The Luxe List 2011, India: The Oberoi, Gurgaon, New Delhi

Situated amid 3.5 hectares of gardens in upmarket Gurgaon, this minimalist glass-and-steel oasis marks a departure from the classic feel of many other Oberoi properties. The hotel’s 202 spacious guest rooms (starting at 57 square meters) and suites abound in natural light, with floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking azure reflection pools and surrounding greenery.

The design philosophy of height, light, and space is complemented by the rooms’ minimalist chic—mother-of-pearl inlays, teak wall panels, bold throw rugs—and a host of high-tech gadgetry.

While the top three suites boast full-size private pools, all rooms come with the services of a personal butler trained by a former retainer of the Dutch royal family. The property also offers a 24-hour spa, an Olympic-size swimming pool, a retail arcade, and a fleet of Rolls-Royces and BMWs that will take the edge off the 30-minute ride into downtown Delhi.

443 Udyog Vihar, Gurgaon; 91-124/245-1234;; doubles from US$710
