The building is unsurprisingly LEED-certified, and the spa services have the safety and well-being of both staff and clients in mind.

Like its sit-down dinners, Zaika's daily lunch buffet can be complemented by classic Indian beverages, including mango lassis, and imported beers such as Kingfisher.
