“Attended wedding”
Reviewed October 16, 2013

Went over to attend a wedding yesterday.
The decoration was neat, although I am not sure if it was Alankrita’s responsibility.
Food was very good. The wedding was solemnized at the lawns area and the food was served at the other end of the lawns.
I noticed that waiter was taking on the phone while serving food though, so major NO-NO at the hospitality industry. Although a buffet, tables were laid on the lawns for the guest to sit and eat, soups and cup-cakes were served at the tables and the tables were regularly being cleared. So, all in all – a pretty good (wedding) time

Aalankrita resorts is located in Sharmipet village which is in outskirts of Hyderabad. It is styled on Rajasthan.

The resort is very peaceful and generally one can find corporate offsite events/conferences during weekdays. I heard that it is very famous amongst local honeymooners.

I was here to attend a two day offsite event and wasn't disappointed. My room was booked in the building above 'Atiroopa' restaurant. it was located on second floor and was fine with comfortable mattress and all other amenities.

They have many recreational activities and kept it open for us until midnight which we enjoyed after dinner. We played cricket in the ground and it was good fun as the hotel staff also arranged for drinks table alongside.

We had breakfasts, lunch, and dinner in Atiroopa and Deera restaurants and I found it of good quality although there were limited options for Westerners.

I think it was a good trip. The resort is definitely better than Lahari resort but stands smaller than Leonia resort that is in near vicinity to it.

Room Tip: If you are choosing to stay in Atiroopa, make sure that your room is on second floor and away from k...

Aalankrita resort remains as one of the best in Hyderabad...very economical with lots of offer in plate...the place is big enough to spend an entire day...corporate parties can be held with ease...only the swimming pool is bit small.

Overall a very good place...Thumbs-Up

Having stayed in Hyderabad, have visited Aalankrita quite a few times.

The place is a little far off from airport- around 50-60 kms, but then that's what one is looking forward to when they are visiting a resort- calm, secluded locations.

The staff is helpful, but as the rooms are far off from the reception and main office, response time on any service requested is very long.

The grounds are very very well maintained, you would thoroughly enjoy the sceneries created.
However, rooms are very oddly built and anyone walking by can hear your conversation well, the window gives clear view of room's inside too and has to be kept shut at all times. The décor is minimal and most furnishing needs replacement.

The food is good, and served inside the restaurant at night and open area during day time.

Do not miss the spa service while you are there, they might also give you good discounts if you are on business trip and present your card.

Room Tip: There are some rooms in the main tower too, but ask for the hut type ones if you are looking for a...

I spent several days in downtown Hyderabad and was looking forward to getting away from the traffic, noise and congestion while visiting Aalankrita. First, let me say the grounds and quite well maintained - the outdoor common areas were quite beautiful.

The rooms, however, were disappointing - doors not sealed, staff walking past first floor windows (must have been some back shortcut to somewhere), beds, linens, bathrooms all were "aged" at best. Example: the shower door was almost non-functioning and we really did need a map of what switches controlled what. Hot water was provided via a switch outside the restroom. Air conditioner was not working but two young men literally replaced the power unit (on the floor next to a bed) while I watched.

The food and preparation was good but didn't seem as controlled as back home - but perhaps that's the standard in this country. Outdoor dining was a challenge due to insects.

We had light rain off and on during our stay (this added to the humidity and the need for air conditioning) but as is common in India, power outages fed the uncomfortable feeling of the room.

I do need to stress that walking the grounds is a beautiful experience. I didn't take advantage of the pool area. While there be sure to spend some time enjoying the surroundings.

Would I stay there again? I likely would. There may be other "resorts" in the same general area and I will look around and compare in the future.

Poistives : Beautiful ambience , the " antique " décor , well maintained gardens and greenery all round .Excellent Lunch and dinner
Improvement areas : Bed linen was not well maintained - lacked a crisp, clean look . Hygiene standards across all restaurants need significant improvement . All outdoor restaurants are teeming with flies. Breakfast quality needs improvement -e.g insipid tea . Overall service levels can do with improvement
Suggestions : The fixed menu option leads to a high food wastage as the portions are large . Convert this to a buffet to avoid food wastage .
