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 & soaring over the calming counters of the Ganges, nestles South Asia’s first resort & spa. One time the residence of the Maharaja of Tehri Garhwal, the palace & precincts now invite the leisure, lifestyle & business traveller. A legendary font of religion & spirituality, Narendra Nagar, inspired the creation of the sanctuary 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 & this new annexe served to house his entourage. The annexe which currently hosts the Billiard Room, the Tea Lounge, the Library, the Viceregal Suite & other facilities, boasts of having hosted some of the most extravagant occasions for both royalty & nobility, who were frequent visitors here. Orchestras played in the ballroom, political dignitaries came up for a breath of cold air & 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 listen to 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 an extensive choice of therapies. Overnight – Ananda Spa.
