Nature contains immense healing and restorative powers. Humans are the microcosm of the universe. Thus, by being exposed to the pure energy of the elements of universe - space, wind, fire, water and earth - the corresponding elements within the human body are rejuvenated and invigorated.
Space | The immensity of the landscape broadens the capacity in our hearts.
Air | Crisp mornings, fresh mountain air and invigorating pine forests.
Fire | The energizing morning sun, providing energy in its rawest form.
Water | Pure spring water running through the mountains, priceless, the source of life
Earth | The simple pleasures of feeling grounded amidst the fields, forests or meadows.
The silence and pristine nature of the environment fosters clarity of thought and contemplation.
Establishing a healthy and balanced lifestyle is an important concern. The pace is unhurried and relaxing, with ample rest and early morning exercise encouraged. There is opportunity for plenty of walking, and in most instances healthy and nutritious meals are served.
One of the first conditions of happiness is that the link between Man and Nature shall not be broken. — Tolstoy
Traditional architecture reflects profound knowledge of the natural environment and its principles. An appreciation of the harmonious blend between traditional architecture and nature, and its simplicity, grace and timelessness, is uplifting and soothing.
Traditional arts combine the expedient use of indigenous materials, with a community’s aesthetics. We appreciate the sense of personal agency and creativity in these arts, observing their use in daily life.
Gracious sanctuaries in the lap of nature, quiet and restful. Hotels are selected for their warmth and commitment to hospitality, attention to detail, clean and harmonious aesthetics, and proximity to nature.
Our journeys often attract like-minded individuals. There is often time in the evenings for friends to share their thoughts, ideas and experiences, and partake in meaningful discussions. The journey lifts barriers between individuals, and creates a closeness of hearts.
"Architecture, of all the arts, is the one which acts the most slowly, but the most surely, on the soul."
- Ernest Dimnet
