Countryside Chalet Resort: A Breath of fresh air with friends and family
“Happiness is having a large, loving, caring, close-knit family in another city.”― George Burns
Picnics are the best way to enjoy the simple pleasure of life spent with family and friends. No one is elder or small we all behave and enjoy like kids on picnic. Karachi is the most populous city in Pakistan, and sixth-most-populous city properly in the world. The city is Pakistan’s premier industrial and financial hub. Karachi is also Pakistan’s most cosmopolitan city. Karachiites live the most fast pace life across Pakistan they hardly find time for their families and themselves, so if you also live in Karachi I have spotted the best place for all of you 22 minutes away from airport and cantt. Yes! I’m talking about Countryside Chalet Resort once you enter Countryside chalet you will literally feel like you are in a contemporary village where you can feel fresh air experience the beautiful ambiance.
This place is extremely green, architecture and design is mind blowing which will actually make you feel you have traveled out for holidays. 30 November and 1st of December were one of the best family hangout we had we were three families and friends all together, we roam around whole resort 3 hours and did not feel exhausted or bored at all.
We all went to play indoor games which included: Snooker, Caram Board, Table Tennis and Dabbo. Then we had amazing food which included Chiken Korma, BBQ, Salads, Chatni’s, Naan and Desserts. Everyone has different taste buds but trust me each and every member kept on saying how tempting the food is! If I individually rate the meal I would call BBQ succulent and Korma appetizing whereas the desserts were soft, fresh and yummy.
Initially we planned to watch a movie in cinema after dinner but then we changed the plan, had a bon-fire parents went for sleeping but all of us were out in the garden sitting and chatting to make most of the chilly nights an experience rare in Karachi. We just took a nap before the breakfast and enjoyed Chana, Aaloo Tarkari, Halwa Puri, Pickle and strong Dodh Patti (tea.)
We had a photo shoot some solo and group pictures at beautiful scenery of resort, all went for trying some air gun shots, boating and ATV Bikes were a real fun bikes were so good and smooth the area made to ride sounds like a desert which creates the best feeling when you sit on a vehicle. Girls enjoyed cycling and spent hours and hours in it. Mini Zoo is the major attraction for kids in resort plus in a lobby there were so many animals in a cage few of the animals if I list included: Panther, Horses, Rabbits, Monkeys, Snakes (Different breeds,) Monitor Lizard, Ostrich, Ducks and different breeds of parrots. Oh yes we enjoyed horse riding extremely! Animals were in good condition and fed on time but you can also bring some food for them both of you will enjoy the feeling.
“For every minute you are angry you lose sixty seconds of happiness.” Ralph Waldo Emerson
We took Ralph Waldo’s quote too seriously and felt happy only! The staff of Countryside Chalet was too good, services were perfect, waiters, the other staff members helping us to enjoy in the facility areas, rooms were cleaned. I rate the resort 10/10 moreover the GM of the resort Inayat Ali is very responsible and hospitable person, Mushtaq was a great help too. I’m amazed how Azeem Adil Sheikh the owner of the resort is handling the resort. I want to thank Hussain Thebo for pitching this place to me, I strongly recommend Countryside Chalet to Karachiites and even the tourists who wish to visit Karachi.
