20,000sq ft Jiva Spa opens at Taj Rishikesh Resort in northern India
POSTED 01 Apr 2019 . BY Jane Kitchen
The Indian Hotels Company Limited (IHCL) is introducing the iconic Taj brand in the northern Indian city of Rishikesh with the opening of Taj Rishikesh Resort & Spa, the company’s third hotel in the state of Uttarakhand.

The resort, 30 kilometres from Rishikesh, is spread over 12.5 acres of terraced gardens on the banks of the river Ganges in the shadow of the Himalayas. Each of the 79 bedrooms have panoramic views of the Ganges with its white sandy beach, and the majestic mountains.

The resort is home to the Jiva Spa, spread over 20,000sq ft, and includes treatment rooms and an expansive Yoga Pavilion. Jiva Spa is rooted in the rich and ancient wellness traditions of India, offering holistic programmes including yoga and meditation.

“With its idyllic setting and unrestricted views of the Himalayas, the resort is well-positioned to tap into the growing potential of the wellness and spiritual tourism market,” said Puneet Chhatwal, managing director and CEO of IHCL. “This is consistent with our commitment to offer global travellers new and unique experiences in hospitality.”

Taj Rishikesh is a unique blend of contemporary and rustic in communion with nature. It is an architectural tribute to the Garhwal region in the Himalayas where it is located.

Guests can also partake in a private Ganga Aarti on the resort’s Pebble Beach or in adventure-filled activities like white-river rafting, rock climbing, rappelling, kayaking, local village visits and hiking.

Located in the foothills of the Himalayas in the northern Indian state of Uttarakhand, Rishikesh is known as the spiritual and yoga capital of the world.
