Ananda in the Himalayas

7-Night Ananda in the Himalayas Dhyana Self-Realisation

overview

Ananda is an award-winning luxury destination spa resort in India situated in the Himalayan foothills in Northern India. Located on a 100-acre Maharaja’s Palace Estate, Ananda overlooks the spiritual town of Rishikesh and the Ganges river valley. Voted by Conde Nast Traveller in their Reader Awards 2017 as the Favourite Destination Spa, this luxury retreat is renowned internationally for its integrative approach to Ayurveda, Yoga and Vedanta.

Ananda’s new Dhyana programme is a process of self-realisation aimed to allow guests to gain more control over their physical and mental faculties, balancing them emotionally as well as spiritually. With this new programme, guests are guided through daily meditation sessions including Yoga Nidra (psychic sleep), Ajapa Japa (spontaneous mantra chanting), Antar Mouna (inner silence) and Trataka (gazing on a candle flame).

Ananda’s rooms, suites and villas are designed with classic elegance to complement the colonial architecture and the palace estate. Situated in the foothills of the Himalayas, the resort blends seamlessly with the lush surrounding landscapes. The elegant rooms feature panoramic views of the valley or of the Palace. With a serene and natural feel, each room is a haven in itself with luxurious beds, perfectly appointed bathrooms with bathtubs overlooking landscaped gardens or the valley, and private balconies with picture-perfect views.

Ananda’s healthy cuisine incorporates key principles of Ayurveda, which takes into consideration not just taste, but suitability to body type. The emphasis is on fresh natural foods low in fat and calories using whole grains, fresh fruits and vegetables, lean proteins, low-fat dairy products, and the avoidance of added or artificial salts, colours, flavours, or preservatives.

Ananda features a variety of in-house dining options. The spa’s signature restaurant features the finest Indian, Asian and Western cuisine. Based on the basic values of traditional cooking, the Restaurant explores new vistas in modern gastronomy, with emphasis on a light and healthy meal. Keeping in mind the long duration of stay of the guests, a la carte menu changes every four months according to the season. Guests can choose to dine in the restaurant, decorated with Yantric art; the Tree Top Deck, an outdoor venue with views over the forests and mountains; or the Pavilion, a casual yet elegant setting for drinks and light snacks.

For a light bite or afternoon refreshment, visit The Tea Lounge. Located in the Viceregal Palace, it is a warm, romantic setting for an afternoon cup of tea and light snacks. The lounge walls are adorned with the portraits of the erstwhile Maharaja and the other political dignitaries who visited Narendra Nagar during the reign of the Maharaja.

Guests can also opt for poolside or private dining, for a more intimate experience.
