WHY WE LOVE THIS HOTEL

Location: Travelers in search of beautiful, mysterious scenery will be enchanted by the landscapes of Southern India, from Bangalore to Pondicherry to Kerala, aboard the Golden Chariot.

Service: The ‘Luxury Team’ responsible for the smooth operation of the Golden Chariot are on hand from booking to disembarkation to take care of passengers’ every need.

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

DETAILED DECRIPTION

Guests aboard The Golden Chariot will have the unique chance to see Southern India at its best, with gorgeous scenery and traditional culture unfolding before their eyes. Guests can choose between two seven-night journeys, both of which include excursions, meal stops and overnight stays in exotic locations including jungle resorts, ancient temples, wildlife reserves and shopping destinations. On-board comforts within the carriages named after mighty Indian dynasties include cozy cabins decorated with a dash of historic style and fitted with all the mod-cons where guests can retire after a long day’s exploring. A choice of two restaurants will keep diners’ palates happy with menus full of delicious delights suitable for vegetarians and more meaty eaters. Active passengers can get their exercise fix in the well-equipped gym, while those who prefer to relax can peruse the treatments on offer in the spa or simply unwind with a carefully crafted cocktail in the bar car.
