Step inside and refresh your body and mind

Our brand new Jiva spa is the first in Europe and it is an exclusive space, designed to relax, restore and refresh. A unique fusion of Indian wellness philosophy and luxury British innovation, we bring you a dedicated space to preserve skin, body and soul.

Open to both hotel guests and locals, the new spa offers a unique concept, born out of a collaboration between the Taj award-winning spa brand Jiva and the British lifestyle brand Temple Spa. This exciting partnership is a mélange of Jiva’s traditional Indian treatments dedicated to nurturing the body, complemented by Temple Spa’s contemporary Mediterranean wellness philosophy and results-driven products.

Spa facilities include a specially appointed relaxation area, two single treatments rooms, one couples' suite, vitality pool, steam, sauna and an emotional shower.

The newly renovated fitness centre offers a range of Technogym equipment for a full body workout. The facilities include free weights area and a number of cardio machines.

Hair by Dar, led by celebrity hairstylist Dar, adds a touch of glamour by offering luxurious and personalised services.



Our treatments and therapies are inspired by the very meaning of the word Jiva (‘inner force’) which, for centuries, has been deeply rooted in India’s rich heritage of wellness. By blending ancient secret techniques and ingredients, we offer the perfect amalgamation to heal the mind, body and spirit through an exhilarating spa experience.




The Temple Spa story began almost two decades ago. A British brand with a Mediterranean soul, our luxurious results-driven skincare and spa experiences inspire to “spa wherever you are” and most importantly to live, breathe and love who you are.
