Been there first time, good ambience, beautiful hotel! The food was not so up to the mark, didn't feel the quality of a Taj hotel. Can be better

It 's not on a boat. It is in the Taj Vivanta hotel. They have wine. I don't know about the other alcoholic drinks available. I imagine the hotel can pick you up - otherwise, just take a taxi.
