A Wellness Retreat at The Imperial New Delhi
The capital city of India presents a perfect blend of the country’s rich past and thriving present, making centuries-old monuments – from Qutub Minar, Red Fort and Humayun’s Tomb, as well as a labyrinth of narrow lanes, old havelis (mansions), and colourful bazaars – a part of modern daily life.
Located in the heart of New Delhi, The Imperial is an award-winning grand and historic hotel that seamlessly amalgamates the architecture of the Victorian, Colonial, and Art deco styles. Its on-property Imperial Spa offers guests luxuriously rejuvenating services that employ the healing properties of Ayuvedic therapies. The signature therapy – Imperial Depth – offers 90 blissful minutes of aromatherapy massage, using the spa’s own brand of organic massage oils to integrate deep tissue techniques with subtle pranic healing strokes.
Enjoy 20% off Imperial Spa treatments. Room rates from US$149 per night.
Experience 1,000 years of Indian History at The Leela Palace Bangalore
Known as India’s Garden City with its cool climate and sprawling tree-lined streets, Bangalore was once a haven for affluent retirees and over the past decade has transformed into the “Silicon Valley” of India, a global business hub teeming with multi-national IT, automotive, and pharmaceutical companies.
One of the best ways to explore Bangalore is through a walking guided tour, which the concierge from the Leela Palace Bangalore can arrange for a small fee. During an exploration across a four-mile radius from the palatial city hotel, travelers can explore more than 1,000 years of rich South Indian history, represented by heritage buildings, monuments and other sites.
Enjoy a complimentary Whiskey or Wine Flight Tasting experience during the stay. Room rates from US$190 per night.
A Culinary Sojourn at The Leela Palace Udaipur
Otherwise known as the “Venice of the East,” Udaipur is famous for its picturesque lakes, opulent palaces, and temples that are testament to the majestic Rajputana era that rose to prominence in the late 6th century and lasted through the early 20th century. Aside from the scenic attractions, the Rajasthan culinary scene in Udaipur presents a multitude of must-try gastronomic experiences, from street food to haute Indian cuisine.
The Leela Palace Udaipur’s Culinary Sojourn program offers two full days of experiential Rajasthan dining that includes interactive sessions with hotel chefs, a city tour that offers an insight into the secrets of Rajasthan street food, and a glorious sunset cruise followed by a sumptuous dinner for two by Lake Pichola, in addition to luxurious accommodations.
