Stay updated on the latest news about The Glasshouse on The Ganges, Rishikesh, here.
My Kind of Place: Rishikesh, India
Located right by the river, far away from the madness of the main town, Glasshouse on the Ganges is a classy boutique property from the Neemrana chain of “non hotels”. With tents and cottages, the hotel is right in the midst of a fruit orchard and comes with a private sandy beach. Cottages cost from 11,500 rupees (Dh665), including breakfast and taxes.
The river bends around this ‘non-hotel’ hotel of Neemrana and flows north to its source, a rarity, as GM Gajendra Singh points out. The uninterrupted flow croons a gentle lullaby at night, and in the morning, it becomes a background score to the symphony of birdsong that wakes you up. The glass house on the premises is the restaurant and play area; pick a comfortable seat here to watch the world go by.
