Thursdays Begin Long Weekends for Techies Who Head to Leela's Spas in Bangalore and Kovalam to Unwind and De-stress

Bangalore -- January 2008 -- What do American hi-tech and finance pros from Microsoft, IBM, Dell and Goldman Sachs do when they are done with business in India? They indulge in a Royal Spa Weekend at the five-star Leela Palace Kempinski in Bangalore or hop on plane and fly an hour to the ultra-luxurious Leela Kovalam Beach Resort in Kerala and enjoy the hotel's new 8,000-square-foot Divya Spa and Ayurvedic Center. Weekend room rates and spa services at the spectacular Leela Kovalam are a "steal" with lodging prices starting at $215 per night and spa treatments beginning at $55.

The five-star Leela Kovalam Beach Resort in Kerala, located in the south of India and nestled on a spectacular outcropping of rock with panoramic views of the Arabian Sea, has fifteen highly trained therapists and four dedicated Ayurvedic doctors who create tailored Ayurvedic programs for each guest.


And if you can stretch your weekend out a few days...
