A planned day in Delhi could include:

  • Yoga in Lodhi Gardens with the hotel’s yoga teacher – Lodhi Gardens are a short drive away in our Delhi tuk tuk.
  • Breakfast poolside at the Aman, New Delhi.
  • A journey into Old Delhi with an experienced and empathetic guide to visit the spice market; sample traditional kebabs in the tiny restaurants behind the Jama Masjid, and shop for textiles, silver and rare jewellery.
  • Visit the Red Fort, among other monuments, from the Mughal era.
  • Cycle through the lanes of Old Delhi with ‘The Flying Dutchman’ on an escorted, yet adrenalin-filled tour dodging goats and buffalo, rickshaws and hordes of people.
  • Return to the Aman for late afternoon tea followed by a 90-minute spa treatment to counter the rigors of sightseeing
  • Spend the evening eating a ‘thali’ of different Indian foods or relax over tapas and music in the hotel’s local bar.
