With its rich her­itage art and spec­tac­u­lar flower dec­o­ra­tions, this mon­u­ment of lux­ury al­most im­me­di­ately tele­ports your mind and soul (if not your body) to the Mughal era. The cap­i­tal’s only mod­ern palace ho­tel, it has a spec­trum of fa­cil­i­ties and a zeal­ous staff that re­ally go out of their way to make your stay ex­tra­or­di­nary. The ho­tel has an op­u­lently dec­o­rated lobby with cut­tingedge decor and soar­ing ar­chi­tec­tural el­e­ments. Book your­self into one of their grand deluxe room that is a per­fect mix of aes­thetic de­sign and su­perla­tive lux­ury.

Global Flavours The ho­tel has an im­pres­sive ar­ray of gourmet restau­rants of­fer­ing a flavour for ev­ery re­fined palate. We sug­gest you re­serve a ta­ble at Le Cirque, the first In­dian out­post of the famed New York restau­rant for a thrilling gas­tro­nom­i­cal ex­pe­di­tion. With its ca­sual el­e­gance, re­strained but at­ten­tive ser­vice, this re­fined French-Ital­ian restau­rant re­volves around an open kitchen. We could keep go­ing back for the potato and porcini mush­room ravioli in a creamy morel sauce.
