We stayed at this resort in June'12. It's a boutique resort with all its rooms decorated uniquely and in retro style. So it give you a feel of a heritage property. All the rooms are huge in size and toiletries are nice. It's situated right at the bank of ganga where you sit on the rocks and feet in the... More

It is a family hotel. The food is good.We enjoyed to sit at the Ganges. The wifi is not working very well. The rooms are very big. The way to the hotel is not good. Your driver should drive quite slowly.

Our family of six, including 3 senior citizens, made a last minute change in plan and spent a night at the glasshouse. We wished we had stayed at least another night-one of the best stays I have ever had. Beautifully done up rooms, great food and that oh so calming hum of the Ganga rushing by. You can't help but...

The place is situated very well near the ganga. And compared to other resorts in Rishikesh, it's really good. The ambiance, food, is very good. But I feel it's a bit over priced, especially the food. The arrangements are very nice; Absolutely neat and clean. It's right on the beach so access is really good. Security is not a concern.... More

Just spent a wonderful couple of days at the Glass House just chilling. It's that kind of place. People sitting on the rocks on the private beach and gazing at the fast-flowing river. People lounging on deck chairs and dozing with an open book fallen on their laps, lulled by the shushing sounds of the rushing water. People strolling along... More

We are frequent traveler to overseas destinations. We usually stays in remote properties and try to find out mostly in jungles. However after staying at Glasshouse our perception for domestic vacations has changed.

We went up to Rishikesh to visit Ganga-ma. We stayed at the tent Tamsa for 3 nights and had a great time. The little sitting area outside the tent is where you want to be perched to be mesmerized by the flowing Ganga, the sunset, and watch the passing raft traffic. Since we did not have four walls to keep... More

The location of the hotel is fantastic....right on the fast flowing Ganga. The rooms are interestingly and differently done up with breathtaking views. Service is good but food is quite mediocre. With no eateries close by one has no option but to eat on the premises.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Glasshouse on the Ganges, honours an extraordinary geographical site where the Ganga turns around and flows north towards its source. It is a magical natural spot. Set in a lychee and mango orchard of the Maharajas of Tehri Garhwal, with a garden of tropical plants, full of rare birds and butterflies, it has a sand beach of its own.After the maddening hustle of the crowds which throng the daily dip or the Kumbh Mela, there is no better haven of calm anywhere in the vicinity of Rishikesh. It is known for its serene and spiritual atmosphere. You can easily commute between the Glasshouse and the crowded pilgrimage spots without feeling the strain of its fascinating but continuous oppression of numbers–the calmest bank to watch the Kumbh! You can enjoy an evening Arti at the Parmarth Niketan Ashram. You could also visit the Ram Jhula and the Lakshman Jhula. ... more   less
