Lodhi Road, New Delhi, India

When you go to The Lodhi (as I had in the past, many times), luxury family hotel is the last thing you’re thinking. The art is fabulous, the space is minimalist and the place screams luxury – it looks anything but family-friendly! Things changed (for the better, I assure you) the minute I discovered that every room comes with a private plunge pool. We just returned from out first staycation at this kid-friendly hotel (yes, I said it!) singing a completely different tune!

  • Baby cot
  • Bottle sterilizer
  • Child toiletries
  • High chair
  • Child menu
  • Doctor on call
  • Interconnecting rooms
  • Babysitting services (INR 500/hr)


Family Favourites:
  • Its central location is hard to beat. I popped my head out of the balcony and the historic Humayun’s Tomb stared right back at me.
  • The rooms! They are big, they are spacious and they are beautiful! Every room comes with a (massive) private balcony and a private plunge pool that opens directly into the room. Can you imagine the jumping and dunking the kids unleashed onto this beautiful mass of water the minute they spotted it!?!
  • The food here is fantastic. Whether it’s room service you’re ordering or the elaborate buffet downstairs, it’s definitely one of the best you’ll find in Delhi. My older one’s pursuit of the “Best chorizo pizza in Delhi” ended here.
  • A beautiful main pool for those not-so-beautiful hot Delhi afternoons!
  • Tennis courts and hard-to-find squash courts for the sporty ones.


Parent’s Perks:
  • Art aficionados will go gaga over the beautiful art that adorns the wall from one of India’s most renowned galleries. Interestingly, all the art is for sale too.
  • A spa with some gorgeous hammam rooms.
  • Library and cigar lounge to unwind at.


The Hotel:
  • City centre hotel
  • Distance to international airport – 18 km
  • 40 Rooms & suites
  • 2 Restaurant
  • 2 Bars
  • Swimming pool
  • Spa
  • Salon
  • Fitness Centre



Mandy’s Tip: This hotel (formerly The Aman Hotel) doesn’t have much for the tinies. But between uncountable splashes in the private plunge pool and main pool, watching a kids’ DVD provided by the hotel and climbing giant (concrete) elephant at the entrance, my kids were sorted!
