The Ananda, Himalayas

The history of The Ananda dates back to the reign of the Maharaja with the elegant front desk 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.
