Just 3 Hours Away From Mumbai Is A Spa Retreat Which Bollywood Is In Love With


Tripoto.com

Travellers in Mumbai often complain about how far they are from the mountains. It is in the face of this misfortune that a Mumbai-based couple decided to take matters in their own hand.

Nikhil Kapur, a triathlete who also trains other athletes for the Iron Man Race and Sharmilee Aggarwal Kapur, a pranic healer and creative strategist, collated their geniuses to create Atmantan. Atmantan is a wellness destination tucked away in the Sahyadri mountains situated at a three to four hour drive from south Mumbai. The massive property, which overlooks the Mulshi Lake, offers its guests a chance at complete transformation; not just spiritually, but also physically.

The name Atmantan combines three words and aspects of life: atma (soul), mana (mind) and tann (body). The team at Atmantan, which includes a diverse mix of specialists such as Ayurveda doctors, fitness trainers, pranic healers, yoga teachers, massage therapists and even accupressurists, ensures that every bit of your spirit is pampered here. Spread across 40acres, Atmantan overlooks the Mulshi Lake and 28 waterfalls in the nearby area, and also exudes a positive vibe which the Kapurs believe is sourced from the mineral rich land.

Ideal for

Affluent couples who are ready to shell out large sums of money for a spiritual and physical regeneration.

How to reach

The Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport of Mumbai is just three and a half hours away from the resort. If you are driving down from Pune or Mumbai yourself, start at the highway (SH8) from Chandni Chowk. From here reach Mulshi via the industrial township of Pirangut. If you want, the resort will also happily arrange for an airport shuttle or a taxi to pick you up from either Mumbai or Pune (charges extra).

Accommodation

The Atmantan Wellness Resort offers three types of accommodation options with varied prices.

Asoka and Arjuna Garden Groves are the entry level en suite rooms provided by the resort. The floor-to-ceiling windows and the glass-walled bathtub keeps you from feeling like you have settled for the simplest option.

Acacia Lake Grove is the lake-facing room, which gets plenty of natural light and also offers a lovely view of the mountains in the horizon. The room also comes with blackout curtains that let you block all the light, ensuring you sleep like a child no matter the time of the day.

Mango Tree Villa is where all the celebrities and big-shots are headed. The private villa is equipped with an infinity pool, gymnasium, couple spa, sauna and steam facilities, a pantry full of organic snacks and food items, and even an open-to-sky outdoor shower at the other end of the villa.
