.
The Buffet Breakfast
For the buffet breakfast, we were spoilt for choices. From the healthier options of fruits, cornflakes, eggs, sprouts, sausages and cold cuts to the variety of breads including muffins, Danish pastry and banana bread to North Indian and South Indian dishes to juices, tea, coffee, milk, buttermilk and Indian sweet ‘gulab jamun’ – you’ll find everything you need for a hearty meal. The foodie in me absolutely loved it! Yangtse offers the best Chinese cuisine in the city. Some of my friends have tried that, so that’s an add on from them. I didn’t get a chance to taste their Chinese food though.
The hospitality of the staff was commendable. They were polite, cordial and always on their toes to help us. Their check-in process was smooth and quick -didn’t take more than 10 mins. The in-room service was quick and perfect. We could actually feel the service and hospitality was heartfelt. They had a travel helpdesk as well where you can book a taxi anytime. Although I found the price of their taxi service a little higher than the local ones, but sometimes it’s worth it when you need the conveyance at odd hours or probably real quick.
Cygnett Park Asia comprises of many opulent rooms and suites with a view of city’s skyline. There’s a gym with latest fitness equipments, two restaurants with a choice of Indian, Chinese and Oriental cuisines, a bar, a pool area and multiple halls and lawns for banquets, parties and meetings.
