Be transported back to the elegance of the British Raj in this landmark heritage hotel.

An elegant relic of the British Raj, every inch of this grand colonial hotel has been designed to delight its guests with 24 magnificent king palms leading up to its imposing entrance. Within, it is filled with handsome marble floors, elaborate furnishings and a rich history told through the vintage framed photographs on the walls. And well located for exploring New Delhi’s most revered landmarks such as the India Gate memorial and Rashtrapati Bhavan (formerly Viceroy’s House) which are just a short drive away.

Rooms look out to either a beautiful courtyard or gardens and are each arguably equal to that of a royal residence. Dark, polished wood sits amid cream-coloured walls and soft, elegant furnishings for a dignified atmosphere throughout. Recline on a luxurious bed fitted with French linen and soak in an exquisite marble bath in your en suite bathroom.

The hotel’s five restaurants serve a range of cuisines to suit your taste ­– Italian in San Gimignano, European at NOSTALGIA at 1911 Brasserie and pan-Indian at Daniell’s Tavern. Enjoy the classic ritual of high tea at the covered courtyard of The Atrium or sample tempting patisserie at La Baguette. The most famous of all however is The Spice Route where you can sample the spices of India, Sri Lanka and Southeast Asia amid a sea of hand-painted murals, wood carvings and Thai sculptures from the Chiang Mai region in Thailand – a truly unique dining experience.
