What can you tell us about the history of spa culture in the area? Did Rajasthani royals have any specific liking for spa treatments?
The origins of spa therapies go back to prehistoric times with the belief in their curative powers. And, when we talk of Rajasthani royals, yes, of course, there was always a liking for spa treatments. But, even then there was a cross pollination of culture, tradition, therapies and healing massages that the royalties of Rajasthan had access to. So, the spa, at our property, has deep roots, having grown from some of the most long-standing health practices of the bygone era.
