The Kaya Kalp Spa by ITC Hotels showcases the country's ancient wellness sciences through indigenous spa therapies to promote overall wellbeing
The concept of luxury in hotels is being redefined to include aspects that dwell on Nature, space, discreet service and wellness. The luxury consumer, particularly the business traveller, also seeks a quiet ambience, away from the digital world of ubiquitous connectivity. Health and wellness have been incorporated in luxury hotels to cover every aspect of the guest experience. Promoting wellness as a lifestyle is becoming a fundamental mission for the Hospitality Industry and therefore spas are being perceived as an essential commodity in luxury hotels. ITC Hotels, India’s premier chain of luxury hotels, which is synonymous with Indian hospitality, understands the needs of today’s experiential traveller. The brand has pioneered the concept of ‘Responsible Luxury,’ drawing on the strengths of ITC Group’s exemplary sustainability practices. Using Ayurveda as a wellness regime, ITC Hotels has introduced the Kaya Kalp Spa at all the ITC Luxury Collection Hotels. Derived from Ayurveda, Kaya Kalpa is an ancient system of bodily rejuvenation that is said to reverse the natural ageing process. ‘Kaya’ translates from Sanskrit to mean ‘body’ and ‘Kalpa’ means ‘transformation.’ As a process that is believed to transform the entire body, Kaya Kalpa is said to help open the mind and spirit in order to experience and connect with the Divine and cultivate inner peace. Kaya Kalp Spas are class apart for those who seek to combine luxury with an exclusive and enriching experience that uplifts the mind, body and soul. Showcasing indigenous and well-known therapies from across the world, they deliver a memorable spa experience. Kaya Kalp Spas are housed in all 14 luxury hotels by ITC, the most recent one being at ITC Royal Bengal in Kolkata.

PASSAGE TO INDIA Relax, Rebalance, Rejuvenate, and Re-energise as Kaya Kalp takes you on a journey via ‘Passage to India’. Drift away on a quest for solitude, where indigenous herbs and spices are lavishly applied to your body by highly skilled Ayurvedic therapists. A guided meditation technique allows the mind to de-stress and connect with the inner self. The traditional Abhyanga Massage is a delightful way to relax the body and allow the mind to drift. Performed by two therapists using the long stroke technique, it uses a traditional blend of oils to awaken the inner wisdom. The Shirodhara Therapy involves the flow of warm medicated oil being poured continuously on the forehead, which helps to connect and rejuvenate the energy systems within the body. The treatment also helps to improve blood supply and promotes unblocking of nerve impulses to help relieve mental tension. It comes as no surprise that recognising its unique, indigenous roots and philosophies that blend with contemporary international best practices, Kaya Kalp has been acknowledged by Tatler and Conde Nast Traveller as the ‘Best City Spa in the World’.
