Nestled in the foothills of the Himalayas in India’s spiritual heartland, Ananda in the Himalayas overlooks the sacred Ganges river and holy town of Rishikesh. Offering guests an emotional, spiritual and physical overhaul, the revered retreat should be on every serious wellness travellers wish list—and one lucky winner will tick it off with Vogue and Compare Retreats yoga retreat giveaway.
The award-winning luxury wellness retreat has been recognised over the years by publications like Conde Nast, Travel+Leisure, and Asia Spa, and is renowned worldwide for its Ayurvedic and yoga programmes.
Giving guests the chance to deeply explore traditional yoga methods and learn the difference from your Asanas and Pranayama, Compare Retreats has partnered with Vogue Hong Kong to send one lucky yogi into the Himalayas on the luxury wellness experiences of a lifetime.
Situated in a palace estate, Ananda’s rooms, suites and villas are elegantly designed in keeping with the colonial architectural style, offering panoramic views of the palace itself or the valley below. Integrating ayurvedic theories into every aspect of the resort, the cuisine and spa treatments follow these ancient principles, giving guests a holistic experience throughout their stay.
Each guest follows a bespoke programme, tailored to their wellness goals and needs through personal consultations with Ananda’s expert staff. Yogis of all levels are welcome, though having some yoga experience will help guests to get the most out of this unique experience.
The prize includes six nights in a Deluxe Palace View Room with all-inclusive wellness meals (breakfast, lunch and dinner), morning yoga, afternoon meditation, a trip to Sivananda Ashram and Ganga Aarti, a schedule of wellness talks and discussions, as well as a Neti cleansing treatment and Ayurvedic therapy session.
