The Lodhi+ Aman New Delhi by Kerry Hill Architects located in New Delhi, India | The Hardt
The Lodhi + Aman New Delhi by Kerry Hill Architects located in New Delhi, India. The luxury hotel won the Commendation for International Architecture at the AIA’s 2010 National Architecture Awards. On the streets of New Delhi’s Lodhi quarter, the Hotel Aman New Delhi explodes onto the pious and solemn outskirts of the city, adjacent to the Nizam Uddin mausoleum. Sprung from the imagination of the celebrated Australian architect, Kerry Hill, this luxury establishment is daringly trendy in style, plunging guests into a delicately contemporary universe. The design furniture and sculpted Rajasthan stone walls make the Aman New Delhi a worthy representative of the prestigious Amanresorts hotel group. The 31 rooms and 8 suites spread over 9 floors contain jaalis (perforated stone with geometric patterns) and open onto the hustle and bustle of the Indian capital. But for perfect moments of relaxation, there’s nothing better than taking advantage of the wide range of massages and treatments available at the hotel’s spa.
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.
Amanresorts and The Lodhi have created a six-night itinerary to experience the vibrant culture of India, including two night stays at The Lodhi and Amanbagh and Aman-i-Khas, in Rajasthan. It includes daily breakfast for two and one activity per resort per stay. Visit India‘s cosmopolitan capital New Delhi. Located in Lutyen’s Delhi, just minutes from Rashtrapati Bhavan, the peaceful Lodhi gardens, Humayun’s Tomb and many other iconic sites, The Lodhi provides a tranquil heart for one of the world’s most colorful and cosmopolitan capital cities. Offering essential respite on a six-acre property, this city-based retreat is an elegant haven of leisure facilities including The Lodhi Spa, Gym, Pilates studio, Tennis and Squash courts and a variety of restaurants. All Lodhi rooms and suites feature private plunge pools. The Lodhi, formerly the Aman New Delhi, is the ideal base from which to experience the city’s wealth of historical, cultural and contemporary attractions.
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.
