          Just like any five star property a normal spa treatment would cost you 4-5k with a 60min session, however you can reach the hotel number to get the final cost of various treatments.

          how much is a swedish style massage at the spa? Is it only males or females in spa or both. Can never be sure of anything in India!

          The treatments are for both sexes; underwear should normally be worn.
