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
We had a great two day stay at this lavish resort on the outskirts of Delhi where you you get a royal treatment at a equally royal hotel. Remember the great hospitality of the hotel staff . Our host Ananya made us feel special throughout our trip especially our kids. Thanks to the front office team to go out of the way to make our celebration even more fun.
It is an amazing property. The hospitality offered here is not just too warm but exquisite. I have never experienced such a positive environment in any of the peoperties . There was a great comfort provided to us by aditya desa@front desk . 10/10 to himm !!!
Best staff member of itc!
We had a wonderful lunch at Aravali Pavilion with our friends yesterday.
Superb hospitality, Delectable food. The service in the restaurant was impeccable courteous staff with eye for detail.Keel doing the great work.
Kudos to Amit for arranging a nice place for us.
It’s an excellent property to get away from the bustle of Delhi. Also it’s less air pollution since it comes with a 27 hole golf course. If you are a golfer, this is a rare find!!
Amazing staff, food and rooms. Try taking one towards the greens for maximum views. Ones on the ground floor have a regular ceiling and the ones on the first floor have a decorative one (but no elevator).
Visited for a friend's wedding, the hotel is luxurious, sprawling over acres, still cosy within the suites.
Offers sumptuous breakfast. Extremely contented with the hospitality provided by our host, Mr. Aditya Desai for our stay. His service was prompt and exclusively curated for the experience. very well taken care of even the tiniest of requests, often stayed late too just to help us out.i don't remember any instance where he might have not been able to accommodate our requests.would love to stay back again sometime.
