Lebua Lucknow, located in the centre of Lucknow, is an early 19th century haveli that has been lovingly restored and renovated to its former Art Deco glory.
This charming heritage hotel offers forty-one luxurious rooms and suites, which perfectly marry the quintessential Lakhnavi royal heritage living spaces, that open onto beautifully kept courtyards and terraces, with the Art Deco style of architecture. Designed as sprawling traditional bungalows, the Executive, Deluxe and Luxury Rooms and Lebua Suites range in size from 180 to 500 square feet each. All rooms and suites are non-smoking, air-conditioned and have a balcony or terrace, in addition to complimentary Wi-fi. Sprawling lush green lawns surround the hotel, dotted with manicured terraces for one to explore or relax in.
The hotel offers a number of dining options for guests to enjoy; Azrak, a traditional Indian restaurant serves a lavish menu inspired by the cuisine from three erstwhile royal courts of India – the Nawabs, the Nizams and the Rajput. The contemporary Italian restaurant, 1936, which pays tribute to when the bungalow was first built, has al fresco dining and is the first of its kind in the city. The Lounge bar is a small but buzzy bar and is ideal to unwind before dinner. Guests can also enjoy in-room dining, or Khema for an exclusive and unique dining experience. The hotel also comprises an outdoor swimming pool as well as a gym.
Lucknow as a city is an enlightening melting pot of cultures and culinary delights, and the best way to experience this fascinating city is on a guided walking tour through the ancient streets and buzzing bazaars. The Lebua can organise a number of activities which take in the historical sites and culturally rich city, included a culinary tour and heritage walks, both of which come highly recommended.
