My Favourite Way to Spend Christmas

It’s that time of the year again, my favourite time, my favourite Festive Season, Christmas!

Everyone has a plan for Christmas, restaurants, bars, Clubs and Hotels, each one trying to outdo the other.

While I like looking for a new fun plan for New Years each year, I have the same standard plan for Christmas each year.

The Classic Christmas Brunch by the Poolside. 

I love to have a delicious leisurely meal alongside wine and great music.

Wein und Käse

Leela has always been my favourite in terms of attention to detail and serving meals appropriate to the occasion and year after year, the hotel has NEVER disappointed!

If you have no idea what I’m talking about, it’s high time you find out!

I very genuinely and very very seriously recommend the Christmas Brunch at the Leela, Mumbai to all my readers, friends and family!

In case 25th doesn’t work for you, they have a host of other events coming up this month, check them out here and make your reservations before time runs out!
