The Roseate Ganges invites guests back to nature, requesting they stow away their mobile phones and gadgets during their stay to allow themselves the chance to fully experience the tranquillity of their surrounds
Think Indian luxury hotels are all about traditional architecture and opulent interiors? Think again. At The Roseate Ganges in Rishikesh you’ll find imaginative, modern and sculptural design, and, chances are, some blissful peace and quiet, too.
Located in the yoga capital of the world, Rishikesh, The Roseate Ganges invites its guests back to nature, offering clean, uncluttered and minimal design amid untouched nature that evokes a sense of peace and contemplation. And if you still don’t trust yourself to take your eyes off your smartphone, the retreat requests guests stow away their mobile phones and gadgets during their stay, to allow themselves the chance to fully experience the tranquillity of their surrounds.
Perched on the banks of the river Ganges in Rishikesh, the retreat features 16 well-appointed villas, each opening to a private balcony overlooking the Ganga valley and the forest. A natural colour palette complementing the natural surroundings is on show, with a palpable sense of minimalism abounding.
Signature dining options based on the local cuisine are specially curated for guests, with meals crafted in consultation with each guest to ensure their personal preferences are met.
A comprehensive menu of spa and yoga services at The Aheli Spa is a highlight of the retreat, focusing on absolute relaxation and rejuvenation. Treatments integrate the ancient wisdom of Ayurveda with contemporary international practices and utilise pure, natural products as well as Olivier Claire and Pevonia products.
Nature walks, treks, yoga, meditation, the revered Ganga Arti, river rafting, as well as visits to organic farms, Rajaji National Park and the Beatles Ashram are also available.
A temperature-controlled infinity swimming pool overlooks the surrounding valley, and to top it all off, guests can enjoy access to the private white sand beach next to the pristine waters of the Ganges, which gently flows by the retreat.
