Atul Marwah the General Manager, juSTa Rasa Retreat and Spa Rishikesh says ‘The retreat’s layout and riverbank location are such as to attract discerning travelers looking for solitude and luxury. The resort’s design with mostly wood usage with large glass windows and balconies gives one an additional sense of being closer to nature.  Not forgetting meals at our restaurant ‘ Under the Banyan Tree’ which is considered one of the best in the area.’

Certainly, the luxury resort, which is a distinct one-of-a-kind property in the area offers a great connection with the blissful experience of life by the river Ganges. Visitors will be surprised by the private nature of the retreat in the foothills of mountains. Sitting on the banks of the holy river, it is a wonderful experience to get a restful pause and let time stands still in utter calmness and peace.

The retreat in the yoga capital of the world i.e., Rishikesh, offers an interesting blend of Rasa (Indian artwork), holistic view of hills, and private river access. Its setting amidst nature, green hills, village charm, and quietness all around is enviable. The ambiance encourages guests to let their worries be behind them and take in nature gazing, meditation, and spa therapies.

Set in the perfect abode of a private river, a hill facing space, serene, and sylvan setting around, it is definitely one of the best riverside resorts in Rishikesh, situated as it is, away from the humdrum of the city and that too in the peaceful natural surroundings. Not surprisingly, the resort provides an eco-friendly stay, an extensive line of activities, and direct access to the river itself.
