We are, of course, spa fanatics at HotelChatter, but if we had to pick just one skincare brand that we would chase to the ends of the earth, it'd almost certainly be Ila, a supremely decadent UK brand that calls itself "beyond organic" because it really is something more than a box-ticking exercise - it uses "wild-harvested" biodynamic ingredients from artisan sources around the globe, and Ila products are genuinely unlike any you've used before.
Ila has been hovering around hotel spa land for a couple of years now, but it has just opened its first standalone spa - or Ila Only, as it calls it - at Raas in Jodhpur, India. Treatments are pretty affordable, starting from 2800INR, or $46. Oh, and the treatment rooms look divine.

India is not often thought of as a hotspot to travel due to the possibility of getting strange stomach viruses, the slums, the air pollution, the hordes of people, and rolling blackouts.
But with so many companies investing in India (i.e. outsourcing) and the country's tech boom, India seems set up to make some huge advances. Indeedy, Newsweek has made India the new cover child, proclaiming it, "The New India."
National Geographic Traveler also sought out the "Authentic India" by profiling the city Jodhpur in their latest issue.

Last nights marathon leg of Amazing Race took the racers through India. After a twenty four hour train ride the racers found themselves at the Jodhpur train station.
Directly across from the station the cast lucked into the Adarsh Niwas hotel. According to the racers, and a member of Virtual Tourist, Adarsh Niwa is not anything special, but it is a good clean hotel for $20 a night. More importantly, there is a decent bar, and it looked like many rooms came with balconies that looked out over the lively street.
If you find yourself staying at Adarsh Niwas in Jodhpur, tell Sanjay, the hotel manager we said hello.
