The Ananda, Himalayas

The history of The Ananda dates back to the reign of the Maharaja with the elegant reception area hosting members of India’s head of state. Now, it prides itself on being a spiritual pathway with expertise in the traditional Indian wellness regimes, Ayurveda, Yoga and Vedanta. With an emphasis on holistic living, The Ananda is the ideal place to indulge in traditional luxury and enjoy the unique and specialist detox techniques of the Indian culture.


The Ananda is nestled in the foothills of the Himalayas, in between the mythological cities of Haridwar and Rishikesh and surrounded by the graceful Sal forests. The remote location of this Indian retreat means you can fully unwind in amongst the stillness of the hills and natural flow of the rivers.

Your room

Stylish and elegant, your room is designed using colours that eco nature in an enchanting and relaxing way. Look out over the natural beauty of the foothills and admire the authentic and elaborate yet understated traditional touches. Your room at The Ananda is the ideal place to drift off into a peaceful slumber during your refreshing stay.

Why we like it

With garden fresh fruit and vegetables, personal and individual spa treatments and service with a completely natural smile, your stay is guaranteed to be entirely subjective to your own needs, tastes and preferences leaving you refreshed, cleansed and utterly pampered.
