My friends and I decided to leave on a Saturday morning for Rishikesh for a swift weekend getaway. We had heard of Ganga Kinare and had booked ourselves beforehand. Despite the decent things we had heard about the Resort, it still pleasantly surprised us! Just an hour\'s drive from the Hardwar railway station, the resort\'s simplistic yet charming facade enticed us in. We were greeted by friendly staff and were immediately struck by the views from the resort. It is bang on the banks of the majestic river Ganges and has an enthralling view of the Rajaji National Park, a boat ride to which was eventually arranged by the resort! The resort\'s gardens almost kiss the river, and one can walk on the Resort\'s private riverside esplanade to soak in the sight, sound and smell of Mother Nature. Our rooms were all riverfacing (in fact we later found out that all rooms in the Resort face the river!) and had awe-inspiring views every morning. The Resort arranges for various activities including Safaris in the National Park and white water rafting. Being slight adrenalin junkies, we opted for the latter, and had a fantastic time! The food is satisfactory (Rishikesh is a strict vegetarian city) and although we couldnt drink alcohol, we didnt really need it. Overall, the perfect weekend getaway for city mice like us!
You should visit this hotel for the simple reason is the beautiful location and outstanding hospitality. It is situated on the banks of Ganga. All the rooms have a view of the beautiful river. Watching the early morning sunrise from your room makes you realise the sheer happiness of staying in such a nice place The rooms are cosy and very clean. Breakfast is yummy. And the food they serve is also awesome. The staff is so warm and friendly. The best part is you can take a private dip in the holy Ganga, what more could I ask for they have early morning yoga sessions The Ganga Aarti and finally on day of departure they give you complimentary 2 bottles of Ganglia. I would love to stay in this hotel the next time I visit Rishikesh.
The most amazingly located hotel in Rishikesh, by far! Contrary to claims by other hotels in the region, this resort actually is right on the banks of the Ganges. In fact, there is a beautiful esplanade where one can go for jogs and soak in the sights of the river and the Rajaji National Park, which incidentally is right across the hotel (in the middle of the river)! One can stroll across the well manicured gardens of the hotel and walk up to the river to offer a prayer or just enjoy the sight and smell of the sacred river. Apart from the proximity to the river, the hotel also offers a splendid view of the Rajaji National Park, known for its bountiful flora and fauna. The rooms are very contemporary and cosy, with each room offering mesmerising views of the river. The resort\'s cheerful riverside cafe is the perfect spot to have an enjoyable meal. All in all, very enjoyable stay and highly recommended to all Rishikesh tourists!
The Ganga Kinare is a lovely hotel located, as its name suggests, right on the banks of the river. It's a few kilometers before the main town of Rishikesh - and is therefore perfect if your looking for a getaway that is quiet, peaceful and uncrowded . . The rooms are quite spacious and done up very tastefully. The highlight of our room was the view. The room comes with a full-length, wall to wall glass window - pull aside the curtains and you are treated to a breathtaking view of the river, with the hills towering over them. It's absolutely gorgeous, and I whiled away many hours on the couch by the window, snuggled up with a book The restaurant also has lovely views of the river. The breakfast buffet is very good with lots of fruits and freshly cooked items on the menu. I was skeptical about a breakfast without eggs - all restaurants in Rishikesh are vegetarian but they had enough variety on offer so one doesn't even miss the eggs. We had a couple of meals at the restaurant, and they were consistently fresh and tasty. They have a flutist playing live music during certain hours; and I thought that was a very nice touch The restaurant leads out on to a garden; it's very pretty there at around dusk, when there's still enough light but the hotel lamps come on. From the garden, there are steps leading directly to the river, and you can use these is you want to go for a dip/immersion. You can step out on to a public pathway (I think it's called the Astha Path) that runs alongside the river. Walk along this path for about 2 kms, and you reach Triveni Ghat, where the Ganga Arti happens. It's a pleasant walk, and definitely preferable to navigating the traffic of Rishikesh town. The hotel can arrange sightseeing Tours and activities. They arranged white-water rafting and a jungle safari at Rajaji National Park for us in my opinion, both were well organized and reasonably priced. It's very convenient because they pick-up you up right from the hotel, and then drop you back at the hotel at the end of the activity. The hotel also organizes complimentary yoga and meditation sessions on the terrace every morning, but we didn't take part in them Finally, a word about the staff and service. Throughout our stay, the service was prompt, friendly, and helpful be it check-in, room service, restaurant, reception etc. But many times the staff also went out of their way to take care of our needs. For example, when I was leaving for the jungle safari at 6 am, the receptionist handed me some sandwiches and fruits that the restaurant had packed for me, so I wouldn't go hungry! I hadn't even requested for it so that was a very thoughtful gesture. The location, the views and the service were all fabulous, and really made our weekend trip to Rishikesh!
Location wise, the hotel was situated inside the city and near to the transportation and also on the main highway road. Servicing staff was really good and overall, services were best. I stayed there many times. Check-in and check-out process was not delayed. I travelled there alone for business purpose before two months. My overall, experience there was fantastic. Surrounding of the hotel was nice. Behaviour of the manager was very friendly and his name is Sharma. Interior look of the hotel was better than the exterior. Rooms were awesome and it was equipped with basic amenities like TV, AC, geyser, etc and they all were in working condition. Wash room and furnishing were fully furnished. Ganga river view was visible from my room. Staff was cleaning the room regularly. Hot and cold water facility was available there for all the time. They did provide the food facility according to our choice. Quality of the food was fantastic and cost wise, the food was reasonable. They provided me 50% discount on their tariff. Swimming pool was not available there but spa and other activities were available there. They did not organize any sightseeing trip for us. I am fully satisfied with this hotel. I would like to recommend this hotel to other travellers. As a destination, Rishikesh place is excellent. Hospitality of the hotel was superb.
