The Lodhi (formerly the Aman New Delhi), is Delhi’s hippest hotel. This elegant hotel has only forty rooms and suites in the main building, and is located close to the grand architecture of the British Raj and some of the best shopping.
The rooms and suites at The Lodhi have been designed in an extremely tasteful, contemporary style and are both beautiful and spacious. The entry-level category is immense in its proportions and it becomes hard to believe you are staying in the centre of a bustling city when you swim in the large private plunge pool on your terrace.

The Lodhi is a great choice for those wanting a luxurious, modern property with a high quality of service. All of the rooms are extremely spacious and feature a luxurious plunge pool which is perfect to relax in after a long day of sightseeing. The views from the balcony and the plunge pool are fantastic; you can even spot Humayun's Tomb. The hotel offers a wide variety of activities including squash, tennis, complimentary yoga, pilates and an excellent spa.

A very unique property in Delhi, this is fantastic for those looking for luxury and a contemporary style. The plunge pools are amazing but don't be put off by the corridors when you are walking to your room as they lack character!
Jessica Cator (Staff)
This hotel certainly has the wow factor. Beautifully laid out and with copious amounts of space in each suite, you can't fail to be impressed. The plunge pools in each room are luxurious, extravagant, and will make it hard for you to want to leave!

Certainly the most fashionable rooms in Delhi, Aman never fails to deliver on style. In a city with its fair share of uninspiring hotel buildings, Aman has been built with care and precision and is attractive on its approach. Light and air inside it affords an overwhelming sense of calm, more than welcome in this hectic city. The suites are huge, all with their own huge plunge pool and spacious balcony for those who enjoy some outdoor space. The bathrooms and not vast but well appointed with a full size bath, separate walk in shower and double vanity unit. The one restaurant below is buffet free serving up a full a la carte menu for all meals with a menu to suit both Asian and European palates. The spa is excellent and for anyone who has the energy a well equipped gym, Pilates studio and three tennis courts are on offer.

What I loved about Aman New Delhi was the wow factor of the hotel. I couldn't believe the size of rooms and even more surprising was the size of the plunge pool on our balcony. The butlers at the hotel really go out of their way to make their service personalised and go above and beyond what is expected of them and this really differentiated the Aman from other city hotels.
