Ananda Spa

Soothe your senses with serene silences at Ananda. Situated 260km away from Delhi, set amongst the 100 acres of virgin forest, 3000 feet above the sea level and soaring over the calming counters of the Ganges, nestles South Asia’s first resort and spa. Once the residence of the Maharaja of Tehri Garhwal, the palace and precincts now invite the leisure, lifestyle and business traveller. A legendary fount of religion and spirituality, Narendra Nagar, inspired the creation of the santurary for the Maharaja. The Palace itself was built at various stages for different reasons of hospitality. In 1910 an annexe was added to commemorate the arrival of the British viceroy, who often visited and this new annexe served to house his entourage. The annexe which currently hosts the Billiard Room, the Tea Lounge, the Library, the Viceregal Suite and other facilities, boasts of having hosted some of the most extravagant occasions for both royalty and nobility, who were frequent visitors here. Orchestras played in the ballroom, political dignitaries came up for a breath of cool air and to gaze at the stars.

Spiritual heads like Ma Anandamayi and Swami Sivananda lent the palace an aura of peace, tranquillity and learning when they blessed it with their presence. They had disciples who flocked from near and far to hear their preachings. Experience the lifestyle of royalty. Wander through the palatial sweep of gardens, tarry at the Tea Lounge and holistically relax your body, mind and soul with a full range of spa treatments and extensive selection of therapies.

Learn about Ayurveda

Drawing from ancient Indian healing wisdom Ayurveda or Ayurvedic medicine is an ancient system of health care that is native to the Indian subcontinent. Known as the ‘mother of medicine’ since Ayurvedic principles have influenced the development of Chinese, Arabic, Greek and Roman schools of medical thought, modern western medicine has adopted some Ayurvedic concepts, as well as more recently developed therapies such as aromatherapy, homeopathy and naturopathy. Ayurveda is a complete way of life. It is not only about treating sickness – it is based on preventing disease and enhancing health, longevity and vitality. Ayurveda aims to achieve harmony and balance. This is attained without drugs or invasive treatments. Diet, meditation, gentle exercise such as yoga, herbal medicines and physical therapies (such as massage) are the main methods employed.

History of Ayurveda - Ayurveda evolved around 600 BC in India and was founded upon a medicinal approach of preventing body ailments, whilst curing them. Ayurveda today is a unique, indispensable branch of medicine - a complete naturalistic system that depends on the diagnosis of your body’s humours - vata, pitta and kapha - to achieve the right balance. Ayurveda believes in the treatment of not just the affected part, but the individual as a whole, ensuring it is the natural way to a refreshed soul, free of toxic imbalances - a key to better health and resistance to disease.
