Hey! We got a send off!!
Four days and four nights were enough for me to make a lot of new friends among the staff in the JW in Kolkata. From Simran at check-in to Parash, Kalam, Suman, Aayushi, Boni and manager Rahul in the restaurant to the two Tathagatas – one at the concierge and one in the lobby and the gentleman helping us at the pool (I forget the name), I got to know the life story and aspirations of a lot of new friends.
And guess what they did for us? As we were finishing up breakfast to start getting ready to checkout – a farewell cake showed up!!!
Over 500 stays in different hotels in different parts of the world in the last 25 years. This is a first for me!!
(BTW, do not worry about mask standards in the JW. It is very strict for staff and the guests were also more or less compliant. The staff took off the mask just for a couple of seconds for my brother to take the picture).
