India’s ancient wellness heritage and stunning landscapes excite the senses, allowing plenty of opportunities for travellers to disconnect from everyday life and reconnect with themselves.
With so many holistic choices in India – the birthplace of yoga – clients can indulge both mind and body as part of their journey. A former maharajah's residence, The Amanbagh - which means “peaceful garden” - resides in the shadow of the Aravalli Mountains. Set in the verdant grounds of the resort’s oasis setting, its holistic spa provides a range of therapies and advanced treatments to rejuvenate and detoxify, using traditional Indian techniques.
A South Indian journey can be enhanced with a self-discovery visit to Shreyas retreat in Bangalore. Recognized as one of the finest retreats in the world, yoga is taught in traditional ashram style within a luxurious zen-inspired setting. Guest experiences are personally tailored to cater for every wellbeing whim. It's the perfect place to forget (or remember) oneself.
Shakti Kumaon, Shakti Ladakh and Shakti Sikkim were conceived to combine the rejuvenating and de-stressing influence of remote surroundings with luxury accommodation and tours. Private lodges in the little-known region of Kuamaon Himalaya avoid the influx of tourists, allowing for a fully immersive experience. The minimalist mountaintop lodge of Shakti Leti 360° will leave guests feeling on top of the world...figuratively and literally. Awe-inspiring scenery, cookery classes with a Tibetan chef, private yoga sessions, meditation and no wifi or phone signal... it's the perfect spot for those wishing to switch off from the stresses of everyday life.
