Ms. Divia Thani, Editor – Conde Nast Traveler, India opens the article by saying that "The Oberoi Group has transported the best elements of its uber-luxe ‘Vilas’ properties to the very tip of the 8,000-acre, protected Siswan Forest Range near Chandigarh, creating Sukhvilas, its first destination spa and resort." Highlighting the fact that "when the first Vilas property opened in Jaipur, back in 1997, it charted a new course for the Indian hotel chain, propelling it towards global stardom with its unparalleled level of personalised service for affluent international traveller."
As for The Oberoi Sukhvilas Resort & Spa, Ms. Thani says, "The Oberoi is hoping to replicate and build on these successes with a truly unique new offering. The 12,000ft spa (opening early 2017) is a unique combination of ayurvedic, Eastern and Western therapies and includes hydrotherapy, an infrared sauna, a Turkish hammam and a Roman tepidarium as well as programmes for stress/weight management, detox and rejuvenation, that will be fully customised on-site." Lastly, Ms. Thani emphasis that "you needn’t visit Sukhvilas only for wellness; this is equally a getaway for nature-lovers. Go trekking or birdwatching in the lush Siswan forest, situated in the last fold of the outer Himalayas, and full of beautiful Indian mahogany trees (and the occasional leopard). Return to a feast of authentic Punjabi cuisine, replete with homemade butter and mango pickle."
