Experience modern opulence in the city with stunning rooftop pool views and fine dining options.

This exquisite and iconic hotel brings new levels of elegance to New Delhi‘s imperial diplomatic quarter. Convenient for most of the city’s attractions, The Leela Palace also showcases Lutyens-inspired architecture and some of the most spacious and luxurious hotel rooms in India. Take a swim in the spectacular rooftop infinity pool or visit the ambient ESPA Spa for a treatment to rebalance and soothe the body. Discover the joy of slowing down in a private or group yoga session or clear your mind with a guided meditation session.

Eclectic dining options include the famous Le Cirque restaurant where you can order French and Italian cuisine, including dishes like homemade tortellini and lobster ravioli. The Qube offers all-day international dining with an open kitchen where you can watch as your chefs whip up your dish in front of you. For fine dining Indian fare, head to Jamavar where you’ll find flavoursome dishes in a sleek setting and in Megu, any sushi fan is catered for in one of the best Japanese restaurants in New Delhi. For high tea or a spot of jazz, head to The Lobby Lounge or, if you’re after a good whisky and a cigar, The Library Bar is a sophisticated hangout.

The hotel is decorated with Murano chandeliers from Italy, hand-woven Turkish carpets and Rajasthani miniature paintings, creating a space of absolute decadence. Damask walls and beautifully detailed rugs decorate each room, offering a touch of calm luxury in contrast to the buzz of New Delhi. The Premier Rooms overlook the hotel‘s beautiful gardens.
