It was just an accident that I had to stay over in Mysore for a night. And after having decided that I spend a night, then thought " why not get pampered", as it is going to be an accidental break. After reviewing the reviews, I decided to try this place. And, how nice, it turned out to be. I booked myself a Club Category room and went in with a lot of expectations, result of my great experience at Fortune Select Regina, Goa. And I can only say this was a "great experience". As always my practice, as I get very attached with great place and service, I overstayed. This place offers a feel of the Old Mysore Palace kind of setting but with contemporary amenities. The breakfast options, which for a guest is well beyond expectations(as with any Fortune breakfasts) but as a foodie myself would expect a little (very little more of the traditional Karnataka Stuff) which are more native. But their bisibelabath and Mysore Masala dosas are things to die for. It was an unusual experience for me to see bisibelabath for breakfast as we consider this as a lunch item, but my enquiries revealed that it is a practice in that part. Breakfast over, then what... It was obviously the great Bali Spa. Very honestly, I, personally am not a spa person. But, this place blew me off. Great services and a very very relaxing experience. So the day travels and it is lunch time. Why not Oriental cuisine and it was real good and not to regret my choice. But what took all the points earned very slowly through the day was their Terrace & Grill roof top. With the great views of the Chamundi Hills and the nice weather, not that you want anything else but the smooth cocktails made perfectly to your taste and the awesome live sea food fare, grilled to your taste and mood. This setting made me feel the night shouldn't end. What great way to spend an evening. Great wines and even more great bbqs and what on earth can I expect more. Now, people would understand the reason for my overstay. The service was also very non intruding and get what you want kind, very very professional. Mysore is a leisure destination but this place is leisure multiplied. If you are looking at ideally relaxing and want the best things, try this place once.
Fortune JP... You won my heart... Eagerly waiting for my next reason to cross Mysore territory to find an excuse to touch base with you again... Great place, greater food and a greatest roof top and the cherry is the staff attitude... I am not able to find a reason to complain, so sad. An experience by itself... Thanks guys, for making it so good, my stay was awesome and one of the best in my travel life.
