Opulent, Maharaja era-inspired retreat, with a golf course, spa and verdant setting in the Aravali Range, part of India's "Golden Triangle"
This 104 all-suite palace in the "Golden Triangle" — a tourism route that encompasses Delhi, Agra and Jaipur – offers a taste of Old World India that feels a world away from the chaotic energy of the nearby Indian capital. The style is reminiscent of the grand palaces and forts of Rajasthan (with more than a little hint of the Taj Mahal), featuring grand buildings, manicured gardens and soothing water features. Suites are a far cry from the current five-star tendency towards muted palettes; instead, luxuriate in rich colors and textures and vibrant artworks, carved wooden beds and furnishings that nod to the country’s colonial era styles. Prepare to be spoiled for choice in the dining department: choose from international classics in The India Room, locally inspired Mewati barbecues at Apas Promenade or Swasthya Cuisine at Aravali Pavilion – based on a philosophy of eating the right combination of foods to enhance ‘sirath’ (internal beauty) and ‘surat’ (external beauty). If you’re looking for some suds, mosey into the Peacock Bar, where bartenders practice what they call "molecular mixology" to create one-of-a-kind cocktails. Detox later at the Kaya Kelp spa, a regal retreat that includes a vitality pool, juice bar and daily yoga practice.
In the Area
While the designing principle at Grand Bharat is to keep guests happily occupied on the grounds, there are diversions aplenty in the surrounding ranges as well. Sign up for a day of gung ho adventures at Camp Wild, near Mangar village on the border of Gurgaon and Faridabad: Day trippers can join activities like rock climbing, hiking, rapelling and ATV rides. In Gurgaon, marvel at Qutub Khan's Tomb, a 12th century tower and mosque built by Qutab-ud-din Aibak after the defeat of Delhi's last Hindu kingdom. While in town, peruse the collection at the Devi Art Foundation, a superbly curated collection of contemporary Indian art. Then stop in for some top-notch Indian and Pakistani fare at Coriander Leaf, considered by many the best eating in Gurgaon.
