The Imperial stands as an icon of luxury, nestled in the heart of India’s bustling capital. Spanning an eight-acre estate on Janpath, formerly Queensway, it holds court as the sole oasis amidst a sea of 32 million people. Since its inception in 1936, The Imperial has been a beacon of glamour, drawing Hollywood celebrities, Bollywood luminaries, and global royalty to its distinguished embrace. Its historic grounds witnessed the grandeur of 85 Maharajas and Maharanis convened in regal splendour during the Royal Durbar.

Today, The Imperial continues to enchant with a blend of old-world charm and modern sophistication. Each of its 235 elegantly appointed rooms and lavish suites exudes illustrious elegance, seamlessly blending heritage with cutting-edge technology. Hundreds of hand-knotted carpets weave tales of artisanal mastery, while the world’s largest private collection of 5,500 Indo-European artworks from 17th & 18th century, offer a captivating glimpse into the region’s rich cultural tapestry of a bygone era.

One can embark on the finest epicurean journey through an array of world class restaurants. From the intricate flavors of Italian cuisine to the bold spices of Asia, each dish at The Imperial reflects a dedication to culinary mastery and an unwavering commitment to authenticity. Whether indulging in a light Indian lunch or dinner at the hotel’s Indo-European Brasserie 1911 or exploring the culinary delights of San Gimignano and Spice Route for true Italian and Asian flavors, every bite invites guests to savor the moment.

The hotel’s three bars beckon with their unparalleled ambience and libations, offering a sensory escape like no other. Meanwhile the crowning jewel of The Imperial is its Wellness Sanctuary, spanning an impressive 44,000 square feet. Here guests are enveloped in a realm of rejuvenation and relaxation, guided by a resident Ayurvedic doctor and expert therapists. Complimentary yoga sessions at the Yoga Sanctum, state-of-the-art fitness facilities, and impeccable makeovers at the Imperial Salons further enhance the sojourn, ensuring tranquility and indulgence at every turn.
