When looking for the ultimate spa retreat, chances are you are after much more than just a top-notch massage and a long-lasting pedicure… you want a relaxing, full-body wellness adventure! Ayurveda (a practice carefully honed for thousands of years in the heart of the Himalaya) is now making way to spas worldwide, providing the ultimate in wellness through alternative medicine.
Ayurveda encapsulates the practice of building a whole-body health system by eliminating toxic elements in the body. Through focused bodywork such as yoga, meditation, and massage; the employment of plant-based medicines, herbs, and minerals; and deep cleansing and detoxifying through a specialized diet
— it is then that complete wholeness ensues and greater overall health is achieved. The general belief in Ayurveda is that true beauty in the body, mind, and soul are inextricably linked. Bringing beauty to the outer body is contingent on purification within the body which in turn, will cause a transformation of greater beauty and peace to all facets of your being.
This sounds pretty hard core
— I mean, how much transformation can a simple spa-goer endure?! While traditional practices are consistently followed, modern preferences and individual comfort levels are generally observed and customized based on your individual needs.
The benefits of Ayurveda are immediate. You can expect relaxing bodywork (such as a traditional Panchakarma massage and aromatherapy,) dietary detox with a specialized menu, meditation, and of course, body-strengthening yoga.

- Stress Relief
