About
Hauz Khas village was known in the medieval period for the amazing buildings built around a reservoir and drew a large congregation of Islamic scholars and students to the Madrasa for Islamic education. Today, some of India's most prestigious institutes are situated in the neighborhood, including the Indian Institute of Technology, the All India Institute of Medical Sciences and the Indian Institute of Foreign Trade. The village itself retains its old-world charm, enhanced by well-manicured green parks planted with ornamental trees all around with walk ways, and surrounded by gentrified market and residential complexes which have sprung up around the old village. The reservoir itself has been reduced in size and well landscaped with water fountains. The village structure that existed in the medieval period was modernized in mid-1980s, projecting a quiet, upscale identity that attracts tourists from all parts of the world.

The area
Neighborhood: Hauz Khas Village
Known as ‘The National Capital of Ethnic Chic’, the hip and trendy Hauz Khas Village is a beautiful urban village nestled in a corner among the ruins of domed tombs of Muslim royalty from the 14th to 16th centuries, that merge into the modern day Deer Park. Old homes here have been converted into fashion boutiques & chic homestays, art galleries, jewellery shops, book and antique stores, multi-cuisine restaurants, bars and nightclubs. HKV might be full of arterial narrow lanes but it is the epicenter of Delhi’s most vibrant social life. In the spring and winter evenings, visitors can stroll along the lake, watch the beautiful sunset from the ruins of the fort or sip a cocktail at one of the many rooftop bars and restaurants overlooking it.

Hauz Khas "village" is a collection of a few houses overlooking a park with a lake. You can walk in the park as well. The "village" is mainly a collection of bars, some art galleries', and some clothes shops. Nice to hand around for an hour or so (plus an hour in the park) and have a drink. It is also a bit different from the rest of Delhi.

Why does the goverment makes it so much more expensive for foreigner, locals should pay 20rupies foreigner 250 rupies. Thats pretty unfair it's a lot of goverment stiff which makes it with purpose a lot more expensive. Make prices for everybody the same, just because we're foreigner it doesnt mean that we swim in money !!

We went to a cute little rooftop cafe close to the entry with a beautiful view over the lake I can really recommend that for sunset .

First time visitor to India it has been recommended by fellow travellers, guides and friends to visit Hauz Khas Village a historic park with reservoirs and a lot of history. A place for tourists and people of India to visit. Only wished I had more time to visit.

Hint : a little gem with unexpected surprises. Warm clothes (December), camera, selfie stick and good footwear - enjoy

The Hauz Khas Village aka HKV in South Delhi is an urban hangout hotspot as well as a heritage place . As surprising as it might sound, it is a posh neighborhood, a historical complex, and an upscale hub, all rolled into one. While Hauz Khas keeps its buoyant vibes with a wide range of modern restaurants, pubs, cafés, shopping places, and boutiques, it also retains its old-world charm through the historical complex that houses many structures from the Sultanate era. And this smooth merger of the past and the present makes it one of the top tourist attractions in Delhi. eating and drinking are Very expensive in this district, however the unique parklands with deer, heritage buildings and fantastic range of restaurants, make it a worthwhile adventure. Come for a day & stay for the evening night life !

Actually it is not village maybe in old times people call it village. It is a very popular posh area of south delhi and you will see foreigners tourists. If you are a party person go in evening and if you like peace prefer to go in day time. Here you will find lots of restaurants, cafe & shops. In most of the restaurant there is lake view.

We arrived quite late 11pm and went through a gated community area. The son of the owners met us and one of the staff promptly took our bags to our rooms. The rooms are spacious, an electric heater as it can be a little chilly first thing at this time of year. Complementary coffee, tea. A large shower which worked well. It did not have a fridge.

The rooms are very quiet. Breakfast was good and served promptly. Eggs to order. In the afternoon the first floor has a lovely terrace which you can use to enjoy the afternoon heat.

The dinner is very good. Put in a request in the morning. 600r for veg and 900r for a chicken dish. We met the chef and the food was really good and more than enough ! We can bring in your own wine , beer. There is a liqueur shop about 10 mins away. They do sell beer if you want it. A lovely dinner.

The hotel provides lots of info on nearby Restuarant, shops etc and good maps. They also provide a list of possible tourist attractions.

A quite different hotel to the 'norm'. Fabulous ethic photos taken by the dad in the lounge dining area. I loved it and felt very much at home.

As tourists from America we enjoyed the small shops and choice of many different restaurants in Hauz Khas Village. It was a bonus to be able to visit the ruins and walk along the duck pond after a great meal in the village.
