Clothing

Our retreats incorporate a combination of Ayurvedic, Yogic and Spa therapies. Please bring clothing appropriate for the season and the activities you intend to pursue such as light weight natural fiber yoga clothes, suitable walking/ trekking shoes and appropriate clothing for outdoor activities. As a rule the weather from November to February is cooler and woollens are recommended. February- May can be very warm and May to November is temperate with rain and adequate breathable cotton clothing will suffice with a sweater for the cool mornings and evenings. Also bring a pair of shoes that is easy to slip on and off when going to building to building.

Health Considerations

A medical questionnaire will have to be filled by you prior to all spa treatments. Please be sure to notify the Spa Consultant if you suffer from any physical ailments, or if you are pregnant. No treatment can be offered to pregnant ladies within the first 16 weeks of pregnancy and thereafter only selective treatments after consultation.

To get the most out of your day spa treatment, communicate with your technician. Your comfort and enjoyment are important to us, so let us know if you have concerns about depth of pressure, the temperature of your spa room, music volume or other issues.

In most spas, a 15% to 20% tip is typical. If you were given a gift certificate, ask if the gratuity was included. If you are staying for an extended wellness retreat tipping is welcomed and appreciated as you see fit.
