A cardinal principle for the ancient Hindus was that there is no dividing line in human personality between mind and body. The mind is body and the body is mind.
Located in the tranquil Himalayan foothills, close to the mythological cities of Haridwar and Rishikesh, surrounded by graceful Sal forests, overlooking the peaceful Ganga as it meanders into the distance, Ananda is the spiritual pathway to a world class Destination Spa.
Once the residence of the Maharaja of Tehri-Garhwal, now is dedicated to those searching for peace, harmony and wellbeing. Grounded in Ayurveda, Yoga and Vedanta (a philosophy of life), combined with contemporary international wellness experiences which enhance and augment the original, Ananda Spa is the ultimate escape from mundane to spiritual, where every corner spells harmony and every color soothes the senses.
The 24,000 square foot Spa offers an extensive menu of over 80 body and beauty treatments, integrating the traditional Indian systems of Ayurveda with the more contemporary Western approach. The Spa experience strives to achieve the ultimate harmony between physical and mental realms, designed to meet individual needs and health goals: de-stress, detoxification and cleansing, deep relaxation, anti-ageing, weight & inch loss.
When living is part of the echo of nature, then style and elegance blend discreetly to enhance each nuance of serenity. The guest rooms, suites and villas make a statement with colors of nature, and views that leave one gazing into the enchantment of God’s own country.
