Built in 1983, Hyatt Regency Delhi is Hyatt’s flagship five-star property in India.
What’s it like?
While the hotel is dressed in aesthetic and modern interiors, its impressive façade is inspired by the Golden Age of the Gupta period in Indian history. I see a mix of business and leisure crowd as soon as I enter the elegant lobby.
Where is it?
The property is located in south Delhi, five minutes away from Sarojini Nagar, a well-known market area for shopaholics, and a 15-minute drive from the Hauz Khas Village, one of the poshest areas in the Indian capital. The hotel is an easy 20-minute hop from Indira Gandhi International Airport and is also in close from proximity to Delhi’s notable markets and malls such as Emporio, DLF, and the Ambience Mall. The hotel also has a close proximity to embassies and central business districts.
The hotel offers 494 guestrooms spread across different categories including a range of beautiful suites. I stayed in a Regency Executive suite, which offered me breathtaking views of the city. This 53 sqm one-bedroom suite is designed in a contemporary style while maintaining touches of Indian culture. I particularly liked the room’s warm interiors in pastel shades (complemented by modern furnishings) and walls adorned with local artefacts. Other features include a king-size bed, a massive marble deluxe bathroom and a large work desk with high-speed internet. My suite on the Regency Club floor also gave me access to the Regency Club lounge, which comes with a host of premium offerings. The Club is an ideal location for conducting a business meeting as well.
Food and drink
I had dinner at T.K’S Oriental Grill, the restaurant serving pan Asian cuisine, including Japanese, Indonesian and Thai. With its open wood-fire oven concept, La Piazza is a must-visit for fine Italian fare in the city. The place is also known for its elaborate antipasti buffet for brunch on Sundays. A multi-cuisine restaurant, Café; The China Kitchen, a contemporary Chinese restaurant and the Polo Lounge, a classic lounge bar are some of its other F&B offerings.
Hyatt Regency Delhi is a quintessential business hotel offering more than 2,977 sqm of meetings and events space, with many different venues. One such space is a brand new Oval Room at The Mansion which has an open show kitchen.
Being a fitness enthusiast, I chose to spend some time doing cardio at the hotel’s fully-equipped fitness centre that is housed in Club Olympus Spa, Salon and Fitness. In addition to various rejuvenating treatments, it features a sauna, a steam bath, a whirlpool, a beauty salon and an outdoor swimming pool.
Verdict: A strategically located property replete with state-of-the-art luxury and business facilities.
Price: Upwards of ₹15,000
