Radiant retreat

Holiday mood setting in? Want to relax after a year of hard work?

Skin feeling dry? Want to cleanse and rejuvenate?

Or just feel like switching off your mobile phone and all the cares and get pampered a little?

Check out the ayurvedic massage in a semi rural setting at Radiant Retreat on Bannerghatta Road, about 6 km after the Indain institute of Management campus, opposite the country club. It is tough to miss it as there are signboards for the retreat all the way leading you to the spot. As you drive in you begin to relax already with the lush green all around and the picturesque cottages meant for those wishing to stay for an extended retreat.


If all you want is just a relaxed massage and a bath, you can fix the time and get yourself pampered to a traditional Kerala style massage by expert hands that pamper your skin and relax your muscles. A resident doctor can be consulted for specific problems and the appropriate treatment.

Radiant retreat also offers packages for corporates and individuals – a lumpsum payment for a certain number of treatments over the year. Single massage for 45 minutes including steaming inside a quaint steam chamber and a nice relaxed bath with herbal powder for cleansing costs Rs.500. Worth checking out. I loved the experience.

Phone Numbers:28429822, 25365999.

There is also a small canteen that serves you light healthy food of a limited variety. And some birds like pheasants, ducks and geese to brighten up the place.

Here are some photos:

    Looks wonderful! There is a restaurant called Olive Garden in Mysore at the foothills. It looks a little like it.

    Rajesh, Your comment gave me an idea. We could have the next blogger’s meet there. Actually Michael who owns the place is converting a part of the resort into an area suitable for a day outing for families or groups of friends or even parties. We could all have a massage and discuss the future roadmap for Bangalore blogs with a “cool” head!
