Ananda in the Himalayas
Ranked #1 of 2 Hotels in Narendranagar
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 9 December 2016 via mobile

I spent 21 days at the Ananda with the purpose of loosing a few Kilos. I can only congratulate the management and its entire staff for their service. Be the massages, the Yoga team, the restaurant or the receptionists and housekeeping.
All naturally friendly and very well trained.
Although the diet cuisine wasn't the great indien cuisine i desired, it was still tasty and i lost 4 Kg - also with the help of the fitness trainer.
Its good to read that the hotel will be refurbished. Wifi and TV reception should also be improved.

Many thanks to all - see you again, especially Rima & Rushika from the Yoga team

Stayed: December 2016, travelled solo

Ananda is absolutely outstanding in every respect. Every square inch of the property is perfect, every class (Yoga, Pranayama, Vedanta) is top notch. If you go please try to participate in a yoga class or pranayama session led by Reema.
The car trips to Rishikesh may be a bit tricky if you get dizzy easily, for those try to hire the big/tall SUVs they have. If you go to Ananda you have to participate in the sunset ceremony at Parmarth Ashram.

No words for this unique and mind blowing experience. Everything was excellent. Whether the treatment, food, surroundings, yoga, service or the rooms - simply outstanding.

Deeply recommend it to everyone to recover and relax.

We would like to emphasize that the food was delicious and the staff was lovely.

We stayed for a week and there was not one disappointing thing the whole week. The spa treatments are the best, the food totally amazing and the entire staff wonderful. The dining staff go out of the way to accommodate your every wish. Chef Sandeep is a genius, F & B Manager Shyam, along with Pradeep made our stay something special. Dr. Perumbuduri took amazing care of my husband when he got sick.

Almost everyone wears the kurtas all day. At dinner about 2/3 of the guests wore regular clothes. No need to get dressed up. At night it gets cold. I wished that I had brought a shawl. A fleece was very useful. Because the kurtas are white it is helpful to bring white undergarments.

Tipping is not expected. There is a tipping box in the reception room. All the tips received are divided among the employees. We tipped generously because it is the only extra income that many of the employees (especially the spa employees) receive.

Don't miss high tea in the palace. The sweets are to die for. The early morning yoga is the perfect start to a wonderful day.

I have been to Miraval in Tucson, Arizona many times. From now on I'm going to save that money and return to Ananda.

We booked a suite and it was fantastic. The overall experience was pure luxury and worth it! We loved the food, the service and treatments at the spa. The grounds are beautiful and serene. The spa treatments are good, my husband and i did the couple retreat tos our treatments were all. We attended a few of the Vedanta classes and the visiting teachers were so knowledgable and friendly. We did the hike too- but i wish we had known to bring actual hiking shoes ,its a serious trek but worth it. We I would go back any time to this lovely location. The chef is great and the food is very healthy . They come to your door in the morning with a homemade ginger tea that was the best. I miss that!

Room Tip: I suggest a suite- its very large and ours had 2 bathrooms
