All during our stay the wifi and mobile network all thru the stay in every part of the property was pathetic and it's real hard to get anything done while there. Good scenic but the property is quite dated with hardly any facilities. No computer room or center as the wifi and mobile both very sad and dated.

Me and my family visited this heavenly place about 33km uphill Rishikesh in Tehri Gadhwal district. WoW!!! What a place, scenic beauty of nature, super panoramic views of Himalayas mountains, Ganges and dense green forest. Loaded with utter peace surrounded by chirping of birds and rain drops more often! Must visit. The hospitality at its highest level of ethics, discipline, punctuality, ever ready to serve and explain. Mr Purohit who heads Restaurant is a gem, so humble and super caretaker to Ananda’s guests!! He deserves big appreciation from all fronts! Besides, Mr Neeraj who heads sales for Ananda such an amazing person, always helpful and sort out guests issues with open arms! Indeed a heavenly abode in the lap of Himalayas!! 👍👍👍👍👍 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

A completely different world to experience! The road leading to the property itself gives a taste of the experience about to come, and the experience is fantastic! In these time of Covid, it proved to be a perfect escape from the city and for some rejuvenation. To preface, the staff is beyond excellent, the service is extraordinary. They are courteous, polite, compensating to our needs and demands, and are clearly well-trained. The rooms are spacious and have all the basic requirements. They provide about 10 different pillows, and although we chose to use none of them, it's a nice touch. The bed might be a little uncomfortable for some. The complimentary daily immunity boosters served are unique and tasty, and provide a good supper. There's also a nice gong that you can use to create a serene symphony (or to irritate your roommate). Finally, the morning ginger-honey tea was a great wake up drink. The restaurant (besides the spa) is perhaps the crown jewel of this property. The menu items are extremely diverse in terms of both cuisines and taste. The items are geared towards wellness, and still manage to maintain the balance between health and taste. There was not a single item on the menu that we did not enjoy. The restaurant as good as it was, had the most wonderful staff to make the food experience 10x better. I would like to point out Purohit and Ayush specifically, who had undoubtedly made our time in Ananda unforgettable. Both of them had been extremely mannered, and knowledgeable about the menu items. They were able to tell us the preparation, ingredients, and even gave us wonderful suggestions for food combos and dish modifications. The meditation and yoga sessions are nice, although (and understandably so) for beginners. So if you're a yoga veteran, chances are you'd be a little disappointed. All in all, the place is nice and beautiful, but the staff makes it an unforgettable experience!
