In Talk Spas’ “Spa Fit for a Sultaness” series, we profile the most luxurious and lavish spas in the world.

To the Westerner, India is about as exotic of a locale as it gets. To the spa enthusiast, India offers a plethora of rejuvenating treatments based on ancient healing traditions like Ayurveda, which create an authentic experience unlike any other available in the world. Aman New Delhi, located in the heart of the capitol city of India, is the ultimate hotel and spa to experience the pleasures of this incredible country’s rejuvenation therapies.

In a city as vibrant and admittedly chaotic as New Delhi, entering the resort of Aman New Delhi provides a respite of sublime tranquility. Ensconced in the colonial neighborhood of Lutyens, upon entering the modern-meets-Mughal lobby, one cannot help but be enamored by the cool, sophisticated ambiance that is only further enhanced by the fragrance of freshly cut jasmine flowers – a natural bio-conditioner. The delightful Indian touches cannot go unnoticed: handmade rugs, jaali screens and other aesthetic royal deco provide a taste of the incredible, ancient tradition of artistry that is inherent to the nation. The modern Mughal design carries over to the sixty-seven spacious suites that feature onion-arched windows and latticework walls, hand-made rugs, dark timber panels and khareda stone floors; also on offer are trays of Indian sweets, dried fruit and nut chikki in small hessian bags beside the giant cushioned beds. The suites offer the perfect respite from a day of sightseeing, which may include the nearby regal Rashtrapati Bhawan state office or stunning Lodhi garden. For those who like to spend time on the links, Aman New Delhi is located just south of the Delhi Golf Club – one of the oldest and most historic clubs and courses in all of Asia. As far as dining goes, a wide range of culinary delights are on offer within the resort including tapas, French Kaiseki and pan-Asian cuisine. Of course, at Aman New Delhi, it’s the spa that takes center stage and its world-class facilities and treatments are the ultimate way to relax and rejuvenate. The spa menu offers such epic escapes as the eight-hour Solah Shringar (which translates roughly as “sixteen adornments”) that features Ayurvedic treatments and mimics a bride’s pre-wedding adornment ritual. If that sounds like too long of a time commitment, one can simply choose to soak in one of the spa’s bamboo baths enhanced with floating rose petals. The Aman Spa also features the first India-based hair studio from celebrated stylist Kim Robinson, offering innovative hair styling concepts and impeccable service in an elegant studio.
