I am in India now looking at local and loving it! Recently I stayed at The Jehan Numa Retreat, it is a rare and exclusive getaway – located just within the boundaries of the city of Bhopal, and almost an extension of the Van Vihar National Park. The focus is on the natural and the organic, a harmonious re-connection of the body, mind and soul with the luxurious gifts of nature. A lot of the produce grown on their farm is used in the food in their restaurant their focus being local. They also use local India beauty line Kama, and sell local paper products and cards made of elephant dung, more local beauy products, and foods like honey, and fresh produce their farms. It is a quiet jungle paradise with a calming spa and just a walk away from an animal reserve with caring and attentive staff.
