The Roseate New Delhi, India
Arriving is like entering a very stylish modern fortress in some India-set James Bond movie. You spiral your way into the hotel through enormous circled doors and smooth yellow corridors. Beyond reception, walkways criss-cross water between restaurants, spa, rooms and a little modern temple, where a ceremony takes place at 6pm daily. It is wonderfully peaceful but for the music that plays, quietly but incessantly, and occasional vibrations from an event disco.
