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.
