One thing about India that is unmistakable is that it will not leave you indifferent. Just like Neemrana Fort-Palace resort! This is a reconverted 15th century fortress (originally built in 1464), spanning 25 acres with palaces tiered over twelve levels. The hotel is surrounded by the magnificent Aravalli mountain range, has 6 acres of gardens, the first and the longest zip line in India (hanging several hundred metres above the hotel complex), two swimming pools and a great Ayurvedic spa.
The rooms at Neemrana range from dungeons to suites fit for royalty – the Uma villa has the best views of the mountain range, the Hara Mahal suite (named after goddess Shiva) is decorated with the beautiful early 20th century oleographs, the Francisi Mahal suite is furbished in the colonial south Indian style and adorned with the Joan of Arc tapestry, while the Sheela Mahal has an impressive staircase, a bathroom with the view over the pool and medieval-looking octagonal turret seats.
The hotel’s Sansha Spa, spanning 3,875 square feet, has five treatment rooms, three steam rooms and an array of relaxing body pampering treatments. Sansha is known for its Ayurvedic therapies focusing on detoxing and distressing. There is the calming Shirodhara treatment, the synchronized massage called the Abyanga, and the chakra dhara during which fragrant oils are poured over your chakras to elicit a state of bliss. Of course, since you are in India, you should try outdoor sunlight-spectrum yoga and meditation to complete your healing and relaxing experience.
The Neemrana Fort-Palace Hotel will do its utmost to ensure that you have once-in-a-lifetime holistic experience while enjoying accommodation that is fit for royalty and bedecked with the modern-day comforts.
