My last stop in India was Chennai. I decided to try a few different areas since I’d be staying for the whole week and found the Ascott properties well suited to my needs, for the fact that I could do a home-like stay with the ability to cook, wash and catch up on some work, which was much needed after my months of traveling!
My first stop was Somerset Greenways Chennai.
The demographic was definitely business but with the flexibility of being catered to families as well – think long stay business where you can bring your family along.
I found Somerset Greenways Chennai to be quite a large property and the amenities extremely well-equipped, due to the demographic, most the time I had them all to myself, which was a welcomed change!
The amenities included:
A large gym
Rooftop Pool/Spa/Lounging area
And of course…
The luxurious lobby to greet you.
My favourite feature of Somerset Greenways was sunrise on the rooftop infinity pool! There’s something so magical about feeling like you’re the first awake overlooking what is usually a bustling city.
Coming a close second would definitely be the friendliness of the Chef – who let me go back and watch as he prepared a traditional southern-India dish and I found him to be extremely open and well-welcoming, things like that I find always makes the food taste even better! He even prepared a special display of breads and pastries on my first morning at the breakfast buffet!
The rooms were all equipped with laundry machines, full kitchens and mine in particular had a beautiful balcony area to lounge and enjoy my morning espresso! Not to mention the beds are “sink-in-amazing”
Lastly, I was able to check out Somerset Greenways newest addition whilst staying – the smart rooms! Almost everything can be controlled via tablet as well as a voice command TV to ask things like the weather or fun things to do around the city – it’s very interactive.
I believe Somerset Greenways Chennai is definitely doing their best to cater to the masses and find something to fit everyone’s needs. The location was central and as you can see, just in case you don’t want to leave, you have absolutely everything you need right here – and then some!
