The #Experientialist notes that fresh mountain air would be just the tonic after the trials and tribulations of the last few months. But why head to the Alps, when you can aim much higher (literally) and take in the Himalayas? In the ultimate mountain buyout, Shakti 360° Leti in India is an escapist’s dream come true: a place to reflect, recalibrate and allow the peace and breathtaking natural surroundings do its magic.
It has just four stunning pavilions, so it’s perfect for a fab group of eight to chill at 8,000 feet – but if you’re thinking back to basic yurts, then you’re barking up the wrong Bodhi tree! The design style here is contemporary lodge, but done with age old building techniques for that bit of local flavour.
You’d be tempted not to leave your accommodation, but head outdoors and there are mountain walks with views of perennially snow-capped peaks to take on, as well as the region’s signature yoga and meditation.
And you can rest assured that you won’t be stressed with the cost either. For just £61,000 or $76,500, you can have the whole place to yourself for seven nights – and this is fully inclusive, complete with all activities and support staff, car at your disposal as well as return transfers to the local airport, not to mention the star team member at your beck and call, your private chef. Did someone say “Ommmm”?
