Taj Gateway DamDama is one of its kind luxury resort famous amongst leisure seekers urban dwellers who are looking for nature-inspired accommodation but close to their city. Either you’re going for a family weekend getaway, or for a romantic getaway, Taj gateway has a lot to offer to everyone. And if you are lucky enough, you might get a chance to enjoy the sound of rainfall and chirping birds.
Located just 45 km from IGI Airport Delhi, on a sprawling 20 acres of land in the bosom of the Aravalli hills, near Damdama Lake. It will take you around 2 hours to reach there by driving. I’d not advise not to hire a cab (Uber/Ola) to reach there because it’s really far from Gurgaon centre and drivers are quite unpredictable and get cranky for such long distance rides.
Despite being connected to the city, the gateway resort has isolated itself from the bustling and fast city life. It has got a very unique kind of infrastructure which separates it from the other resorts. Big glass walls, contemporary lamps, modern seating areas and loads of plants are the main ingredients of its modern interiors.
We stayed at Deluxe King room with a balcony. The location of the room was perfect, and the view from the balcony was very scenic which you couldn’t expect to see near the metro city. Though the room size was not that spacious as you expect in a resort with this price tag. The interior of the room has got a very modern feeling with the contemporary Madhubani paintings hanging on the wall. It was fully equipped with all the essential amenities. Overall it was an Ok room.

Gateway resort has given much attention to the quality of their food. And it is evident from the freshness of vegetables and taste it has got. For lunch, we ordered pasta which was really delicious.
They served breakfast buffet at their restaurant called BUZZ. Again the restaurant is not very spacious, and the breakfast spread was limited in terms of options but delicious. It even has live dosa station where you can ask them to make dosa according to your taste. For kids, they have got all kinds of cereals, milk and juices.
Whether you are a gym freak or you are a water baby, Gateway has got something for everyone. One can unplug and unwind at the specially designed Spa. Recharge your mind with a brisk walk through acres of lush greenery, listening to a symphony of birds. Escape from the cacophonous city. So near, yet so far from the hustle and bustle of daily life.
Gift yourself this weekend getaway. Special thanks to Taj Gateway for hosting TravelerJodi.
