Spent two nights at this beautiful resort.The most impressive thing is the extremely curteous & polite staff.From the time you are recieved to the time you depart they make you feel like a royalty. The concept of providing loose kurta pyjamas is unique & comfortable.However my suggestion to the management would be to make them off white instead of pure...

Myself and 4 of my girl friends from Lagos were at Ananda in June for 5 days. We wanted a relaxing retreat where we'd be pampered and well taken care of. Ananda fulfilled our desires for sure.

We had high expectations of this place, after hearing so much about it. We were not overwhelmed by this property, although it is nice, it is not luxurious like some of the Oberoi and Taj properties across India. The 'wellness' feeling isn't as high as I would expect, lush gardens but also alot of concrete and use of plastic etc....
