Ananda in the Himalayas
Built in 1910, deep in Tehri Garhwal, in the heart of a majestic Himalayan mountain range dwells Ananda in the Himalayas. Housed among the mythological Sal forest with views of the Ganga drifting in the distance, Ananda provides a spiritual retreat, committed to the traditional Indian practices of Yoga, Ayurveda, and Vendanta, creating harmony between mind, body, and soul, and complementing the ethereal natural beauty that surrounds this serene area.
Ananda’s luxurious reception area is masqueraded by the brilliant disguise of the palace of the Maharaja of Tehri Garhwal. In the midst of the Maharaja’s rule, the ambrosial Viceregal Palace hosted some of India’s many distinguished guests, and in the 1960s, Rishikesh and the surrounding areas gained notoriety when The Beatles and their famous guru Maharashi Mahesh Yogi graced the noble halls.
With a traditional aarti welcome and a refreshing spa signature beverage provided at arrival, guests are instantaneously transported back to a time of palatial radiance and noble splendor—an impression that continues throughout the tranquil and healing stay at Ananda.
Ananda in the Himalayas, a charter member of Historic Hotels Worldwide since 2011, dates back to 1910.
