Guest reviews for Ananda in the Himalayas

5 out of 5

Great spa

Pros: Free Internet, Quiet
The massages are really terrific. The hotel offers packages but individual ones cost about $80-$100 for 55 minutes. Food is varied and fresh. Activities are limited and a long stay can perhaps get a bit monotonous.

Blissfull feeling at Ananda - World's Best

During my recent visit to Ananda near Rishikesh, I had one of the most amazing experiences ever. This was my first visit to this spa, while I am a regular visitor to the their other wonderful hotels called Ista Hotels. I can assure you that my experince was breathtaking right from the movement I stepped out of my car at the Airport, where some from the hotel was there to receive me and make me comfortable in the vehicle assigned to take me to the hotel. It took about 50 minutes to reach the hotel where I was greeted with Malas and Ginger Infusion that was amazing welcome. After a brief introduction I was escorted to a wonderful Valley View room with an awesome Ganga view. I proceeded to the spa and booked a Sweedish massage after my lunch, which I thoroughly enjoyed and came out wanting more. My wife was equally rejuvenated with the Ananda Touch after which we went for the Golf and Meditation which kept us entertained throughout the day. The day finished with an amazing meal at the deck under the beautiful stars. Next morning we went for yoga followed by a hearty breakfast and relaxation by the pool. Unfortunately my visit for 1 night was too short. Thus I have decided to come back again for atleast a week. I have learnt that some 7 nights packages are all inclusive that offer spa, meals as oart of the package and that is what we will book for our next visit.
