Nestled in between the quiet and winding streets of Tapovan, lies our retreat space. With the splendor of the Himalayan mountains and the alluring sounds of the river as part of the setting, your wild heart and soul will feel at home here!

Set beside the Ganges river, Tapovan is a lively area with an alternative vibe, known for its yoga ashrams, adventure tours, and upscale resorts. Laid-back terrace cafes with river views serve pancakes and coffee, and small shops sell quirky clothing and crafts. Tapovan is quiet, calm, and cool, and is definitely a perfect place to stay during your time in Rishikesh.

Our retreat space is semi-luxury and has a swimming pool (only in the summer months of March-June), a comfortable garden for outdoor practices and relaxation and a yoga hall with a stunning view of greenery and the river…. Just imagine your morning practices in the cool fresh mountain air with your background music being the natural sounds of the flowing river, live music and dancing outside by a bonfire with your new-found friends, your warm and soothing evening practice in the coziness of our yoga hall…!

For the safety of all our guests, the exact address will be provided once the booking is made.
