Route

Your seven-night journey begins in Delhi, before taking in the colossal red fort of Jodphur, the delicate water palaces of Udaipur and the jungle-clad hills of Ranthambore National Park, home to tigers among a full range of endangered species. Next you’ll visit the pink city of Jaipur – Rajasthan’s capital – followed by a tour of the 12th century temples of Khajuraho in neighbouring Madhya Pradesh. The holy city of Varanasi, set on the banks of the Ganges, and Agra, the site of the world-famous Taj Mahal, brings this royal journey to a fitting close.

Accommodation

It’s apt that a trip into Rajasthan – literally translating as ‘Land of Kings’ – is matched with cabins fit for a royal family. Spacious saloons are spread out across 13 opulent coaches, each one named after a famous Rajasthani palace. In all, richly patterned silk bedding and upholstery are complemented by dark wood writing tables and chairs – choose between ruby, sapphire and pearl themes. For added luxury, look to the Super Deluxe Saloons where velvet bedspreads and drapes add plush accents to ottoman sofas and hand-carved writing tables. In all, picture windows make the most of stunning desert landscapes while WiFi and plug sockets help you stay connected.

Dining

Meals are served in the Sheesh Mahal and Swarn Mahal restaurant cars where cosy fixed booths make for an intimate, lounge atmosphere. Specialist chefs prepare cuisine from around the world – there’s continental favourites and Chinese delicacies – and specialise in richly flavoured Rajasthani curries. Sheesh Mahal is constructed from varnished wood and crystal with carefully positioned floor lamps and crystal pelmets rounding off a stunning aesthetic. Then, in Swarn Mahal, gold and brass highlights make for an atmospheric dining experience.

Facilities

After dinner, make use of the fully stocked bar for a selection of excellent vintages along with premium sprits – the crystal work is a sight alone. Perhaps enjoy a glass of something cold as you challenge a fellow guest to a game of chess in the lounge. Alternatively, there are plans to bring the finest of spa services to the train with a dedicated coach complete with massage treatments and the finest personal care products. More practically, you’ll find a mailbox on board as well as a laundry service with khidmatgar attendants on hand throughout the train to help you around the clock.
