We have taken great care to choose hotels that are both safe and comfortable. That said, it is important to remember that rural India is still a developing country. Hotels in remote parts of the country will not have the same level of amenities to which Westerners might be accustomed. It is best to stay flexible, keep an open mind, and be prepared for rustic accommodations. This may be challenging at times, but most find that safe, comfortable accommodations are a welcome relief from the busy streets of India.
In New Delhi we will stay at a comfortable four-star hotel while we all get acclimated. The remainder of our stay will be at the Divine Resort Hotel in Rishikesh. Perched on the high on the banks above the river, the Divine Resort Hotel has comfortable accommodations, a pool, a restaurant, on-site massage therapy and spa services and spectacular views of the river below. The hotel also has an indoor yoga studio and a gorgeous outdoor terrace on which we will practice yoga.
Single or Double
Many hotel rooms in India have one large bed and many do not offer twin beds as an option. If you are traveling with a friend or partner, or you don’t mind sharing a bed with a new friend, you may want to choose a double occupancy room to reduce your costs. If you prefer to have your own bed or more privacy, you will want to upgrade to a single room. You can request twin beds, but there are no guarantees.
