We spent 5 days at Sanskriti and really enjoyed the massages,professionalism and attentiveness of the staff. We got the package which included 2 massages per day, 1 yoga class and ayurvedic consultations, food, and lodging. We got very good value for money. The food was good, very well presented and of course, very healthy. Each staff was so nice, considerate... More

I just came for meals as I had an appartment not far from here, but it was very good regarding the personnel, the service, the freshness of the food and the cleanliness. With naturally a magnificent view of the Ganga and the ghats from the restaurant's terrace.

The best part of the hotel for me was the location. Located very close to Ram Jhula it is ideal for a morning walk near the Ganges as well as fantastic view from the cafe. Unfortunately, the view from the room is obstructed by the temple in front of it. There are just 8 rooms in the hotel and are... More

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.
