The Reason: Agra is a treasure trove for tourists and history buffs. The regal Indian city is dotted with places which give information on how the Maharajas used to live. When you are done with exploring Agra’s historical delights and your feet are aching, a spa is the best solution to get refreshed for another round of travelling. Kaya Kalp - The Royal Spa at ITC Mughal gives an unparalleled experience in this regal city. The spa is spread across 99,000 square feet, where you can benefit from traditional therapies, in Mughal inspired interiors with pomegranate as the theme.
The spa has well-laid out gardens with running water channels, fountains, fragrant flowers and fruit bearing trees. The interiors are embellished with stone latticework, mother of pearl inlay and mirror work. Ruby red pomegranates are an important design element in the spa. They have been used on walls, the ceiling and on the white terrazzo flooring. The spa also has an open-air 25 metre lap pool, surrounded by relaxation areas. Specialty poolside treatments are offered here along with refreshments and snacks.
The spa offers Ayurvedic treatments for women as well as men. The luxurious spa journeys have been created with a lot of thought. The 100-minute Royal Mughal Hamam includes use of the Private Hamam where you will be deeply cleansed with a Persian inspired body scrub having natural ingredients, leaving you with soft and clean skin. This is followed by the Mughal Style ‘Kese’ Body Scrub where, as you lie on the heated platform, your therapist will carry out a deep body scrub using a loofah. Then you are treated with the Argan Oil, Mung Bean Soap massage. In this treatment, a rich foamy mixture, made of the said ingredients, is slathered over your body from head to toe, and rinsed clean, leaving the skin silky soft to touch. Release all tension from you head and neck with a relaxing head massage as they shampoo and condition your hair in hamam style. After the ritual is complete, rest or socialise with your partner or friends while you enjoy some authentic Indian Mughal tea blends.
Some other not to miss rituals include Exotic Pomegranate Journey, A Passage to India, and A Taj Mahal Romance.
