Day 1: Delhi to Narendra Nagar

Arrive in Delhi before connecting with your mid-afternoon flight to Dehradun, Uttarakhand’s valleyed capital. On arrival, you’ll be transferred south-east – and upwards – towards the Ganges: specifically to Ananda In The Himalayas.

Day 2: Narendra Nagar

Located in the hills above Rishikesh, you’ll wake up at one of India’s premier spa retreats – where year-round temperatures remain between 15 and 25 degrees. Today is kept entirely at leisure, free for you to indulge in one of the 80+ treatments. Overnight at Ananda In The Himalayas.

Day 3: Narendra Nagar

With a range of personalised beauty and body treatments to choose from, take advantage of another rejuvenating day in the 24,000-square-foot spa: one that blends time-honoured traditions with state-of-the-art facilities. Overnight at Ananda In The Himalayas.

Day 4: Narendra Nagar

Spend today entirely at leisure – perhaps by going on a pre-organised nature walk, visiting the nearby Kunjapuri Temple or whiling away the afternoon in Rishikesh, the ‘Yoga Capital of the World’ once frequented by The Beatles. Overnight at Ananda In The Himalayas.

Day 5: Narendra Nagar

The spa is today’s obvious destination on what’s another day of leisure. From de-stressing and detoxing to anti-ageing and cleansing, your dedicated therapist will work to achieve your tailor-made wellness goals in the most relaxed environment imaginable. Overnight at Ananda In The Himalayas.

Day 6: Narendra Nagar

From traditional Ayurveda and yoga practices to modern western treatments, your penultimate full day at Ananda is once again spent at leisure. If you fancy heading out, there’s always the pull of the River Ganges, namely Haridwar’s spiritual aarti ceremonies. Overnight at Ananda In The Himalayas.

Day 7: Narendra Nagar

Your last full day in the Himalayan foothills coincides with the culmination of your treatment with Ananda’s expert physicians, therapists and nutritionists. Not only will your wellbeing be enhanced, but you’ll also have a working knowledge of ancient spa practices. Overnight at Ananda In The Himalayas.

Transfer to Dehradun for your short flight to Delhi. On arrival, transfer to the international terminal for your return flight home.
