First out the hotel is no longer part of the famous Kerala Ayurvedic chain Kairali which would have justified its price. Secondly it is a modified ashram with rooms still bearing a very ashram like room. Not what you would expect from one of the more expensive places in Rishikesh. The terrace and the restaurant are certainly a highlight -... More

If you are planning to go to Rishikesh, and stay there for some time - Sanskriti is definitely a place to stay! We stayed there for 5 nights and it really made our trip safe, comfortable and definitely unforgettable! Location is good, view from the balcony is amazing! I loved spending my mornings and enjoying my breakfasts with a view... More

The rooms are clean and well-maintained. The rooms are named after towns through which Ganga flows. The view from the café is great. Breakfast is not a buffet but food tastes good.

The initial impression about the hotel was good based on the location. However things turned worse while checking out when the lady receptionist charged us double. She lied about the charges of the yoga class and not once even we asked her thrice and she lied about the rate. While checking out we got a double bill. Thank god we... More

Located in the heart of Rishikesh, with a lot of hustle bustle around, it provides an ideal glimpse into life on the Indian roads and in Indian towns. The terrace on top is beautiful to sit and just look at the river and mountains and the life going by. A bit noisy but what else can be expected in such... More

Two good things only: located in the center of a village, and walking distance to the Ganges river. Unsanitary kitchen practices, I fell ill many times due to that. Only one honest, sincere and polite person on staff. Even the characters in the head office, including owners, dishonest, don't have a clue about decent customer service, nor do they care... More

It is a very neat clean and comfortable place. The food at the cafe is really good. We visit it every time we are in Rishikesh. Stayed there for a couple of days. Enjoyed the stay. Since it is very close to Ramjhula and on the main road into ramjhula, there is a lot of noise starting from early morning... More

This is an excellent retreat on the edge of the Ganges for rejuvenation. I stayed for a week and felt thoroughly invigorated. The accommodation is basic but has everything required for a comfortable stay. The food is fresh and cooked to order, all vegetarian. The staff are very helpful, particularly the manager. The Ayurvedic Doctor is the most caring Doctor... More

My stay at Sanskritti Retreat was absolutely blissful: the daily treatment was phenomenal, the food was delicious (not to mention healthy and well catered to vegans and vegetarians alike), and the staff were all so friendly and lovely. It is the perfect place to slow down from the fast pace of traveling in India, whilst still being in an incredible... More
