Asia 401 Reasons to Fall in Love with Delhi
Similar to the brand’s other hotels, Andaz Delhi offers inspiring experiences through the neighborhood’s rich history and culture, helping guests get to know their surroundings more intimately and leave feeling like a local.
Conveniently located in Aerocity, the hotel is within easy reach of downtown Delhi and the business hub of Gurgaon. Designed to capture the spirit of Delhi by renowned architect Bauer Latoza Studio from Chicago, and interior designer Virgile and Partners from London, the hotel integrates traditional Indian elements, colors and flavors into a modern design inspired by the unique craftsmanship of India.
Andaz Delhi opens today with a partial inventory of its residential-style 401 guestrooms, including 45 suites. The hotel will also offer 129 serviced apartments, expected to open next year.
Each guestroom at Andaz Delhi features a unique curated piece of art that celebrates a reason to “fall in love with Delhi.”
The collection is skillfully integrated into a book displayed in each room called “401 Reasons to Fall in Love with Delhi,” written by well-known travel writer Fiona Caulfield.
While there is much to love about Delhi, navigating its myriad twists and turns can be a challenge, therefore the book has been designed to highlight twelve different categories for those to discover areas of specific interests, including: Delhi’s Building Heritage, Taste of Delhi, Creative Delhi, Delhi Celebrates, Cultural Delhi, Sporting Delhi, Delhi Shops, New Delhi Architecture, Delhi Devotion, Delhi on the Move, Natural Delhi and Iconic Delhi.
The hotel offers 37,500 sq. ft. (3,484 sq. m.) of innovative meeting and event spaces, with fluid layouts and functional design creating environments that dissolve barriers and encourage creative thinking, interaction and conversation.
The oval shaped pillar-less ballroom is one of the largest indoor luxury wedding spaces in Delhi and can accommodate up to 1,500 guests.
The unobstructive design of the ballroom provides a blank canvas to customize and decorate the space based on the individuality and style of any guest.
The unique Elephant Path adds a sense of drama to a traditional Indian wedding. Eight Andaz Studios offer residential-style meeting and event spaces with inspiring open kitchens and an outdoor terrace. ■
