breathe well >> Bad breathing habits can give rise to a lot of unexpected negative effects on our health and well-being. Healthy breathing is very important in maintaining a balanced body because each breath has an immediate effect on the nervous system. A dysfunctional breathing habit, like a short and forced one, results in a tense body and much higher levels of stress. By taking control of our breathing and making it more relaxed, our body tunes in and becomes relaxed as well which leads to better functioning in general.

RESORTstories Only 5-star resort with a sailing centre

OUR 17TH CENTURY CHAPEL

Our chapel has two stories of its origin. Legend has it as a chapel built by the local fishermen as a place to worship. But after the plague of the mid 17th century, it was abandoned which lead to its destruction. However historians have a different story to tell. They believe that this Chapel was built in 1613 by Gonsalo Pinto da Fonseca when Bambolim was declared as a separate parish. This chapel lost its prominence in 1616 when a new church was built on Orth de Vigar or Padigaracho Dongor. Our Lady of Belem, Confraria Nossa Senhora De Belem church which is now located on the hill, regularly sees people coming in for Sunday Mass. Until the hotel was built, fishermen still used this place as a safe house to store their nets or other fishing equipment for safekeeping under God’s protection. Till date, locals come to pray at this chapel.

Capiz Shells

The name #CapizBar is derived from the #CapizShells that are exclusively found on the #Bambolim Bay

Terrazzo style of tiling One of the largest banquet facilities in India, spread over 32,000 sq ft (3,000 sq m) indoor venues

Jharokha

The Terrazzo style of tiling is a unique system of tilling that was used in ancient India. This style can be seen in the lobby of the resort and is similar to mosaic tiles, however rectangular in shape. Each rectangular piece has been hand placed therefore causing some unique imperfections across the lobby floor.

Strategically located above the banquet entrance, the jharokha gives every bridal couple a traditional royal entrance with petals or confetti bestowed upon them. The artistic woodwork around the jharokha is a traditional intricate design done in Burma Teak.

it is never too early for children and teens to learn the secrets of relaxation and beauty. therefore, shamana spa has created what can be the best experience suitable for young people’s needs. going to the spa for some pampering is great, but going with kids is even better! all our spa treatments use 100% natural and paraben-free products.

every child is born divine. and as we grow up, they say we lose our connection with the inner self. which is why, yoga and mindful meditation brings our children closer to who they really are, their very best within. an introduction to such practice leads the way for a better world.

KIDS (BETWEEN 5 AND 18 YEARS OLD) relaxation discovery | 30 min Head & Foot Massage

my first facial | 30 min Get fairy tale-ready with a facial that includes a cleanse and massage. Your beautiful face will be glowing and your lips will be shining after an application of a flavored lip gloss.

on cloud nine | 30 min Relaxing treatment for the back, shoulders & head chocolate craziness, you have to try it! | 30 min It's every child's dream to be covered in chocolate. A sweet mask and massage will make them feel like a walking chocolate bar.

Walk into the Shamana Spa for a unique experience of

Halotherapy Halotherapy, derived from the Greek halos, meaning salt, is a form of alternative medicine which makes use of salt.

Himalayan Salt blocks are natural negative ion generators. Negative ions occur more often in nature and they are often created by things like lightning storms, sunlight, waterfalls, and ocean waves. This is one of the reasons people often report feeling renewed or refreshed after been exposed to a natural atmosphere. Places like waterfalls and beaches where negative ions are naturally produced can have a negative ion concentration of up to 10,000 negative ions per cubic centimeter whereas busy cities can have negative ion levels as low as 100 ions per cubic centimeter. Negative ions increase the flow of oxygen to the brain; resulting in higher alertness, decreased drowsiness, and more mental energy. They also protect against germs in the air, resulting in decreased irritation due to inhaling various particles that make you sneeze, cough, or have a throat irritation

86

SHAMANA SPA

SALT-SAUNA ROOM

salt sauna room is lined with pure blocks of mineral himalayan salt, and it releases negative ions that create a fresh, clean, bacteria-free environment. as every other sauna, salt sauna reduces the effects of stressful life and has good effects on the purification of skin. the heat from salt sauna releases the negative ions, which are captured in salt. its many benefits include regulating blood pressure, balancing blood sugar and ph acid levels, promoting healthy patterns in intimacy and sleep, and help in reducing the common signs of aging. 87
