Cuisine at Ananda Rishikesh
Food is an integral part of rejuvenation and forms a quintessential element
of Ananda philosophy. The spa's basic guiding principle says - A spa should
not necessarily be looked at as a place to diet and lose weight but should
instead be a 'Way of Life'.
Our approach and philosophy on spa-food is a healthier alternative to regular
meals consumed while on leisure travel without having to go hungry. The basic
foundation is: low-calorie, high nutrition meals, exotically flavoured and
aesthetic in presentation for the guest to fully enjoy. Each menu has been
devised by crea.
