Nestled in the Himalayas is Ananda, a world class destination spa dedicated to restore and rejuvenate body, mind and soul. Once the residence of Maharaja of Tehri-Garhwal, Ananda is the ultimate escape not just from travel but from everyday life to the spiritual.

The 24,000 square foot spa offers an extensive menu of over 79 body and beauty treatments, integrating the traditional Indian systems of Ayurveda with the more contemporary Western spa approach. Located just 260 km north of New Delhi, Ananda is easily accessible by road, rail and air.
