Nestled on 1,300 serene acres in the Sullivan Catskills, this lakeview health-focused hideaway (its name means youthful in Sanskrit) starts working its antidotal magic the instant you walk through the door. But it’s the focus on in-depth programs to treat disorders like anxiety, infertility, and insomnia that take the harmonic healing up a notch. Offered all year-round, the four-day insomnia management-intensive focuses on eastern remedies and treatments to cure your sleep issues. The program starts with a wellness consultation and includes daily acupuncture, dosha-balancing Ayurvedic techniques, aromatherapy, shiro-pada abhyangam (translation: head massage) meditation, cleansing, and fatigue-reducing yoga styles like trataka or nidra.
The Chatwal Lodge is located within The Chapin Estate, a 2,500-acre gated residential community, that is just 90 miles north of New York City, in the town of Bethel, New York. Drawing on the surrounding nature preserve, the 100-acre lodge will feature 11 accommodations with Adirondack-style interiors and private patios overlooking the 1,000-acre Toronto Reservoir Lake; a wide array of expert-led outdoor activities and holistic wellness experiences; and a culinary program that emphasizes hyper-seasonality and foraged produce.
There will soon be a new way to experience the natural beauty of the Catskills with the upscale touches of a luxury getaway. The Chatwal Lodge, an all-inclusive getaway about 110 miles northwest of New York City near the town of Bethel, will open on Apr. 1, 2022 on 100 protected acres surrounding the Toronto Reservoir Lake.
