Very sad to see the hotel has burned down. Very sad. I spent a week at Sanskriti in May 2011. Very happy time. The view from the restaurant balcony was superb. Great organic fresh juices. Good food. So sad it's gone.

Consumed by fire in July of 2012. Sanskriti is sadly no more. I was there in November 2010 and we would eat there most days. We are very sad that it is no more. There is a restaurant/cafe called Health Cafe run by ex Sanskriti staff. Over the Ram Jhula bridge and up passed the large covered restaurants and up... More

RoamwithOm.com my private tour of the India experience booked a few days here. I love how it is adjacent to the Sivananda shrine where you can chant and experience the real Arati in Rishikesh. Low key but powerful vibes! The cafe and balcony are great to hang. All things can improve and the owners are very conscientious about improving the... More

Fairly decent rooms and basic bathroom but definitely better than most it seems in this holy city. Perfect views from the rooms (only 5-6) so nice and intimate and owner was very friendly and humble and welcoming as were the restaurant staff. You can arrange treatments and personalised yoga here so you don't have to go too far to find... More

We were two families who stayed for 3 days at this place. The cleanliness, staff and overall ambience is great. The place scores 100% on location being right next to the Ram -Jhoola providing easy access to the evening Aarti. Also the bazaar is just below the rooms, so one can stroll and buy stuff or take a boat ride... More

We were a group of 4 from UK who visited Sanskriti in March 2012. We originally intended to stay for two nights but having visited the premises prior to our stay we decided against this, as the living facilities did not meet our expectations. Instead we thought we would use the day spa facilities. We prearranged with the reception to... More
