Spread over 100 acres of land only 20% of it is used for the rooms and everything else is pure blissful natural forests. Ananda is at about 3600 ft height overlooking...

I have been travelling to Ananda for many years now - if anything they have only improved over the years. Special compliments to the Chef for whipping up some extraordinarily meals during our last visit.

This was an incredible spa experience. The spa did everything for us, we felt like royalty. A car was waiting for us at the airport, and drove us safely to the hotel, which is a bit of a drive away, and up into the foothills. We were greeted at the hotel with a lovely ceremony and drink at check in....
