Indian Hotels Company (IHCL), India’s largest hospitality company, announced the opening of Anand Kashi By The Ganges – IHCL SeleQtions hotel in Rishikesh.

Puneet Chhatwal, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, IHCL said, “Known as the Yoga Capital of the world, Rishikesh is an eclectic mix of culture and adventure, attracting tourists from around the world for decades. Strengthening its presence with the addition of Anand Kashi, IHCL will now offer two distinct hotels in the pilgrim town.”

Anand Kashi’s 24-themed rooms, conceptualised on the Vedic Panchamahabhuta philosophy, offer breathtaking views of thick forests, lofty mountain ranges, lush fruit orchards, and the Ganges. The hotel showcases Garhwali architecture with a contemporary touch.

The all-day diner, Ana Rasa, gives a taste of global cuisines along with a slice of fresh organic produce from the hotel’s orchards. Guests can enjoy a starry night at the rooftop bar, Amrit Tara, or have a relaxed meal at the Ganga Deck. The flexible conference rooms are perfectly equipped for intimate business meetings and conferences.

Amrit Kashi Spa by Forest Essentials draws inspiration from its serene surroundings, and its holistic treatments provide a deep sense of inner peace. At the hotel, guests can indulge in bespoke experiences including the Ganga Aarti by the resident priest, or just watch the Ganges flow from the hotel’s private beach and soak in the energy of Rishikesh.

“Anand Kashi on the banks of the sacred Ganges is the ideal place for the rejuvenation of body, mind, and soul. We look forward to welcoming guests to this tranquil haven,” said Pradeep Gusain, Hotel Manager, Anand Kashi By The Ganges – IHCL SeleQtions.
