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.
