About the Resort / Holiday Stay : Howard Sanctuary Rishikesh

Howard Sanctuary - Pura Stays is the diamond amongst river front resorts. Silence, holiness, yoga, meditation, and auspiciousness is what constitutes the principle essence of the resort. Uncompromising location adjoining Hem river sets it apart from the urban wilderness of stress and emotional drain.

Called an Urban Ashram, the resort equates with a modern hermitage. Extensive wooden furniture, exquisite paintings, in-house spa, large yoga hall, two dedicated lawns, and soothing sound of the river makes it a gem among the stones. The resort has all the requisites of a modern lodging and, yet, boasts a character of holiness.

Outdoor lawn offers unobstructed views and access to the river to soak in. Meditation spots, elaborate library, silent zones, and hammocks designed for secluded readers make this resort a magnet among those who seek liberation. One could walk around the lawn, sit facing the river and meditate, attend in-house yoga classes, indulge in spa sessions, participate in the Ganga aarti at nearby ghat, or simply laze around and ponder listening to the sound of the milky river.
