OT: Favourite hotel in the world?
Wasim Akram: I would have to say The Oberoi, New Delhi (from Rs 19,500;

OT: Last visited?
Wasim Akram: My last visit was in February 2009, just for a week.

OT: The experience?
Wasim Akram: It was definitely a different experience; it harnesses the beauty of the past and yet seems to cradle contemporary luxury. My stay was very rejuvenating. I had a week and the hotel made sure I got the best of everything during my holiday. My suite offered every conceivable luxury. But the best part was the spectacular view of the Delhi Golf Club and of Humayun’s Tomb. I was thankful for the constant internet access and the round-the-clock business centre they allowed me to keep up with my work, which never stops, even when I’m on vacation.

OT: What was the food like?
Wasim Akram: The food was superb. I was very surprised to see that the hotel presented such a variety of cuisines. I especially liked the European and Oriental menus.

OT: The ‘USP’?
Wasim Akram: The thing that struck me the most about the hotel is how it is opulent without being over the top. It’s the perfect blend of traditional and contemporary. Also, it’s got one of the best locations — considering that it’s in the heart of the city, it offers some of the greenest views around.

OT: Do you intend to visit again, and when?
Wasim Akram: I would really like to visit again. A two-week trip with my kids is in the pipeline, perhaps this summer.
