Ananda in the Himalayas


World-class wellness in one of India’s most spiritual locations. Whether you want to reawaken your mind or rejuvenate your body, there’s nowhere better than Ananda. Clinging to a ridge in the Himalayan foothills and surrounded by graceful Sal forests, India’s premier destination spa is set within the lush grounds of a Maharaja’s palace and combines unbeatable spa facilities with peaceful solitude.

Everything about Ananda is designed for you to experience optimum health. Dip into daily yoga, meditation, and reiki classes. Choose between over 80 body and beauty treatments at the extensive spa, from Ayurvedic experiences to contemporary Western therapies. Or if you have a specific purpose in mind, personalised programmes in everything from weight loss and insomnia management to stress alleviation and yoga training will expertly guide you towards your goal.

Your room is a suitably serene haven. Fresh cotton Kurta pyjamas, suitable for wearing at daily classes and mealtimes, are provided on a daily basis. Unwind with an aromatic soak in your huge bathtub while gazing at panoramic views of the valley or palace. For the ultimate indulgence, we recommend a stay in one of the villas where you’ll have your own pool, sauna and private butler.

If you want to get out and explore, you can do that too. Set off on a Himalayan hike into the surrounding Sal forests while breathing the clear mountain air. Go white water rafting on the River Ganges. Or finish a day of revitalising spa treatments with a visit to the nearby holy town of Rishikesh to witness the atmospheric aarti fire ceremony.
