Leela Palace New Delhi: new luxury hotel in the diplomatic quarter

If you are going to New Delhi, check out the Leela Palace New Delhi, the first upscale hotel built from the ground up in the city in 15 years. Located in the diplomatic area of the capital, this hotel, styled like a palace, is an impressive building filled with immense white columns, lush plant life and marble floors. The architecture of the building is inspired by Lutyens and the art by Mrs. Madhu Bair.

A baby-sitting service, car hire  and world-class spa by ESPA are also available.

While a stay at The Leela Palace New Delhi is not inexpensive by any means (rooms start at $550 for doubles), the trip is worth the splurge. The spaces give guests enough room to spread out over a large area that is equipped to fit elegant furniture and beautiful decorative touches.

Presidential Suites and regular rooms are available for guests, but the real gems are the hotel’s suites. With names like the Maharaja Suite and the Executive Suite, these rooms offer plunge pools, jacuzzis and an enormous amount of space ranging from 700 square feet to 1,520 square feet. Breathtaking city views can be found throughout all of the suites.
