The Spiritual Retreat hotel Aananda didn’t get its name by coincidence. Aananda meaning “Bliss” comes from an ancient Indic language of India. At “Bliss”, the staff make it their personal venture that each customer has a blissful and cultural vacation. The hotel is located near the Banks of Holy River Ganga. Ganga is situated in the town of Haridwar. A true spiritual destination, the guestrooms give view upon the Ganga river and the rooftop upon the Shivalik Range of Himalayas. Surrounded by temples and Ashrams which are religious retreats of Hindus, the city’s spellbinding aura shines light on the darkest of times.
