Rishikesh, India


Perched atop a mountain overlooking the small town of Rishikesh, India, Ananda in the Himalayas arranges for guests to have an initial meeting with an Ayurvedic doctor who fires off a long list of questions to discover what his client’s unique internal make-up of “doshas” is. There are mainly three, Vata, Pitta, and Kapha, each with its own set of suggested and not suggested fruits, vegetables, and meats. The doctor then caucuses with the healers at the spa and the chefs to tailor a program that promises to balance the constellation of elements and forces in the soul and body. There’s also an elegant tea room to hang out in when not getting your doshas done over.
