Sleek is an understatement for the latest Oberoi. The building’s glass lobby area, known as the “jewel box,” and the tiled reflection pool that lies in front of it make strong impressions on visitors as they approach the complex. The luxury hotel, which opened its door to guests earlier this month, was designed by the Singapore-based architectural firm RSP, and cost around 4 billion rupees ($90 million) to build. Located outside Delhi, in the suburb and business center of Gurgaon, the hotel complex sprawls over 9 acres of land; it includes its own slice of forest.
The water features and gardens set the hotel apart from its corporate surroundings while glass, mirror-finish steel and spotless white marble define the character of its interior. The décor, modern yet warm, tastefully nods to the hotel’s Indian heritage. LTW Designworks, the firm in charge of the Oberoi’s interior design, opted for a color palette of earthy tones and bright red.
The Oberoi, Gurgaon, is India’s thirteenth Oberoi hotel and the second in the Delhi area. It has 202 rooms, of which 15 are suites. The hotel employs around 400 people. Prices range from 30,000 rupees ($675) a night for a single Deluxe Room to 300,000 rupees ( $ 6740) for the Presidential Suite. This makes it a lot more expensive than the adjoining Trident, which is also controlled by the Oberoi Group. There, prices ranged from 19,000 rupees ($430) to 110,000 ( $2500) rupees for its Presidential Suite at the time of writing.
