Aranyam Spa at Jim’s Jungle Retreat


Set in the lower Himalayan forests of Uttarakhand, Jim’s Jungle Retreat is proud to share its philosophy of being one with nature through its health and wellbeing spa, The Aranyam. Taken from the Sanskrit word for forest, Aranyam enormously adds to the guest’s holistic experience with its setting in a lush refuge of verdant forest, accompanied by bespoke and organic treatments, Raj-era hospitality and unique wildlife experiences.

Jim’s Jungle Retreat offers a digital and health detox in a sublime world of gorgeous landscapes and fascinating wildlife. Herbal ingredients grown and extracted from the in-house farms serve not only the kitchen for their delicious and healthy cuisine, but also are used in therapies and treatments at the Aranyam spa. Traditional deep tissue and relaxation techniques use various organic, kitchen produce-inspired recipes for skincare and general wellness. A wide range of services including facials, head, foot and neck massages are offered at the spa and each is performed with natural, freshly created concoctions from organic milk, yogurt, honey, spices and herbs grown at the retreat but originating from the surrounding forests. The therapists’ effective techniques like pressure-point therapy for improving blood circulation, toning of muscles, calming the nerves and lubricating the joints, along with the benefits of chemical-free applications, thoroughly rejuvenate a pollution-ravaged skin from the core.

After experiencing the various facets of nature via specially curated jungle walks, safaris, bicycle expeditions, or reading at the well-equipped library or sitting by the pool, the spa offers the perfect way to book-end the day. Amidst the twinkling of kerosene lanterns that ornate the retreat at sunset, the retreat operates at the nexus of luxury and functionality. Within the flora and fauna from the ancient forests of the Terai, Jim’s Jungle Retreat encourages its guests to achieve a beautiful harmony of the mind, body and soul. The experience is a transcendental one, transporting the guest to a place from another time, serendipitously.
