Your Recommended Ultimate Treatment:
The authenticity and our commitment to this ancient life system are evident in the use of age-old powders; oils, vessels, wooden beds, treatment rituals and qualified therapists trained in traditional Ayurvedic schools. Ananda Ayurvedic Therapy programmes are prescribed by the resident physician after a detailed consultation, which specifies daily routines, diet and wellness activities.
A complete range of authentic Ayurvedic treatments are available at Ananda, each addressing a specific aspect of mental, and physical well-being. Abhyanga, Pizhichil, Choornaswedan, Sirodhara and lots more.
Wonderful sprawling property on the slope of a hill, thoughtfully done up. Great food that keeps one spritely and cheerful all day, amazing “wellness” menu at all meals. The yoga classes in the morning (7.15 am) helped – excellent instructor and great venue (big wooden floored hall at the palace annex). Made it a point to ignore the electric carts and instead walked up to the palace at least once a day.
Rooms are spacious 5-star quality with a balcony. The lower level faces the garden – The green view can be a lot more soothing in winter compared to the valley view rooms, particularly if the valley remains shrouded in mist.
Staff was wonderfully and uniformly caring.
