India’s premier chain of luxury hotels brings the global traveller the best of the East and the West, traditional Indian hospitality with contemporary international standards. As India’s most dynamic hospitality chain, ITC Hotels has set new standards for excellence in the hotel industry, in fields as diverse as accommodation, cuisine, environment and guest safety. In this hotel you will find a true reflection of the India’s culture, imbued with luxury and imparted with responsibility.
ITC Maurya, a landmark in the capital city of India, New Delhi, with distinctive architecture and state of the art facilities, has been acknowledged as the preferred residence of visiting heads of state and global icons for over 30 years.
Situated in the heart of the exclusive Diplomatic Enclave and surrounded by views of Delhi’s green belt, this business hotel is a conveniently close to the Indira Gandhi International Airport.
The imposing structure of timeless luxury boasts inspiring architecture and a majestic ambience, a tribute to the age of the great Mauryan Dynasty that created the golden era of Indian history.
Around the hotel you can find priceless and exquisite collection of art.
An outstanding outdoor pool and pampering spa treatments are available, depending on your mood.
The internet is not included in the price and it’s quite expensive. It will cost you around $10 plus taxes per day for this unnecessary pleasure to stay connected with the world. But hey, you can connect four devices for this price, so it’s worth it. At least that’s what the receptionist said. Worth it or not, it’s your decision.
I was staying in the Executive Club room, an elegant combination of comfort and executive workspace. Complimentary coffee and tea maker are available in the room, accompanied with exclusive selection of French press coffee and tea.
My only remark is that the curtains were extremely wrinkled, spoiling the overall impression of the room. That’s simply unacceptable if you are the best hotel in New Delhi.
The hotel also houses Bukhara, rated as the best restaurant in Asia and among the top 50 restaurants in the world, whose specialty is traditional North Indian food prepared in a clay oven.
There is a long waiting list, so reservation is a must. The food is amazing and the ambient is great. The atmosphere is boosted with the open style glass kitchen, where you can observe how your food is being prepared. Don’t miss the Dal Bukhara, lentil specialty that’s being prepared overnight. The food here will spoil your senses and you’ll never stop asking for more.
Overall, stunning hotel with unparalleled service in the capital of India. It doesn’t matter if you are business traveller or here for pleasure, you can’t deny this pure luxury and Indian hospitality.
