Hugged by an extensive parkland with historic tombs dating back to the 15th century, The Lodhi in New Delhi ticks all the right boxes for a luxurious holiday in the national capital. By Bayar Jain
Spread across nearly seven acres in the heart of New Delhi, The Lodhi is designed to give its guests a stay second to none. This urban oasis, despite being centrally located, comes paired with abundant greens and ancient tombs from the 15th century.
As a member of The Leading Hotels of the World, the hotel offers some of the city’s largest rooms and suites. While some of these accommodations come equipped with private plunge pools, others boast of expansive balconies overlooking the verdant landscaped greens signature to The Lodhi. The higher floors also promise picturesque views of the city’s skylines, Delhi Golf Course, and the iconic Humayan’s Tomb.
An acclaimed name as one of the finest dining offering of the city, The Lodhi serves an eclectic range of cuisines that caters to all tastes and preferences. At Élan, the all-day dining restaurant, savour an array of dishes from around the globe while seated in an al fresco area with private canopies. At Perbacco, curated by master chef Adriano Baldassarre, enjoy a slice of contemporary Italy with an inventive twist. For new-age mixology amid spectacular settings, Safari Lounge beckons.
The Athletic Club at The Lodhi plays host to exclusive wellness, fitness, and recreational facilities. This includes a gymnasium with cutting-edge equipment, yoga and pilates studios, three all-weather tennis courts, and two air-conditioned squash courts with personal fitness trainers available for assistance. A 50-metre climate-controlled swimming pool, paired with an adjoining Pool Café that serves seasonal and healthy specials, completes the fitness offerings.
Sessions of fitness can be followed by moments of leisure, and The Lodhi Spa nails this art. A sanctuary of tranquility, the spa has a plethora of therapies and rituals that fuse modernity with the traditional. When here, choose from revitalising Indian and Western massage treatments, Ayurvedic specialty rituals, luxurious scrubs, wraps, and more. For added relaxation, opt for Hammams with plunge pools of varying temperatures to help dispel the rigours of travel. End the pampering with a personalised creative styling and beauty treatment at the in-house salon.
For those looking to explore the city, the hotel’s globally accredited Les Clefs D’Or concierges can also curate tailored excursions and experiences.
