THE GRAND NEW DELHI

DELHI: The Grand New Delhi is spread over 10–acres in the heart of South Delhi, walking distance from malls DLF Emporio, DLF Promenade and Ambience. This 400-odd room luxury hotel, one of a handful of hotels synonymous with discreet luxury, has some of the finest restaurants and cocktail bar in New Delhi and of course a spa, gym and pool to relax and rejuvenate.

 

The moment you drive up to the porch, you cannot help notice that unlike the standard tall skyscraper, The Grand is defined by its low rise architecture across acres of landscaped lawns interlinked with water bodies — an exceptional blend of a resort architecture equipped with modern design and comfort — in the heart of South Delhi! The dizzying categories of rooms range from Grand Premium Rooms and Grand Club Rooms to Business Suites, Executive Suites, Deluxe Suites, Presidential Suite and Service Apartments. Checking in to Grand Club Room with a stunning pool view, I was pampered with cookies, chocolates and fruit platter, before I headed to Spa Oasis for a half—day Ayurveda therapy that scrubbed, polished and lubricated skin. Unwilling to leave the peaceful oasis hours later, I lounged in a reclining chair by the pool, sipping wine and admiring a view of the plush green landscaped gardens. It was purrfect with a post-rainfall breeze caressing my hair. Time flew in solitude and before I realized, it was 7 p.m. so I freshened up and joined a friend at G Bar where we indulged in fresh fruit sangria and thin-crust pizza baked in a mammoth oven at their award winning signature restaurant IT, which has a second entrance from the porch — perfect for couples who want to dine in privacy hmm! The chef had crafted a seven-course Italian meal, but this being Saturday night at the hottest place in the city, we kept bumping into friends and dining in the charming alfresco restaurant was not destined. Sigh!

 

Satiated with sangria pitchers accompanied by pizza topped with spicy pepperoni and sun dried tomatoes, spinach crust pizza topped with assorted mushroom and a side of sinfully delicious creamy mashed potatoes, I headed up to my room at midnight, where I ordered chamomile tea before I fell asleep. I awoke the following morning and ordered a pot of coffee accompanied by the fluffiest croissants, eggs and fresh fruits, before I headed down for express check-out, with fond memories of the stay which brings me to the last thought: efficient service, discreet luxury, super spa and a galaxy of restaurants serving Italian, Oriental and Indian flavours ensure guests would not want to leave the hotel—and would be back on their next trip to the Capital!
