The Imperial New Delhi, New Delhi, India

Approaching The Imperial through its stately avenue of palms tells you everything: this truly is a landmark hotel. In fact, we’ve known museums that don’t display as much history as The Imperial!

Conceived as the city’s most luxurious hotel, The Imperial offers a unique blend of Victorian, Art Deco and colonial influences.

Aside from its permanent collection of rare 18th and 19th century artworks, there are reminders everywhere of the grand, aristocratic (and very British) world of 1900s colonial India, all shown off with a certain pride.

It overflows with Old World charm, its cool white exterior, swish pool and lush gardens providing an oasis of peace and calm in the heart of the city.

​This grand old lady is also looking fresh and sparkling from a recent facelift, firmly establishing itself as the place to savour the atmosphere of colonial days. Could there be anywhere better to escape the frenetic pace of New Delhi?
