Well hello there :) as you might have noticed I’ve been doing my fair share of monsoon staycationing & travel so I thought I should perhaps share the bounty! Just last weekend we were invited to experience the expansive Deltin, Daman resort which is approximately a 3.5 hour drive from Bombay (or at least that’s how long it took us from Khar West!).

Daman & Diu is actually a union territory that you drive through Gujrat to access, but nobody panic! The luxury resort is far from dry, in fact they even have a Casino there that will be operational shortly! (Remember the Axe Boat Party? It happened aboard one of the Deltin’s sister concerns, the Deltin Royale which was equally awesome.) But for now lets go to Daman and I want to show you all the things that delighted me most!

1. Road Trips Are Awesome!

Also going on a road-trip triple date with some of your favourite people is priceless. That way you get some romantic time together with your boo…

AND you can also party it up with your peeps after dinner :) But more on that later…!

2. Yes The Pool Actually Looks Like This…!

And if that wasn’t enough there’s a second private pool in the back and little dipper on the side :)

Plus there’s The Poolside Bar (Bar and Mediterranean style Grill and Barbecue). Sold!

In fact, the whole Deltin property is MASSIVE with the casino theme echoing throughout.

The superior rooms were absolutely luxurious! High ceilings, lots of space around the comfiest bed and a view of the pool to drink coffee by and watch the monsoon outside!

Seriously, The Emperor Restaurant (Chinese Cuisine) goes down as one of the coolest dining experiences I’ve had in a long time!

The Deltin spa was fantastic. Definite highlight of the trip. All six of us gave the spa a double thumbs up and various oohs and aahs!

I just tried the 30 minute foot massage but even that was utterly epic! The crew that tried the back and head massages gave therapists Kimmy and Anjum a special mention too.

I love towel art (I mean, who doesn’t? Remember these towel bunnies in Koh Samui) Well on the same trip I saw a towel elephant that made me think THIS was an elephant too….

However it turns out it was a turtle BUT my friend Devraj convinced me it was a little towel man bending over and… then I couldn’t stop laughing for days! LOL.
