India is a land of contrasts shaped by the events of its thousand-year-old history. Initially marked by the imprint of Moghol sovereigns, then administered under the aegis of the British Empire, New Delhi, the nation’s capital and second largest center in the country after Mumbai, is the embodiment of the Indian paradox. From the scattered narrow streets of Old Delhi, where horrible odors waft through the crowds of people, to the calm and pure avenues of New Delhi, the seat of government, Delhi constantly reveals its multiple identities: Moghol and Muslim along the Red or the Palace Fort of Shahjahanabad, classified as a UNESCO world heritage; modern and well to do on the chic streets of Sunder Nagar, surrounded by gardens and luxury boutiques. Visitors cannot possibly remain indifferent to this capital city where splendor and opulence live side by side with poverty and misery which upset the senses and the often misconceived fantasies of the Indian reality.
The stunning silhouette of Aman New Delhi is located not far from the mausoleum of Nizam Ud Din, an Indian Sufi master. Although the neighborhood is as described in the Blue Guide as a “survivor of the medieval world marked with poetry and fervor”, the hotel is a perfect example of a contemporary and daring contrast, in line with all the other contradictions that one finds in the Indian capital. Owned by the Aman Resorts group, the hotel’s 31 rooms and 8 suites are on 9 levels with a magnificent view of Lodhi quarter and its monuments. The sophisticated, modern and elegant interiors are the work of Australian architect, Kerry Hill who created an intelligent blend of traditional Indian architecture and contemporary furniture. Sculpted walls from Rajasthan, windows and partitions pierced with jaalis or embroidery type stone decorations and dark wood furniture give the rooms a discreet luxury, conforming to the Aman group’s policy of hospitality.
As a haven of serenity in the midst of the urban hustle and bustle of New Delhi, the Aman spirit, a word derived from the Sanskrit word for peace, prevails throughout the hotel. In addition, it’s hard to resist the traditional Indian treatments offered by the hotel’s spa.
For an authentic venture into the years preceding the Indian Declaration of independence, Aman New Delhi possesses a collection of Ambassador cars produced in India in 1948, whose interiors were especially designed to offer guests of the hotel total comfort. – Journal des Palaces
