We have been to the place many times and experienced the calm and soul searching atmosphere at the resort. Luxurious rooms, mouthwatering cuisine and majestic views of holy river Ganga, mountains, and valleys. The yoga classes, the spiritual lectures and the dance program of children, all very exciting. And above all the spa experience, very refreshing and detoxifying. Wonderful memories.

Situated amidst the foothills of the Himalayas with picturesque views of the holy Ganges and Rishikesh lies the hidden lap of luxury known as Ananda. This resort and spa leaves positive lasting impressions all the way from the staff, rooms, spa facilities, and food. It may take someone who is used to fast paced "western" life a day or two...

Visited Ananda for few days last year. Most painful part of the journey was the 1 hour long drive after you reach Hariwar. We loved the property. Great food, good SPA, very friendly staff and amazing views. Only flip side is that they don't serve booze. Highly recommended for couples !

"Up above the sky so high, How I wonder where you are!"

Dear Guest, Namaskar! Thank you for staying with us at Ananda. As we had discussed at the time of your check out, rates at hotels are based on various considerations such as lengths of stay, season, advance purchases, pre-purchases and of course geographies. Corporate hotels base their rates on volumes from a company. Therefore it is not unusual for hotels...
