Located in New Delhi and set amongst 7 acres of luscious land, The Lodhi is an exceptional contemporary property offering a luxurious stay in a lively but very green area of Delhi. Close to the Delhi Golf Course and the city's Lodhi Gardens, from which it takes its name, the ambience of The Lodhi is hushed and the décor is slick and sleek. The hotel is graced with views of Humayun’s Tomb, which is currently being lovingly restored to its former glory, and it is a 15-minute walk from The India Habitat Centre which showcases modern Indian artists, and Khan Market – Delhi’s most coveted shopping street.
The Lodhi draws in a cool crowd of Delhi socialites throughout the week and its guest portfolio is hip and young international types. Each of the 40 rooms within the main building are the size of a small apartment, and come with a very generous sitting area, workstation, dressing room and spacious en-suite bathrooms; best of all, they each have their own private plunge pool which overlook the city, a civilised way to end a day exploring India’s most famous city. The rooms are modern and minimalistic in décor with all the tech trimmings (such as a hi-tech Toto loo) one could ask for. The Lodhi Salon has ten treatment areas and stocks gorgeous domestic and international brands. Book in for quick blow dry before dinner or immerse yourself in a luxurious facial to top of your stay at The Lodhi.
The Lodhi also has a a state of the gym, a 50 metre swimming pool, and tennis and squash courts, for those looking for a more active stay in the capital. After working out, head to one of two restaurants; the casual Elan is where breakfast is served in a light and airy environment. Next up is the ever-popular and renowned Indian Accent who have recently taken up residence at The Lodhi – a supper there is definitely worth it and a sophisticated way in which to begin or end your trip round India. Complimentary Wi-fi is available throughout the hotel.
