A new and ancient beauty

Luxury expansion has heated up in India over the past decade with global hotel brands going all in on increasing their presence in the land of the Indus River, spices, spirituality, food, romance, diversity and festivals. Nestled near the foothills of the Himalayas in New Chandigarh, lies the latest resort among 8,000 acres of protected forest just outside of the city centre.

The Oberoi Sukhvilas Resort & Spa, Siswan Forest Range, New Chandigarh features the Kohinoor Villa, evoking traditional haveli mansions complete with a central courtyard and private garden. Scheduled to open in Spring of this year, the spa’s glass water and fire features will appease the nature of duality, calling you to calm preparation for healing and nurturing from among a selection of Ayurveda and Oberoi signature massage therapies, Turkish hammam scrub, or Roman tepidarium to name a few. After experiencing the Pinjore Garden’s Shish Mahal, dine to traditional music at the al fresco Anant Mahal restaurant.
