  • About the Resort

  • Our retreat takes place at the beautiful Dewa Retreat Centre, Rishikesh, a luxury hotel in the foothills of Himalayas and one of the top 10 hotels in Rishikesh. Each room at Hotel Dewa Retreat offers breathtaking views of the Himalayan hills and a private quiet balcony area to relax, sip a cup of tea or just read a book to the sound of the river Ganges and the wind kissing the hills. The hotel also has a swimming pool with stunning views and a serene spa for some rejuvenating optional treatments. Tapovan-Rishikesh is a city of pilgrimage for Westerners and Indians alike, and is where the Beatles came to find meaning to life with the maharishi, and stayed long enough to write over 50 songs! It is still a perfect spot to de-stress, deepen your yoga practice and connect to yourself and your surroundings. http://www.dewaretreat.com/
