ABOUT THE PROPERTY
In the north Indian state of Uttarakhand, district Nainital situated seven kilometers from Ramnagar, lies an eco- friendly luxurious resort in Corbett Park- ” Aahana- The Corbett Wilderness”.
The resort derives its name from the Sanskrit word- Aahana (first rays of the rising sun) because the first rays of the sun fall on the resort and bathe the landscaped property in golden light. The resort touches the forests of Corbett National Park all along its entire length on the north eastern boundary, contiguous to the forests of the National Park.Rated as the best resort in Jim Corbett national park, as per the guest reviews.

A unique Sewage Treatment Plant (STP) that uses Cannae Root Zone System without use of electricity and chemicals recycles waste water from the facility to provide clean water for gardening.
The entire property has been landscaped with forest species and grass to provide extended space to wildlife. One can often see and listen to wildlife from the living rooms and the other areas.

According to Ayurveda, the body is made up of Tridoshas (Tri’ means ‘Three’ and ‘Doshas’ mean ‘Humours’) – Vata is Air, Pitta is Fire and Kapha is Water.

You would have a unique experience of the most potent healing effect.An integral part of Ayurveda is the massage. We have a range of traditional Ayurveda oils that use herbs and plant extracts and are used in massages and various other wellness therapies in our Spa. Ayurveda massage treatments bring about a balance between the body and the mind, by increasing circulation that bring more nutrition to the cells and by dislodging the body’s metabolic wastes and toxins. A good massage also lubricates the joints, tones the muscles and calms the nervous system.
