About This Hotel
Once the residence of Maharaja of Tehri-Garhwal. An opulent destination spa in the Himalayas, Ananda is an oasis of restoration, rejuvenation, and peace.
This is the Himalayas as experienced by the gods. Go on a journey of self-discovery in the tranquil Himalayan foothills, and partake in Indian and International wellness regimes to bring about the union of mind, body, and soul.
The Ananda Spa focuses on the traditional sciences of Yoga and Ayurveda, with personalized therapy and activities programs. Try an ancient Indian body mask with warming oils of ginger and cardamom. Meditate on the restoring effects of a rose quartz glow.
Built on a mountain ridge, the guestrooms have minimalist but luxurious decor that reflect the resort's spiritual nature. Awaken each morning to a cup of ginger honey lemon tea delivered to your room. Practice yoga on your private balcony, with a breathtaking view of the Himalayas. Ask staff to prepare a stress-relieving soak in the privacy of your room.
Seeking an even greater journey? Time your stay with visiting Masters - teachers and healers who come to the Ananda to share their gifts with others.
