The French Connection of a Desi Boutique Hotel (Featuring Scarlette)

If you haven't heard of the boutique homestay "Scarlette", located in Safdarjung Enclave, (New Delhi), well then it's time you take a tour of this charming place. 
A creative mix of all white walls, fresh white linen, a well curated collection of Indian vintage frames, furniture acquired from Rajasthan and a cozy fire place woven into the design and decor of this Kothi-esque place, gives it the Indo-French vibe! The B&B is run by Pauline Bijvoet, a business school graduate from France who came to India and fell head over heels in with what the country had to offer. Now juggling between working as a production agent for fashion brands and running Scarlette, she is here to stay.  

Scarlette has four rooms that you can choose from, each sporting a distinct personality. They have also widened their service net by acquiring two additional service apartments. Their cafe serves coffee, baked goodies and an indulgent breakfast to start the day off on the right note. Though the place targets budget travelers from France and other European destinations, the intimate yet casual ambiance makes it an ideal weekend getaway for local Delhiites. Their coffee shop with a relaxed vibe, is the perfect place to unwind with a favorite book. If you would rather enjoy lounging outdoors, their terrace seating area has some beautiful fuchsia bougainvilleas creating an exotic look with its overgrown branches.
