With its quirky and colourful logo, Hyatt’s Andaz is one of the best hotels in Delhi, and one of the most recognisable names across the Aerocity skyline. Long-time patrons do not hold back when it comes to praising the five-star hotel’s luxury lifestyle brand, returning to sample stellar service year after year. For newer visitors, though, the hotel keeps reinventing itself in enticing ways. You may have several reasons to choose a long-drawn vacation in Delhi, or even a weekend stopover. But for Andaz, six reasons do all the talking:
Rooms with a View
Andaz’s guest rooms offer a stellar vantage point to enjoy the runway action of Indira Gandhi International Airport. Despite the arresting view, we certainly wouldn’t blame you if your gaze keeps turning towards the distractingly lovely accommodation. Each of Andaz’s 401 rooms is decorated with locally-inspired details, and contains one of 401 unique artworks inspired by Delhi. For a stylish long-stay option, the spacious 129 Andaz Residences are available in a range of bedroom configurations—you can even book a duplex townhouse as a service apartment for rent. In true Andaz fashion, all non-alcoholic mini-bar drinks and snacks in the rooms are complimentary, as is local connectivity and Wi-Fi.
401 Reasons to Fall in Love with Delhi
Written by Fiona Caulfield, a copy of this special book occupies pride of place in each of the guest rooms at Andaz Delhi. The hardbound tome traces the heritage of the capital, pointing out 401 tiny and larger-than-life details that inspire our love and admiration for Delhi. As Andaz’s tribute to this inspiring city, 401 Reasons to Fall in Love with Delhi delves into celebrated and iconic monuments, forgotten rituals, as well as lesser-known nooks and corners that can make even locals nostalgic. Intricate graphics and well-thought-out copy make this volume a must-have on the bookshelf of every history and adventure buff. The book is in tune with Andaz’s mantra of ensuring that guests be inspired to explore the city’s mixed culture, so that they ‘arrive as a visitor, but depart as a local’.
Immersive Dining Experiences
Andaz champions an innovative approach for its four food and beverage destinations, emphasising on artisanal produce and responsibly-sourced ingredients at every five star restaurant. AnnaMaya, the modern European Food Hall, is arguably one of the top restaurants in Delhi. Combining the colours and flavours of India with artisanal produce, seasoned chefs and a sense of whimsy, AnnaMaya is a defining name in Delhi’s culinary landscape. Their lazy Sunday breakfasts are a family favourite, with a host of kids activities to sweeten the deal.
The Hong Kong Club is a lounge and restaurant with live entertainment options, rooted in chic chinoiserie. Relive Wong Kar-wai’s moods in the 21st century, with a modern Cantonese menu, Chinese zodiac-inspired cocktails, and an enviable whisky selection. The Juniper Bar with its all-day drinks vies for the top spot of being the best gin bar in Delhi, offering 35 in-house gin and tonic infusions centred around the juniper berry. SoulPantry takes a leaf out of this book, and celebrates the abundance of nature via the humble seed. Indigenous grains and ‘wellness’ bowls are the star of its menu, which also features nutrient-dense flatbreads, salads and artisanal coffee. And if you’re in want of a pizza delivery in Aerocity, look no further.
You can Realign the Senses, in Style
Inspired by chakra healing, the treatment ingredients at Andaz’s spa in Aerocity are blended exclusively for each customised session at the Apothecary Bar. The spa therapists use locally-sourced and seasonal fruits and herbs, as well as minerals and essential oils. Once the stress dissipates, guests enjoy themselves at recreational facilities like the pool with its sun deck, or sweat it out at the 24-hour fitness centre that’s furnished with the latest equipment.
Mix Business with Pleasure
Close enough to downtown Delhi as well as the business hub of Gurugram, Andaz offers 37,500 sq ft of innovative meeting and event spaces that feature fluid layouts and functional design. These environments dissolve barriers and encourage creative thinking, interaction and meaningful conversation. Andaz’s oval, pillarless ballroom is one of the largest, most extravagant wedding venues in Delhi, and can accommodate up to 1,500 guests at a time. The unique Elephant Path, built as a dramatic entrance for bridegrooms to arrive in style, adds a creative yet traditional touch to weddings hosted here. Eight Andaz Studios also offer residential-style meeting and event spaces, complete with open kitchens and an outdoor terrace.
The hospitality at Andaz doesn’t just extend to its human guests, but also to their four-legged friends. The five-star property is a pet-friendly hotel, so if you can’t bear to leave your beloved pooch or kitty behind, just bring them along the next time you check into this home away from home.
