Published on November 26, 2023

Nestled in the serene environs of Somnath, the Clarks Collection Somnath has recently launched an unparalleled initiative catering to the evolving preferences of modern travellers. Recognizing a surge in the influx of spiritual pilgrims, the property has introduced meticulously crafted personalized packages, aiming to offer an immersive and all-encompassing sojourn in the lap of spiritual sanctity.

Somnath, steeped in historical and religious significance, holds a paramount place in the hearts of Hindu devotees owing to the revered Somnath Temple—a sacred abode dedicated to Lord Shiva and considered among the foremost of the 12 jyotirlingas in the country. With an annual footfall of 80 to 90 lakh visitors, this temple stands as a testament to faith and devotion.

Understanding the aspirations of spiritual explorers, Clarks Collection Somnath has ingeniously curated a spiritual package, harmonizing local expertise, transport facilities, and spiritual guidance. This bespoke offering ensures a seamless and enlightening pilgrimage experience for guests, encompassing not only the iconic Somnath Temple but also lesser-explored gems like the Shri Ram Temple, Triveni Ghat, Bhalka Teerth Temple, and the Prabhas Patan Museum.

The unique allure of this package lies in its comprehensive approach. Not limited to temple visits, guests are treated to the essence of Somnath’s cultural tapestry through local art shows narrating the region’s history and folklore. Moreover, religious discourses and the presence of knowledgeable representatives in temples elevate the spiritual journey, fostering a deeper understanding of the sacred significance enshrined within these hallowed grounds.

Mr Prakash Bedi, Vice President of Clarks Collection, elucidates the motivation behind this initiative, stating, “We envisioned these packages to address the concerns expressed by our guests regarding transparency and organizational issues encountered during their spiritual endeavours. By orchestrating these experiential packages, we strive to ensure an unforgettable and hassle-free pilgrimage for our guests, while maintaining cost-effectiveness."

Beyond the spiritual odyssey, Clarks Collection Somnath boasts an array of amenities—a testament to their commitment to holistic hospitality. With 50 well-appointed rooms across different categories, an expansive banquet hall, a vegetarian restaurant offering Satvik cuisine, a fitness centre, and an indulgent spa, the property caters to diverse guest preferences.

Noteworthy is the brand's emphasis on sustainability and responsible tourism, aligning its ethos with conscientious travel practices. Embracing the diversity of its clientele, the property has witnessed a positive reception from solo travellers, families, spiritual seekers, and the discerning millennial audience.

In their endeavour to continually enhance guest experiences, Clarks Collection Somnath is already contemplating broader packages showcasing the rich tapestry of Somnath’s history and culture—a testament to their commitment to elevating the journey of every traveller seeking solace, spirituality, and cultural enrichment amidst the sacred abodes of Somnath.

As Clarks Collection Somnath invites travellers to embark on a transformative spiritual expedition, their personalized packages promise not just a stay, but an immersive sojourn, unveiling the soul-stirring essence of Somnath’s spiritual heritage.
