We’ve said it before, but we’re going to state the obvious once again – 2020 was a rough year, and well into 2021, we’re still reeling from its effects. After having spent so much time locked up indoors, with cabin fever all around, we could all use a much needed break. Our say? It’s about time you opted for a luxurious staycation. With room service, preferably. And champagne. Lots of it. Being at home can be stressful, and let’s face it – we could all use a little R&R in our lives, right about now. And the one place that’s got our attention for their staycations? Trident Hotels.
Now, I know what you’re thinking. Is a staycation in the time of COVID really the best idea? We’d say, yes. Trident Hotels provide comfortable and hygienic accommodations and follow all necessary precautions provided by the World Health Organisation, along with guidelines by the Ministry of Tourism to ensure your wellbeing. All Trident Hotels are using contactless technology; at check-in and check out, in the restaurants and the guests’ rooms. There is a QR code display in all hotel cars, and a contactless dining option is available in the restaurants. And don’t even think for a second that this means compromising on luxury.
With Trident staycations at Trident, Nariman Point, Mumbai; Trident, Bandra Kurla, Mumbai; Trident, Gurgaon and Trident Hyderabad, you’re definitely spoilt for choice. Here are our top picks for the perfect getaway that you and your significant other deserve:
Trident Nariman Point, Mumbai
Besides the breathtaking view, Trident, Nariman Point, offers spacious and well-appointed, ocean view rooms and suites. This V-Day, check out their award-winning Asian restaurant, India Jones, which showcases authentic recipes from the Far-East, with a special Dim-sum menu, or check out The Verandah café, which is the perfect way to savour an afternoon tea experience.

Trident, Bandra Kurla
With a lounge bar, a wine library and one of the best patisseries in the city, the Trident at Bandra Kurla Complex is the ideal way to get away for the weekend. Offering a wide range of cuisines; from Italian to Japanese, Indian to Continental, the hotel’s award-winning restaurants serve the very best of international flavours. And here’s the best part – the hotel just made grand, romantic gestures much easier, with their service ‘Dine Under the Stars’. Prepare to have your idealistic versions of a date night come to life, as the hotel provides an enchanting poolside candlelight dinner, with an exclusively curated four-course degustation menu, accompanied of course, with champagne. And the partner of the year award goes to…
Set in an expanse of seven beautifully landscaped acres, Trident, Gurgaon has an imposing yet serene presence, with a resort-like ambience. After checking in, enjoy your date nights in style, at the hotel’s fine-dining restaurants – Cilantro, which offers delicacies from Italian, Mediterranean, South-East Asian and Indian cuisine, and Saffron, which needs to be your go-to for authentic regional Indian dining. And while a quick drink at The Bar is always a must, we suggest you take the R&R one step further – by getting a signature massage at Trident Signature. Couples massages, anyone?
Located in the centre of the HITEC City and close to the Special Economic Zone, Trident, Hyderabad is well connected with the what’s-hot locations in the city. And while the city is pulsating with new life, we suggest you take things a little old-school and try the authentic cuisine at Kanak, their award-winning Indian restaurant, where chefs prepare regional delights inspired by the recipes from the Nizams’ kitchens. If your date’s in the mood for some good ol’ Italian food, impress them by taking them to Tuscany, a restaurant that offers delights from this gourmet Italian province, including pizzas, grills and fresh handmade pasta. Top off your meal with a drink at Ninety Six, the Bar and the Cigar Lounge are perfect for a relaxed evening and enjoy your staycation in style.
