Discover a blissful, romantic destination spa nestled within a 100-acre Maharaja’s Palace and Estate. The award-winning Ayurveda resort is cloaked by emerald Sal forests and overlooks the sacred town of Rishikesh. The resort effortlessly fuses Ayurveda, yoga and Vedanta traditions creating a holistic wellness experience. Ananda’s villas feature colonial hill architecture that seamlessly blend into the natural environment with gorgeous views of the valley and palace grounds below. Villas boast personal butlers, airy lounges, deluxe linens atop grand beds, and modern bathrooms with deep saunas that lead out to private infinity pools.
Enjoy wholesome dishes that not only tantalises the tastebuds but heal the body. Based on Ayurveda practices, fare is freshly prepared with organic ingredients in a show kitchen that doles out practical culinary lectures and is served in either the Sal lined deck, tea lounge, regal dining room or private venues dotted throughout the property.
Find balance together and analyse your bodies with comprehensive diagnostic assessments at the physio and fitness centre, before unwinding with tailor made yoga sessions taught by revered teachers, and multitudes of curative treatments from around the world. The adventurous at heart can revel in white water rafting, safaris, and a whole host of spine-tingling excursions.
What we love about Ananda in the Himalayas
- Partner up in the chef’s kitchen and create wonderful meals, listen to lectures on healthy living and the healing properties of different produce and fare.
- Pamper yourselves with couples treatments and enjoy the Tibetan spa treatment that practices Ila. Five blends of wild grown organic oils are used to balance the earth, water, fire and air element, thereby ensuring balance in the body.
- Sunset dips in private villa pools that hang off patio edges in full view of the towering forest ahead – bliss!
