On landing at the Guwahati Airport, we were spell bound with the serene and tranquil ambience. We found that life in this city is extremely peaceful and smooth in comparison to what we lead in Ahmedabad. We were a bit tired due to the jet lag and so we hired an AC cab to head straight to the hotel we had booked online. We reached The Residency Tourist Resort Guwahati in no time and were welcome warmly in traditional north eastern style.
It is located in front of the Assam Secretariat at a distance of 23 km from the Lokpriya Gopinath Bordoloi Airport. It offers conference as well as banquet facilities and boasts of lush green lawns and huge parking space with an ability to house around 100 guests at a time. We were amazed with the elegance and charm of the serene atmosphere created in the lap of Mother Nature. The weather was extremely cool and enabled us to get rid of the tiredness easily. We had booked a residency suite for ourselves as we didn’t want to compromise with luxury.
The staff members were extremely friendly and made sure that we didn’t face any kind of problem. We were very impressed with their professional attitude and the high standards of hospitality offered by the hotel. Some of the members of the hotel told us that they are planning ways of expanding the hotel and setting a new benchmark in terms of quality. One can easily select from four different types of rooms such as Residency Suite, Corporate Suite, executive club rooms and executive rooms.
One of the best things about the resort is that it gives more preference to quality rather than quantity. It is due to this reason that it has just 10 rooms but each one of them is bound to blow your mind. We came to know that the check in and check out time of the hotel is at 12PM but since we had booked online, they relaxed their rules and did the needful. Our room was equipped with intercom, mini bar, LCD TV, coffee or tea maker.
