Cinnamon Stays is a bed &
breakfast, home-away-from-home, a collection of conversations and
stories, a first-time-hospitality venture and our serendipitous
discovery of our latent entrepreneurship all rolled into one.
Tucked away just a bend from the rapidly
concretising Sohna road in Sec 48 Gurgaon (NCR, New Delhi) amongst the
red-bricked villas are 5 rooms with soul and character.
We are very close to Medi City/ Medanta (5
min), Hero Honda Chowk (10 min), Golf Course Road (10 min), IFFCO Chowk
(10 min), Galleria market (15 min), Pathways School(15 min), MG(Mall)
Road (20 min), Udyog Vihar (20 min), Manesar (20 min)...
Our cosy bed & breakfast/ guest house is
replete with concept rooms, handmade posters, jugaad-lamps, personalised
service and simple home-made food.
It’s quite unlike any guest house in
Gurgaon. Stay with us to experience the difference!
The hosts Shilpi and Manish are from the
HR and media world and Cinnamon is their maiden foray into hospitality.
Shilpi is a mother and a successful executive + life coach who runs her
own company Purple Tree trying to make a difference in people’s lives!
Manish is an advertising planner and a closet copy writer, a social
media enthusiast who wants to build a business around jugaad concepts
and conversations. The cast also includes their 6 and 1/2 year old son
Neo – the gadget guru, Suri – the manager who wants to be a pilot, Yogi
– the cook who wants to drive fast cars and Rashmi – the wonder woman
and crisis manager from Mangalore..
Puraani Jeans -
quaint room with a queen-sized bed will remind you that there is more
to life than the corporate rat race. Often what we most cherish are
people and passions that we have long lost touch with. Old college
friends, the canteen cutting chai, the idle time pass, the no-deadline
life. The best of life's memories are stored in the past. In Puraani
Jeans, we would like you to forget the present and rebond with your
Green Room -
is so much to talk about the environment these days. It’s a pity there
is lot more talk and much less action. As responsible travelers we
must do our two cents. What say? The Green room is a reminder to all
of us to mend our wasteful ways! A small step is more important than
all the tall promises made. Let's remember to switch off the lights
after use, use less water in the loo and shower and use the AC on
power saving mode! Let's try to recycle paper as often as we can, say
no to plastic bags and use CFL bulbs instead of filament ones. Let's
make a small effort to reduce our carbon foot-print!
Doodle Room -
of us are born creative. And then we go to school and college and the
system over a 16 year period manages to mostly force the creativity
out of us. But still many of us survive to scribble and draw on office
pads! We make patterns on the back of memos, create designs on paper
napkins and write poetry on post-its. In the doodle room, when you are
all alone and relaxed, we encourage you to explore your untapped
talents. Ask for post-its, pads and pencils or color the terracotta
pots. There is no competition here, no scoring, just you and your wild
thoughts and designs.
work, everyone tells you to get connected. To share. To network. To
get ahead. To beat someone. To be someone. To be more visible. To get
noticed. To change. To be the change. But we know that often you yearn
to unplug from the grind. No internet. No phone calls. No SMS. No MMS.
No Facebook. No Orkut!!! Just unplug. Enjoy a good night sleep without
the blackberry beep, Take a shower, listen to some music, relax on the
Cinnamon fresh bed.
Grand Room -
in life, it’s important to indulge, to give in to the moment. What is
life if we do not have the luxury of time, of taste, of music and of
literature. And if nothing else, then the luxury of a nice large clean
bed and a tastefully done up room. Welcome to the Grand Room! Plonk
yourself on the poster bed. You have Sean Connery, Marilyn Monroe and
Steve Jobs for company…Relax and give in to your grand imagination!
Cinnamon rooms are not just about clean
beds and good service, our effort is to make you feel at home and feel
nice about yourself. Of course we have all the necessary stuff as well!
