Northern India, India
Set in the foothills of the tranquil Himalayas, overlooking the Ganges River, Ananda Spa welcomes guests to an extraordinary retreat of spiritual enlightenment, where you’ll discover the union of the mind, body, and soul.
This is not just a retreat that will leave you to marvel at the incredible surroundings of the graceful Sal forests (although those are breathtaking on their own), but Ananda will redefine the standard lifestyle through the introduction of time-honoured Indian wellness regimes such as Ayurveda, Yoga, and Vedanta.
Guests can partake in a regular schedule of lectures, classes, and activities that include rafting, golf, cooking classes, meditation, mountain hikes, and safari excursions in the wilderness. And at the end of each day, retire to spacious well-appointed rooms with picture-perfect views and design that expertly blends nature, style, and elegance into one serene form.
Lightfoot Travel provides tailor-made itineraries that include daily tours and excursions, restaurant recommendations and bookings, and can incorporate Northern India into a greater India holiday.
