When it’s time to indulge your taste buds, you can walk through the hotel’s rustic corridors to the multi-cuisine restaurant set in the Grand Dining hall, which has catered to kings, queens and celebrities alike.

Apart from the restaurant, there is also the elegant Writer’s Bar, which dressed in its unique, dark wooden frames, is one of its kind in the country. The bar named so, pays tribute to writing legends such as Rudyard Kipling and Ruskin Bond.
