Ex­pert Hands

India Today - - COVER STORY -

The first thing that one no­tices at The Aheli is the abun­dance of nat­u­ral light pour­ing in through the glass ceil­ings, bathing the en­tire spa in ef­ful­gent sun­light. The spa in­te­ri­ors are min­i­mal­is­tic, the walls in sooth­ing shades of white and gray with a gen­er­ous use of nat­u­ral el­e­ments like wood, stone and a riot of green­ery.

Our Favourite We de­cide on the Aheli sig­na­ture spa which is a per­son­alised 90 minute rit­ual which starts with a 15 minute sauna to raise the body tem­per­a­ture in or­der to make it more re­cep­tive to the treat­ment. A sea-salt foot scrub is fol­lowed by a mas­sage (with a sooth­ing pinewood oil) which is an ex­er­cise in he­do­nism, for ex­pert hands ma­nip­u­late, tug and stretch ev­ery stiff knot out of your body till you feel as lan­guid as a Cheshire cat. At the end of this treat­ment, you will have left the stress of the work-week far be­hind, as you head back home re­ju­ve­nated and re­freshed. At Sa­malka, NH-8

Price Rs 6,500 for The Aheli rit­ual
