Culinary Journeys
For guests wanting to take advantage of New Delhi’s vast and vibrant flavors, I recommend a culinary tour. Le Cirque, located in The Leela Palace New Delhi, leads a culinary tour of the city’s best restaurants. Stops include SET’Z at DLF Emporio, Indian Accent, The Manor, Dakshin Restaurant, and Bukhara Restaurant.

One thing I like about the tour is that it also includes an exclusive cooking demonstration from Le Cirque’s chef and the opportunity to learn about the many colors, flavors and aromas in Indian cooking.

The Culinary Journeys Tour is created in partnership with The Leela Palace, Le Cirque, and Pacific Delight Tours and can be booked through Leela Culinary Journeys website. The culinary tour schedule is also flexible enough that travelers can explore New Delhi between meals. The tour can also extend to Varanasi, Jaipur, and Udaipur for travelers with extended itineraries.

A Palace Like No Other
While in Delhi, The Leela Palace is a great choice for a place to stay. The property is absolutely beautiful and every detail has been thought of. From the moment you walk in the door you are greeted with flowers and the traditional pooja, the staff takes your luggage and you become enchanted with all the beautiful flowers in the lobby and the lovely smells.

The hotel is beautiful to walk around. There is tons of art that covers the walls from traditional Indian gods to more modern pieces. Plus, there are beautiful gardens to experience.

The rooftop is a must visit as there is an infinity pool that overlooks the city.

The Leela Palace is an incredible place to stay and you are treated like royalty.

Jamavar Restaurant
While Staying at The Leela Palace in New Delhi I ate at the Indian Restaurant, Jamavar. The Leela Palace has a number of different types of restaurants to choose from but while in India I thought it was best to eat Indian food. I am so glad I did as the food at Jamavar was the best meal that I had in New Delhi. I was eating by myself and there were a few dishes I wanted to try so the chef made me smaller portions so I was able to taste more. Each dish was filled with so much flavor and melted in your mouth...I had an eggplant dish, traditional dhal and paneer (cottage cheese). Next time I am in New Delhi I will definitely be going back.

The Leela Palace is home to the ESPA spa in New Delhi. If you are staying at the hotel having a spa service is a must or if you are in New Delhi looking for a place with great treatments, ESPA Spa is the place to go. The menu of services ranges from massages to facials to traditional Ayurvedic treatments.

I treated myself to a facial and it was pure bliss. From the moment you walk into the spa you are greeted with a refreshing drink of lemon, honey and ginger. The spa itself is very peaceful and offers you a chance to disconnect and relax. The actual service took place in a beautiful room and they used quality products that made my face feel rejuvenated and refreshed. There is a sauna and steam room that you have access to after any treatment which is worth taking advantage of. Plus, you can purchase the products that they use to take back home.
