Dreams in India
Residing in the former Palace Estate of the Maharaja of Tehri-Garhwal, Ananda is one of the world’s most renowned holistic wellness retreats. Luxurious rooms and suites sit within 100 acres of gardens and forest to create an environment of harmony and comfort in the Himalayan foothills of North India.
Humbled by its majestic mountain backdrop, the Viceregal Palace in which Ananda finds its home is a sanctuary where elegance blends beautifully with serenity. Outside the retreat is a rich and dramatic Himalayan landscape that complements the effortless luxury inside, creating a perfect wellness destination.
Wellness journeys and activities are available all year at Ananda, regardless of the weather. April to June, and September to October offer the best balance of sunny days and pleasant temperatures. June to September is monsoon season, though persistent rains are rare. Visitors between December to February are advised to pack for cooler nights.
