Hyatt to open spa based on ancient Siddha medicine in Lucknow
POSTED 15 Oct 2017 . BY Tom Walker
Hyatt Hotels has revealed plans to open a spa offering treatments based on Siddha practices – a system of traditional medicine originating in ancient Tamilakam in South India.

The Siddh Spa will be located at the recently opened Hyatt Regency Lucknow, the first Hyatt-branded hotel in the capital city of the northern state of Uttar Pradesh, India.

Designed as an urban spa, it will offer a range of beauty and wellness therapies inspired by Siddha principles.

Guests can choose a wellness path based on their desired state of being – Vatham, Pitham or Kapham. The three strands form the fundamental concept of Shidda and are similar to the tridosha in other ayurvedic principles.

“The Siddha system is an ancient tradition that helps an individual attain physical, spiritual and mental wellbeing,” a spokesperson for Hyatt said. “Here, traditional medicine, yoga and meditation come together to form a holistic system that rejuvenates the soul.

“Deriving its name from this ancient practice, Siddh Spa is inspired by the oldest traditional medicine system known to mankind.

“By blending products created under the guidance of Siddha practitioners, along with personalised preparations of Thavara, extracts of roots, herbs and flowers, precious metals and mineral salts, the Siddh Spa experience sets a path to complete wellbeing.”

Facilities at the spa include four treatment rooms and separate male and female wet areas, equipped with steamroom and showers. There is also an indoor pool and 24-hour health club.

Opened on 5 September, Hyatt Regency Lucknow is located in the city’s corporate hub of Vibhuti Khand.

“The opening of Hyatt Regency Lucknow marks a significant milestone for the Hyatt Regency brand as it continues to expand its footprint throughout India,” said Kurt Straub, vice president, operations for India at Hyatt.

“The hotel is strategically located for business travelers visiting Lucknow and it's also well positioned for leisure guests who are interested in enjoying a journey through the Uttar Pradesh Heritage Arc of Lucknow, Agra and Varanasi.”
