Mumbai: Dr. B K Modi, Founder-Chairman, Smart Group, recently announced the opening of a 29-room 5-star Modi Yoga Retreat overlooking the Ganges in Rishikesh, Uttarakhand. The retreat features a 12,000 sq. ft. spa that includes 12 treatment rooms. Developed in association with WTS — the US-based Global Spa leader, it has 29 luxury rooms that provide a panoramic view of the Ganges and the Himalayas.
Projecting a delicate balance between Indian sensibilities and modern wellness center, the retreat, in collaboration with WTS international, offers international and Ayurvedic treatments.
The retreat also features a heated swimming pool for hydra therapies, a restaurant, a wellness café, a pool bar and a 1300 sq. ft. conference room for events. The eateries offer an eclectic array of contemporary cuisine from around the world in addition to Indian regional and Ayurvedic food. Keeping up with the latest health trends, the café serves a wide variety of healthy, organic, gluten-free and vegan options including meals especially recommended for specific treatments.
Dr. Modi said, “In today’s day and age, well-being has a renewed significance. New technologies have changed the concept of aging. Living happy, healthy and beyond 100 is now possible. To achieve the concept of ‘beyond 100’ one must be stress-free and have access to the right air, nutrition and wellness practices. This was the thought behind the launch of the Modi Yoga Retreat.”
The Spa at Modi Yoga Retreat has been conceptualised in collaboration with WTS international which manages spas in iconic hotels like The Trump Chicago, The Trump Las Vegas, The Wyndham Grand Orlando and MGM National Harbor Hotel in Washington DC. The spa rooms include two rooms equipped with Vichy showers, two Ayurveda treatment rooms, six international therapy rooms and two consultation rooms.
