Ananda in the Himalayas

Tehri Garhwal, Uttaranchal

Holistic wellness retreats may bring to mind Spartan living, but not so at Ananda in the Himalayas. Nearly 80 rooms, suites, and villas feature private patios, marble baths, and luxurious decor. The resort, once the palace of the Maharaja of Tehri Garhwal, features a 21,000-square-foot spa as its centerpiece- a haven of health that offers yoga, Ayurvedic care, and Ananda Rejuvenation Cuisine, as well as Western spa therapies. The spa aims to treat guests from the inside out, whether in the form of an intense 14-day dosha-balancing program or a series of massages using oils and herbs.
