Stay at One of the Best Hotels in Rishikesh

Global trends indicate vacationers are moving towards outdoor and open spaces instead of traditional 4-walled hotel holidays, this is where we come in. We are at 30 kms from Rishikesh which is a hub for yoga and meditation, a destination for the Beatles; and the biggest adventure holiday destination in India. Located in the middle of a reserved forest, with more than 300 trees on the property, Atali is the ideal Himalayan experience, and also the quickest one.

Launched in 2012 by Aquaterra Adventures one of India’s premier Adventure Tour Operator, Atali Ganga immediately won hearts over and was listed in 2013 by Conde Nast under the 50 Best New Hotels in the World, won the Travellers’ Choice Award from 2013 to 2017 and was listed under the Top 25 Small Hotels in India by TripAdvisor for not only being the leading hotel in Rishikesh but also for offering and delivering one of the best and safest rafting experiences on the Ganga River.

Before you book, please read

Our property is an oasis surrounded by Reserved Forest, and it is a thorough privilege to be so close to nature. If you book, come with the purpose of living in the valley of India’s holiest life force, the Ganga, for the call of the barking deer, or the midnight roar of the leopard ; and for that lovely dull ache after a busy day in the great outdoors. This expectation will help you enjoy your holiday better, and we appreciate guests who realise this opportunity to commune with nature.

  • 80% of the property is built on a hillside, and you will have to walk a series of steps to reach your cottage. If your group includes infants, small kids and infirm elders, do request for cottages closer to the Cafe.
  • We do not have room service or TV’s in our rooms.
  • We will replace bed linen & towels once every 3 days. We are in the Himalaya, where water is in perennial shortage. We appreciate your sensitivity to our location.
  • We don’t have a spa / massage therapist, yet.
  • We are happy to host your maids as part of your family, at standard rates.
  • 2 of our 3 family units are double-storied on a single structure, and not interconnected.
  • Our White Water Café operates only during regular meal times, not 24X7
