Seeking inspiration from the wonders of nature, Conrad Spa in Bengaluru takes you on a journey down the path of self-love and wellbeing. By Parineeta Sethi

After travelling through an urban cityscape, I arrive at Conrad Bengaluru. As I
walk past the elegant exteriors into the reception, the luxuriously crafted ambience immerses me in a soulful feeling. The contemporary setting of my room is accentuated by prime facilities. From the picture window in the room, I gaze at the panoramic view of Bengaluru city and Ulsoor Lake. Getting a much-needed sojourn from my busy work life, I immediately want to explore the surrounding areas, indulge in good food and relax at the eponymous Conrad Spa.

Conrad Bengaluru is located in a busy neighbourhood in the Silicon Valley of India. It has easy access to the business, technology, art and entertainment districts that kept me engaged. The hotel also offered 1-, 3- and 5-hour itineraries to explore the city. I could choose from a wellness experience or go shopping in colourful markets, or visit the temple, or go back in time at a local museum.

For lunch, my tastebuds are in for a treat at Mikusu, one of the dining options offered by Conrad Bengaluru. I eat a delicious asparagus tempura roll, and a truffle edamame dumpling. Blending the culinary traditions of Thailand, Japan and China, Mikusu stirs up a flavourful palette. In the evening, I head to Tiamo and dine under the open sky, devouring exotic Mediterranean dishes.

As I sit in the spa the next day, I flip through the spa menu and discover the rejuvenating therapies on offer there. For matters of the heart, Conrad Spa has the ‘Air – All You Need Is Love’ treatment that includes an anahata massage with essential oils. I notice that the spa specialises in therapies with adaptogenic ingredients, paving a natural setting for better health. It offers treatments such as ‘Devita’, which includes a lymphatic massage, followed by marma therapy and a herbal pack.

Inspired by the five elements of nature, the signature treatment offered at Conrad Spa balances my energies and invokes deep relaxation. The evocative sound of Tibetan singing bowls surrounds me in ‘Earth- Reassurance’. As I relax on a heated bed during the spa treatment, I feel all the fatigue melt away. After a relaxing foot wash, a ground frankincense smoke ritual follows, which calms my senses. My skin is rejuvenated with a scrub and a massage using vetiver, patchouli and jatamansi oils.

Conrad Spa transported me to a state of content wellbeing. As I stepped away from the stress of everyday routine, I found myself in the warm embrace of wellness at Conrad Bengaluru.
