From Provence to Gulmarg - the L’Occitane facial at the Khyber Himalayan Resort and Spa is one of a kind. The changing seasons of Gulmarg are celebrated with signature treatments as guests are encouraged to choose from a variety of homegrown seasonal flora that are mixed with L’Occitane products. Fresh Himalayan water is then used to create a concoction that is made just for you. Not only this, but the location of the resort is an added bonus. Situated in the Pir Panjal range, the place offers panoramic views of the lofty Himalayas, green valleys, and meadows.

The Kunye form of massage therapy is one of the oldest in traditional Tibetan medicine. It has been transcribed and formally taught for many centuries as an effective and dynamic healing art. The three basic stages of the massage are— applying oil, massaging in, and wiping off. Ananda In The Himalayas is the perfect place to relax and get the traditional Tibetan experience. Surrounded by dense sal forests, overlooking the holy city of Rishikesh on the Ganges, this spa and wellness destination focuses on healing as part of the Kunye massage. Lymphatic drainage, acupressure, and meridian work with hot Himalayan salts infused with lavender, cardamom, and jatamansi, are done to rejuvenate the body and restore the nervous system.

Fire and Ice Facial
This clinical treatment bridges the gap between a mild facial and an invasive peel. Active ingredients in a botanical base are used to suit all skin types and increase cellular metabolism. Moreover, it targets sun spots, dull complexion, blackheads, acne, and wrinkles. Commonly known as the red carpet facial, this is the go-to treatment for celebrities like Beyonce, Gwyneth Paltrow, Jessica Alba, and many others. You do not need to take a 12-hour flight to the United States to get this luxurious facial. It is available at the ISAAC Luxe Dermatologist Clinic in Delhi.

There is no place like Kerala to experience the age-old Indian medical system known as Ayurveda. Dating back almost 5,000 years, it is believed that this system is not just about physical health, but also emotional and spiritual wellbeing. Whilst there are numerous treatments one can get, some of the highest recommended ones are ‘Panchakarma’ (using five natural methods to balance the three doshas), ‘Shirodhara’ (continuously pouring oil over the forehead to relieve anxiety), and ‘Abhyanga’ (body massage using herb-infused oil). With a variety of wellness packages, Somnatheeram in Kovalam is the perfect place for you to experience Ayurveda. Established in 1985, it is noted for being the world’s first Ayurvedic resort.
