Spa holidays are a welcome option in summer, especially across the Indian plains, when travelling becomes difficult with the rising temperatures in the open. This is the time to go for hotels that offer yoga and spa and ayurvedic wellness treatments.
Spend time indoors practising on your yoga or undergoing rejuvenating therapies. Purge your body of the excesses and urban pollution and cleanse the mind of dark and negative thoughts.
