Landscaped gardens, towering palm trees and soothing fountains greet guests at this elegant colonial-style property on the banks of the Gomti River in Lucknow, the capital of India’s Uttar Pradesh province. The guestrooms are decked out in earthy red, cheery chartreuse and dusty purple and feature ergonomic work desks and custom lighting. Pillow menus, dual massage showerheads, ayurvedic toiletries, tea- and coffeemaking facilities and free water come standard in all rooms. Head outside to explore the 25 acres of gardens, book a treatment at the spa, squeeze in a workout at the 24-hour fitness center or splash around in the outdoor pool. You won’t have to leave the grounds for food, either. Feast on pan-Indian specialties (aromatized baked prawns, panseared fish) at Latitude, indulge in upscale North Indian cuisine (tender kebabs, lamb bone marrow) at Oudhyana, or retire to SAQI for a muddled cocktail or two.
In the Area
To orient yourself in this charming capital city, ask the hotel to arrange a heritage walk or a tonga (horse and buggy) ride through the historic lanes. You’ll learn about the city’s 18th- and 19th-century heyday, when the arts and architecture scene flourished under the rule of the nawabs, Muslim princes and landowners who patronized the arts in India. This artistic history lives on in the region’s rich embroidery tradition — you’ll see residents hand-washing colorful, elaborate fabrics on the riverbanks — as well as its architecture. Don’t miss a visit to the Asafi Imambara, an elegant monument from the 18th century composed of a mosque that features labyrinth-like corridors; nearby you’ll spy the Rumi Darwaza, a 60-foot-high 18th-century gate said to be a replica of an archway in Istanbul.
