A true sanctuary
For a perfect getaway, or to recharge your healthy habits, or to incorporate some well-being into your life, or to get energized, or for a pure, indulgent, pampering trip...get yourself to Ananda in the Himalayas and you might easily achieve it all. Set against the backdrop of the smoky Shivalik range with the snow-capped Himalayas in the majestic distance, the hotel is strategically located behind the beautiful Maharaja's palace. The spa boasts of a multitude of treatments performed by therapeutic and skilled therapists. The treatment rooms invoke a zen-like atmosphere further enhanced by the gentle and professional masseuses. The food is fresh, flavorful and healthy. The chef is present at all times to take in your requests and offer suggestions as per your goals and health requirements. I loved the daily herbal concoctions available in the restaurant for the effective purpose of detoxing, energizing or digesting. The staff are polite and courteous and eager to help. Everyone is approachable and happy to be of service. You are always made to feel welcome. The hotel organizes a beautiful excursion down to the holy city of Rishikesh for a memorable Aarti by the banks of the revered Ganga river. It is an extraordinary outing worth experiencing. Available at the hotel are informative and relatable Vedanta classes that are talks on spirituality. These simple but profound talks appeal to the layman and offer straightforward tools and techniques in leading a more fulfilling life. They also have talks and workshops offered by visiting masters. There is plenty to do at Ananda and it is also the perfect place to do nothing. You can immerse yourself in the surrounding beauty and that in itself is a good enough reason to visit Ananda in the Himalayas.
Birthday week at Ananda
I was on a solo trip with a stress management program. Been a vegan I have to be very careful with food. But the chef of the resort was very good, I got to try new dishes and I loved it. My stay at the resort was great.
Amazing place, amazing staff and a wonderful experience!
Overall an excellent experience. The scenery is beautiful. All the staff go above and beyond. Yoga and spa were great. Excellent food. A refreshing, relaxing and detoxifying trip. We would highly recommend.
Truly an Excellent Place to Stay and rejuvenate
This is our 3rd Visit. We really enjoy coming to the above Property. The Hotel provides packages for 7 / 14 nights and so forth based on the treatment you like ( I.e. wellness, weight loss etc) Food is accustomed as per you diet requirement and all very healthy and fresh. Ananda has an excellent Spa with truly the best Ayurvedic Massages The rooms are bit tired, requires updating, with Modern equipment and up requires grading the amenities. However the service provided by ALL staff is excellent and first class. They certainly go out of their way to accommodate you on all. We have always stayed here for 2 weeks and you certainly feel you have achieved the best for yourself. Highly recommended.
Amazing 14 Days of Detox
We decided to go to Ananda for celebrating my Birthday in April this year. I was going to stay there for 14 days and my wife was with me for 7 days. I was on a Weight Management program and my wife was on Detox. Our first impression of the property was WOW. The entrance is Grand and extremely well maintained despite it being a Heritage place. The highlight though of our trip were two ... 1) The awesome treatments Ananada has to offer with some of the best trained staff in the business and 2) AMAZING HOSPITALITY... I have to specially mention Chandan Purohit who was in Restaurant and how helpful he was throughout our trip..It was indeed one of the best holidays we had since long and we would certainly go back next year.
