One of the Fort's most famous buildings, this Aman hotel boasts lashings of colonial opulence. Its reception rooms (all polished teak floors and period furnishings) are quite something: witness spiffily dressed staff waltzing around bearing gifts (cocktails) to guests. There are several categories of rooms – all luxurious and immaculately presented, and with four-poster beds – though the least expensive are smallish.
In its previous incarnation as the New Oriental Hotel, the building housed generations of travellers. You can recall those days – and the Dutch family who ran the place – in the beautiful library, which, like the gorgeous pool, offers a reason to leave your room.
