Started in 1965, The Oberoi, which overlooks the Unesco World Heritage Site—the 16th-century tomb of Emperor Humayun is prominent and prestigious, in every possible way. Since the 60s, it has served as an exemplary example of refined dining, hospitality and luxury.
New York-based Adam D. Tihany of Tihany Design has given the Hotel a modern makeover without changing its ethereal and classic aura. Tihany boasts a stellar portfolio of clients having collaborated on projects with the world’s greatest chefs and hotels like Thomas Keller, Daniel Boulud, Heston Blumenthal, Mandarin Oriental Las Vegas and Four Seasons Dubai among others.
As part of the refurbishment, the Oberoi has done something truly inspirational. It has installed a state-of-the-art air purification system to ensure guests breathe easy in all of their 220, which include 350 sq.ft-34 brightly done up suites.
For those looking for a real royal stay, the sprawling Kohinoor suite spread across 3,500sq ft is an exquisite experience. With teak furniture, handwoven carpets, Italian marble bathrooms, oak wood desks, lithographs and what not make it fit for business travellers and loyalists, alike. You can also savour 24 hour in-room dining with butlers in tow.
When it’s time to wine and dine, you can head to the Hotel’s many spectacular restaurants and bar. If you’re in the mood for highly-evolved Indian cuisine, reserve a table at Omya that’s an ode to our country’s varied micro-cuisines, gastronomy and food culture. With Michelin-starred, London-based Chef Alfred Prasad at the helm, you can expect only sensory enthrallment!
Offering views of the Delhi Golf Course, the Hotel’s Chinese rooftop restaurant – Baoshuan serves distinct cuisine from 40 regions of China prepared by yet another Michelin-starred chef Andrew Wong. You can pair your Peking duck and hand-rolled dimsums with drinks infused with Oriental flavours and spices like five-spice mix, shiso, sesame oil, etc.
The Club Bar and Cigar Lounge are equally exciting places to unwind, smoke a cigar, sip a drink and discuss politics. The Club Bar with its rich red and maroon hues, dark wooden panels and brass light fixtures makes it an ideal setting to enjoy curated beverages, single malts, tea, coffee, etc. The Lounge which is housed inside the Bar offers the best Cuban cigars. Patrons also have the option to store their prized smokes in personalised lockers.
