Oberoi opening luxury property in Punjab, North India

by Jane Kitchen | 24 Nov 2016

Luxury hotel group Oberoi is opening a spa resort in Chandigarh, India, next month, set in the protected Siswan Forest Range, a relatively unknown area of natural beauty.

The Siswan Forest Range has just been anointed UNESCO World Heritage status for its Corbusier-designed Capitol Complex.

The Oberoi Sukhvilas includes a 12,000sq ft (1,115sq m) Oberoi Spa will open in early 2017 at the edge of the forest, offering Eastern and international wellness and beauty programmes.

The spa is described as tranquil and light-filled, and with large windows looking out on verdant views, while interiors feature fire, glass and water features.

Extensive hydrotherapy features include a crystal steam sauna, infrared sauna, lifestyle showers with ocean mist, a vitality pool, a Turkish hammam and a Roman tepidarium.

The spa will offer Oberoi’s signature Western, Eastern massage and ayurvedic therapy, as well as relaxation sessions in a private wellness garden.

Additionally, private consultation with an ayurvedic doctor who can advise personalise weekly, fortnightly and monthly programmes for stress management, weight management and holistic wellness are available. These programmes include ayurvedic treatments, yoga and mindfulness activities.

A swimming pool overlooking the forest and a 24-hour fitness centre are also available, and guests can cycle through forest trails for outdoor wellness. The opening of the Oberoi Sukhvilas will also revive a historic trail from the Punjab to the Himalayas.

Located 30 minutes outside India’s first planned city of Chandigarh, designed by French architect Le Corbusier, the Oberoi Sukhvilas is surrounded by 8,000 acres of protected natural forest and features traditional Indian architecture, landscaped gardens and water features.

The resort includes premier rooms, luxury tents with private swimming pools, and luxury villas. The accommodations feature traditional design elements inspired by Rajput and Mughal palace architecture including intricately carved furniture, thekri mirror work, handpainted frescoes and jharokha windows.
