We booked the Sanskriti for a group retreat and could not have been more pleased. Rooms were very nice even by our western sensibilities. The ayurvedic treatments were excellent and affordable relative to the level of quality (you can get cheaper, but you get what you pay for). Staff was ALWAYS smiling and helpful. But the quality of the food... More

Kairali, as the name needs no introduction... This was the best ayurvedic massage I had. The staff has very good knowledge of various therapies and guided me well. Manager Krishna is very courteous. I wish I could stay for a few days and experience their package. Will definitely go again for the 3 days I am in Rishikesh. Three cheers... More

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
