Staycation at Brigade Signature Club Resort, Devanahalli, Bangalore!

I believe in this quote - “People don’t take trips, trips take people” by John Steinbeck.
This is what I felt when I did a staycation a few weeks ago at the Signature Club Resort, Devanahalli. Easter just got over and for working people, it’s hard to find a holiday in coming few months. A staycation is a perfect way to enjoy your sweet little time from your busy schedule. My hubby and I have spent quality time in few resorts before and club resort concept is not that unfamiliar to us. Brigade Orchard where Signature Club Resort is located is very beautiful and calm property which is spread across in 130 acres smart township. They believe in Green Carpet experience for their patrons. The Signature Club Resort is filled with lush greenery and fresh air. So when you are here forget about the hustle bustle of the city life.






We took almost 1.5 hours to reach this place from HAL side (by cab). As it is Brigade group’s property it is well maintained and staffs here are very sweet and helpful. After welcoming us with a refreshing welcome drink, we went through the usual check-in procedures. They have 45 executive rooms and 5 Suites, 28 King size rooms and 12 twin bedrooms. The spacious guest rooms have basic amenities like Wi-Fi connectivity, TV, work desk, mini bar, washroom with  24/7 hot water availability, comfortable mattress, clean linens and a balcony which overlooks the greenery of Brigade property. We got room no: 111 and I was so excited to see my lucky number as the room number.



As it was a staycation, we didn’t want to waste a single minute. So we quickly freshened up and came out of room to take the resort tour. Few of my fellow bloggers were also there and we had one helluva fun time. We were greeted by Mr. Rahul from Marketing team who took us for the resort tour. This can be a perfect place for weekend getaways as well as corporate team outing as they have ‘n’ number of things to entertain you.


With birds chirping all around, walking in this property is kind of unwinding experience from all your stress. They have such lush greenery, traditional Mangalorean homestyle designs with split levels, courtyards, open verandah etc and it’s all well maintained. This is what we miss in chaotic city life. We should adapt this kind of lifestyle in cities as well. Metropolitan people should think more about eco-friendly culture and atmosphere.


While walking we noticed their outdoor activity areas like Basket Ball court, Tennis court, Cricket ground, a well-laid jogging track, Paintball and Shooting area etc. They also have indoor recreation activity areas like swimming pool with temperature control, Squash court, two Badminton courts with Oakwood flooring, a well-equipped gym, Yoga terrace, Table tennis, and Billiards – Pool Table. The only thing I missed this time was the Spa which will be opening soon. My hubby and I enjoyed playing Basket Ball, TT, and Badminton. We felt so rejuvenated after playing the games.





Their F&B includes Courtyard Café, Pavilion Bar, and Tamarind Restaurant.  We had a wonderful time relishing some good grub. We tried their lavish Buffet dinner and breakfast and also the a la carte lunch. The food was great. We mostly had fresh juices, tea/coffee, and also tried a couple of mocktails which was just okay. We spent most of the time in outdoor activities, so dining in the restaurant was more relaxing than going for the room service.





We hardly spend two days in Signature Club Resort and saw this place packed with corporate team outings, family celebrations etc. They have two nice banquet halls which are perfect for accommodating larger crowds.


Overall I enjoyed my staycation at Signature Club Resorts. Their package starts from ₹5800 onwards. Places to see around – Vineyards, Nandi Hills, Devanahalli Fort. To get exciting deals and membership details, contact – membership@signatureclubresort.com or dial 080 23086688
