Guests can enjoy and experience the strong local connection of Mysuru and Karnataka’s culture and heritage. The vibrant interior décor gives one a taste of the celebrated Royalty of Mysuru in a whole new contemporary way. Right from Wall pictures, to Royal room carpet, to local art on display, to Toys of Channapatna, all create that magical vibe and gives that local flavour to the hotel.

Inspired by Mysuru’s rich culinary legacy, guests can feast on an extensive selection of cuisines at the hotel.  La Uppu serves an eclectic mix of global cuisine and local delicacies, is an all-day-dining multi-cuisine restaurant with an option of indoor and al-fresco seating.
We tried Pizza and Biryani here and it was amazing.

By the blue, the rooftop specialty restaurant which overlooks the pool and has amazing view of Mysore city, serves Northern Indian cuisine. 

Silk Bar, by its name narrates the story of the famous silk in Mysuru and serves a mix of single malts, cocktails, mocktails, spirits and wines; and Deli Shop, a delicatessen at the lobby, serves the finest bakery and confectionery creations by talented chefs paired with an array of Indian coffees.  

The hotel also features amenities like a gym equipped with the latest equipment, a terrace pool, kids play area and a spa to rejuvenate the mind and body.

After tour of Hotel we went to our rooms to get some rest.

I must say, Hotel rooms were comfy and they have kept tradition on Mysore incorporated in the rooms as well in the form of carpet which depict inlay work and wall design.
They also kept few Channapatna Toys as souvenirs in rooms
Being a Travel Blogger I loved the localization which they have done to include heritage into each aspect of decor.
