The Lodhi Hotel Delhi

  

The Lodhi ethos is simple and easy luxury. It is also an ethos of contrasts, from the dynamic and vibrant atmosphere in the restaurants, courtyards, and public areas to the seclusion, peace, and club-like atmosphere of the seven floors of guest accommodation.

The Lodhi epitomizes contemporary India both culturally and artistically with its changing art exhibitions, food, environment, guests, and visitors; but it also reflects tradition and history with its name, location, predecessors, and city. The property offers comfort, warmth, recognition, smiles, and personal attention. And the staff is discretely efficient with high standards of service and commitment.

After ‘growing up’ as an Aman city resort since opening in 2009 , Lodhi now is proudly an independent, standalone entity, a boutique city property reflecting all that it was as an Aman resort and more now that it is The Lodhi.

Located on the edge of Lutyens Delhi and ten minutes from Connaught Place in the heart of the city, The Lodhi is easily accessible from the Indira Gandhi Airport, some 25 kilometers and 40 minutes away. Across the road is the Delhi Golf Course and adjacent is the medieval village of Nizamuddin and Humayun Tombs.
