Healing Focus


Ananda In The Himalayas is currently closed due to the COVID-19.

It is hard to put the Ananda experience into words, but what it comes down to is: you will feel like a king or queen in the maharadja palace, immerse into ancient Indian healing practices, experience an environment and energy that is nowhere else to be found, become part of the warm-hearted Ananda family and leave balanced, energetic – and deeply enchanted.

Ananda in the Himalayas offers the perfect marriage of a profoundly beautiful and spiritual location with a well-balanced program of treatments and practices, in a luxurious resort. It has earned a reputation as one of the world’s best health and wellbeing retreats – it won Conde Nast Traveler2019 Reader’s Choice Award for Top Destination Spa Resort in the World – and the accolades are well deserved.

Inspired by a deep understanding of ancient Indian traditions, Ananda Spa employs qualified Ayurveda doctors and therapists to administer personalized treatments ranging from therapeutic massage to toxic elimination; experienced Bihar School yoga teachers will design your yoga and meditation program; and there are daily interactive talks from Vedanta disciples and leading international masters. Ananda in the Himalayas is a total experience for anyone wishing to heal, cleanse, relax and revitalize, restore balance, and embrace holistic wellbeing.

„Ananda Spa combines traditional Ayurveda, Yoga and Vedanta with international wellbeing experiences, fitness and healthy organic cuisine to restore balance and harmonize energy.“

At Ananda in the Himalayas, you’ll live like royalty in the splendor of the Viceregal Palace, once home to the Maharajah of Tehri Garhwal. Here, beautiful gardens give way to breathtaking views of the mountains, the ancient spiritual city of Rishikesh, and the sacred Ganges River. Behind the magnificent façade, old-world charm lives on in the Viceregal Tea Lounge or the Maharajah’s billiard room, while the rooms, suites, villas and spa offer soothing modern luxury.

Set on 100 acres of lush grounds, this beautiful, tranquil resort reimagines the Indian tradition of retreating to the peace and quiet of the mountains to find a new sense of harmony and balance. Admire the views from the restaurant’s Tree Top deck, sip a refreshing drink beside the pool, or enjoy private dining in one of the many spectacular locations around the resort, while caring staff attends to your every need. Ananda in the Himalayas is the perfect antidote to the stresses of modern life.
