A museum of luxuries has opened in Chennai, and it can be slept in. A grand marble staircase, the color of honey, welcomes guests at the ITC Grand Chola, leading them past a series of glazed glass doors lit by crystal chandeliers and ascending gracefully to the strains of South Indian pipe music. Elegant women in saris direct you hither and thither; there is a shallow pool of crystalline waters with real lotus flowers, yellow and pink. The first impression: a true palace. All of Chennai had been awaiting the arrival of this 600-room, state-of-the-art wonder, with an iPad in every room and understated glamour to spare.

Room to Book:

All the spacious rooms have advanced in-room technology and stylish marble bathrooms, but Room 2547 overlooks the rooftop marina's pool and gardens and has the best views in the hotel.

Insider Tip:

The Kaya Kalp Spa has a barber shop just for men, who receive a hot Sicilian shave and full upper body massage while relaxing in imported Italian barber chairs. Meanwhile, ladies should ask for the synchronized massage, where two therapists simultaneously apply a blend of Eastern and Western techniques with the same pressure, speed, and strokes.
