With stays immersed in nature, Woods at Sasan enables guests to travel sustainably and experience a soothing, biophilic environment.
As the pandemic shows signs of ebbing, people are once again looking forward to planning their travels and explorations. After almost two years of being indoors, an emerging travel aspiration is a yearning to connect with nature and enjoy a holiday in the open – this innate desire humans have to interact with the natural world is a phenomenon called biophilia.
Woods at Sasan, a biophilic retreat in the Sasan Gir forest resort, understands that travellers today aspire for more meaningful experiences, a healthful dose of nature, and to soak up the culture and environment of their chosen destination.
At this modern design in a remote location, the spaces and structures are designed to bring about interaction with nature through all five senses – the semi-open rooms blur the divide between inside and outside, and the unfiltered scents, sounds, touch (and taste!) of the lush environment offer a multi-sensory natural immersion. This secluded forest retreat is an ideal escape from the noise and commotion of the city.
In their continuing endeavour to offer an experience of unmatched tranquillity backed by a care for the safety and well-being of their guests, they have introduced a ‘Biophilic Bubble’ – a green space where all hygiene requirements and precautionary measures mandated by the WHO, as well as current government and tourism industry recommendations are followed.
Woods at Sasan has worked with Equinox labs, an FSSAI approved NABL accredited organisation and is now certified as a ‘Safe Place to Stay’ based on MHA guidelines and FSSAI regulations.
Says Maulik Bhagat, Founder, Woods at Sasan and 1000 Island Hotels & Resorts, “The biophilic bubble is an important step in preparation for Woods at Sasan to welcome guests with confidence, and reinforces the already rigorous hygiene and safety protocols that the retreat has always followed. We are committed to delivering therapeutic and sustainable experiences, and we hope our beautiful surroundings allow guests the opportunity to reconnect with themselves and also create some unforgettable memories.”
Located in a secluded corner and encircled by the Sasan Gir forest, Woods at Sasan extends unique experiences filled with nature’s wonders. A forerunner in sustainable tourism in India, Woods at Sasan offers excursions that celebrate the beauty of the jungle and its inhabitants through Birding and Nature Trails, Safaris, and Transformative Game Drive accompanied by their in-house naturalist.
They discover not just the famed lions, but the wonderfully diverse fauna and flora of the region. Given today’s situation, engaging with nature and taking in a regular dose of well-being strengthens energy and boosts immunity. The advantage of a stay at WAS is that it allows one to explore all aspects of holistic well-being- mental, physical and spiritual.
The peaceful surroundings, bespoke Wellness Pathways offering Yoga and Ayurveda, Nutritional pathways offering carefully crafted saatvik diet options ensure a feeling of wellness from within, while their ‘Biophilic Bubble’ and care for protocols, ensure complete safety of their guests.
About Woods At Sasan
Woods at Sasan is the flagship venture of 1000 Island Hotels and Resorts, a hospitality signature that brings people closer to themselves and the environment. Woods at Sasan ‘grew’ out of a belief in a sustainable and meaningful ecosystem of hospitality. It draws upon the natural terrain and local culture to shape its philosophies concerning its architecture, the environment, and the spirit of hosting.
The resort is built in and around an 8-acre mango orchard with over 280 trees that yield a sizable mango crop in the summertime and attract a variety of insects, birds, and wildlife. An oasis of quiet and lush greenery that merges into the Gir forest resort, the 38-key property is a serene blend of contemporary spaces and culture-inspired interiors that merge into the landscape.
With spaces designed for clear, natural lighting and an uninterrupted view of the orchard or the forest, one may enjoy living within nature with all the conveniences that the heart desires.
