Luxury hotel description - DLW Luxury Hotels Worldwide
Surrounded by pristine Nature, with gurgling mountain springs forming natural boundaries on either side, the Begnas Lake Resort spans a whole hillside of unspoilt forestland. To the North and the North-East are the great Himalayan snowy peaks, below which lie terraced paddy fields and the tranquil Begnas Lake, lending a perfect picture frame for the window of every guestroom. Surrounding the resort area are Chestnut, Orange and other fruit bearing trees interspersed by bushes of Coffee, Cardamom and flowering plants. The entire resort breathes of pure, unadulterated Nature. In this healing and life-nourishing environment, we have established the Himalayan Nature Spa that offers a wide range of classical Ayurvedic treatments as well as soothing and rejuvenating massages conducted by an experienced team of Ayurveda experts from Kerala.

The resort is situated on the southern bank of the lake with every guestroom affording spectacular mountain views.

At The Begnas Lake Resort & Villas it is our Company Policy to source only pure and fresh ingredients that go into preparing your meals. For several years now, we have been growing our own Vegetables, Fruits, Herbs and Spices within and near the resort premises using only organic manure from our kitchen and garden wastes. Similarly, we raise our own Fish and free-run Poultry stocks while plans are afoot to have our own Dairy supplies.
We have taken these initiatives in order to ensure that no harmful chemicals or artificial additives get into our food chain. Understandably, shortfalls in production are made up with local purchases or sourced from the city. Our Chefs too are trained to maintain high levels of hygiene while preparing food so that our guests are assured of a safe and enjoyable dining experience while with us. In the end, aren`t we all, what we eat ?
Mentioned in this menu are some of our vegetarian delights for your dining pleasure and for those guests seeking the health benefits of Ayurveda at The Himalayan Nature Spa. All food items are prepared using Himalayan rock salt for added flavour and health benefits. The old Sanskrit word, Ayurveda is a conjunction of two words; `Ayur` means life and `Veda` means science or knowledge. Hence, simply put, Ayurveda is the Science of Life.
