Staying true to the definition of spa, which is short for “Sanus Per Aquam” (meaning healing through water in Latin), the resort encourages guests to spend their time in the hot spring throughout the stay and prior to their spa treatments. There is also a range of private wellness sessions that guests can book, such as spanning breath work, tai chi, meditation and vedic mantra. More into the in-nature healing treatment? You can take a leisure stroll through the resort’s farm which is flooded with beautiful, vibrant produce.
