Claridges seamlessly blends historic charm, contemporary facilities and stellar hospitality. The hotel has a prime location in central Delhi near diplomatic missions, markets, and historic sites, including India Gate and Rashtrapati Bhawan. There are several grand lobbies and reading lounges, but my favorite space is the garden and pool area. Reserve a private cabana under swaying palm trees and sample one of the 75 vodkas served at Aura, the in-house vodka bar. Be sure to book a reservation at Sevilla, a Spanish Riviera dining experience with tapas, paella, and the best sangria in Delhi.
