With quality services and staff, the location of a spa also plays an important role in setting up the whole process of achieving wellness and mental peace.
The beauty of nature is such that one cannot explain it in the exact words. The serene environment and the breathtaking views sum up to be perfect to ensure peace of mind. Many brands have taken up to set themselves up in beautiful valleys and areas which are full of greenery and views. This not only is like gaining’ brownie points’ for the brands but work in sync with the sole aim of providing the best of services and environment. In a conversation with The Elevation Studio Spa at The Tamara Coorg for our Indian Salon and Wellness Yearbook 2017, the brand tells us about the vision they harbour, the experiences on offer and a lot more.
