Spa & Wellness

Rait - The Spa: Beauty comes from within, but is often eclipsed by the stress and toil of everyday life. The award-winning, immaculately designed spa pays homage to the Rait or 'sand' that surrounds us, and is based on the history and wisdom of the locals.

Neel - The Pool: Neel/blue, the vibrant colour of the local peacocks, is the inspiration for this indoor covered pool.
