Plantation Villa are offering a very unique opportunity for you to be amidst nature and totally relax whilst you are pampered using the knowledge of century old Vedic traditions and mindfulness practices.
You will arrive to a completely natural environment with no man-made distractions. The idea is that when the physical body is not too active and there are not many distractions to stimulate the mind, it turns inwards into understanding and feeling your own emotions and cognitive behavior patterns.
Most of the modern day life is so full of distractions that you are left with little or no time to really examine your inner-self. As a result, you will become so unaware of your own emotions and the impact it is having on your physical body.
Once you arrive, the friendly team will help you settle into your room. Your room is air conditioned if you do feel the heat, and you can tap into the free Wi-Fi if you want to connect with your family. After you settle in, you will meet the Ayurvedic Doctor for a consultation. Your first day’s treatment will be light as the body needs time to settle in to the environmental changes, effects of flying and jet lag.
