Travel is about discovering your special moment. I can’t decide which was my most special moment at Fazlani Natures Nest: gazing deep into the calm waters of the lake from the breezy machaan, soaking up the spontaneous dance of the peacock as it strutted lazily under the cotton clouds lulling the blue skies, nuzzling against the thoroughbreds at the stallion castle, or delighting in the carefully crafted menu of therapies at the spa, with the gourmet gospels in the wellness line-up at the restaurant.

Fazlani Natures Nest is a cosy cocoon, where nature heals. The sprawling property revels in a heavenly grot across 68 acres: Rich, verdant, fertile fields bring in a treasured organic burst of fruits and vegetables and beautiful landscaping marks the horizon for you in every direction.

Amarine – the medi spa – ushers in a combination of naturopathy, Ayurveda and international treatments. Trained experts work their healing touch through prized therapies, and anti aging beauty specials in the comfortable, spacious rooms. The menu offers a weight loss program, lifestyle coaching, yoga sessions, meditation, detox massages and purgation therapies that work beautifully in sync with your personalised wellness menu at Hive, the garden restaurant.

Fazlani Natures Nest is a self contained eco-system, with organic honey sourced from the mega bee hives, fresh produce from the fields, rainwater harvesting and solar panels for conservation and optimum utilisation of natural resources in this reservoir of sheer calm. Equine therapy rules in the horse ranch: Regale in the beautiful canter of four legged beauties: from Badal to Brutus, and even three adorable ponies. Near the ampitheatre by the lake, turkeys and ducks race across the green. Bicycles are parked aplenty at every 100metres for you to ride the tandem under the sun and then splash around in the three-tier pool by the pottery hut. Nature enthusiasts can further revel in the agro and flora tours across the property.
