The Koregaon Park marked the other day of my visit. I heard of the place in my college days and was very keen to have a look at it. I saw the images of the park in the internet. But looking at it lively gives a somewhat different feeling. On reaching the spot I was left amazed. I understood why people addressed it to be prestigious. There was no question in it.
If it was known to me that the Koregaon Park is situated only four kilometers from the railway station, I would have gone straight there instead of going to the hotel. It was a wonderful park. Previously the place was a residential area of full greenery around but now the place has become a commercial market place.
There is more to know about the place. The park has two major roads. The North Main Road lies in the north of the Koregaon Park. It runs parallel to the South Main Road, which is located to the south of the park. These two major roads are again connected to each other by link roads. The park is connected to the neighborhood, Kalyani Nagar, via the Aga Khan Bridge. Even the park has found passage to Mundhawa and Magarpatta by recently constructed roads.
It was more amazing to see that the neighborhood had a school and a home for the blind located at the North Main Road. The park had all arrangements for dining. There was the famous German Bakery, Chabad house, Osho Ashram, and Bund Garden. It also has a well-equipped multi-specialty hospital. I was very pleased to see this.
I had a nice meal at the dining. If I had all the energy restored inside me, then I would have definitely stayed there for a longer period. The place had many more things to be discovered and relished. I was fully satisfied to have spent the day in the park. It was quite peaceful and mesmerizing. My journey to Pune was beginning to pay off from the first day itself.
I came back to the hotel room and went to bed dreaming about my journey ahead.

After a journey of nineteen hours, I reached Pune, the city of surprises. I had booked the deluxe room in the Corinthians Resort and Club through the resort booking app on my mobile phone. This is a five-star hotel located amidst the beautiful rolling hills of South Pune in Nyati County, near NIBM. It is a boutique hotel, which stands twenty five minutes away from the Pune Airport. I was greatly surprised by the natural settings of the resort.
After getting completely freshened up, I decided to have a visit to the city. Then, I thought that the resort can be the first place where I can start with. I moved around the club and discovered the wide variety of exquisiteness inside it.
The hotel has conference halls called the Grand Ballroom, which could accommodate a total of 1000 people. Another hall called the Alexandria could accommodate around 200 people. There is Garden Lawn ‘Colosseum’ used by the folks to perform stage shows, product launches, weddings, concerts, etc. There is a beautiful Patio, an open air Garden Terrace. People gathered over there and have a time spent with others getting to know each other.
I went a little further and found that the hotel had recreational facilities like Spa offering various health treatments, jogging tracks. Well, I did not lose any chance. The upper floors of the hotel were yet to be discovered. Hence, I hurried to the top floors and got to know that the resort cum club offered a wide variety of indoor games, which included cards, billiards, table tennis, carom, etc., and even outdoor games like tennis, cricket, basket ball, and volley ball.
After wandering around the hotel I was very hungry. I went to the food and drinks section of the club. There was a complete list of different tastes. The Pyramsia and the Bacchus were the specifications on that day. Pyramsia offered Chinese, Continental, and Indian delicacies. I preferred the Bacchus. It was an ideal hangout place for youngsters as well as adults for it had a cool and cozy décor. Moreover, there was Oceanus to make your evenings more relaxing and comfortable. The Salsa added some more to the taste buds.
Do you believe that I spent the whole day capturing the photos of the Corinthians Resort and Club itself? I wonder if the club and resort are so beautiful, then what else is waiting for me.
