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.
How to Get There
Located very close to Delhi Airport, just 40 minutes drive. The hotel resembles a palace of medieval rulers, very colorful, atmospheric, but at the same time with a modern interior! Separately, I want to note the amazing SPA! I recommend to everyone!
We stayed for 1 night in October, the staff is so friendly, they help you with everything so you feel like a real queen. We also liked the food and in particular breakfast - a lot of nice dishes to choose from. The suites are spacious, we had a room on a ground floor - so there is also acces to the shared pool. Huge territory offers golf and a lot of other activities, you can even visit thehotels own garden, where they grow fruits etc.
Hi i recently visited this beautiful property of ITC. Though I wasn't staying with them but the hospitality and help that was given is quite appreciable. Especially Mr. Manav was of great help. He and the team managed to arrange everything that we requested for. Lastly the food was delicious, especially dal makhani and deserts.
Thanks you for being such a great help.
