| Staycation at Jaypee Greens Golf and Spa Resort |
For a person who loves to travel but doesn’t get the time or opportunity to travel, I was super excited even for my staycation at Jaypee Greens Golf and Spa Resort. It is one of those places where you can head over to relax for the weekend and return to the city life rejuvenated. The resort is spread over 9 acres and is designed golfer Greg Norman. First thing that caught my eye was the beautiful hand-painted wall art at the reception.
We checked into our room and it had a minimal decor which was tastefully done. The room was pretty spacious with a study area, few chairs and couches next to the full glass windows and a big balcony looking over to the swimming pool. After settling into the room and relaxing for a bit, I headed over for the lunch buffet at Eggspectation, their 24-hour resto cafe. If you are a non vegetarian, you would be pretty disappointed with buffet as the lunch only has vegetarian options. The vegetarian options that were available, were not at all pleasing and most of them tasted similar and bland therefore I ended up having yellow daal and oven breads, the only options that tasted good out of the lot.
The beauty of this place is that you get see and enjoy the uninterrupted lush greens. You can get out of your room and go for an evening walk following the walking track just like I did. One can see the beautiful expanse of the Golf Course while walking and spot the numerous man-made lakes with water lilies blooming in it along the walking track.
After my little walk expedition, I dipped into the pool called Aquene. The pool side is beautifully done in shades of green, white and brown projecting the colors of nature into the decor. Palm trees surrounding the pool and the lounge chairs give it a beachy vibe. The pool has a in-built bar as well.
After the swim I decided to explore the resort a little more. Another thing that I discovered about Jaypee Greens Golf and Spa Resort is that it has beautiful green spaces here and there. While walking I came across this open space that had a floor chess, I couldn’t miss the chance to take a picture here.
I started my day 2 with a swim in Aquene. After the swim, I went for the breakfast buffet. To my surprise, the breakfast had non-vegetarian option. The blueberry Danish they had deserves a special mention. It was one of the best blueberry Danish that I had. The Resort has a bakery called Bakers Studio which has some amazing pastries, saviours as well as cakes.

The room had a super spacious wardrobe and I could literally fit in it. No wonder I had loads of fun dressing up each day.

The Resort is aptly named Jaypee Greens, they have incorporated bits of green beautifully almost everywhere. How cute are these planters with 3D birds?
Finally coming to the outfit. I did not have enough time to click my outfit on Day 1 but I made it a point to click my outfit for Day 2. I wore mustard yellow satin silk slip dress from Adagio and paired it with hand-painted Shakti jacket. I only accessory I wore was silver Afghani choker and I completed the look with velvet bow slides.
