The Leela Palaces, Hotels and Resorts embarks on a journey of holistic wellbeing

Aimed at redefining the road to holistic wellbeing, The Leela Palaces, Hotels and Resorts has launched their signature wellness programme – Aujasya by The Leela. A unique blend inspired by traditional and modern practices, Aujasya by The Leela encompasses a collection of authentic experiences that build vivacity and promote the vigour of life, built around the two Rs of wellbeing – Restore (food) and Renew (mindfulness). 

Taking origin from the Sanskrit word, Aujasya – translated as beneficial to strengthening vitality or energy, this initiative will truly allow guests to embrace an enriching and healthy lifestyle. The brand has launched the first pillar, Restore (food), in collaboration with renowned nutritionist and food consultant, Dr Ankita Jalori. The Leela has reimagined culinary experiences across the country by improving the nutritional profile of food menus and offering healthy alternatives. 

Executive Chef, Simran Singh Thapar at The Leela Palace Udaipur and Chef Rishabh Anand at The Leela Palace New Delhi along with their culinary teams across the country have thoughtfully curated menus to achieve the right balance between health needs and gastronomic expectations by focusing on millets, lean proteins, low-fat dairy and whole grains.

With Aujasya by The Leela,we are embarking on a lifelong commitment to holistic wellbeing. Our first step with Dr Jalori has paved the way for a renewed take on food and nutrition. Her expertise in the field combined with her unmatched experience has enabled us to brew signature dishes with a renewed nutritional focus. We are delighted to begin this journey on such a meaningful note and will soon expand our wellbeing offering as we build on the concept of the 2Rs of Wellbeing with a signature touch of The Leela, while staying true to our brand ethos of placing the guest at the centre of everything we do.”

“Having worked in the nutrition and food industry for over 20 years, I am delighted to work with The Leela on conceptualising Aujasya by The Leela. Today people have become more aware and conscious of their wellbeing. Balancing nutrition with taste can be quite a challenge. My science and knowledge and the skill and creativity of the Chefs at The Leela have come together to create this unique brand program for The Leela and I am thrilled to be a part of this wholesome project and look forward to its growth and expansion,” said Dr Ankita Jalori, Food and Nutrition Consultant.
