With wanderlust capturing the world once more, Aman welcomes guests to discover new pathways to escapism at Amanbagh and Aman-i-Khás. Resting in rural Rajasthan, both properties invite guests to retreat to their restorative surroundings, with several new and unique experiences providing opportunities to unearth the region’s exceptional natural beauty, rich culture and incredible wildlife.
A secluded sanctuary in the Aravalli Hills, Amanbagh’s towering palms and eucalyptus trees are set to welcome guests into a hidden oasis. Meaning ‘peaceful garden’ in Sanskrit, the resort’s surroundings are among the most remote and luscious in the region. Pavilions with private pools add to the feeling of solitude where space and stillness create a tranquil haven.
New this year, Amanbagh welcomes a first-of-its-kind Ayurshala Centre. A place to gain a unique insight into Ayurveda Apothecary, one of the oldest scientific medical systems in the world, the new stand-alone centre hosts guests staying four nights or more for a Ayurshala Traditional Medicine Immune Support Retreat, which takes guests on an educative and transformative journey through Ayurveda.
Available year round, the retreat begins with a consultation by the resort’s in-house Ayurveda physician where guests are informed about their body type as per the Ayurvedic Doshas before taking part in a tour of the resort’s Ayurvedic garden, where they are shown over 200 medicinal plants that are used in traditional recipes.
The perfect place for relaxation and cultural discovery
This is followed by a visit the Ayurshala Centre, where the team prepares tailored formulations using ingredients harvested from the garden. Combined with a programme of private daily movement sessions, group yoga classes and meditations, alongside three healthy meals a day, the Ayurshala Retreat offers a unique insight into personalised Ayurvedic medicine, which can be taken home and integrated as part of a daily wellness routine.
Also new in 2022, the three-night Shanti Experience which allows guests to enjoy even more space and seclusion with a complimentary room upgrade, as well as a half-day excursion to Bhangarh Fort or a traditional Champi head massage. Carefully curated for those seeking escapism, this retreat is the ultimate way to explore Rajasthan – the perfect place for relaxation and cultural discovery. As guided sunrise walks rekindle the soul, and with daily breakfast and yoga sessions included, this retreat provides the tools to enrich body and spirit.
The three-night Shanti Experience which allows guests to enjoy even more space and seclusion
In October this year, Amanbagh will offer a seven-night Advanced Yoga Retreat (14-21 October) for intermediate and advanced yoga practitioners inspired and in honour of Kārtika, one of the holiest months in the Hindu calendar and celebrated as the month of awakening the soul with meditation. During this period, it is believed that slow, smooth and steadily paced yoga postures can lower the Vata Predominance in the body.
In line with these local celebrations, guests can explore and enhance mind and body with this retreat, where the divine presence of temples and nature’s welcoming embrace offers a journey to ultimate serenity.
