The spectacular Alcove complex in Koramangala is a seriously indulgent retreat in the heart of Bangalore. It conjures up flavours of the Keralan Backwaters, here in the landlocked capital of Karnataka.
These chic, modern serviced apartments are well-designed, fully furnished and tastefully decorated. The neutral palette adhered to throughout keeps each and every apartment cool and bright. Through the double doors at the end of the living room, guests can access their large, private balcony. From here guests can take in the Alcove’s impressive courtyard; a lush green maze of pagodas and gardens and its shimmering centerpiece, an inviting guest swimming pool.
Apartments have a full kitchen including a refrigerator, microwave, toaster, coffee maker, gas hob with extractor fan, cutlery, crockery and utensils. Air conditioning, complimentary Wi-Fi and laundry facilities all come as standard. Attractive bedrooms have comfortable queen size beds.
The housekeeping service is offered free of charge six days a week with the option to change towels and linens every other visit. Guests will receive a daily newspaper and mineral water courtesy of the Alcove.
To complete the outstanding offering guests are invited to make use of the covered car park, Club House and dedicated chef. The 24-hour reception team provide round-the-clock security and can arrange taxis on guests’ behalf. The on-site gym is also available to guests for an additional fee.
Koramangala overall is well-planned and leafy. With its wide tree-lined boulevards the region feels lush and young when compared to many of its neighbours.
The immediate locale is peppered with shopping malls, department stores and restaurants within walking distance. Surrounded by prestigious institutes such as the Vemana Institute of Technology, Amity Global Business School and the Indian Institute of Astrophysics; guests at the Alcove are in good company.
The central location in south-eastern Bangalore puts guests at the heart of the robust transport network that keeps the city moving. Guests that are planning to commute during their stay should be encouraged by the true interconnectedness of this bustling metropolis.
While the nearby restaurants and cafes are well-liked, we’d recommend a trip north to Indiranagar’s 100 Foot Road during your stay. It’s a thriving hotbed of global flavours, cool late-night bars and Bangalore’s most wanted fashion outlets. Aptly named ‘100 ft.’ brings the taste and slow pace of the Mediterranean to uptown Bangalore. It’s unique set-up and multiple al fresco options plus a superbly executed menu make this place hugely popular. Closer to home don’t miss out on the impressive roof terrace at Barleyz Microbrewery on the Intermediate Ring Road, Koramangala.
