Nestled snugly on the banks of a tranquil River Ganges, Ganga Kinare - A Riverside Boutique Hotel is a charming retreat in the sanctum of Rishikesh, a land where spirituality and Mother Nature blend into a heady concoction. The only hotel resort in Rishikesh built right on the banks of the Ganges, Ganga Kinare overlooks the Rajaji National Park, one of North India's expansive sanctuaries and a melting pot of diverse flora and fauna. The resort boasts of a waterside esplanade beside the sinuous river, where one can soak in the sight of the mountains and revel in the sheer verdancy of it all. The resort houses 38 contemporary river facing rooms, each subtly touched with a flavour of tradition and local culture. Every room of the hotel presents an enthralling view of the interplay between the woods, the great Ganges and the Shivalik hills in the background. In addition, a modernistic conference hall can host up to 120 delegates. The resort can enhance an overall experience through enticing activities including safaris, white water rafting, camping, trekking, biking, nature walks, bird watching, boating, sky gazing, yoga and meditation, and Ayurvedic spa treatments. The hotel has hosted the International Yoga week on many an occasion and its guest list includes dignitaries like Mr Anil Kapoor (famoun Bollywood and Holywood Actor), Ms Lisa Ray (famous model and actor), Mr Rahul Gandhi (Gen Secy, Indian National Congress), Mr Lal Krishna Advani (ex-Home Minister and Deputy Prime Minster), Padam Shri BKS Iyengar, Mr. Moti Lal Vora (ex- Governor U.P.), Mr Ramanand Sagar (producer and director, Ramayana - a renowned television serial), Mr Ghulam Nabi Azad (ex-Tourism Minister, Govt of India), Dr. Karan Singh (ex-Union Cabinet Minister), Mrs Hema Malini (renowned film actress), Ms Yukta Mookhey (ex-Miss World), Pandit Jasraj (renowned Indian classical musician) among international heads of states, ambassadors, artists, celebrities, religious leaders and other VIPs.

Which room has better view premium or super deluxe?
The Premium rooms have a better view but the Delux rooms are also very good. Whether you stay in the Premium or Delux room, the best view is at the back of the hotel, the balconies gives you a breathtaking view of a huge section of the holy Ganges River in all its glory. I stood on the balcony of the first floor and captured unbelievable photographs of sunrise over the Ganges. It was amazing.
