Erna Low Body & Soul revamps website

Wednesday 18 April, 2007

Barberyn ReefTravel spa firm Erna Low Body & Soul has re-launched its website to include picture libraries, local area information and improved design. There is also a short break section, aimed at so-called cash-rich, time-poor consumers on the hunt for a quick but rejuvenating escape.


Around 60 international spas are featured, divided into categories such as destination, hotel, medical, relaxation and pampering, thalassotherapy and weight loss.

The acclaimed 70-room Ananda near Rishikesh, India is among the centres featured.

The Ananda, which means happiness in Sanskrit, offers a three-pronged programme of yoga - hatha, kriya and raja - and perches on a 100-acre estate above the river Ganges.

Others featured include Barberyn Reef, Sri Lanka's first Ayurvedic resort, and Shanti Ananda Maurice in Mauritius.

Erna Low Body & Soul was launched by Erna Low in the 1930s as a pioneer of the skiing holiday. The company's body and soul division is part of huge spa industry that has mushroomed in recent years.
