Indulging in a Spa retreat is a must – it energises your body, mind and soul – while you are on your much needed vacation or seek a tranquil solace in a city to recharge and boost your inner strengths. Blackboard’s visit to the Purovel Sport of Swissotel Kolkata was a royal experience. We chose a Sunday to visit the Spa. However, please keep in mind that weekends are usually a bit rush at the Spas for obvious reasons. You may want to get your Spa treatment done during a weekday to get that extra attention and indulgence. Blackboard’s team has been here at Swissotel Kolkata’s Café Swiss and Maya for several occasions in the past but none has been related to the Spa so far. Hence, we requested for an experiential review of Purovel Sport to present it to Blackboard’s national and global audience.

The Purovel philosophy of Swissotel is derived from the origin of wellbeing and use of nature’s resources, such as stone, wood, water, flora, pure invigorating alpine air and the changing seasons of the Swiss mountains. Pürovel spa treatments, using essential oils organically produced in Switzerland, work in symmetry with the well-designed and modern sports training facilities having both been designed to invigorate and vitalise in rhythm with the seasons.
