Ananda in the Himalayas aims at harmonizing and rejuvenating the body, mind and soul. Once the residence of the Maharaja of Tehri-Garhwal, Ananda in the Himalayas is now a world class spa. Ananda offers 78 deluxe rooms, suites and villas that are minimalist and holistic in design, complemented by wooden floors, walk-in closets and well-lit marble bathrooms with sunken bathtubs that face the Himalayas.
While I found the guest rooms and common areas a bit outdated, the overall Ananda experience was exactly what I had hoped for. The service, grounds, villa pool, spa and restaurant were world class. I left there feeling rejuvenated and healthy and ready for the long journey home.
