Detailed Description

The time to relax and refresh is now on this 11-day journey through southern India meant to bring you into the deepest realm of wellness and retreat.

Your getaway begins in Mumbai where the energy of the city has you focusing on the diversity of the streets, where saris are as elegant as bird feathers, filled with tones and grace. The following day you will come to Elephanta Island, known for marvelous Shiva sculptures and a Maheshamurti panel showing three sides of Shiva as creator, protector, and destroyer. Venture through the iconic sights of the city as well, from the Gateway of India rising along the seaside to the Prince of Wales Museum. Once in Cochin you will find a city built on an eclectic idea, filled with cultures brought from the spice trade that have combined to bring the coastal city into an assorted and modern wonder.

On the fourth day you will arrive at the Marari Beach Resort where your Ayurvedic treatments will bring mental, physical, and emotional relief, diminishing your stress and allowing you to enjoy the world around you. Each day will be spent with your consultants making sure that all your needs are taken care of through massage, natural herbs, steam baths, and more. With each day at your whim and desire you can enjoy as much or as little of your surroundings as you prefer, from visiting the Kumarakom Bird Sanctuary to indulging in an exploration of the surrounding canals. Whether enjoying the local flavors during a private cooking course or performing yoga on the comfortable sand with the water by your side, each day will bring a deeper level of refreshment and enjoyment. Your final day will have you transferring to Mumbai where you will board your international return flight home, relaxed and ready.
