About Ananda in the Himalayas
Enveloped by vibrant green foliage and valleys, brisk mountain air, and refreshing spring waters, the 100-acre Ananda in the Himalayas, once the residential palace of a maharajah, promotes a holistic approach to healing the mind, body, and spirit through its philosophy of combining Ayurveda, Vedanta, and yoga. Bordered by the River Ganges, overlooking the town of Rishikesh, the elegant destination spa in the Himalaya foothills is a winner of multiple Spafinder and Condé Nast Traveler awards, including “Best Destination Spa, India,” in Condé Nast’s 2014 Readers’ Travel Awards. Traditional Indian practices balance with international-inspired wellness experiences and healthy organic cuisine; as well, signature programs encompass Ayurvedic Rejuvenation, Detox, Yogic Detox, Weight Management, and Stress Management.
Ananda’s wellness programs include accommodations, airport transfer, all meals, spa treatments, yoga and meditation sessions, and personal consultations; programs vary from five to 14 nights and are tailor-made for individual health goals.
