Minimal. Nostalgic. Quirky. Andaz Delhi brings Delhi to you in one non-conformist and offbeat package
This suite on the second floor of this vast hotel is a non-space. A nomadic space for one who has come to understand hotels. It is a liminal space. Some of us belong here with no arrival and no departure. There is an exaggerated present and that’s what luxury is all about. In a suite on the second floor of Andaz, a Hyatt range of boutique hotels, there are windows that look out on a swimming pool and glass and concrete buildings of no particular nationality. The hotel could be anywhere. That’s the luxury of this new heaven. Writer Elizabeth Grosz once said what is it to reflect upon a position, a relation, a place related to other places but with no place of its own, a position in-between?
The 401-room hotel in Delhi’s Aerocity has many novelties to offer. The luxury of it isn’t in its orangewalled spa where you choose from different coloured stones to locate your source of pain. Instead, the luxury of this hotel, the first in India, is in the anonymity it offers. Its geographical location in Aerocity, next to the airport, makes it eligible for that elusive “liminal”
A SPACE FOR ART The minimally designed lobby has an uncluttered vibe
