“A Spa vacation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 weeks ago

Ananda offers you a very special spa experience. It is set in a beautiful landscaped hillside in the Himalayas and has incorporated a bit of the Maharaja of Tehri's palace property. There are various packages on offer and the food offerings are varied and calorie count is given against each item on the menu. The dining area has a vast elevated wooden platform around it and provides a very scenic setting for an outdoor meal. The Spa treatments are very relaxing and refreshing.

Room Tip: Valley view rooms

We took a couples connect package and were more than pleased!
We don't know where to begin-
Fantastic welcome ceremony, super professional attention to details, well appointed rooms, highly courteous staff, delicious food and drink options ( don't miss the evening high tea) beautiful scenery, guided mountain treks, yoga and meditation sessions, clean and scenic outdoor pool and last but definitely not the least- the spa and massage sessions (everything with the spa experience was truly fantastic).
Peacocks walk the grounds, Ganges winds down the slopes from your terrace, and Himalayan peaks beckon from a distance. What more would one want on a holiday from a lifetime?
Starting from the Director of Operations, Rahul, to everyone else in the staff, emphasis on nothing but excellence in customer service was apparent at every step.
There is no way we would not return soon!

Our travel agent of 20 years insisted we must go to this place. He was so true, it turned out to be an amazing experience.
The owner loves his property. No cutting corners. Excellent buildings, great maintenance, smiling and helping staff, 250 helping employees for only 80 rooms. Wonderful spas and massages, attentive security guards, new vehicles and polite drivers. What more you ask for ?
Mansi, Geeta, GM Rahul Makhija, in main office and Rahul, Saurabh, Roopesh, Sandeep in F&B were outstanding.
F&B Director Shyam Panvar and chief Cheff Sandeep made my wife's 60 th birthday very very special with great menu, many candles and live music.
Their Spa is out of world and all massage artisans are excellent and highly trained.
Place is worth all money spent.
Last but not least. They had upgraded us to premium valley view rooms. Hearty place .

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

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.
