The Oberoi

Dr Zakir Hussain Marg, Delhi Golf Club, Golf Links, New Delhi, Delhi 110003, India

New Delhi’s first modern business and luxury hotel, built in 1965, is a contemporary white box amid a sea of greenery. After a $100 million makeover overseen by starchitect Adam Tihany, The Oberoi now has 220 large rooms inspired by Sir Edwin Lutyens’s original plans for the city, with peacock-blue accents, spacious bathtubs, and super fast WiFi. Beloved restaurant threesixty˚ maintains its see-and-be-seen status thanks to its airier layout, and a new rooftop bar has become the go-to cocktail spot on warm-weather days. But the enthusiastic, attentive staff remains unchanged, earning adoration from repeat guests who appreciate the brand’s reliable and faultless service. Indoor and outdoor pools, a spa, proximity to a large golf course, and the convenient location just south of Delhi Gate make this hotel a great place to relax at the beginning or end of a countrywide tour.

The Oberoi Patisserie and Delicatessen

Yes, this high-end bakery is located in The Oberoi, one of the most exclusive hotels in Delhi. No, you will not have the ethnic charm of visiting a local sweet shop. However, don’t let this deter you from grabbing a seat at the satvario marble counters. The award-winning Oberoi hotel has created the award-winning patisserie and deli with finite attention to detail. Spread across 4,000 square feet, the space features six well-defined sections including cakes, pastries, and savory items. The homemade chocolate and cookie section? Sublime.
