Description

The Himalayas are renowned for their spiritual presence, and are said to be charged with the power and energy of the goddess Parvati. Ananda Spa and Resort, named Conde Nast Traveller's 'World's Best Spa', encourages guests to seek harmony, rebalance themselves and to find peace with their surroundings.

Ancient Indians believed the key to wellbeing was in achieving harmony within themselves. At Ananda, therapists and yogic philosophers find ways of recreating synergy between mind, body and intellect through the revitalising methods of Ayurveda, Yoga and Vedenta.

The Ananda resort has been host to many famous guests, including Oprah Winfrey, and has won a host of awards, including CN Traveller's 'Best Spa in the World', Tatler's 'Most Heavenly Hideaway' and 'Leading Spa Resort' from the SATTE Best Achiever's Awards.

You will stay in a luxury Palace View room, with a four fixture bathroom and private balcony. Since every individual is unique, the programmes and therapies offered are tailored to each guests' needs with a full consultation before the journey begins.

Yoga at Ananda is traditional in form, stemming from the roots of Hatha and adapted to suit individual needs. It is a disciplined science encompassing all aspects of life, with the ultimate aim being eternal bliss, Sat-Chit-Ananda.

Ananda's experienced Yoga teachers are focused on helping you achieve personal objectives and goals during your stay. A specific Yoga and meditation programme will be designed for each guest, to help balance your being and achieve health and well being.

Ananda teaches the techniques of the Bihar School of Yoga, also known as Satyananda Yoga. This technique is based on traditional yogic teachings in conjunction with modern physical and mental health sciences.

Reviews

  • Exotic Retreat in India

    beautiful property nestled in the mountains above Rishikesh. Takes about 45 mins by car from Dehradun airport. You arrive into a beautiful palace from where, you are taken to your room by a golf cart. Rooms are large, spacious and have beautiful balconies where you can sit and appreciate the view for hours. Select the premium valley view rooms to get a view of the Ganga! Large bathrooms with tubs rights near the window so you can soak in the same view (literally!). Meals are at the pavillion and tree-top restaurants. Weather permitting, sit at the tree-top which is open air and makes for creation of wonderful memories. Take time to attend the yoga classes and vedanta lectures (part of the package).

    Inspirational Place to Unwind and Relax

    Looking for some escape inspiration? Check out the world's finest luxury health and wellbeing resort. It is set in a former Maharaja’s palace overlooking the holy Ganges. It is the best ever Hotel Spa I have found. Ananda in the Himalayas is next to Rishikesh. with modern spa therapies which makes it the perfect place for total rejuvenation of the body, mind and soul. We did Yoga treatment. The cuisine offered is rich in fresh natural and unprocessed foods. The best we had.
    The staff is very helpfull. Certainly will go back and back.

  • Excellent Spa Resort

    The best spa in the world. A very serene and beautifully located resort. The spa treatment was the best we have ever had. The food was fabulous. service was excellent. The yoga and meditation sessions were excellent. We will surely visit the place again.

    Beautiful Yoga Retreat

    A completely Royal experience. The property is well maintained. Looks like a palace in the hills. Offers beautiful view of the Himalayas. Rooms are very good. Dont miss the night sky.. it's a treat for city dwellers.

  • Amazing Spa Treatments

    Beauty and peace in the foothills of the mountains. LOVED being at this resort! It was a bit challenging to get to as I was coming from Varanasi. Flew into Delhi then took a train to Haridwar. Many delays due to fog. Despite the delays, I managed to enjoy some amazing treatments in the week I got to spend here. It is a beautiful location with lush mountains surrounding it. The treatments were amazing and I've been to quite a few spas in my lifetime. Food was delicious and healthy! The bed and pillows were like none I've ever experienced before! Found the staff to be super friendly and accommodating.

    Relaxing Yoga Retreat

    First of all it's one of the most beautiful places in the world. See the pink and red sunrise in the Himalayas and you won't ever forget it! At Ananda you can do this from the room...

    Yoga lessons were great, very nice instructors. The vegetarian food was really fantastic! Treatments depend on the therapists. Very relaxing.

  • Best Place to Visit in India

    We went there for sublime relaxation on my birthday and the arrangements made so we could celebrate in the most romantic way were excellent. Thanks to Truly and Ananda for this.

    Apart from this, the staff are courteous, the place is serene, food was mouth watering, the spa was one of the best I have been to. In short a must visit place in India where you can get energised.

    Amazing Resort

    No words are enough to praise this resort. Just too amazing. The staff, the respect you get from them, the service, the spa service, the food, the rooms, everything is just too amazing. You will love this place and will feel like staying there for ever. Actually I don't know what to say in short its just too amazing.

  • Serenely Relaxing Place to Unwind

    If you want to rejuvenate your body, mind and spirit, Ananda is the place. You can start your day with Ananda signature tea, followed by Yoga sessions conducted by experienced trainers. Sessions on Vedanta - philosophy of life - set your mind thinking. Ayurveda massage and spa treatments are simply the best. It is a beautiful property on a hilltop surrounded by forest and overlooking Rishikesh. They give you fresh white Kurta Pyjamas everyday, which are practical for the Yoga and meditation sessions. The service and hospitality is impeccable.

    The food is awesome. The multi cuisine menu offers a vast variety; besides the Chef can turn out excellent Garhwali food on request. The rooms are thoughtfully designed and extremely well maintained. The staff is very courteous and helpful. The property is beautiful and serene. One can visit it again and again.
