Ever thought of detoxifying in the lap of nature & luxury? No, you don’t have to go to the Himalayas. It can happen right here at Atmantan Wellness Retreat, just 4 hours away from Mumbai.
What Is It?
Located in the crystalline land of Mulshi, Atmantan Wellness Centre is not the kind of a resort you would think of. There are no large groups bonding over food or children scurrying across the dining rooms. It is an ultimate wellness & spa destination that is meant for those who love themselves. Here you would be pampered to the tee with healthy gourmet food, soothing massages and peaceful sleep.
This luxurious wellness retreat is probably the most healthy getaway I’ve had in a long time. And if you’re the kind of person who always puts on holiday fat – then maybe, the next time you decide to rejuvenate you should head to Atmantan.
What’s In It?
Atmantan claims to be a divine amalgamation of the atma (soul), mana (mind) and the tann (body). The retreat would help you understand the relationship between sound nutrition and the functioning of the body.
The first thing that happens after you enter Atmantan (and get astounded by the view) is a health check up of sorts. A doctor takes your BMI, understands your lifestyle and your dietary patterns. A diet is then crafted specially for you to help detox your body and get healthier. All this while you lay in the lap of luxury and immerse yourself in the beauty of nature.
Atmantan living offers a range of wellness packages such as a master cleanse, weight balance, journey through yoga, and number of others which help you align your mind and body while gaining utmost peace.
You can even call it a spa holiday of sorts. The entire wellness experience includes a daily massage at their spa – which specially caters to the problem areas in your body.

In The Lap Of Luxury & Nature
After spending 2 nights and three days at this luxury getaway – I would have to agree. The view in itself is phenomenal and no pictures can ever do justice to it. Overlooking the blue waters of Mulshi lake, set against the backdrop of the mighty Sahyadris is healing in itself.
The rooms at Atmantan define luxury. Most rooms come with a bathtub that face the lakes and the mountain. The soft tones of the interiors contrast sharply with the hues of green of the exteriors and you can’t help but be thankful for the immense beauty surrounding you.
The Spa Life
Assess your city lifestyle & BMI and set your health goals with doctor’s consultation. Choose from 8 retreats based on your fitness assessment and body requirements whether it is weight loss, holistic healing or plain relaxation?
In addition to enjoying outdoor exercises that enhance your physical and mental well being, the spa therapies here are meant to melt your stress away offering a plethora of remedies. The extensive menu spans traditional Ayurveda, western massages, oriental acupressure, aromatherapy treatments, holistic anti-ageing facials, the Chi Nei Tsang treatment, purifying body polishes, cocooning wraps and the Pranic chakra scan and cleanse. It also includes specialist treatments such as the Hammam, Vichy showers, open-colonics and soothing Balneotherapy.
The Spa Cuisine
The Spa cuisine is catered specially to help you get fitter and healthier. It’s like the detox your body has always needed. All the ingredients used are from their organic farms and the dietary plan is made to match your dietary goal. I lost one kg in two and a half days without starving – and eating the most delicious food! There’s even dessert – all healthy of course.
What amazed was the portions of the meal. When I first saw it, I was convinced that it was too little for me and I needed some more. Each meal comes in four courses – salads, soups, main course and a dessert. And therefore, interestingly the meal was perfect for me – healthy, full of nutrition, flavour and made completely for my dietary goal.
The resort offers an expanse of 6525 sq. ft. of fitness facilities in addition to world class spa and wellness therapies ranging from traditional Ayurveda, to Pranic chakra cleansing. Atmantan comes equipped with a gym, a swimming pool, a pilates room, a yoga and mediation centre and a quiet room to get in touch with your inner self. The entire experience at Atmantan also comes with its fair share of yoga and exercise. It’s almost like disciplining your body while treating it to a holiday at the same time!
There are various categories of rooms and therapies that one can opt for. Depending on your requirement, you can choose for 3 nights, 5 nights, 7 nights or even a 40 nights rejuvenation package. Starting from Rs 16,500 per night on single occupancy going up till Rs 23,900 per night on double occupancy, each package includes spa therapies, meals and a comfortable stay. The tariff is exclusive of taxes.
Although, we had our heart set on the Mango Tree Villa, which is an exclusive villa, given out only to VIPs. Rumour has it that Ranveer Singh, Karisma Kapoor and many other celebrities come and spend days here to detoxify and get away from the papparazi. Ofcourse, this comes at a price of Rs 1,05,600 per night. Please note, the rates keep fluctuating.
