In the evening, you can indulge in signature martinis, cocktails and a grand collection of premium international spirits at the bar, Amrit Sagar.


You can continue your royal treatment by having an exclusive romantic dinner on a boat or a royal spa on the serene waters of Lake Pichola at Jiva Boat Spa. The palace carefully drafts treatments drawn on the ancient wellness heritage of India, and the fabled lifestyle and savoir Vivre of Indian royalty.
