With festive season and holidays on the horizon, those seeking a getaway with a difference might be advised to consider one with health benefits.

The principles of Ayurveda are scientific, based around the five elements of space, air, fire, water, and earth and the doshas or energies which govern the state of health – vata which represents the body in motion such as heart beat, respiration, and muscle and nerve movements; pitta which regulates the body metabolism and governs digestion and body temperatures, and kapha, the strength and stamina of the body from bones and muscles through to the skin.
Ayurveda at Ananda is a personalized programme that includes stimulating and purifying therapies, daily yoga and meditation, and a Dosha-specific Ayurvedic diet to help reduce stress, improve health, and address common ailments or simply delay the aging process

The Ananda menu places emphasis on the importance of a balanced diet.

The rejuvenation diet at Ananda includes all six tastes, and macronutrients like protein, fat, and carbohydrates in each meal.
