It’s like sleeping on a South Indian cloud
Traveling to a new place, particularly one as culturally rich as South India, can be quite a nerve-racking experience. Understandably so, which is why we want to highlight some of the places we will be going on our 2014 South Indian Spiritual Adventure in order to quell as many fears as possible and share more information about where we will be going and all of the adventures we will be having. Not only are we looking at the places that will delight the senses during the day, but also the high-quality accommodations in which we will be staying.
Our March 2014 South Indian Spiritual Adventure is packed with cultural immersions, creating days that are full and saturated with exciting experiences. In order to balance all the activity of the day, we have lined up some of the most beautiful locations to find respite and revive the body and the spirit.
Our first hotel is the Radisson Blu Resort in Mamallapuram. Known for its exceptional service and breathtaking views, the hotel has all the amenities one could desire, including an Ayurvedic wellness center. Situated right on the Bay of Bengal across 44 acres, it is the perfect place to land and prepare for the transformative journey ahead. You will have the best sleep of your life here, well deserved after a long plane ride. After a good night of rest, we will be off on our next adventure through the sacred south.

I’m particularly drawn to historical sites and spent most of my time exploring a few of the main palaces wi...Read More
Tamil Nadu, the land of the Tamils, was dominated by the Dravidian culture for 2500 years.
