The best resorts around the country for a spa bachelorette trip

Relax and rejuvenate before your big day!

How can anyone resist the allure of spa bachelorette party itineraries that include long days of lounging by the poolside, luxurious treatments, and an overall relaxing atmosphere? If you’re looking to prioritise self-care over shots the week before your wedding, a spa bachelorette is the way to go. Not only is it a great way to bond with your girlfriends and treat yourself to some TLC, but it’s also a good way to get in that much-needed pampering after months of wedding planning. So, be prepared to sit back and chill out with a drink in your hand and your besties by your side. 

Enjoy some pre-big day pampering with your gal pals at these divine spa resorts!

Ananda In The Himalayas, Uttarakhand

One of the first luxury spa resorts in India, Ananda holds its place on the list of favourites as it constantly innovates and renews its rejuvenating offerings. Nestled at the scenic foothills of the Himalayas, their ever-changing spa cuisine and their visiting master's programme are particular favourites. What’s more is that Ananda Active's new experiences include versatile activities like outdoor treks, hydrotherapy jets, core workouts, massages, and more, making it an invigorating yet relaxing pre-wedding ritual. 

The Imperial Spa, Delhi

If you’re looking for a time-travelling experience in the city, The Imperial Spa is the place to be. You would think you are walking into a 20th-century novel as you enter the impeccably maintained Moroccan-style hotel, graced with Mughal and Indian motifs, in the heart of Delhi. We swear by their macro antioxidant CC facial, which will give your sun-damaged skin a Vitamin C surge, followed by a body massage with the spa’s own Sufi range of oil blends. A delicate sense of luxury awaits you at The Imperial Spa with its range of spa, salon, yoga, and ayurvedic treatments ideal for the bridal party. 

Six Senses Fort Barwara, Rajasthan

A beautiful 14th-century fort in Rajasthan plays home to one of the best wellness resorts in the world. Reinterpreting the gracious and regal ambience of a bygone era, it is commonly referred to as a royal retreat of well-being. From skin analysis and a nail bar, to purifying facials and deep meditations, there’s something for everyone. Lounge by their still or cool pools and sip on mimosas all day while reconnecting with your gal pals. For the bridal party that’s feeling adventurous, they even have a tiger safari that takes you through Ranthambore!

Khyber Himalayan Resort and Spa, Kashmir

Didn’t make it to Gstaad this year? Just head to the Khyber Himalayan for an experience that’s every bit as magical. Besides being close enough to the powdery slopes of the Himalayas to qualify as a ski-in-ski-out resort, their indoor heated pool with its giant glass windows is a huge hit with bachelorette parties. They’ve got a L’Occitane spa to enjoy some après ski pampering and lots of treatments to help you kick back and unwind. We’d recommend trying Khyber’s Revitalizing Aromachologie Massage which combines Swedish and Balinese massage techniques with pine, mint, and rosemary essential oils to cure fatigue. 

Taj Bekal Resort and Spa, Kerala

Set back off Kappil beach, this Taj resort stands out for its uniquely designed villas, which are inspired by traditional houseboats. At Jiva Spa, signature experiences range from Abhisheka—where warm basil-infused water is poured over your body to the sound of gentle chanting in a room filled with incense and candles to Sushupti—where a scalp massage is followed by a herb and honey wrap and a rose petal milk bath. If intense relaxation and some lounging by the backwaters is your vibe, Jiva is just the right place. 

Spa by JW, JW Marriott Goa

Seek a carefree getaway at a spa in Goa, with sandy beaches just minutes away from your abode. Spa by JW Goa offers a tranquil haven, with the best of Turkish and Moroccan treatments—ranging from hammams to massages. They’ve even got gua sha workshops and scent therapy for you to try out with the girls! The best part? You can step out and sunbathe on the beach or shop till you drop at Goa’s famous night markets. 

Hilton Shillim Estate Retreat & Spa, Maharashtra

A wellness escape in the Sayadhari, this award-winning spa is just a short drive from Mumbai. Connect with a personalised Dharana wellness programme through yoga, meditation, conservation walks, and even some cooking lessons. The therapies they offer include acupressure, reiki, pranic healing, and hydrotherapy—with multi-day wellness programmes available as well. Fusing South Asian traditions with contemporary techniques, their luxe Ayurveda-inspired dining and private villas calm the senses while you take in picturesque views of the Western Ghats.
