Monsoon Treat at Atmantan Wellness Resort
The monsoon is probably the most romanticised season of them all. Cinema, art and literature have all glorified it as the season of love. But for city dwellers, it means traffic, water logging, and more traffic! It’s when we’re home that we’re actually able to let down our hair and enjoy the rain. But the monsoon doesn’t have to mean staying in. Take a break from your caged city life and visit Atmantan Wellness Resort to make the most of the therapeutic rains.
Nestled in the lap of the Sahyadris and overlooking breathtaking Mulshi Lake in Pune, Atmantan is spread over 40 acres, making it one of the largest destination spas in Asia. The resort’s name is an amalgamation of atma (soul), mana (mind) and tann (body), so it comes as no surprise that it provides one-of-a-kind transformative experiences that will surely turn back time.
Monsoons at Atmantan mean rain-washed surrounds, petrichor and Ayurveda. Dr. Manoj Kutteri, Wellness Director, Atmantan, says, “According to Ayurveda, human strength is relatively high during the monsoons and this weather helps the body respond best to our detoxifying and anti-ageing body treatments.” The ‘Ayurveda Panchakarma Retreat’, for instance, involves consultations with a highly skilled Ayurvedic doctor who diagnoses your dosha and personalises a treatment schedule for you.
You can also choose from a range of treatments such as acupuncture, aromatherapy, anti-ageing facials, body polishes and cocooning wraps at the expansive spa. Plus, there other programmes such as ‘Master Cleanse’, ‘Weight Balance’, ‘Fitness Challenge’ and ‘Holistic Health’ to help you become a version of yourself.
All the programmes at Atmantan are complemented by flavour-filled food. The specially curated ‘farm to table’ menu here uses fresh ingredients sourced from local farms – the food not only satiates your taste buds, but also fulfils your nutritional needs. Chef Ishika Konar, Executive Chef, Atmantan, says, “The moment we talk about wellness, my responsibility as a chef doubles. The onus is on me and the team to create the right offering in terms of food for all the guests. Creating the menu, keeping in mind all health aspects, taking care of our very own cuisine philosophy, incorporating local and seasonal ingredients… This makes things more challenging yet truly interesting. And usually, it all comes down to the ingredients we use. Seasonal vegetables grown without pesticides are tastier as they ripen naturally. Here, in Atmantan, we choose vegetables from our own organic farm – all the ingredients are absolutely fresh.”
