Expansive Jiva Spa with views of the Himalayas features at new Taj Resort
POSTED 08 Feb 2019 . BY Jane Kitchen
The Indian Hotels Company Limited (IHCL), is introducing the iconic Taj brand in Himachal Pradesh with the opening of Taj Theog Resort & Spa, Shimla.

Nestled amid thick cedar forests and spread over five acres, the hotel offers views of the Himalayas and an expansive Jiva Spa.

Rooted in India’s rich heritage of wellness, the spa includes a temperature-controlled pool with a sun deck and 180-degree views of the Churdhar, the highest peak of the outer Himalayas.

Specially curated local experiences feature treatments derived from ancient Indian wisdom, culture and royalty.

Signature treatments include Ukuchina, a native age-old healing practice from Zambia to restore vitality and stress. The treatment begins with a hot compress soaked in eucalyptus oil to ease breathing, followed by a relaxing deep-tissue massage.

Jivaniya is an energising treatment to relieve muscular tension and improve blood circulation. This treatment includes an exfoliating herbal scrub of exotic spices and herbs from the hills of India, a heat-stimulating wrap, followed by a revitalising massage.

Taj Theog Resort & Spa’s design and architecture echoes colonial charm reminiscent of hill station appeal. Surrounded by the Deodar forest, with pathways through apple orchards and terraced gardens, the resort includes 99 bedrooms. Warm wooden furniture, traditional rugs and tall French windows offer spacious balconies overlooking snow peaks and quaint villages.

“We are delighted to open our first hotel in Himachal Pradesh, often referred to as the Land of Gods,” said Puneet Chhatwal, managing director and CEO of IHCL. “This will be the Company’s first mountain resort. With this new addition, we have expanded our resort portfolio, which is the largest in India. The State has great tourism potential and we look forward to expanding our footprint to showcase the pristine beauty of this region.”
