Located an hour away from Dehra Dun Airport, this retreat, 3000 feet above the city of Rishikesh, is a great place to relax, detox, rejuvenate and be closer to heaven. There is nothing to do or there is lots to do, your choice. You may just enjoy the views from the rooms sipping ginger lemon juice or tea, the open deck outside the restaurant dining and sipping juices or coffee, as also the palace and green lawns while doing the morning business walk or the evening stroll and gaze at the numerous stars that are visible. Thats doing nothing.
If you choose to be active, you can do spas and massages, play golf on a small 6 hole but challenging course, have yoga tuition, attend spiritual lectures on Vedanta, attend exercise classes for abs, muscle development, back strengthening etc, do river rafting in the Ganges, visit various temples in Rishikesh and Haridwar, go for Ganga Aarti, visit Laxman Jhula and Ram Jhula…..one can go on. A month would be required to do all.
The Ananda has detox packages, even the non detox food was delicious, well appointed and luxurious rooms with excellent views, very very courteous staff right from Nikhil the manager to Rajesh, the golf cart driver. Its a place I would love to go every year for a fortnight, to do everything as also to do nothing. Its definitely on my list of Yearly Trips.
