The Spa

Enjoy a pampering experience in the therapy suites, overlooking the Taj Mahal, at The Oberoi Spa by Banyan Tree. This exclusive Spa provides treatments that are based on Ayurveda, aromatherapy and various western techniques.

Next the body is enveloped in a nourishing Honey Citrus Wrap. The therapist then eases away knots and tension with a deep-tissue Balinese massage. This is followed by a soak in the goodness of an old-fashioned Milk Bath. There are seven therapy suites.
