In the aftermath of Christmas and New Year celebrations, January
and February are months which are well known for New Year's
Resolutions and in particular as periods of "detoxing." This time
of year is often seen as a time for cutting back and staying at
home, however, we think that there is no better instance to enjoy a
getaway and visit one of the luxurious spa hotels that are dotted
around the globe.
It is important to remember that relaxation is a vital part of
the "detox" experience and hotels specialising in
sumptuous spa treatments and massages can frequently offer an ideal
setting to forget the stresses and strains of daily life.
The Four Seasons Resort, Mauritius at Anahita
offers both a complete spa experience and a number of secluded
beachfront villas which are perfect for rejuvenation. By contrast
there is the more intimate setting of Banyan Tree Samui, Thailand, which nestles
into the hillside and offers a range of spa treatments at its
impressive hydrotherapy facility.
For those guests wishing to immerse themselves in the ultimate
spa programme, there are the options of the hotels in our "Health
and Wellbeing" programme. As a European option the Sha Wellness Clinic on the Spanish
Mediterranean coastline is unique in providing the world's only
contemporary macrobiotic facility, designed to improve guests'
health. To enjoy a completely different programme, Ananda, India situated in the foothills of the
Himalayas is guaranteed to sooth the soul. Both Indian and Tibetan
cultures play an important part in the rejuvenating treatments on
offer which include yoga and meditation sessions.
In addition to these fabulous options, ITC offers a wealth of
properties from tranquil mountainside retreats to luxurious
beachfront villas, so there is guaranteed to be a relaxing getaway
to suit all the "detoxing" requirements.
