If, like me, you are not into the spa experiences etc, try some walks in the hills. I can thoroughly recommend Chandan as a guide. (Ask for him at reception. He works at Paddle India.) I only had time for one relatively gentle 3hr trek, but it was really good.

Ananda. The name itself suggests that all you experience at Ananda is happiness and gaiety. This place is magical with its beatific gardens, rejuvenating yoga classes, amazing yoga and sinful food. The rooms are spacious and the bathrooms are very well designed.
