Way to the spa

Cuckolded in the cosy spa room and watching the foamy waves hitting the shore and palm trees gently swaying in the breeze while being pampered was an add-on bonus. I opted for the rejuvenating spa that lasted for more than an hour and after the shampoo and shower, I was in a stupor as all my stress and fatigue was toned away and the holistic healing in the Ayurveda way made me experience deep relaxation by removing tensions from my physical, mental and emotional levels.


Spas have been known as places of healing for thousands of years in ancient India.  Ayurveda is an ancient system of life (Ayur) knowledge (Veda) which was documented in the Veda thousands of years ago. Ayurveda theory evolved from a deep understanding of creation.  Ancient people resorted to massages to alleviate pain and cure ailments.  Today’s spas are no longer tied exclusively to pain relief, but they promise relaxation, rejuvenation and a renewed sense of functioning.  Massage now is more a form of luxury rather than a method of healing and what better place than the luxurious Chariot Beach Resort to indulge yourself? At the fundamental level, spas are therapeutic treatments like massage, body treatments and facials, which perk up your sense of well-being but with the traditional holistic system of Ayurveda at Chariot stress, headache, anxiety, toxins, pain, muscle aches will all go.
