Accurately described as a palace, this hotel is outstanding in terms of service and facilities. The hotel grounds are beautiful and massively restful after the frantic activity outside. The restaurant is absolutely outstanding. The attention by the wait staff was exemplary. Attentive, advising, but not overly intrusive. And the food quality in both Indian and international cuisines was the best I have had in any Taj hotel. And then there is the Jiva Spa. Set in a separate bungalow by the pool, it is a haven of tranquility. I received two massage treatments from the male masseur. The very best massage I've had in ages, by miles! I inclined toward luxury, there is a royal treatment in a separate suite with steam, shower, massage, and live music (behind a carved screen). Amazing. Oh and the pool is beautiful too.
