The Hotel Blue Diamond, at one time the best in Pune, has changed from being leisurely laid back place to a contemporary Hotel Taj Vivanta.
Location of the Hotel is very good with the airport, railway station and M G Road not very far away. The lobby is nice but a little narrow compared to the grand earlier lobby.
Rooms of the hotel are standard Taj rooms - absolutely clean, with thought given to providing necessary amenities and accessories. Typical large mirrors to give a feeling of a large room.
Restaurants are excellent - could not get enough of Mystic Masala even after 3 visits, though the food is heavy. One must try the different thalis for lunch, and for a la carte food during dinner. I feel that mood of the audience should be gauged whether deciding to play a live singer, as this obstructs easy conversation (one has to speak very loudly).
Latitude offers very good buffet options and is open 24 X 7. The Whispering Bamboo offers some light thai food in case one is interested in light food. The cake shop near the entrance is surely one place to stop for some good chocolate cake, and then one can go for a swim in the swimming pool (aqua lights at night) which is quite large.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Explore the space that's right in the heart of Pune's business and entertainment areas. Just 5 km from the airport and 2 km from the nearest railway station. Drive in the Vivanta by Taj car delighting in backseat surprises (we're not revealing here). On arrival check out the soaring glass, fan shaped entry canopy cantilevered 25 feet above a sparkling new water feature. ... more less
