Upon his return from the “land of spirituality”, the renowned French writer André Malraux was deeply impressed and called India “the other pole of our life”. The disconcerting reality of India acts on our perceptions, upsets our senses and urges us into contemplation. Nothing is without contradiction in this land of contrasts where magnificence and opulence live side by side with poverty and misery. The complex and mysterious capital of India, Delhi is a prime example of these contradictions. This city with multiple identities has been marked by the imprint of Moghol sovereigns, before being administered and reshaped by order of King George V of England. Time here seems to function at two different and distinct speeds. Although picturesque and traditional, old Delhi with its maze of dark narrow streets is teeming with people, with shouting and with a number of unpleasant odors. New Delhi on the other hand is modern and well to do, designed using the plans of British architect, Sir Edwin Luytens and is representative of a westernized India rising up to the rank of a major player in the world economy.
At nightfall, the windows of The Park New Delhi illuminate the sky with their bluish neon lights. As the crowds gradually leave the streets of the Connaught Place quarter, the first occupants of the Park ensconce themselves in the fuchsia sofas of its ultra modern bar, ready to try a cocktail between two visits to the dance floor. The hotel, a contemporary oasis in the heart of New Delhi, caters to business travelers passing through the capital. Created out of the imagination of the celebrated British designer, Terence Conran, founder of the Habitat chain of stores, the eclectic and sophisticated interiors possess a colorful, minimalist, pop and classical atmosphere. Decorated in turquoise, fuchsia and anise with transparent partitions and white pearl curtains, Conran uses traditional Indian architectural codes to create a semi-futuristic aura in the image of an India turned resolutely toward everything modern, and whose exponential economic growth seems to be without end. Trendy and contemporary, The Park New Delhi is a perfect taking off place for the conquest of the city.
The hotel, in its desire to be part of the policy of environmental preservation, has just received LEED certification (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design), thus becoming one of the primary ecological establishments in India. - marieclairemaison.com
