Radisson Blu and Park Inn Amritsar: Colourful Hotels In Punjab, India
Conveniently located one kilometre away from Amritsar’s Sri Guru Ram Das Jee International Airport, Radisson Blu Amritsar is a satisfying choice for business and leisure travellers looking for comfortable accommodation in Scoot’s new gateway to Punjab. The hotel’s location is far enough outside the city centre to provide a tranquil respite from urban congestion yet close enough to keep business appointments or enjoy the sights such as the beautiful Golden Temple, one of India’s most sacred religious sites. Radisson Blu offers complimentary shuttle services from the hotel to the Golden Temple area four times per day, including one pre-dawn service and one evening service for travellers to enjoy the morning and evening processions which signal the start and end to the day’s prayers. Both are mesmerising spectacles of colour, music, and faith.
Radisson Blu Amritsar offers a mix of room categories from singles to one-bedroom suites. The restaurant Tavolo Mondo provides buffet breakfast, lunch, and dinner with both Western and Indian food, giving international guests the chance to sample some of Punjab’s excellent cuisine which they may not be familiar with otherwise. Special food festivals occur throughout the year to showcase specific cuisines or styles of food preparation.
Located in the same complex is Park Inn by Radisson, another Carlson Rezidor brand providing a colourful alternative for accommodation in Amritsar. Park Inns are known for vibrant colours in their decor and the Amritsar property reiterates its link to the Radisson Blu by adding to the blue of the Amritsar sky and the hotel swimming pool with blue ceilings and blue furniture. Park Inn and Radisson Blu each have their own large swimming pools and fitness rooms.
Amritsar is not typically included on the itinerary of foreign visitors to India, but it provides a relaxed and insightful experience in a part of the country whose historic importance is integral to the Indian nation. Coordinating plans for travel can be a bit cumbersome, though, which is why the services of deluxe tour company Indian Vistas are a godsend to put arrangements in place with minimal fuss for the visitor. Indian Vistas can handle all the transport arrangements, including private car with driver for sightseeing with a guide in Amritsar and other cities. Train travel and flights can also be arranged for travel between cities.
Scoot operates Boeing 787 Dreamliner service four times a week nonstop between Singapore and Amritsar. Like Scoot, Indian Vistas considers the Australian market to be a very important one for tourism in India and owner Mona Kapoor enjoys working with Australians to make more visitors aware of India’s appeal. One of India’s leading tour companies in terms of exclusivity, Indian Vistas can set up a standard itinerary with India’s most famous sights, but the company is also adept at providing personalised experiences for visitors seeking specific themes and destinations for their trips.
