We take you on a whirlwind tour of popular getaways around town
It’s one of those places where you start planning your next trip even before you check out. The charming décor inspired by authors and books, cozy rooms, vistas of the mountains, the gurgling sounds of the water and the warm hospitality instantly lull you into a state of calm. The rooms, nooks and corners all have books by different authors on varying topics which they encourage you to read while you put your phones and ipads away. If you’re looking for a digital disconnect, it’s a great place to do that—cycle by the pond, take a walk in the hills or explore the herbal garden which has a variety of medicinal and culinary herbs. The Urban Nirvana Spa at the resort offers therapies ranging from ayurvedic abhyangam to calming aromatherapy and facials. Prasaanna Kumar, the affable general manager, eagerly offers tips on making your stay memorable. So, if you’re inspired by the changing colours of the evening sky, ask them for a canvas and paints and bring out the artist within you. The restaurant offers organic foods with most vegetables and fruits grown locally in their farm. Be it a romantic getaway or a quiet escape from the city life, Ark Wellness Retreat promises to soothe your nerves.
