A sub-text of the Vedas – the fount of all Indian Wisdom – Ayurveda literally means ‘The Knowledge of Life’ and diet takes up a large part of this approach and is indeed the key to a balanced, full and vital lifestyle. In fact, the system treats all foods as essentially “medicinal”; when consumed correctly, in moderation and in season and at the right time of the day. This way mood, emotion, spirit, and physique stay more in harmony.
This “Perfect Diet” will change from person to person according to their constitution and dosha. According to Ayurveda: five elements – Earth, Water, Fire, Air and Ether (Space) – make up the Universe, and thus, each of us; of course, in different proportions. These elements are further differentiated into ‘Doshas’ – Bio-Elements; Vata, Pitta and Kapha. These – again in unique combinations – maintain and sustain our physical selves. Their equilibrium quite simply, is what Ayurveda strives to achieve. Our meticulously and lovingly designed Ayurvedic menus aim to strike the perfect balance between the three Doshas and also the six tastes (sweet, sour, salty, bitter, pungent, astringent) so as to provide our guests with a happy, healthy and delicious meal.
