This post is in addition to the previous post, where we shared about our experiences at a wonderful property called Vythiri Holiday Resort. If you missed it, have a look at it.
After we returned from the tiring and awesome trekking, which Ashish took us to, all we wanted was a perfect Ayurveda Spa treatment for our bodies. It was pretty nice on Ashish that he offered us a good discount at Punarjani Ayurveda Spa, which is part of the Vythiri Holiday Resort.
The moment we entered the Spa, we were warmly greeted by the staff there. They made us comfortable and got us water. They handed us their menu card which had all the list of services they offer. Most of it was self-explanatory, but the staff was proactive in explaining it to us. They helped us choose the right option depending on what we need. While I went ahead with the full-body massage, my friend went ahead with Abhangam.
Not to miss, they have separate experts for male and female. The massage rooms are also separate. The only thing I saw missing was the fact that they have one massage room for male and one for female. The waiting time would be an issue if a bigger group would like to get it done.
Coming back to my experience of the massage. I was taken to the massage room and was handed a langoti (this is a traditional underwear). I went to the washroom and changed to that tiny piece on my body. It might feel a little uncomfortable if you are getting this done for the first time, but have faith in the process.
I was asked to lie down on the traditional wooden massage table and the warm oil was poured on my back. The entire process took approx 60 minutes and I just cannot share the way my body was feeling. It was de-stressing, relaxing and amazing to the body. After the massage was done, I was asked if I would like to go for a steam bath. Of course, I said yes.
There was this traditional wooden chamber with a chair inside. I sat inside and the top of the chamber was covered with a towel. It was just my head which was out of the chamber. This was my first experience with a steam bath like that.
Overall, it was an amazing experience at Punarjani Ayurveda Spa. Ashish informed me of some week-long programmes organized by Punarjani Ayurveda for De-stressing and Yoga. I would certainly be interested to join a programme like that in the future.
