Ayurveda resort Ananda

This award-winning luxury destination is located in the foothills of the Himalayas in Northern India. A unique spa resort spreads out over 100 acres surrounded by unique countryside, with an unforgettable view of the spiritual town of Rishikesh and the valley of the River Ganges.

Ananda is one of the top Ayurveda resorts in India, including traditional Ayurveda, Yoga and Vedanta. This traditional form of exercise and teaching is enriched by international experience in the field of wellness and fitness and guides visitors, accompanied by healthy organic cuisine, to the luxurious goal of balance and harmonised energy.

A natural path to opening a resort

The founder and executive director of the hotel Ashok Khanna was born into an important family of hoteliers, so it is no surprise to anyone which direction he took when he grew up.

When the Indian economy opened up to the world, Khanna was already at an age when he had experience under his belt from the Oberoi Group hotel network. A lot of competition started to spring up in India in all sectors and levels of stress rose. People started to lose their life balance. Ashok Khanna realised that apart from a luxury hotel and top-class services, people would also need space and a place where they could find the path to their own personal health and mental rejuvenation. So in 1989, he started to establish the Ananda Hotel, the founder of which travelled all over India until he found a place right here, in the foothills of the Himalayas, the birthplace of the yogi.

Healing of the body and calming of the mind

It was always the intention to create a place which will operate as a holistic wellness centre for the body and mind. One very important element is the cuisine, as our ancestors already believed that what we eat and the way we eat it contributes towards a healthy life. The catering concept was adapted to suit this and local cuisine offers Ayurvedic foods.

The yoga practised in Ananda is an absolutely pure and traditional form based on the roots of hatha yoga and exercise is individually adapted to suit the requirements of guests.

Specialist seminars and enriching meetings

Ananda offers special seminars and private visits to masters of learning in various fields. These are therapists, doctors and healers from all over the world, who come to the resort to share their knowledge and findings. Special programmes with the assistance of specialist staff lead to a healthy and richer life for guests.

The resort which helps guests on the path to personal health opened in 2001. Since that time, it has won many awards and acclaim the world over.
