New Leela Palace To Debut In New Delhi

By Pardhasaradhi Gonuguntla

New Delhi’s newest five-star hotel is rising on three acres of prime land in India’s capital. Just in time for the 2010 Commonwealth Games, The Leela Palaces, Hotels & Resorts will welcome its newest luxury property in a convenient location at the cover of Africa Avenue and Vinay Marg in Chanakyapuri, the Central Business District and the city’s diplomatic enclave.

The Leela Palace Kempinski New Delhi will have 260 rooms and suites, five restaurants, two bars, a spa by ESPA, a fitness center and a swimming pool on its roof terrace. An outpost of MEGU, the Japanese restaurant, will open at The Leela along with an intimate Indian restaurant, another featuring Italian cuisine with an open kitchen and an all-day dining restaurant also with a “live” kitchen.

Inspired by the style of Edwin Lutyens, the architect who laid out New Delhi almost 100 years ago, The Leela Palace’s design will combine neo-Classical architecture with elements from north Indian palaces.

Deluxe rooms will measure over 500 square feet with suites starting at 785 square feet. Three Royal Suites (up to 1,500 square feet) will have private pools and the Presidential Suite will be an impressive 4,000 square feet.

To accommodate meetings and incentives, The Leela will have a number of meeting rooms including a 5,800-square-foot ballroom.
