Alila Bangalore, the 101-room business lifestyle hotel that opened this summer in India’s ‘garden city’, has now unveiled its brand new spa. The latest Spa Alila opening is perfect for business travellers to relax and unwind in after a day’s work, acting as a retreat from the hustle and bustle of the city.
The Spa Alila Bangalore is an exercise in understated luxury. Elegant black granite sourced from local artisans, dark wood, kota and brass detailing transform the space into an ancient south Indian temple. Brass oil lamps cast a soft glow, creating a relaxing environment.
The Spa has one double and four single treatment rooms all equipped with steam rooms. Guests may choose from a wide range of traditional Asian and European massage techniques that are tailored to their wellness needs for individuals and couples.
Signature treatments include a Balinese Crème Bath, a mind-melting, intensely hydrating crème hair bath with essential oils of rosemary, lavender and grapefruit combined with a deliciously nourishing base of coconut and cocoa butter.
The 150-minute ‘Beauty and Balance’ package, uses the caffeine sourced from locally grown coffee grounds to draw out impurities. This rich cocoa, coffee and coconut treatment includes: a signature foot bath: 60-minute therapeutic massage, a coffee and coconut body scrub, a cocoa and coffee body mask as well as a rain shower on a Terrazo hot bed with a herbal steam bath.
Alila Bangalore also hosts yoga by its infinity pool on the fifth floor. This incredible space looks directly out onto the city’s skyline. Yoga sessions are conducted most mornings by the hotel’s yoga guru, who can tailor the programme to suit individual body types
