In April 2009 I fulfilled one of my ambitions and visited India. It was a train journey visiting Delhi, Shimla and Rajasthan. There aren't enough superlatives to describe how excellent it was.
Arrived at Claridges in Delhi, it was stunning, advertised as graciously Indian, and it was. We were treated like VIP’s, which of course we were! After the welcome and introductions we were free to do as we pleased. I spent the afternoon by the pool.
Located in the heart of the city, Claridges has been a landmark in Lutyen’s Delhi since the 1950’s. Set in 3 acres of land, the hotel is a low rise building within close proximity to the business district, ministries, diplomatic missions, shopping, cultural centres and historic landmarks. The excellent Ghandi museum is just around the corner.
