Aman New Delhi
No one is able to escape the tumult of New Delhi, but Aman embraced this challenge, unleashing the equivalent of design Xanax—interior spaces in warm sandstone; acres of manicured lawns that enclose the hotel like a verdant moat— at its new urban resort. We wonder: Will anyone use the plunge pools on the private terraces adjoining most of the rooms? Or will they dive instead into the full-size pool that Italian designer Rosita Missoni described as “a perfect length for swimming laps, which you rarely find in a hotel,’’ never mind one nestled at the center of a seductive and confound-ing capital city.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
