The Hilton Promise: In Conversation with Aditya Shamsher Malla, General Manager, DoubleTree by Hilton Pune, Chinchwad

February 4, 2019

Located in the quiet, but modern and upbeat city of Pune, DoubleTree by Hilton Pune - Chinchwad tops the list when it comes to selecting a premier business hotel that not only suits your requirements but is also easily accessible. This modern and stylish hotel is situated near the main IT hub of the city – Hinjawadi, and makes for an ideal choice when it comes to hosting a successful business or MICE trip, or a fun-filled family get-together. You can also easily explore the nearby tourist spots like the charming hill station of Lonavala, located at about 42km from the hotel, and the architecturally rich Karla and Bhaja Caves. It is also one of the best hotels for bleisure travel and staycations, which are currently gaining grounds in the industry. 




Throw some light on the USPs of DoubleTree by Hilton Pune - Chinchwad.
Commissioned in 2012, the hotel is well-established as a premium business hotel in the automobile hub of Chinchwad, on the Old Mumbai Pune Highway. The hotel boasts fine food and beverage options, ranging from a multi-cuisine, all-day dining restaurant with a la carte and buffet, an award-winning specialty Japanese restaurant with a teppanyaki grill, a rooftop Indian specialty restaurant serving signature cocktails and carefully curated a la carte menu, and a deli and patisserie serving creative pastries and fine coffees. The hotel’s rooftop swimming pool and spa add to the leisure and relaxation activities for guests while they stay over for business or a break. The unique experience of staying at this hotel starts from the check-in with our signature warm DoubleTree cookie. The team at the hotel will surprise you with their warmth and attention to detail, delivered consistently throughout your stay.

What does the hotel offer in terms of meetings and events?
Food Studio is a uniquely designed meeting space, breaking away from the usual straight lines and templated presentation. As the name suggests, meetings held at Food Studio are more effective and memorable due to the creative presentation, which is a welcoming change. An open terrace adjoining the French windows in Food Studio gives an opportunity for participants to step out in fresh air and sunshine to rejuvenate and improve concentration. Food Studio along with Vihara, the other meeting venue, together offers meeting spaces for up to 300 people in seating and 500 in reception style.
How do you maintain work life balance?
Work-life balance is integral to a long, successful career. As I was reading recently, fitness, family and career must go hand in hand to create the right cocktail for success. Every day, I dedicate the morning hours to fitness, which keeps me mentally and physically agile. I also dedicate ‘me time’ for reading and feel refreshed after going through the editorials of leading dailies and also my favourite magazines. Reading at least two different genres of books simultaneously helps me to relax and enjoy the books and avoid boredom. My daughter and son claim whatever time I have left after I return from office. In fact, often they join me in my reading and morning exercise rituals. Weekends are for family outings or a game of golf. I can’t say it’s perfect, but this seems to be working well for me at the moment.
