Delhi: Aman, New Delhi

Courtesy Amanresorts

In a city where space is a luxury, the Aman, New Delhi gives guests the luxury of space. When the property, only the second of the company’s city hotels, debuts in mid-December (the one in Beijing, which opened last month, was first), it will be an oasis in the middle of the urban desert. All 31 rooms and most of the 36 one-, two-, and three-bedroom suites have their own terraces and plunge pools, the deluxe suites face a quiet inner courtyard, and the tennis courts, spa, and large lap pool are in a sunken lawn that feels entirely removed from the buzz of the city. In truth, though, that buzz is just outside the hotel’s walls and carved-sandstone screens—modern takes on the traditional Moghul jalis—as the hotel sits in the heart of the city. For those who can’t wait, the Aman restaurant (Indian, French, Asian) will open next month, and the Lodhi (Mediterranean, Catalonian, tapas) in early December. From $750 to $2,400.
