Appreciating the efforts towards the development of Indian tourism, Vice President of India, Shri Jagdeep Dhankhar said, “It is the recognition of the hard work that not only pays homage to our country’s culture but Indian Tourism sector has also emerged as one of the key drivers of growth for nation’s economy & employment generation post covid.
He underlined that the ministry of tourism is making sure that every sector of tourism is on an incremental trajectory. He also described India as “heaven for tourism” and urged Indians to explore domestic tourist destinations first before considering International travel. Aligned with the growing global interest in our ancient practices of healing such as Ayurveda and Yoga, he also emphasized that India has immense potential in the field of medical and wellness tourism.

Speaking about Atmantan’s journey, Nikhil Kapur, Co-Founder, Atmantan, said, “This award is a testament to Atmantan’s commitment towards wellness and transformation. In today’s times, people are engulfed by stress, anxiety and lack of peace. Therefore, the idea behind Atmantan was to help build a nation that lives healthy on the outside and inside as well. We are incredibly pleased that the Government of India has recognised and rewarded our vision. This award inspires us to do more.”
Furthermore, elaborating on the wellness sector, he added, “Wellness tourism is on the rise world over as people everywhere are embracing Indian culture & holistic health practices. At Atmantan, we have a multi-dimensional view of health and we use many sciences & modalities (Ayurveda, Naturopathy, Oriental Medicine, Yoga, Fitness, Energy Healing and counseling) to build personalized healing programmes for our guests.”
Atmantan has redefined luxury wellness tourism in the country from just a ‘leisurely break’ to ‘self-healing transformation.’ Atmantan has received a plethora of accolades for its initiatives in the past. The ‘Best Wellness Center’ award adds another feather in its illustrious cap.
