Kaya Kalp - The spa,
A long sip of refreshing coconut water, some Pomelo salad and feeding the Koi carps in the side pools and already our spirits felt like chirping. A half hour walk and just when the toes wanted to stretch, a saucer full of tepid water, mixed with mineral salt and gondhoraj leaves and slices of fresh lime, a foot ritual, to squeeze off every ounce of tiredness. This is followed by body exfoliation—a soothing massage with long
strokes of nimble fingers with paste of aromatic gobindobhog rice powder, cinnamon-clove-nutmeg and sandalwood dust with sprinklings of turmeric. For that embalming sense of freshness, the peel of gondhoraj skin is softly scattered all over the body. Three hours of detoxification and de-stressing followed by Kaya Kalp signature therapy in solitude interrupted only with the natural call of birds, rustle of leaves and whiff of gondhoraj.
