Once the residence of Maharaja of Tehri-Garhwal, Ananda in the Himalayas is now a world-renowned wellness retreat.
Built on a mountain ridge, located in mid of acres of forest, overlooking the mountains, the valley of the holy town of Rishikesh and the river Ganges, this opulent destination spa is an oasis of restoration, rejuvenation, and peace.
Wellness here is based around four key pillars - Yoga, Meditation, Ayurveda and the philosophy of Vedanta (the search for God within).
The focused programmes are overseen by a line-up of professionals, in the form of Ayurvedic consultants, nutritionists and experienced therapists, who create a personalised therapy and activity programme.
Ananda is especially renowned for its yoga offering, with yogi enthusiasts able to enhance their practice with personalised yoga sessions, yoga nidra and pranayama.
You can stay at this soulful place which is loaded with utter peace surrounded by chirping of birds and rain drops, for a variety of reasons – getting detoxed, stress management, weight loss or perhaps to ‘find’ yourself again.
