Himalayan spa

Our verdict:

For a union of mind, body and soul, a spa honeymoon at Ananda is great value with many treatments and activities included. Book a private pool villa or save a little and stay in a valley view room to soak up views of the Ganges from your bed and bath. Visit Rishikesh at nightfall for Ganga Aarati (lighting of lamps and chanting).

Located on the Royal estate of the Maharaja of Tehri-Garhwal, Ananda in the Himalayas is the perfect spiritual haven.

Situated close to the holy cities of Rishikesh and Hardwar, it is surrounded by the Himalayan foothills, lush Sal forests and the holy river Ganges.

Ananda is the ideal place for exploring the innerscapes of the mind, body and soul and to relax and rejuvenate through the ancient sciences of Ayurveda and Yoga and a choice of pampering therapies in their outstanding spa.
