Thai-inspired water features and monolithic sculptures combine at this striking design hotel in New Delhi.
“Set in lush grounds dotted with frangipani and mango trees, the Dusit Devarana is a hip hideaway a 15-minute drive from South Delhi’s swank restaurants and boutiques. This two-story hotel is defined by water; pools of aquamarine, violet and indigo dot the eight-acre grounds, and immense sandstone pillars inspired by Mumbai’s Elephanta Caves contrast with the natural elements. The curvaceous polished concrete public spaces showcase epic art installations, including a revolving elliptical metalwork disc suspended over the foyer.”
