Ultimate relaxation may not be a beach after all. Take a different approach by visiting Ananda on your luxury, tailor-made holiday to India and you will return home feeling more invigorated, more positive, more relaxed and ready to resume a more charged life than ever before.

The Ananda secret? Simply a matter of feeding your body the curative, nourishing fuel it craves and treating your spirit to a refresher course in learning to live. The Ananda Spa has 24 treatment rooms and 80 specialist treatments that encompass the wisdom of Ayurvedic, Oriental and European systems, combining ancient practices with modern knowledge. And then, of course, there’s the fun and relaxation of finding yourself on nature walks, watching birds or taking a white water raft along a surging Himalayan torrent.
