The Lodhi in Delhi will treat you like a maharajah

No trip to India can be considered complete with a few days in cultural and historic, yet also contemporary Delhi, the capital, and no visit to Delhi can be a success without a stay at the Lodhi Hotel. Situated less than a mile from the tomb of the famous Mughal Emperor Humayun, The Lodhi is a true sanctuary from the constant buzz of Delhi, a luxurious property with a generous outdoor swimming pool, tennis and squash courts, salon, fitness centre, spa and massage centre, steam hammam, a library, a cigar lounge and a business centre on premises. Guest rooms are serene and modern with private balconies. All have private plunge pools. What a location The Lodhi enjoys: 2.5 miles from India Gate and Pragati Maidan. Indira Gandhi International Airport is 12 miles away and New Delhi Railway Station is a short 1.5 mile drive. But the real reason to stay here is the property’s joint general managers, Robyn Bickford and Manav Garewal. Two more charming people one would never hope to meet.  Robyn is funny and gregarious, the kindest of genuine host s with a keen sense of hospitality. Manav has an eagle eye for detail and perfection. Together they operate The Lodhi with the smoothness of ivory and exactitude of a Patek Philippe watch. The smiling staff is trained to a royal level and no detail is missed. That is not to say there is no fun to be had here.  The Lodhi is where diplomats, fashion models, toffs, stylish expats and discerning globetrotters check in, for a drink, for dinner or just to hug Robyn and Manav. The result is a constant house party atmosphere of very electric and attractive people. Was that Viscount David Linley we saw sitting quietly having a drink at The Lodhi? Indeed it was. The restaurant serves very fine pan-Indian, Mediterranean and South East Asian cuisines. Room service options are available 24-hours a day. If you want to be treated like a maharajah or a Viscount, make The Lodhi your headquarters in Delhi, you will not be sorry. Visit Or you are welcome to email Robyn on
