Anand at the Sutlej

It has cradled great civilizations and nurtured mankind and it’s faiths through trouble and strife. It runs like a vein, carrying life-water to the heart of this country, feeding it, nourishing it, fulfilling it. The river Sutlej symbolizes in deed, all how our country has grown, thrived and prospered.

And right on her banks, in the sacred town of Anandpur Sahib, has been created a retreat, a tranquil oasis, where you can summon your inner quiet and be one with God, nature and creation. The Anand @ The Sutlej is an ode to this mighty river, a token of gratitude for what it has meant for Punjab and the great Sikh faith.

Absolutely eco-friendly, beautifully appointed Premier Tented and Luxury Tented cottages with all the luxuries that you are accustomed to, a wholesome, hands-on experience of the culture, traditions, food and handicrafts of rural Punjab, and of course the omni-presence of the halo of the Anandpur Sahib Gurudwara- a veritable shrine of Sikhism. All this and more are ready for you to experience at this idyllic, thoughtfully created boutique resort.

Apart from being an experience in itself, Anand @ The Sutlej is also ideal as a lovely stopover if you are travelling to or from Himachal. But once you allow us to serve you, we dare say you’ll want to alter the rest of your itinerary and spend a little more time with us.

Red Coral welcomes you to experience Anand @ The Sutlej.

“…Haven of Calm”

Anand on the Sutlej is laid out in a very orderly fashion – almost like a military camp in the jungle! But the cottages are rather tasteful and take you to the sparse design world. One can wish that the river was more present but it flows quietly behind the wall. The vast green gardens are very refreshing.

“…The unique Beauty & Colour of a Lifetime””

Anand@The Satluj was a welcome retreat from busy and well-populated India. We arrived at this sanctuary made of lovely stone cottages placed around a spectacular array of trees and lots of green grass. Much of travel in India feels a little frantic – you worry about getting ill from the food, you don’t speak the language, you’ve never seen a crowd like this and you are never quite sure where to go.

All this ends when you reach the resort; it’s calm and peaceful. The meals are based in Indian cuisine but can (are are) tailored to your needs or wants. The food is fresh and divine. The water in the rooms is clean and new bottled water appears daily.

We stayed at Anand@The Satluj during the Hola Mohalla, the annual Sikh Festival filled with color and drama and the constant smell of the flavors of India. The town of Anandpur Sahib is an extremely important historical center of Sikhism. Our hosts made sure our every concern or want was addressed. Our daily ventures out into the city and festival were the journeys of a lifetime. Do not miss the Sikh Museum, it’s fascinating. I could not recommend a visit more. What a way to see see Punjab!

“…A Lovely Oasis in the countryside”

We stayed here 2 nights on our way from Pragpur to Shimla. There are several lovely temples in the area as well as a magnificent museum in Anandpur Sahib. The accommodation complex was new and well maintained and out on its own in the countryside. Our room was lovely. The staff were very helpful and helped us navigate the local countryside by both tractor and foot. We had breakfast lunch and dinner at the hotel and the food was amazing and tasty. We also were entertained by the owner who was very welcoming and helpful. It was a lovely spot and we thoroughly recommend it.
