VanaVasa

BRAHMOOR, KARNATAKA

VanaVasa is a Sanskrit word that translates to forest stay, which speaks volumes about this beautiful place, so perfect for an easy and light stay away from the monotony of the cities. This hotel gives you the chance to unplug and rediscover the simple eternal pleasures of life. Lost in the serendipity of a deep forest, you get to indulge in a process that ‘re-wilds’ the soul, which makes you shed the layers of daily routines to re-establish a connection with your bare self. Situated in the hamlet of Brahmoor, VanaVasa is a place to reflect and recalibrate, rejuvenate and relax amidst nature, in the middle of a place which we belong to.
Spread across 10 acres of the virginal Western Ghats that rise from the western coast of India, VanaVasa is surrounded by tiny farms and homesteads. A series of three thatched cottages house the luxury of minimalism. Devoid of wifi and television, the noise of the civilised world is absent, tuning the senses to silence, rejuvenating and awakening the vital energies that can move all things. The space is uncluttered to create an uninterrupted flow of life-force, encouraging self-expression and free movement.

EXPERIENCES

Forest Strolls

Away from the mundane and flat of the city, turn to the lush and pristine of nature. Take a stroll through the forest to discover local flora and fauna, and perhaps spot a natural phenomenon or two. In the rhythm of the forest, nothing goes unnoticed and the ordinary looks magical.

Meet with Locals

If you’re yearning for some company, pay a visit to the homes of the local families and share with them a cup of chai.

Realign with Your Primordial Rhythm

The forest residence is for self-awakening and there are sessions of meditation and yoga that can truly unleash your deepest and original potential in congruence with nature, which VanaVasa is so abundant in. Let nature caress your mind as it relaxes your body in guided sessions.

Let Nature Nourish You

The culinary experiences at VanaVasa are unhurried and customised. Indulge in local flavours as you taste and re-discover gratitude to nature for the many ways in which it nourishes the soul.
