The Royal Orient
 
 
Welcome to the rare delight, a special experience. Rare because in our fast - paced lives, it is not often that we can take time off to unwind and taste the pleasure of Raaj culture. Special, because your journey will take you and your family back in time : to the age of Maharajas. To carry you there is the world's most exotic trains. Weave through two of India's most culturally fascinating states, Gujarat and Rajasthan. Cross the great Indian desert at nights and take day trips to fascinating places by luxury coach.

Feel the spirituality of an ancient Jain temple-city, soak your feet in the warm water of the Arabian Sea and laze on the beach, Safari in jungles to see the only lions outside Africa, and shop for exquisite handicrafts as old as history in shops blaring Michael Jackson music.

Multicuisine restaurant with the "Watering Hole" Bar, with all your favourite drinks and some new ones too!, running hot and cold water, spacious baths, clean and comfortable cabins, furnished better than may 5-star hotels, a Library if you're looking for a truly quite, laid-back time.
