Always eyeing for improvements and better guest-experience, The Leela Palaces, Hotels and Resorts—owned by a Brookfield Asset Management-sponsored private real estate fund—is now slated to elevate the guest experience further at their property in the Pink City, states a hotel-issued release. This transformation includes an overhaul of its product and service enhancements by early 2021.

Currently, the Rajputana heritage-inspired palatial property boasts of eight acres of landscaped gardens shadowed daintily by the Aravali ranges. 200 suites, including 88 private villas; 50,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor event spaces, including a pillar-less Grand Ballroom; verdant lawns; a swimming pool; a state-of-the-art gymnasium; and a spa complete the opulent vibes here. Its easy accessibility from New Delhi and well-thought location in close distance to the city’s places of interest and bustling markets adds to its appeal.
