Delhi is a multi-sensory delight, from the photogenic magic of the Red Fort that dominates the Old City to the elegant, broad boulevards of the redesigned 20th-century metropolis. But even a day in its midst – auto-rickshawing through chaotic traffic, adjusting to the heat, managing the jet-lag – can really take its toll on the uninitiated visitor. So whether you’re visiting the capital for fun or business, and want to treat yourself to some pampering, we have found the best spas in town for your Delhi-ctation.
We love the indulgent spa menu at this wellness and spa space, cocooned within the lavish Udman Hotel and Resort close to the airport. It covers top-to-toe treatments, from nourishing argan oil scalp and hair treatments for hair loss, to calming lava hot-stone massages and feet-reviving pedicures. After your batteries are recharged 100 percent, perpetuate your state of serenity with a visit to the nearby Shiv Murti Complex, home to Delhi’s tallest Shiva statue, set among graceful gardens.
