Why We Love This Train :

History: The Golden Chariot offers the height of luxury train travel through India’s stunning south aboard a vehicle hitherto reserved for royalty.

Spa

The spa on board The Golden Chariot boasts two treatment rooms and offers a range of relaxation and beauty treatments, as well as traditional Ayurvedic massages.

 

Diners can choose between two restaurants in which to enjoy delicious breakfasts, lunches and dinners on board, eating while surrounded by elegant decor inspired by the ancient cities of Hampi and Halebid, and then retire to the bar for a nightcap.



Bar

Guests can relax and unwind with a strong tipple in Madira, the train’s lounge bar named - appropriately - after the drink of the Gods in Indian mythology.

Appropriately named for the famous chef-king of legend, Nala serves international and local dishes fit for royalty to hungry guests.

From the Sanskrit word meaning ‘fine taste’, Ruchi delivers delicious cuisine from morning to evening.
