Leela Palace

Last updated: 30 December, 2023

Standing amidst the relatively calm, almost genteel, boulevards of leafy New Delhi, the Leela Palace is a modern hotel with palatial aspirations.

A grand marble-floored lobby sets the tone for a just-short-of-flashy ‘Indo-baroque’ style. Rooms are spacious with a vintage-leaning decor and, unique for central Delhi, the rooftop infinity pool is magnificent.

Situated on the southern edge of Chanakyapuri, the capital’s diplomatic enclave, the hotel is ideally placed for those who want to explore Delhi’s frenetic streets and extraordinary sites, before escaping to a quieter quarter of town in the evenings.

Surrounding area

Surrounded in the main by broad, leafy and well-maintained boulevards – home to numerous embassies and, a little further afield, many important government offices – this is a fairly quiet and tame corner of New Delhi.

For some, this will be part of the appeal, though if you want to be in the thick of the action, there are better choices.
