Itinerary – Pampered Divas Package
Day 1-2 – Delhi
Arrive in Delhi. After clearing immigration and custom formalities you are met in the arrival hall by our representative and transferred to your hotel. Your accommodations in New Delhi will be at the beautiful, colonial style Imperial Grand Heritage Hotel, a luxury hotel with a unique blend of old architecture and modern conveniences with its spacious guest rooms amidst opulent and elegant surroundings.
At 9:30 AM you will meet your guide in the lobby of the hotel (depending on your arrival time you may be able to start your sightseeing activities in Delhi the afternoon of Day 1).
You will start off visiting the walled city of Old Delhi. Take a guided walk through the narrow lanes of the 300 year old Chandni Chowk market. You will view an extraordinary variety of items – silks, silver, jewelry, aromatic spices, leather, fruit and vegetables, apothecaries selling their home grown medicinal items, and roadside dentists displaying their bizarre array of equipment. Disembark at the Jama Masjid, believed to be the largest mosque in India and which was Shah Jahan’s last architectural legacy.
Explore India’s diverse and mouthwatering street food, from the 200 year “Ghantewala” sweet shop, to the “Paratha Wallah Galli”, the street that specializes in the flat bread, stuffed with every conceivable ingredient.
Tour historical monuments, temples and mosques of past Emperors, Kings and Princes. Return to your hotel, stopping at Raj Ghat, a simple yet stunning memorial to Mahatma Gandhi.
Day 3 – Delhi/Dehra Dun
You will be transferred to the airport where you will depart for Dehra Dun for the next phase of your journey to Ananda in the Himalayas.
Day 4 to 7 – Ananda
These days are given over to the spa and lifestyle activities, 162 miles north of New Delhi, at the Palace and estate of the Maharajah of Tehri-Garhwal, housing the deluxe Destination Spa, Ananda in the Himalayas.
You can also go on hikes and nature walks to picnic spots with spectacular views of the Himalayas. Walks range from 1 to 4 hours depending on your interest level. You can choose to visit ginger farms, and local villages, enjoying stunning vistas of Rishikesh and the Ganga river along the route, or you can just relax amongst the still and serene surroundings.
You will also have the opportunity to have your horoscope made; have your hands and feet painted with Mehendi; learn Ayurvedic cooking with Ananda’s Executive chef; and have your aura cleansed in a personal “hawan” or fire ceremony.
You will also take some time to visit the holy town of Rishikesh and watch the evening “aarti” ceremony, when priests perform a ritual to put the river gods to sleep and to ward off any evils. Accompanied by symbols, chanting and lamps, it is a mesmerizing ceremony.
Enjoy Ananda’s acclaimed Ayurvedic cuisine specially designed for you based on the recommendations of your personalized consultant.
Day 8 – Ananda/Delhi
After lunch you will transfer to the airport, returning to Delhi where you will be provided an early supper (location TBD) before leaving for the airport and your flight home.
We hope you had a wonderful and memorable time – have a safe trip back and be sure to join us on another one of our trips in the near future.
