Ananda Spa Resort Rishikesh
Introduction

Ananda Rejuvenation Spa offers a serene and truly unforgettable experience of pure pampering and relaxation in exquisitely beautiful surroundings of the Himalayan foothills.


Why this is one of our favorite places to stay
  • ItÆs the total picture: the stunning location, the spacious rooms with beautiful views and your private butler, the healthy but very tasty food, yoga in the morning, the list of treatments to choose from...
  • Ananda is luxurious without being formal (most guests wander around in the fantastically comfortable and rather flattering white Indian pyjamas provided in the rooms)
  • After check in you change your clothes for the Kurta, consisting of a long shirt and white trousers, and you keep them on until check out. So you can pack very light!
  • For an aroma bath in the privacy of your room you just have to call housekeeping. Make a choice of one of the aroma's, turn on some music and dream away
