    Firstly, the staff are warm, welcoming and genuine the minute you arrive. Welcome drink and beads are a nice touch. They helpfully explain the facilities and surrounding area, with emphasis on the need to relax! The views of the mountains are stunning, especially when sitting in the pool after a long day walking. The attached restaurant does nice, well priced food and the inclusive breakfast is more than ample. The cafe across from the hotel also does delicious healthy smoothies. Wifi is good and location is off the main road so nice and quiet. Rooms are clean and spacious, beds are comfortable and shower is good. Only minor suggestion for improvement would be that the airport transfer organised by the hotel for 1400 rupees was a bit expensive for the vehicle provided.

    When we explained to the hotel staff that we we going to an ashram nearby after our stay, they said we would be welcome back if we ever needed any help or advice with anything, which is an example of how nice and genuine the staff are. We only had one night, but if we return to Rishikesh we will definitely be staying here again. Could not recommend enough.

    We had a relaxing stay at Dewa Retreat in June 2016. The hotel had a beautiful view of mountain from our room / balcony which was very nice! Nice traditional welcome with a wooden necklace. It has a nice neat and clean swimming pool that kids enjoyed. Food was tasty, hygienic with mild spices. breakfast was a good mix for all of us. Room size was big with all basic necessities available. Overall it was a good stay.

    Our stay from check in and check out was one of the finest experience of customer service. This gem of a hotel located away from the main road and in a quiet area has modern rooms with amazing views of the lower Himalayas.

    Reception staff was very helpful in answering all our concerns as this was a long awaited holiday with my family. Mr. Prateek and the team suggested rafting, waterfall visits and other activities to us. Also the proximity of the hotel to the Laxman Jhula bridge and river Ganges is an added advantage. One is short walk from the main tourist attractions.

    Food is fresh and tasty. The breakfast buffet served fresh fruits and a lavish spread with many options to choose from. Kids loved the shakes, smoothies and pizza at the organic café.

    My wife tried the spa and was all praise for the professional experience. Mr. Bharat Arora the General Manager was always warm and helpful whenever required. He even arranged a tuk tuk service form the hotel for us when needed. Thank you Dewa Retreat for making our holiday memorable.

    Had a great stay at the Dewa Retreat. The rooms were great, well-appointed, clean and comfortable. Also, the air conditioned organic cafe was a lovely place to while away the afternoon with exellent food and a good book! However, the think that really made it for me was the outstanding customer service, which didn't stop at just ensuring the accommodation was comfortable. The staff were proactive and actively worked to organise interesting things to do while I was there to enhance my experience in Rishikesh. Bharat and Patik in particular were excellent client hosts, but my thanks go to all the team, who were all great. There are more expensive hotels in town, which claim to be "the best", but in my opinion, the Dewa retreat beats them all hands down. Thanks all, I will look forward to my next visit!

    Nice property, great location and a very peaceful stay !. Super Deluxe rooms are all facing the mountain and Laxman Jhula, Good service and excellent food !. Reception staff very courteous, co-operative and always ready to help, on request they let us stay for a couple of hours after our actual check-out - a nice gesture!

    we stayed in Room no. 203 which is their super deluxe room with private balcony facing swimming pool. The room was spacious and clean. Kids enjoyed playing the swimming pool a lot. We also had lunch there in their in-house restaurant Satvik which was really tasty. Overall we enjoyed staying at the hotel and would love to stay there again.

    We stayed for four nights in Dewa retreat from 25 to 29 May 2016 . The best thing is swimming pool . Not very big but it was fun . Rooms are spacious and furnished to the need . Super delux rooms balconies are facing mountains with nice view. Breakfast is served at ground floor . Breakfast has limited items and could be added with few dishes . The one health punch of Musali with curd and honey is very good . Dinner is made to order . It is better not to include dinner in package to have flexibility . The food quality and taste is very good . The management is ready to listen any suggestion . They have another reatuarant called pure and soul which is excellent . Limited dishes with brilliant quality and lots of shakes and drinks . We had lunch there everyday . The hotel is 10 minutes walk from Laxman jhula .

    At the Dewa Retreat we were greeted by a pleasant young woman offering us a glass of rhododendron punch and meditation beads. She informed us that our room had been upgraded from a "partial mountain view" to a "full mountain view" with a balcony and chairs to relax in. Our room was spacious with twin beds, small sofa, a flat screen TV and a cedar wardrobe. The sheets on the bed were rough and didn't stay in place very well. The washroom (bathroom) had only a shower, one hand towel and two bath towels. There was no plug for the sink which made it difficult to safely clean my contacts. Also on the main floor there is a washroom for the use of guests but twice I used the facilities and there was no toilet paper which made it awkward. I had to get some paper towels and throw them in the wastepaper basket after use. I attended yoga classes in the morning the days we stayed at Dewa Retreat. It seemed sunrise was a time of windiness. In the halls and the yoga room it was quite drafty and cold. Yoga was great with around 10-12 students in each class. The breakfast buffet had lots of variety, but I wasn't so impressed with the dinner we ate in the hotel restaurant. My husband had a grilled cheese sandwich which must have been cooked in a panani press because it was about 1/2 inch think. I ordered vegetable lasagne topped with a light colored cheese reminiscent of what we call "Velveeta" in the States. Now for the location. Don't miss lunch at Ramanas which is a restaurant run in conjunction with an orphanage. This eatery is very popular, so we ate first and then wanted to play with the children afterwards. But when we finished, the children were practicing a program and so we weren't able to see them. I would recommend finding out in advance when the children are free to be seen by visitors. The men at the desk of Dewa can give you walking directions to Ramanas. It is also within walking distance of the Lakshman Jhula bridge where there is great shopping. Beware of the monkeys though. Don't carry your purse, camera, or shopping bag at your side by the strap. Monkeys may snatch it from you looking for food. And if they don't find food they may just throw that purse or expensive camera in the Ganga.

    We couldn't be happier with our stay at the Dewa Retreat! From arrival to departure, the retreat made it easy to navigate Rishikesh and beyond with absolutely no pressure.My boyfriend and I arrived in Rishikesh late in the evening with a tentative reservation through an online booking site. They offered us a MUCH better deal than the booking site along with complimentary rhododendron juice and prayer beads. We had only planned to stay a night while we got our bearings but stayed for four!For those yoga inclined, the hotel offers daily introductory yoga instruction (interesting but very basic) or it's conveniently located near a few great Ashrams - Anand Prakash is just around the corner and had great classes.The daily breakfast, included in our room, was wonderful! Fresh fruit, Continental and Indian breakfast items as well as fresh ginger tea and chai was made for a great start to the day. The food menu items were straight forward with the exception of some fun drinks. The restaurant staff were so sweet in answering all of our questions- they even brought out of of the mixes for our favorite drinks so we could take a picture to look for at home.The rooms were incredibly clean (floors, linens, bathroom), they had GREAT hot water, and the hotel staff went above and beyond to make our trip easy. They even reserved train tickets through a third party and had them delivered to the hotel at no additional charge! They had great recommendations on places to visit with absolutely no pressure.Finally, the location was great! Nestled just off the main road, it's convenient to transportation and is less than a five minute walk to the foot bridge. It's close to everything while still being a quiet oasis with views of the hills.I highly recommend staying a night or a week at the Dewa Retreat; you won't be disappointed!

    Rishikesh hotels are mainly boutique property and so is Dewa but when it comes to customer service they are at par with big chains GM of the hotel Mr Bharat is very helpful and is ready to walk extra mile for his guest. Rooms are clean and airy breakfast was good though limited in options.

    This was our second trip to hotel Deva Retreat at Rishikesh in the last 14 months with family. Our experience staying at hotel Deva Retreat is excellent. The hotel has all the amenities which you can think of, for us this is like another home away from home.....Hotel staff is very courteous, Hotel management is easily accessible in case of anything, food is simple but delicious and hygienic, you can stair mountain from your private balcony for hours, you can breathe in fresh air away from city life, you can enjoy in swimming pool with kids. One thing I like most about the hotel is the location and its proximity to Laxman Jhula and River Ganga. I would love to stay in the hotel again in my next visit to Rishikesh. I hope by that time their caf will be operational which is under construction.

    I can't say enough great things about Dewa Retreat. The staff, especially Sudhanshu at the front desk, are extremely accommodating and helpful. They are very attentive and made every effort to keep us comfortable. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. The super deluxe rooms with balcony and views of the mountain are worth the extra rupees. The pool is clean and clear. The restaurant is clean and has a menu that has something for everyone's taste. Great location within easy walking distance to Laxman Jhula area. Dewa Retreat was exactly what I needed when I needed it. They made our stay in Rishikesh memorable and comfortable. Looking forward to going back one day!

    My partner and I stayed at the Dewa Retreat for four nights and had a wonderful stay. The staff are amazing! They were courteous, helpful, friendly, and always willing to go the extra mile to make sure we were comfortable. The view of the Himalayan foothills from our room was also amazing. Our room was comfortable and spacious and the food in the restaurant was delicious. Actually, everyone here was above and beyond helpful. They arranged for a computer fix, helped with travel connections. We were even invited to attend a local Hindu ceremony. It couldn't have been better!

  • Granvesuvio Netherlands

    Because most people visit Rishikesh to study yoga or pursue spiritual interests, there are very few places to stay that really cater to tourists or those who prefer more comfortable accommodations. The Dewa Retreat is a new hotel in Tapovan that offers foreigners the opportunity to stay in this wonderful city while enjoying classic comfortable accommodations. The restaurant has a good assortment of "familiar" foods including smoothies and vegi burgers and the Ganga is a short walk away. If you want to be comfortable in Rishikesh, this is one of your best choices.

    This was my first time in Rishikesh with my family and it was truly wonderful. This gem hidden from the main highway is conveniently located just a short walk from Laxman Jhula bridge - one of the main attractions of Rishikesh.We stayed at the Deluxe room which had decent partial mountain view and was large, had a comfortable king size bed and with all the modern amenities.My wife tried the free yoga session in the morning which were relaxing and the luxury Spa at the hotel is the best experience she has had in a long time.What sets this place apart is the amazing staff who are all smiles and ready to serve your needs in any possible way. We were recommended the best places to visit, if we wanted to eat outside for a change they even suggested a lovely restaurant.Pool is medium size and perfect - Well maintained and Very clean. Cannot say this about many other places we have stayed in our travels.I must mentioned their delicious food at Sattvik which is made as per order and the chef goes an extra mile to know if everything was ok.5 stars all the way and the only place to stay in Rishikesh if you want to be in a lovely hotel in a peaceful quiet area and still walking from the attractions.

    This is a great hotel! We got a good deal because of the off-season that made the value even better. The view from our balcony room was breathtaking and that location of the hotel is great - a short walk from Lakshman Jhula yet away from the chaos near the jhula. The wifi was really fast (over 2mbps).Staff were the best part of this hotel. They were extremely flexible and very helpful with information. Everyone's trying their best. I would stay here again!

    I stayed at the Dewa Retreat for 3 nights. The owner and his son checked on us every day to see if we needed anything. They would make suggestions for nearby sites to see. The manager of the hotel even called Ramana's Garden and arranged for us to visit the children living in the orphanage. We were given a tour of the facility and invited back for the evening free time. We returned with small treats for the children. Another evening while we were at the Dewa the owner took us to one of the local temples for evening prayers, a very spiritual experience. We also took advantage of the free morning yoga sessions. Owners are also in the process of adding outdoor eating cafe as a second restaurant for the hotel. Rooms were nice with lovely views.

    We found this hotel because our taxi driver didn't know the way to another hotel we were planning to go! This was a really good mistake because we found Dewa. It's the best! The atmosphere is really nice and relax. The staff is friendly and professional. They gave us also good advice about activities around Rishikesh. The location is perfect. It's close to the town but it is still quite. A good place to relax. The swimming pool is nice and clean also the rooms are clean and big. They offer free yoga lessons in the morning and here is a spa. After yoga class we enjoyed the good breakfast. Al the food is great actually. It felt like a real holiday after a few weeks traveling through India!

    We (my husband, 10 month old baby and i) stayed at Dewa retreat in the last week of July while in Rishikesh. The hotel maintains high standards and is very clean and we'll maintained. The food is good and staff is very courteous. They have a spa on the facility and also give free yoga classes. The room we stayed in gives a good view of the mountains as well as the hotel swimming pool. It was totally worth the money.

    I have travelled to many countries in the last 3 years and I am a retired hotelier. The Deva Retreat is by far the best overall I have visited for the friendliest staff, very attentive, most accommodating and resourceful for "Anything" you need during your stay, impeccable rooms, and cleanliness with attention to detail. Dining room has a wonderful menu and the food was always excellent no matter what choice. Room service was the quickest I ever experienced. The pool is cool despite the hot weather. A beautiful hotel and staff all committed to your comfort and pleasure most definitely at your service.

    A comfortable, spacious, and well equipped retreat with the feel of a LA boutique hotel in the "Yoga Capital" of the world. A well designed blend of modern and ancient with teak wood floors, airy uncluttered rooms, lobbies with a 360 view of Himalayan mountains, and river Ganges. The rooms and bathroom are comfy, modern and simple with WiFi, and flat panel. Most have a balcony with a nice view. Hotel is in a quiet area about 5 -10 min walk from most of the action in Rishikesh. The yoga hall aptly named Prana on the rooftop, surrounded by mountains, truly infuses you with life force. I ran some classes for my workshop there. There is also a large WiFi and projector equipped lecture hall downstairs as well as a fireplace equipped library. The rooftop restaurant being built is an ideal place to spend evenings chatting with friends on a starry night. Overall, it is a great place for holding yoga retreats or spending a week or two to recharge your batteries with some yoga, meditation, and good food. Anyhow, what sets Dewa apart is a retreat like atmosphere, sustainable practices, and intelligent/caring staff.

    My family felt very happy at Dewa Retreat. The whole staff was extremely warm and helpful. The kids were looked after very well. The yoga sessions were refreshing and the yoga is the best in Rishikesh. We researched a lot before planning the trip and were extremely satisfied by our decision to stay here away from the traffic. We ended up in a quiet place, just us, and green fields enveloped by nature all around. The rooms are modern with all the proper facilities. A feeling of calm is present there. A personal treatment was prepared by the staff making the experience truly memorable. The restaurant deserves a special mention for they cooked mouthwatering made to order dishes which were not on the menu. I recommend this place for peace, nature, personal attention of the staff, yoga sessions at the best yoga hall as well as the professional yoga instructors I have ever experienced in my travels in India and abroad.

    Magnificent hotel and marvelous service. Picturesque view from most the rooms facing the hills. Topnotch service and highly hospitable staff. Mr.Virendar and Mr.Sahil were full of life. They left no stone unturned to make our stay pleasant at their hotel. They guided us about places to visit and things to look forward to in Rishikesh. Not to mention the food was mouthwatering. This hotel is my first and final recommendation to anyone planning a trip to Rishikesh. A value for money hotel.
