Presidential Suite – Cabin area 448 sqft, Total Cabins- 1, Passenger Capacity: 4
How does the Navratna (Presidential) Suite of Maharajas’ Express makes a passenger feel larger than life? One of the best things to happen to the Indian tourism sector is the arrival of Maharaja Express at the scene.
Launched in 2010, Maharajas’ Express rail journey transport its passengers back to the era of elegant and opulent living. Often compared to the Venice Simplon Orient Express for its lavishness, this Indian luxury train offers 3 pan-India journey and 2 golden triangle trips uncovering some of the most fascinating destinations across India.
It would not be an overstatement to call the Navratna (Presidential) Suite of Maharajas’ Express its USP. Till now, no luxury train, either in India or west, has come up with such facility, even if it is running for so many years.
Maharajas’ Express presidential suite measures up to an area of 448 square feet and occupies the entire guest carriage. One of its kind in the world, it consists of two bedrooms (one with twin-beds and one with a double bed), two attached bathrooms and a living cum dining room with a dedicated butler.
Each of the two bedrooms is equipped with state of the art amenities such as LCD’s with satellite connection, individual climate control, direct dial telephone, channel music and mood lighting.
The living cum dining room boasts of a sofa, writing table, mini bar and WI-FI internet. The attached modern bathroom features a wash basin, cubical shower, WC and a bathtub with running hot & cold water facility.
I won’t say that the above mentioned description of the Maharajas’ Express presidential suite surpasses the lavishness of similar accommodation alternative in the high end five star hotels but can certainly give run for the money to its Indian and western counterparts.
