The Imperial New Delhi, Delhi

An oasis of calm set in seven acres of manicured gardens, The Imperial is one of Delhi’s finest heritage hotels with a superb setting in the heart of the capital.

Built during the British colonial period by Blomfield, an associate of Sir Edwin Lutyen, The Imperial is something of an icon in the city. You’ll be swept up to the hotel’s grand entrance, with its magnificent white facade, along a driveway lined with 24 king palms. Inside, you’re greeted with glittering chandeliers, Italian marbled hallways and Burmese teak furniture, whilst sepia photographs adorn the walls. The guestrooms and magnificent suites all have a contemporary feel, and many overlook the verdant gardens. 

As well as for its harmonious blend of colonial, Art Deco and Victorian styles, The Imperial is renowned for its refined service and attention to detail. Centrally located, it’s easy to get around and explore, with attractions like the India Gate just steps away. After a day of sightseeing, the palm-shaded swimming pool offers welcome respite, as does the restorative Imperial Spa. When not dining out, the hotel has a selection of excellent restaurants serving up an eclectic mix of cuisines. A choice of historic bars transports you back to the Raj era.
