If you have been looking for a nearest luxury wellness escape from Delhi’s hustle bustle and its pollution, Moksha Himalaya spa resort is an ideal place for you. Situated just 4 hours away by road from Delhi, in Parwanoo (near Chandigarh), Moksha makes it a very convenient get way.
As you reach Parwanoo, the resorts cable car receives you at the base, and transports you to a world that gives you a sense of belongingness while detaching you from the outside world. This quaint establishment, Moksha, which is almost at an elevation of 5000 feet above sea level is amidst the stunning Shivalik ranges that inspires oneness with the nature.
You feel a noticeable dip in the temperature and a sudden change in the ambience as you soak in the beauty of the place. The air up there is nippy, smells of crackling autumn leaves and of chilly wind blowing down the Himalayas.
The property has been designed to give wellness as its focal point. Spread across almost a 70,000 square feet state-of-the-art spa, Moksha is one of the most thoughtfully planned wellness centers in India where each treatment room overlooks the valley and offers one-of-its-kind wellness experience.
Though the retreat is grounded in Ayurveda, and offer therapies based on age old practices, you can also opt for their western contemporary spa therapies which are equally good. A must try experience is their Turkish Hammam. An ancient wellness therapy, with coordinated four hand massage followed by sauna and steam.
Moksha also crafts personalised therapies and activity programmes, to cater to individual needs and health goals, if required.
The beautifully laid-out resort houses 62 rooms, each with an open sit-out offering breathtaking views of the valley, a rare thing to find in a mountain property.
The suites are expansive, almost 900 sq feet, highlighted with wooden detailing on the roof and walls and equipped with all the modern facilities, including a bathtub and shower that face out into the Shivalik range.
If you are planning to travel with family or a group of friends, go for their presidential suite or royal suite that offers personal butler and jaw dropping sunset views.
You could unwind at all-weather infinity pool and open air jacuzzi as you witness the sun set beyond the horizon. The evenings can be spent by the bonfire on the terrace, listening to good music while enjoying your cocktails.
The nature lovers could opt for treks of differing intensities, walking along age-old village pathways winding artistically through the lush forests, breathing in the fresh crisp air infused with the aromas of the Pine, Oak, Champa and Rudraksha trees.
Food is one of the reasons why the guests keep coming back to the resort. The resort has a fine dining multi- cuisine restaurant that offers progressive Indian, Chinese, Italian and other International cuisines. While everything tastes good here, one must try their traditional Himachali thali that includes local dishes of the region, giving you that local flavour. The chefs, Gautam Kumar and Pritam take into account guests personal preferences and go out of their way to make their food palette satisfied.
So whether you want a vacation just for relaxing amidst nature or you want to experience a well-appointed wellness retreat, Moksha has got you covered. It’s a super relaxing and super-luxurious escape from a modern-day life
