Kaya Kalp the Royal Spa opened in March 2008 at the ITC Mughal hotel. Measuring 99,000 opulent square feet, it’s one of the largest spas in Asia. Unsurprisingly, the spa quickly won a string of awards. True to its royal name, the design incorporates elements of Mughal landscaping and architecture. The lavish interiors are decorated with stone latticework, mother-of-pearl inlays, marble floors, and ornate mirror-work. The spa also has the first luxury hamam (Turkish sauna) in India.
