THE SPIRIT OF ANANDA
THE SPIRIT OF TRAVEL
What does Ananda mean?
It translates as divine happiness, which is exactly our aim for you on an Ananda Holiday.
We believe in travelling to lift your spirit and feeling renewed. It’s travel that’s rewarding, strengthening and balancing.
Awaken your senses again; get back to what you love doing or have always wanted to try.
We create holidays with meaning and purpose that leave you feeling invigorated, refreshed and ready to take on the daily challenges back at home.
And that’s how Ananda came to be: we’re a team of Spanish travel specialists who want to show Spain’s creative, artistic and natural qualities through selected courses and retreats around the entire country.
Choose where you want to visit in Spain – be it mountains, seaside or cities – and travel with a goal in mind.

Discover a new side to Spain and a new side to you.
A new beginning. New pleasures, new loves. And a new love for you.
Ananda Holidays are for reconnecting with yourself.
CAME TO BE?
Ananda Holidays has been in the making for many years. After studying Tourism as a vocation and working in various travel agencies around Spain, I went to Rome to work for the official tourism organisation, promoting Spain as a destination to other Mediterranean countries. I then progressed into a travel agency in Greece, showing the Greek Islands to the American and European markets.
After the experience of doing typical mass tourism trips – where travellers ended up more tired than when they began without even seeing the authentic side to each destination – I decided I had to create something different. This meant something more personal, authentic and healthy; something that escapes the ‘iconic’ tourism and allows people to unwind, relax and reconnect with themselves.
During the last few years, I’ve balanced my work life with my two passions: yoga and travel. A period of time in the United Kingdom allowed me to get to know the English mentality better, and to understand first-hand what people most love about Spain, and to value it more.
In India I got to know the cradle of classical yoga, Rishikesh, where I visited the main ashrams, and was bowled over by the authenticity of Varanasi and Bodhgaya, as well as the perfection of the Taj Mahal – all of which were a dream come true for me.
In summary, everything I learned during these journeys and through meeting amazing people brought Ananda Holidays to life as a TRAVEL AGENCY SPECIALISING IN WELLNESS HOLIDAYS IN SPAIN. Our mission is to help you find authentic holidays where you can disconnect for a few days in order to connect with yourself.
Ananda Holidays’ philosophy is based on four pillars: contact with nature, yoga practice, excellent gastronomy and unique, original trips and accomodation, so that you can choose which one you most identify with.

SPAIN IS WELLNESS!
We are a Spanish team who are experts on Spain with extensive experience in the world of tourism.
In 2002, we started our tourism education, which continues to this day by travelling and trying things out, not only in Spain but also the rest of the world.
After many years in the business and lives filled with journeys to our destinations, we pride ourselves on knowing our holidays and destinations well, and being able to offer the best options.
Ananda holidays proposed us a choice of different accommodation for our holidays in the south of Spain; we stayed in a very beautiful apartment and normally we were eating out, since the food is super cheap, there was also a supermarket nearby and lots of tapas bar and restaurants. We didn’t rent a car because everything was very close to our apartment. A very positive experience!
We never thought we could enjoyed so much in a romantic escape with the original places they have found us! Stunning locations and amazing food for 1 week!
We are looking forward to have holidays again and hike the mountains of Andalucía as we did this year: great landscapes, good people, good weather, better food, funny lifestyle… Simply amazing!
Spain is a wonderful travel destination and Ananda Holidays a very helpful agency that simplifies all the process of finding and booking your holidays, no matter if you travel for solo, couple or family holidays. I am really happy to have booked with them.
The best Yoga holidays ever! I will definitely repeat with Ananda holidays!
Eva and her team was very helpful and they found the best place to enjoy our holidays: abundance of cycle paths, local restaurants all great, a lot of activities…we have enjoyed a lot this week!
Amazing the know-how of Spain they have and how easy is to find a great Yoga holiday with them! I won´t have to lose time searching next time!
The accommodation was so beautiful that we haven´t explored Galicia as much as we intended! P.s. Cíes islands was amazing, just like the Caribbean!
In Ananda holidays they were very kind and efficient, giving us great ideas and solutions to find us the best holidays ever! It has been a marvelous family holiday. We will travel again with them for sure!
Andalucía is a paradise for the senses! Thank you Ananda Holidays for making me discover it.
Our gastronomic week in Spain was unforgettable: we ate everyday lovely food: The famous paellas, tortilla Española, fresh fish is fantastic, superb seafood, tapas bar everywhere! Also sitting out watching the sunset is a must, and take some pictures. We will definitely visit Valencia and this area again!
Wow! The best experience ever is the Camino de Santiago. You have to try it! It will change your life!
The house and the location is perfect, particularly the wonderful garden right at the beach, so we enjoyed lovely walks straight from the house, the weather was very good…would come again!
I booked a Yoga holiday for the second time with the travel agency Ananda Holidays and they have once again exceeded our expectations, the teachers were superb the food delicious and the place very calm. We also have enjoyed eating out locally as well, people are patient despite our poor language skills. We loved to discover Canary islands and its amazing weather round the year and we are looking forward to come back soon!
It was the first time I was traveling solo and it was a very good experience, since you can meet a lot of new people everyday and you can also know yourself better, so I would recommend everybody to try travelling alone at least once.
We all loved to be in Spain and hope to come back soon-everything from the first emails with Ananda´s team was very easy and quickto find what we were looking for.
Galicia is the best foodie destination ever! We had great experiences and the seafood platters are mega and worth the money!
The holiday has been wonderful, the house was amazing, location, garden, the beach, the food in this area…we felt very privileged! Coming back soon!
