Sunday brunches in Bengaluru have become quite the thing. Perfectly timed for the not-so-early riser, these long and lavish spreads, coupled with some great alcohol, good music and entertainment for children are extremely popular. Now if you are looking for that something extra to sway you, considering the choice of places you have for a Sunday brunch, perhaps a dip in the pool may be just what you are looking for. Here are 5 Sunday brunches that throw in a splash in the pool as well.
The Square at Novotel Bengaluru Techpark
This Sunday Brunch is spread across the ground level at The Square and then around the pool at Blue Terrain which is set outdoors and a few levels up. At Blue Terrain, you can have your little ones paddle away safely in the kiddie pool that is thoughtfully sheltered from the sun, while you take a dip in the adult’s section. The brunch is a solid affair beginning with a welcome Sangria as soon as you step in. The spreads are expansive covering all popular cuisines. Do make sure to keep enough of room for the dessert counter.
Courtyard by Marriott and Fairfield by Marriott
These twin hotels share a single premise as well as restaurants. BG's Poolside Bar & Grill is where the Sunday brunch is spread out. Done elegantly around the pool, you have a section for adults and for kids to jump into. The lounge chairs by the pool are a great place to nurse your drink. With the focus primarily on grills, you will see all your options laid out in labelled tubs, marinating away, just waiting to be picked. Make sure to catch the chef who goes from table to table and do ask for their cold pizzas. The bar has a theme, based on which drinks are created every week.
The Salt Grill, Hilton Bangalore Embassy GolfLinks
The Salt Grill at the Hilton Bangalore Embassy GolfLinks is a wonderful space to have a meal. The Sunday brunch is spread across their generously sized pool and then takes the party inside to Ministry of Food. The lounge chairs, the white-curtained cabanas beside the pool, the beach umbrella tables by the pool or the air-conditioned confines of the restaurant, there are so many ways for you to relax. The bar is ever ready to customise your drinks and the spread covers it all – Italian pasta, extensive Salad counters, a full-fledged Indian spread, South-east Asian classics like Laksas put together on order and a 4-table dessert segment that includes Nitro Infused Jalebis!
The Lalit Ashok
The Lalit Ashok has some sprawling greens around its pool. And that is where the Sunday brunch is placed. While you wait for your orders from the live counters, you can take a dip in the pool and relax. The concept of the Lalit brunch is that of a family picnic and you will be surrounded by many families making a lovely weekend out of the idea. With a strong focus on grills and food from the tandoor, the Sunday brunch can also be enjoyed in the large courtyard. And of course, you can always upgrade to a champagne brunch to make a celebratory session of it as well.
Karibu, Zuri Hotels
A perfect place to relax if you happen to be in that part of town. The buffet spread is lavish and is set around the pool. You can sit around it in one of the relaxed seating options or choose to take a dip and spend some time cooling down. The spread is extensive, with a good number of live counters. Space is also quite child-friendly, with a lot of entertainment options for them.
Radisson Blu Atria
This is the latest Sunday brunch to join the fray and one that has you well covered. The outdoor pool has a cascading wall of water on one side and a very well thought of bar set up where you can top up your drinks. Created in jars with straws and deep mugs, you do not have to worry about an accident in the water. Lounge chairs with large pool towels are close at hand, as are the grill tables. You can choose to sit in the deep wicker chairs if you would like to get back in the pool or towel off and come back into the air conditioning set up on the inside, where good food awaits.
