Wellness Retreat, India

Scope of Work: Market Research & Feasibility, Concept Development


Project Overview: A 121-acre land site in southwest India, with only 2.75 acres available for development and construction, surrounded by a tea plantation. The development site lacks infrastructure, accessibility, and is in a region of India that is prone to strong swings in demand. Horwath HTL Health and Wellness was appointed to assess the viability of a luxury wellness resort that combines traditional healing practices, Western health modalities, and international luxury accommodation. 


Horwath HTL Solution: Proposed a luxury wellness retreat that offers a selection of indigenous healing traditions as well as a high-tech Western wellness center overlooking the valley, merging together Eastern and Western wellness protocols. We developed four distinctive room categories, effectively allowing the resort to cater towards a wide range of domestic and international visitors. To improve the overall guest experience and overcome inherent challenges with the development site, we recommended a cable car system to facilitate guest transportation.


Project Status: The project is currently in planning, and is scheduled to open in 2020/21.
