In the heart of quaint Rishikesh, rests a boutique property quite unlike any other. Nestled snugly on the banks of the languid River Ganges, Hotel Ganga Kinare is a harmonious mosaic of rustic charm and modernity. The only hotel In Rishikesh that is located right on the banks of the holy river, it also boasts of having the only private riverside bank in the region.
Rishikesh is a land where spirituality and Mother Nature form a heady concoction, and Hotel Ganga Kinare is a true embodiment of this magic. Apart from being right on the banks of the majestic Ganges, the hotel also overlooks the Rajaji National Park, one of North India's largest parks and a melting pot of flora and fauna. A serpentine esplanade running alongside the hotel - "Aastha Path" (Path of Faith), is the ideal way for guests to stroll alongside the sinuous river, soak in the sight of the mountains and revel in the sheer verdancy of the surroundings.
The hotel offers experiences to suit every palette - whether its white water rafting on the tumultuous river for adventure sport enthusiasts, special Aarti/Puja and a holy dip by the private ghat for our pious guests, Yoga sessions and spa massages to appease the body, or just letting go while you sit by the bank with your favourite book.
The hotel houses 38 rooms, each touched with a flavour of the local heritage. Our newly launched Presidetial suites – christened Lotus Suites – are a marvel. All our rooms have an enthralling view of the river and our guests can enjoy the tranquility of open air terraces with a view of the Ganges and the enveloping mountains.
We have our own in-house Yoga Gurus who conduct complementary morning Yoga classes next to the river for our guests. Our aesthetic Ayurvedic Spa "Ayur Ganga" specialises in several Ayurvedic treatments and massages. The hotel's multi-cuisine restaurant Holywater, overlooks the river, Rajaji National Park and the Shivalik range. We also organise many other activities such as kayaking, trekking, boating, bird watching, and jungle safaris.
Built in 1989 in the city of Rishikesh, often touted as 'the world capital of Yoga', the resort has played host to the coveted 'International Yoga Week' nine times in recent years and continues to be a pivotal space for Yogic gurus to impart their teachings. This year, Hotel Ganga Kinare will recreate history for the fourteenth time, and will play host to the International Yoga Festival 2015.
