My recent trip to Delhi on invite by Nitesh Gandhi-Cluster General Manager, Rajasthan, Marriott and General Manager, JW Marriott New Delhi was a memorable one in many ways. This beautifully designed property is strategically connected owing to it’s superb location and houses 511 luxurious rooms and suites, 30000 sq ft of flexible convention space, an indulgent Quan spa, a fitness centre and a swimming pool along with some fabulous food and beverage outlets. The hotel enjoys close proximity to Gurgaon and facilitates easy connectivity via the Delhi Metro and expressway. Gurgaon is an important financial centre for India in the north and multiple domestic and multinational companies have their operations located in this area. As far as frequent travelers like me are concerned, it’s really convenient that the hotel is just 7 minutes away from the airport. On arrival at the airport I was welcomed by the Cluster Airport Manager Operations Bhupinder Singh. After a seamless check in experience, I was led to my luxury suite. Lunch was at K3, an expansive restaurant which serves a wide variety of cuisines where I was joined by Rohit Sharma, Marketing Director JW Marriott New Delhi.
In the evening after an interesting chat with General Manager Nitesh Gandhi, I proceeded towards the Quan Spa. The spa is operational 24 hours and offers a range of holistic treatments and therapies that provide instant relaxation to soothe the mind, body and soul. Spa treatments such as Aromatherapy, Intensive Deep Tissue, Bespoke Skin Polish, Hot Stone therapy, Shirodhara ensure that there is a wide variety for everyone to choose from. After a relaxing massage it is a good idea to go for a warm bath in the Jacuzzi. The Quan spa also offers yoga sessions by trained experts at the pool deck for yoga enthusiasts. With six therapy suites including an Ayurvedic and a couple treatment suite, this award winning spa is very popular with locals and tourists alike. I enjoyed a relaxing rose and milk bath therapy in the spa during my stay.

While at the JW Marriott New Delhi Aerocity, one can choose from a wide array of several restaurants and lounges including K3 – New Delhi’s Food Theatre, the multi-cuisine restaurant with three open kitchens offering the best in Cantonese, Tuscan and North Indian cuisine; Delhi Baking Company, hotel’s patisserie and coffee shop; the Timothy Oulton Lounge which offers premium beverages, wines and spirits from around the world. Director of Food and Beverage Suranjit Sengupta and his efficient team ensure that each meal at the hotel is exceptional !
During my stay in the hotel, I experienced K3’s Sunday brunches that are very popular going by the busy restaurant; a live band enthralls guests with music and there are talented chefs whipping up delights at several counters spread out throughout the eatery. I tried delicious duck rolls created by Sous Chef Sudheer Thakur. On day two of my stay in the hotel, Executive Chef Sandeep Pande created multi grain dosas for me at breakfast on request.
DBC (Delhi Baking Company) is just the perfect place to grab a cup of coffee or a luscious mango pastry or a delicious plate of avocado toast in a cheerful atmosphere. This is also a great place for a sandwich or a salad when you are in the mood for a light lunch. DBC offers a range of gourmet products in the retail section and I was presented with a lavish hamper by the hotel’s team before leaving as a parting gift.
The hotel’s Executive Lounge is extremely popular with guests during evening hours and it is a good idea to visit this venue for a glass of bubbly with starters. It was a pleasant surprise to be served a delicious cocktail by Amit Singh Karki from the food and beverage team on one of the evenings.
Apart from serving the luxury business traveler as well as tourists, the hotel is a perfect venue for Meetings, Incentives, Conferences and Exhibitions. Located within driving distance of prominent business hubs in Delhi and Gurgaon and in close proximity to the airport, the hotel features one of the city’s largest meeting and conference facilities with over 24,000 sq. ft. of flexible convention spaces including a 12,000 sq. ft. pillar-less ballroom and a picturesque open-air courtyard.
My interactions with Dheeraj Valecha and Rupinder Kaur from the marketing team, Naveen Dahiya Chef Concierge were pleasant and made for a great stay. Here I would like to mention that each department in this hotel functions efficiently and adds up to make for a memorable guest experience. The JW Marriott New Delhi Aerocity is definitely worth several visits owing to it’s warmth, efficient service, excellent food and beverage options, gorgeous interiors and superlative hospitality!
