India’s intense sight- and monument-filled capital is a compelling blend of the modern Raj-influenced New Delhi, and the sights, sounds and smells of Old Delhi’s heaving and exotic lanes and bazaars.
Situated on the edge of Chanakyapuri, the capital’s diplomatic enclave, the Maurya is something of a landmark with its distinctive stepped profile, fronted by immaculately tended lawns and shrubbery.
Reputedly a favourite of visiting dignitaries and heads of state, it wears this honour lightly and you’re more likely to be rubbing shoulders with other high-end leisure travellers.
An array of swish modern rooms come with excellent facilities including an ayurvedic spa and lovely swimming pool.
The hotel’s famous Bukhara and Dum Pukht restaurants (with Northwest Frontier and Awadhi cuisine respectively) are celebrated foodie destinations, still wowing Delhi’s great and good along with out-of-town visitors.
Around fifteen minutes’ drive from most of the city’s main sights, this is a great option for those who want to base themselves somewhere calm and peaceful, and just dip in and out of the busy centre.
New Delhi’s green and leafy boulevards which characterise the property’s surroundings originate with British architect Sir Edwin Lutyens’s masterplan to build a new statement-making capital for the Raj.
While pleasant enough to stroll around, there’s little of real interest within reasonable walking distance unless you’re curious to glimpse some of the colonial-era bungalows and modern villas of what is now a privileged and very expensive part of the capital.
