You're What You Eat. Eat Wholesomely.

Nourish your spirit.

Get an in-house nutritionist who liaisons between you and the kitchens. Take advantage of a custom regimen for your personal dietary.

Our approach to nutrition is rooted in the ancient Indian belief that you are what you eat.

  1. It does not count calories but fosters a more balanced regimen. It encourages you to enjoy your food, relish its creation, and adopt a lifelong discipline and attitude to wholesome nutrition.
  2. Our emphasis is on whole grains, fresh fruits and vegetables, lean proteins, and low-fat dairy products.
  3. We avoid artificial salts, colors, flavors, sugars, and preservatives.
  4. The food is organic, sourced locally, and delivered from the farm to the table, for immediate consumption.
  5. An extensive juice and vegetable extract selection awaits you.

What this means is that you get fresh, flavourful, wholesome food. You get to choose from artfully created regional Indian and the Mediterranean fare. Meat, fish, and vegetables are featured for your pleasure and to accommodate your personal choices.

What’s more, we will happily accommodate your food intolerances (soymilk instead of cowʼs milk and yeast free bread). Menus feature little salt. Sugar is mostly removed. Raw vegetables and fruits, rich in living enzymes, will complement your wellness and being at Shillim.

The restaurants at Shillim are inspired by the 5 elements of Ayurveda.

  • The Green Table

    With a menu that is designed around Western Spa cuisine and Indian influences, the Spa restaurant draws inspiration of the element of “Water” incorporating the benefits of food that are nutritious, healthy and yet flavourful.

    The emphasis is in low-calorie content, organic and seasonal produce.

    Special cooking techniques enhance the essential flavours but retain the natural textures of food.

    The Green Table complements the holistic approach to health. The food and beverages at the Shillim features body type and tasting menus. Its very presentation tell a story. This forms an essential part of The Green Table experience.

  • Wellness is a theme throughout the resort. All food at The Green Table restaurant is organic and my lunch there was a delight, from the chilled beetroot and orange soup to the superb imported Black Angus fillet.

    All ingredients at this restaurant are sourced from local farms, and the resort is in the process of planting an organic vegetable garden. There are four more restaurants at Shillim Estate serving French, Mediterranean and Asian food, as well as customised food experiences, where guests can pick a scenic spot on the property to dine in private.

    After lunch I trekked up to the highest point on the property, a grassy plateau with grandstand views of Lake Pawna. From here, the resort’s isolation becomes wonderfully clear. The lake and its surrounding peaks are all you can see for miles around. Bike riding, trekking, fishing, picnicking and paragliding are the main guest activities on offer; there are also future plans for horse-riding at an equestrian centre.

    As the day drew to a close, I headed to the Valley Bar at the glass-walled Clubhouse, which has an outdoor deck for cigar enthusiasts. Sipping on a glass of Henschke Julius Eden Valley Riesling wine as the hills glowed orange in the setting sun was a suitable end to a spectacular day.

    In addition to the luxurious experience Shillim Estate has created, the retreat’s real achievement is giving guests the chance to dissolve into nature and truly escape from the world, while still being close to home
