The plush Pullman Hotel opens in the heart of New Delhi’s Aerocity and leaves everyone feeling well fed, well rested and generally content
The one too many cooking shows flocking television channels worldwide might just be an indication that food has long moved from being a necessity to an art form, of sorts. The Pullman Hotel at the Aerocity in Delhi, embraces this new culture and prides itself on its ‘artsy’ ambience.
As my chauffeur-driven Innova pulled into the Aerocity to the tunes of Wakhra swagni, I glanced out at the impressive facade of the Pullman. Nothing too spectacular from the outside, I was prepared for just another run of the mill five-star hotel experience. And so, not too enthusiastically, I waited to see what I would uncover inside.
It wasn’t until I had checked in that I got around to taking a look at the lobby and the intricate raindrop shaped chandelier that hung from the ceiling. The plush couches strewn across the lobby were in shades of green and blue; each table decorated with a splash of the good old modern-meets-traditional style lamps. I was later told that the space was designed with a peacock theme in mind and the colours represented the feathers of the bird dancing in the first rain; poetic, to say the least.
