I have been travelling to Bangalore quiet often on business and have stayed at the Alila for 4-5 times now. We have our corporate arrangements with a couple of hotels in and around the Whitefield area and that’s one of the reasons that I am inclined to write a review
The experience of Alila starts the moment you enter the hotel lobby and you are greeted with a welcome drink and a wet towel. Till date, I am unable to figure out what that drink is but I must say – it’s quiet refreshing and makes you lose all your fatigue that you got through your travel. The hosts at Alila are hospitable and within moments you are directed to your designated room.
The room – in my experience of travelling across India for business and leisure, is a completely different experience altogether. Alila offers all rooms with an attached balcony – could not find this option anywhere in Bangalore/ India so far. The Hotel is very close to the Varthur Lake and having the luxury of a balcony attached to the rooms adds to the scenic charm for the visitor. The weather in Bangalore adds to the indulgence.
From a dining perspective, I have had Breakfast and dinner at the hotel most of the times. The breakfast is decent but since I am a business traveler, who usually would spend a week at Bangalore, I feel that the complimentary breakfast has limited variety when it comes to changing menus. Of course you have the option of ordering separately, off the fixed menu but usually a business traveler avoids doing that. This has been the one off feedback that I have provided the hotel team, last I had been there. The in-room dining experience, especially after work during dinner time, has been very satisfactory. The dinner menu options are good and the service is quick – that’s what you want after a long day’s work at the office. I also took the opportunity to dine at their rooftop restaurants which was a unique and enchanting experience. Mostly on Fridays through Sunday, the hotel has promotions such as a Kabab Night etc. which is worth trying.
Overall, I recommend this hotel both from a business as well as Leisure travel perspective. Keep up the good work guys.

Room Tip: Ask the room that is facing the Varthur Lake . .You would definately enjoy standing in the Balcony.

This week I had the pleasure of staying at this hotel. The greeting was second to none, and the frozen towels and cool lemon drink during check-in was definitely welcomed! The hotel itself was stylish and very cool. There is no other place to stay in Bangalore

Stylish design. Great staff but usual Indian struggles to provide Western 5 star service (eg they ask if you what coffee then go outside and faff around forgetting your order). Best food in India (based on 8+ different 5 star hotels). Very comfy bed. Bathroom quite, erm, open plan. Cheeky balcony a nice addition although did not use it. Wife loved the spa. Poolside is nice but very noisy due to road. Lots of conferences / business dinners, so do not expect to have full use of facilities, parts are liable to be shut.

We were there to attend a wedding with our mates. The hotel is nice and decent. Stay was very enjoyable. Incase if i return to this city i will def stay here and would seek the attention by the Front Desk staff who really cares like their Guests. Incase you need anything JUST NEED TO CALL ROBIN AT FRONT DESK and it will be taken care off very promptly. He will arrange everything upon your departure.
