Suite of the week: Experience larger-than-life regality at Kohinoor Suite, The Oberoi, New Delhi.


Just like the magnanimous traits and size made the ‘Kohinoor Diamond’ the most desirable precious stone in history, the same can be said of the larger-than-life Kohinoor Suite at The Oberoi, New Delhi. Dripping in grandeur, elegance, and luxury, the suite enthralls as soon as one enters first, with a liberating sense of space followed by the sprawling views of Delhi Golf Course and the 16th century Mughal Emperor Humayun’s Tomb, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Kohinoor Suite is an epitome of comfort with a dedicated area for your activities with an irresistible sense of calm. It is achieved by the abounding use of a creamy palette of beige, champagne, and caramel instills and charming walls clad in pale lime green Indian silk. The fine natural textures of linen, soft leather, and polished teakwood floors throughout the space amalgamate perfectly with the hues used to make a gigantic space seem even more commodious. Guests can welcome ample light to their lavish abode and kick start their days with a healthy dose of Vitamin D owing to the floor-to-ceiling windows. The suite opens into a formal entry hall where guests are met by their personal butler, who then leads you into the living room that’s impressive with a fully-equipped study in place. Hearty meals and unforgettable conversations have their own special space in the grand dining room with a fully equipped service pantry. Rest and rejuvenation are found in the uber-luxurious master bedroom, which includes a treadmill that stands directly by a large window and a massage bed, along with a rarely found, vast walk-in wardrobe. The grandness of the aptly named Kohinoor Suite is apparent from the minute one steps in to be welcomes by Lutyens style flower table and a life-size bronze sculpture handcrafted by the recognized Indian sculptor, Dimpy Menon. The suite has a personality of its own on account of the classic wainscot walls, hand-knotted rugs, Lutyens’-inspired furniture, hand-woven silk-upholstered cushions, gossamer-like hand-embroidered linen curtains, and soft cove lighting.


Sitting areas are aplenty in the lavish Kohinoor Suite, a cozy leather sofa cluster on one end, and pops of coffee tables and peg tables sprigging around the extensive area. The master bedroom is dominated by the luxurious king-size bed with a magnificent bathroom, finished in Greek Thasos marble, features a double vanity counter, a separate glass-enclosed shower cubicle, and a large free-standing bathtub that sits by the window so that guests can enjoy sweeping views of the verdurous Delhi Golf Course. The Kohinoor Suite pays a great deal of attention to your comfort. It provides vital amenities right inside a relaxation room with a massage bed so that guests can experience the incredible Oberoi Spa treatments in their own personal space. The 3,500 square feet Kohinoor Suite perched on the 8th floor is truly the jewel in The Oberoi, New Delhi crown.
