The resort is set in beautiful gardens of 12.5 acres with stunning views of the hills and the Ganges. Built with local stone and wood this property resembles a Canadian Ski lodge rather than a typical Indian Himalayan Hotel.

The Taj Rishikesh Resort and Spa comprises 75 rooms some of which are set in the main building  and others spread over the property with stunning views of the hills and Ganges.
The property comprises a 20,000 sq feet wellness sanctuary with the Jiva Spa and a yoga pavilion.  Two swimming pools (one adult and one children’s) are located close to the spa and overlooking the path down to the Ganges. 
The grounds have been beautifully landscaped and with a choice of 4 restaurants using locally sourced organic food this is a wonderful place to unwind and enjoy the natural beauty of India.
