Connoisseur Club offers a royal experience at The Leela Palace Bengaluru

I have always wanted to pamper my parents, how they pampered us, if not always, at least on the big day, their Anniversary!!

I have always wanted to pamper my parents, how they pampered us, if not always, at least on the big day, their Anniversary!! I never felt satisfied with what I’ve gifted them because it’s no different from what I do usually, as the options are limited to conventional gifts like flowers, cards or dinners.

I was looking for the perfect gift which would truly surprise and overwhelm my parents and that’s when my friend suggested the Connoisseur Club membership from The Leela Palace Bengaluru where she’s a member. She recommended Connoisseur Club by saying that “It’s a complete package worth every penny”.

I quickly researched the Connoisseur Club membership and I have to say it was an ideal gift for my parents and they could do all they ever wanted with the membership. The Platinum Level membership caught my attention in particular, I felt like it was crafted just for my needs. Off all the variants the membership offered, Platinum Level was the most indulgent and high value membership.

The membership kit arrived at my doorstep within a few days, ready to be gifted to my parents. My membership was so well packaged that it exuded elegance and class, it was perfect to be gifted as it is.

It’s a delight to hear my parents talk about The Leela Palace Bengaluru and their savings courtesy Connoisseur Club. My parents’ most recent experience with Connoisseur Club is their two night stay in a suite at The Leela Palace Bengaluru. They were immensely impressed with the hotel façade drawing inspiration from the architectural style of the Royal Palace of Mysore, and exclusive access to the Club Lounge, which enabled them to enjoy multiple rounds of drinks and snacks at the Club Lounge and exploit their taste for whiskey sour each evening they stayed at the hotel.

On their second day at the hotel, we invited friends and family to surprise them, we were a total of 8 people on a table at Zen, the Pan Asian restaurant and guess what, just because my parent’s were now members we got a 50% discount over a sumptuous brunch with alcohol. A discount of this capacity was almost unheard of to most of us on that table!

My parents were very pleased and said this was one of the best experiences of their life. I totally agree with them, they did all that they wanted to do immersed in royalty and luxury while saving big bucks. I’m sure that they’ve already managed to save INR 30,000 or more due to this membership.

Since it’s a year long membership, we look forward to visit The Leela Palace Bengaluru again and again to experience it all! This is just the beginning; I would love to try the other Leela properties too.

Wine Dinner at The Leela Mumbai

The Leela takes its wine seriously. Every other month my mail box is graced with an invite to one of their four course wine or whisky dinners. Recently I stumbled upon an invite to the Chateau Timberlay Wine Dinner at Le Cirque and I reserved a spot for myself. The dinner was priced at 5,500 + taxes for walk-in guests and a discounted price of 4,500 was applicable for all Connoisseur Club members. I was glad to know about the special price for membership holders since events like these are usually extremely exclusive and do not honour discounts.

I was no stranger to Le Cirque, Mumbai. I had relished their Franco – Italian cuisine many a times and always looked forward to special occasions to experience their menu again.

This time around the dinner service was an epicurean adventure spread over five courses of sumptuousness. It was an evening of exquisite wines from the House of Chateau Timberlay paired with a carefully curated food menu by Lorenzo Severeni, Le Cirque’s Head Chef. Staring with delicately flavoured lighter wines, the evening dinner progressed to more intense and bold flavours.

The wine dinner was a phenomenal experience! I got to learn a lot about wine in general and its pairing with food. If it wasn’t for my Connoisseur Club membership, I wouldn’t have ever thought of reserving a table for a wine dinner and would’ve missed a delightful experience. Wine dinner at The Leela is a must for all wine lovers.

Try and get a membership to the Connoisseur Club for invites to similar exclusive events and offers on dining and accommodation. Connoisseur Club at The Leela Mumbai comes with up to a 50% off on food, 15% at the Spa, complimentary meals, cake, wine and room stays.

Shopping and Staycation with Connoisseur Club

Retail therapy is the real deal for me and my standard stop is the Ambience Mall in the heart of Gurugram.

Retail therapy is the real deal for me and my standard stop is the Ambience Mall in the heart of Gurugram. On one of my shopping trips, I stepped into Spectra at The Leela Ambience Gurugram Hotel for lunch with a friend. We thoroughly enjoyed the extravagant buffet with a choice of cuisine for each. On my way out, I crossed paths with a Leela executive who told me about the Connoisseur Club membership. It seemed so attractive that I got it immediately and have never regretted it ever since. Now it is the most important card in my wallet, almost as important as my credit cards.

The most attractive bit of the membership are the suite night stays built into the Platinum Level. You can use these one at a time and I have used up all the three certificates, enjoying the super luxury of a suite at the hotel, dining discounts at Spectra and the walk straight into the Ambience Mall. For the ones who don’t know, the hotel and the Mall are a part of the same complex. In addition to the dining and accommodation certificates, I ended up using the spa benefit of the membership at the hotel as well.

Now it is the most important card in my wallet, almost as important as my credit cards.

The membership has more to offer at the lovely Leela hotels in Udaipur, Goa or Kovalam and if you want a city experience then of course the stunning Leela Palace hotels at Bangalore and Chennai. What’s even better is that the card works for dining discounts at the Leela hotel in East Delhi as well, a place I end up going to every couple of months. Highly recommended if you wish to lift your lifestyle with The Leela Hotels.

Connoisseur Club from The Leela Palaces, Hotels and Resorts

The Leela has a range of award-winning properties that celebrate the country’s diverse geography and rich architectural history. Their luxury palaces, hotels and resorts are present in Mumbai, Bengaluru, Kovalam, Gurugram, Delhi and India’s magical holiday destinations of Goa and Udaipur. In many ways, The Leela has redefined gourmet food, luxurious stays and indulgent living.

Hand crafted menus across restaurants at Leela hotels spell culinary excellence. With a selection of restaurants like Jamavar, The Great Wall, Citrus, Spectra and others, The Leela offers the best in dining. While Jamavar brings royal culinary traditions to the city, Spectra and Citrus bring to you the best of global cuisine.

Connoisseur Club offers undeniably good discounts on food and drinks, up to a 50% off on dining and a 15% on beverages across the hotels.

My company got for me and some of my colleagues a Connoisseur Club membership as we were regular visitors to the corporate hubs of Delhi, Mumbai and Bengaluru. The company felt that using the membership would lead to corporate savings on dining and living and indeed it did!

Connoisseur Club offers undeniably good discounts on food and drinks, up to a 50% off on dining and a 15% on beverages across the hotels in these three business hubs. More so, each time I booked my hotel room, I got a discount on the Best Available Rate on accommodation. Group dining certificates and others added to a reduction in our business expense as well.

The best part was that the membership came with a free room night stay in my city, which of course I could use as a personal gift from the company. I took advantage of the same to go stay at The Leela in Gurugram with my family. During our stay we conveniently shopped at the adjoining Ambience Mall and later dined at some of the finest restaurants in Gurugram at The Leela. Skimming through the vouchers made me notice the discounts offered on lifestyle services and got me to try the Spa which was truly rejuvenating. This membership really indulges you to experience the magnificence of the Leela hotels. The membership also comes with a spouse card at no extra charge.

If you’re a fan of beautiful locations and world class service at a reasonable value, go ahead and get this membership or try your luck and nudge your company to get one for you.
