A Typical Day at TOR

By May 11, 2013July 11th, 2013TOR posts

TOR Spa Retreat is one of a kind.  Tucked away in the Kentish countryside, surrounded by wildlife and abundant gardens, it really is a unique getaway.


The Spa ritual begins with a warm welcome at 9.30.  Forget the conveyor belt of the large spa chains; this is a truly friendly and comforting atmosphere where you are encouraged to feel instantly at home.

Once you have completed your health form you are shown around the facilities and are free to get straight into your luxury robe to relax.

Treatments are very unique at TOR, Ayurvedic oils and techniques are used throughout the treatment choices.  Anyone who has been to a retreat in Kerala will feel immediate familiarity with our Southern Indian Massage Team who have all worked in Kerala before coming to TOR; those who haven’t experienced Ayurveda are in for a real treat.  Whether you want a full body massage or a more traditional treatment such as the ‘Shirodhara’ (where warm oil is poured over your forehead before being massaged in to your head and neck) there will be something which feels just right for you.

Lunch is traditional Ayurvedic cuisine served at a large communal table in the main lounge.  Tranquil Indian music is played, warm comforting dosha neutral food is served and fresh fruit is in abundance.

There are three lounge areas in the spa, two of which look out on to the beautiful gardens and wherever you are light floods into the spa from every angle.  Choose one of our wide ranges of magazines or take your pick from our eclectic book collection and sink into the comfy chairs or lounges.

The superheated oxygenated pool is ideal to soothe away aches and pains and as there is virtually no chlorine in it, you can wallow quite happily for as long as you like.  Our sauna and steam room soothe heat even deeper into your body to give you that wonderfully relaxed ‘spa day’ feeling.

When it is finally time to go home at 4.30 we can guarantee you will feel like staying longer.  We have two rooms overlooking the lake which are available for residential stays, so if you fancy extending your stay then ask about availability when you book.

TOR also offers half days spas, evening spas, Panchakarma healing retreats and treatment only options.  Please look at the website for details and feel free to call us; we are always happy to discuss options and tell you more about what we offer: 01227 728500.
