Ayurvedic Adventure

<< Back to Health & Wellness, January 2014

    Experience a wellness retreat like no other at the new Jiva Grande Spa at the Vivanta by Taj in Bekal, Kerala. The resort sprawls across 26 acres along the southwest coast of India with 71 rooms and villas, many with private plunge pools or terraces that overlook the Arabian Sea and the lush tropical grounds.

    The resort’s gem is the 165,000-square–foot spa, which capitalizes on the region’s history as the birthplace of Ayurvedic medicine. Guests can choose from an incredibly creative menu that spans everything from Western-style massage and scrub treatments to traditional Indian healing rituals for immunity, weight loss, and overall well-being, as well as guided yoga and meditation sessions. The resort offers two-week and four-week–long Ayurvedic journeys for true immersion. Premium rooms range from $2,636 to $3,926 per week.
