An Experiential Stay #ByTheGanges
- Raga On The Ganges | November 12, 2022
Hush silence of the valley, a winding road upwards offering the scenic view of the turquoise-green Ganges on one side and the towering mountains on the other punctuates your journey to Raga.
A mere 30-km from Rishikesh Bus Stand, our boutique property is built on a hard black rock and offers surreal views of the Ganges from every sun deck. Featuring 40 tastefully done rooms oozing luxury and elegance, a quiet staycation in the hills is a promise that we take seriously.
When at Raga, you can start your days with a brisk walk around the property or head straight to a secluded and pristine beach near the property. Cross a suspension bridge (pause here for a 360 degree view of the mountains around you), trek through a forest and you will find yourself admiring the white-powdery sand that shimmers at daybreak.
While the ideal thing to do would be to practice yoga, we won't blame you if you find yourself idling the time away or dipping your toes in the cold and soothing water of the Ganges. If you are feeling up for it, ask our staff to lead the way further amidst the rocks that are interspersed on the entire beach. Find a comfortable spot and spend a few moments in the lap of nature.
Unwind with a hot cup of chai and refreshments. A veritable spread of delicious breakfast awaits you at the property. Take your pick from freshly squeezed juices (seasonal), hot coffee with idli or poha. A hearty feast like this calls for an afternoon siesta and when you are on vacation, you can spend your days as packed with activities or with nothing to do. Often times, it is the latter that gives us the most space and time to unwind.
Indulge in a Therapeutic Massage at our in-house Spa, Vedic Roots
Meditative and energizing, a spa session at Raga is a reposeful activity that complements every relaxing getaway perfectly. From holistic full-body massage to facial scrubs for detoxifying, there are a plethora of treatments to choose from. With the view of the Ganges elevating your experience and the fragrant concoction of essential oils filling the room, you are in for an enthralling spa session at Raga.
Unwind by the Ganges
If you are up for it, there is a secluded spot inside the property perfect for unwinding or sitting for hours. Follow the path down from the restaurant, and you after a descent of 10-15 minutes, you will encounter powdery white sand once again. Only this time, it is a small and serene space ideal for reading your favourite book or listening to the gushing of the Ganges as time goes on.
Among the many things you can do at Raga, doing nothing and putting a pause everything that is going on in your mind is our recommendation. A slow and relaxed vacation where you just immerse yourself in the aura of the place and come our rejuvenated is what reposeful vacations look like. Experience the small and unhurried moments at Raga.
