Elated with the launch, Karan Kapur, Executive Director, K Hospitality, mentions, “As we celebrate our group’s 50th anniversary in the F&B business this year, the launch of Araya Bagh New Delhi is a small step by us towards becoming a leading player in the luxury wedding space in the country. We are excited about this one-of-a-kind collaboration between the illustrious Tahiliani Design Studio and our catering arm, Catering Collective. We are confident that the discerning audience of New Delhi and beyond are going to find this iconic space ideal for luxury occasions of all sizes, from intimate parties to grand events.”
Amid a plethora of expansive lawns and halls in the city, Araya Bagh emerges as the first conceptual venue designed by a celebrated designer. The artistic concept of Araya Bagh New Delhi is a direct extension of the Tahiliani Design Studio and Tarun Tahiliani’s hallmark philosophy of ‘India Modern’. In borrowing design elements from the rich art heritage of India, reimagined with a contemporary touch, the space is elevated with intricate elements like stone mosaics, antique mirrors, custom pendant lights and lanterns and sky-lit roofs, all juxtaposed against an understated tone-on-tone colour palette. On conceptualizing Araya Bagh, Tarun Tahiliani says, “Design is an ongoing process – viscerally churned from education, exposure, experience, and one’s own trial and error to evolve a signature, a philosophy, a unique language. To this, we hope to bring our brand of India modern comfort, fineness, and longevity and create a harmony to make the experience of spaces– blissful in every way.”
At Araya Bagh New Delhi, a cohesive design brings aesthetics and utility together. The space is zoned out according to access, priority, and privacy for luxury weddings and related events; brand launches and photoshoots; premium exhibitions and art shows; and corporate training and award functions.
