ila launches first ila only spa at Raas Jodhpur
Beyond Organic British beauty expert ila has unveiled its new brand of ‘ila only’ spas with the launch of ila only Spa Raas Jodhpur – an inspiring blueprint for the heartfelt, healing havens to follow
Evolved from years of experience creating, growing and supporting some of the world’s most inspiring spa success stories, ila only spas are extraordinary soulful spaces where therapists trained in mindfulness and heart consciousness pave the way for transformative healing. Resonating excellence at every level, they help guests to reconnect with themselves, others and the world around them – combining the purest of intentions with the highest levels of natural and ethical integrity to create success both commercially and authentically.
“We have long wanted to develop a range of bespoke spa environments that remain true to their surroundings, hold the essence of wellbeing, and deliver way beyond guest expectations,” said ila’s founder, Denise Leicester. “ila only Spa Raas Jodhpur couldn’t be a more energising start to that story.”
Raas Jodhpur is a luxury boutique hotel located within Jodhpur’s ancient city walls, in the direct gaze of the 500-year-old Mehrangarh Fort. Restored with 21st century verve, its heritage buildings embrace a contemporary approach that remains true to ethics and authenticity. Intelligent design-led interiors fuse antiquity, innovation and sustainability. Outside, the Blue City twirls in a kaleidoscope of colour and creativity, music and dance, literature and love, inspiring ila only Spa Raas Jodhpur’s altogether different artistic immersion: into India’s healing arts.
Within the spa, marma massage, yogic healing and energy work combine with the region’s most profound natural products: blissfully nurturing Rajasthani damascena rose otto; sensual raat ki raani (tuberose) from Himachal; sacred sandalwood from Mysore; balancing Keralan Jasmine; and the healing energy of Himalayan salt crystals – the remains of an ocean trapped over 250 million years ago.
The heavenly Raas Rose Bliss signature treatment captures the romantic exoticism of Jodhpur, combining nurturing Indian damascena rose otto with the sweet headiness of jasmine in a scrub, massage and facial. Intensely soothing and moisturising, it helps balance the hormones, alleviate stress and promote feelings of deep calm.
“ila only Spa Raas Jodhpur is a blissful haven in the most unexpected and enthralling setting,” said Denise. “To have this lovely little spa nestled just a stone’s throw beneath one of India’s largest fortresses, drawing off all the raw energy that it exudes, yet cocooned in the city’s most intriguing luxury boutique hotel, is about as exciting an alignment as we could have envisioned for our first ila only Spa.”
Raas’s charismatic co-owner, Nikhilendra Singh, echoed the sentiments in his summary: “I feel ila’s roots are in India so I see our partnership as ila ‘coming home’. I’m delighted that the first ila only spa will be housed at RAAS.”
Ila Only Spa treatments at Raas Jodhpur start from £28/2,800 INR. Nightly rates at Raas Jodhpur are available from £205/20,500 INR per room per night for two people sharing, including breakfast.
