I recently had the chance to visit a property from OYO Hotels & Homes located in Manesar called “OYO Home 35520 Exotic Farms”. OYO Homes are unique beautiful homes present in great locations that are fully managed by OYO and make a perfect choice for staycations. We especially loved this since it catered to travelers who are looking for home-like comfort and privacy during their stay. Homes like such are perfect weekend getaways for families, friends and couples who are looking forward to unwinding.
We began our journey from Ghaziabad around 10 am in the morning as our official check-in was at 12noon. Since it was a Saturday the cab driver reached our home on time. Luckily we weren’t held up in traffic owing it being a weekend and managed to reach the property around 1:00 pm. The long drive was exhausting and we just couldn’t wait to reach the farmhouse and relax. This home is located in the outskirts of the city hence reaching here will take some time. Do brace yourself as it may be a bumpy ride when you are closer to your destination. It’s recommended to call the reception and give them a heads-up so that they can assist you as soon as you cross the Manesar Toll. Following Google Maps, could be slightly confusing as it’s a new property and moreover located in a rural area.
As soon as we entered OYO Home 35520 Exotic Farms, we were warmly welcomed by the farmhouse staff and escorted towards our rooms. We were four people (Me, My husband, my Mom in law and my Father in law) along with my kid, so they gave us adjoining rooms with a common dining area What’s more, we also had a huge garden area outside our rooms for any outdoor activities that we would have liked to indulge in! The property is true to its name, it’s exclusive, exotic.
In a while, their staff member came to take the order for lunch. The property serves both Vegetarian & Non-Vegetarian food to the guests. We ordered our lunch and had it taking our time over conversations. Everybody enjoyed the meal; it was more like a Ghar ka khana, fresh and tasty. After filling up our tummies, we decided to rest and settle down for a while.
However, the explorer in me couldn’t wait for long, so I relaxed for an hour, changed quickly and went down to see more of this place.
I sat outside on a khatiya and relaxed in the fresh air away from the hustle of our daily lives. Sometimes you really need ME time, away from your every day’s cluttered lifestyle. Personal times like such actually help you to recharge quite well. I didn’t realize how time passed and my little pumpkin woke up and asked me to play along with her. We then spent some good time participating in outdoor activities in the garden area; we even played with swings and spent some good time on the trampoline.
The cook soon came to serve us with some snacks which included some Pakoras and my favorite Chai. We finished our evening snacks by 7 pm and then went straight to our rooms for a short nap and in the meantime my little pumpkin enjoyed her coloring activity. Around 8 or 8:30 pm, the cook came to collect our order for the dinner.
The dinner was served around 9:00 pm, after which we requested for a glass of milk for each one of us. The milk was pure (Desi). We had a great meal which was sufficient to make us all sleep well for the whole night.
We woke up around 7:00 am as I personally wanted to see the whole farm, which I couldn’t manage to see during the previous evening. They have a huge vegetable farm in the backyard, we went there and even collected some veggies for our home 😉
The property also has a conference room for business meetings or huge gatherings, so even business trips can be planned at this property with ease. We then spent some good time with rabbits outside; My Matku enjoyed feeding them a lot. However, I literally had to drag my matku out from that sight. Thanks to Mr Sanjeev who then took us to show some fishes which they have kept in the pond located at the backyard of the farm.
We then got fresh an up and enjoyed our breakfast around around 11:00 am, and we then checked out from this beautiful OYO Homes Property.
What I loved about visiting such a place like OYO Homes was that it helped us unwind and allowed me and my family spend quality time. This is a one of its kind home away from home that has the authentic local culture through its design and feel. These self-serviced apartments give you the exact look and feel of a village having mud-like walls, colored windows with bamboo blinds and other such stuff. In whole, it was a great trip along with loads of memories. My Mom in Law still talks about that trip a lot, she even has asked some of her friends to visit this property and so did I.
Hope you guys enjoyed reading this post, and I hope it may have helped you to plan your next short trip.
