Life on board Deccan Odyssey

Travelling on board the Deccan Odyssey means enjoying the fabulous hospitality and luxurious décor that five-star Indian hotels are famous for, with the advantage of being able to travel to several different places in one trip. Round-the-clock service means you’ll never want for anything too; just ask and you will receive.

Service

The train is staffed by a fleet of around 45-60 attentive stewards to take care of your every need. Round-the-clock service is provided by valets, with one for each coach and Presidential suite. On board services are extensive and include a foreign exchange, laundry services (for a supplement), a spa and even a salon – you can get a haircut on board, should you feel the need. For your personal convenience, copies of English language daily newspapers are provided in the public areas, and there is a small library of novels, coffee table books and magazines, plus a selection of games like chess.

Dining Car

The Deccan Odyssey boasts two exquisite multi-cuisine restaurants, Waavar and Utsav. The impeccably adorned interiors of these dining establishments enhance the culinary experience, as restaurant stewards, attired in traditional Maharashtrian clothing, serve delectable dishes. The extensive menu features a diverse array of Indian, Oriental, and Continental delicacies, granting travellers the freedom to select their preferred flavours. The inviting fragrance of the various dishes warmly welcomes guests to the dining car of the Deccan Odyssey.

Bar

Once your evening meal has concluded, make your way to the train’s well-stocked bar, where you can get to know your fellow guests over expertly poured drinks and snacks. All meals, bottled water, juices and soft drinks are included, with alcoholic beverages at a supplement.

Sitting Lounge

While the regal rail expedition aboard the Deccan Odyssey guarantees an absence of boredom, the train further provides a comfortable sitting lounge where guests can unwind and engage in conversations with fellow travellers. For those seeking a quieter escape, the lounge offers a selection of books by eminent authors, allowing passengers to immerse themselves in captivating literature during their travels.

Conference Car

To cater to the specific travel needs of corporate adventurers, Deccan Odyssey India has incorporated a dedicated conference car on board. This specialised conference facility is outfitted with cutting-edge amenities and state-of-the-art audio-visual equipment essential for a thriving business venture.

Spa

Each traveller anticipates a journey filled with relaxation. The onboard health spa centre provides voyagers with an opportunity to unveil the rejuvenating facets of their personality and appearance through indulgent spa and massage therapies. Drawing inspiration from the ancient Indian science of Ayurveda, the spa incorporates rejuvenation secrets, transforming the entire sojourn into a revitalising experience for the travellers.

Food

Dining takes place in one of the two stunning restaurants, which have been designed in a regal style reminiscent of Indian royal palaces. The on-board chefs prepare all meals fresh in the kitchen car and create menus that keep up the pace with the train’s journey; you will discover local specialities of the state you are travelling through, made with seasonal ingredients. As well as traditional Indian dishes, each menu also includes an international menu to choose from, featuring favourite flavours from around the world.

The off-train excursions offered by Deccan Odyssey are an integral part of the journey, allowing guests to explore and immerse themselves in the rich cultural and historical heritage of India. Expert guides accompany guests, providing insightful commentary and ensuring a seamless and enriching experience.
