Dining

The hotels four restaurants, each serving cuisine from a different part of the world, offer an excellent choice for all tastes. Pickwick’s multi-cuisine buffet menu is perfect for families, serving continental and Indian dishes, as well as having a sushi-bar. The other options include Jade, a fine-dining Chinese restaurant; and the romantic Sevilla, an open air Mediterranean restaurant with a great choice of tapas, as well as the Italian classics, served  at candle-lit tables overlooking the gardens. A highlight however is Dhaba, an Indian restaurant, designed with the ambience of a Punjabi village. Specialities included the mouth-watering butter chicken and the sizzling ‘Kanastree Baingan’. After dinner head to the chic vodka bar Aura to enjoy a cocktail and some live music.

The charming Ye Olde Bakery is one of the oldest Bakeries in Delhi and is famous throughout for its ‘Bitter Sweet Chocolate Cake’. A great spot for a coffee and if the cake doesn’t tempt you, the selection of breads and pastries may well do.

Rooms

All 132 rooms are beautifully designed blending contemporary luxury with 19th century British design. There are 6 categories to choose from, all with the option of twin or double beds. The entry-level Superior rooms are compact so we would recommend upgrading to a deluxe room for a bit more space. Within the deluxe category you can also opt for a balcony or terrace room with views over the pool or gardens.

For further space, interconnecting rooms are available or opt for one of the suites. The Claridges Suite, at the top end, has four separate rooms, a large balcony overlooking the gardens, and a plunge bath tub.

Family

Children are very welcome at The Claridges, and its spacious gardens, good sized pool, and range of food options, makes it a good choice for families visiting Delhi.

Extra beds can be provided, and interconnecting rooms are available. Additionally, the hotel does offer a baby-sitting service.

Sustainability

The Claridges is making efforts towards being more sustainable by removing single use plastics and giving guests the chance to opt out of daily room cleans and towel changes. The hotel uses renewable energy and as much of the food served as possible is sourced locally, with increased efforts to reduce food wastage. It also invests back into community and sustainability projects.

The Claridges Foundation is also working to provide disadvantaged individuals, within local communities, with the skills required to work within the hospitality industry. They also work with the Ramakrishna Mission Society providing education, particularly to women, on hygiene and developing healthy habits to prevent disease and water contamination.

Location

The hotel is in a great central location in the heart of New Delhi, within easy reach of the city’s main sights, and only a 30-minute drive from the airport. The peaceful Lodi Gardens are just a few minutes’ walk away, are there are some excellent local markets to explore.
