“Dewa” or Deva (देव in Devanagari script) is the Sanskrit word for divine being or God. It also means “celestial” or “shining”, from the root.

Dewa Retreat is Boutique Himalayan retreat situated in the foothills of the Himalayas in the area called Tapovan – Forest of Meditation. It is a 5-10 minute walk from the riverbank temples and ashrams, bookshops and cafés, yoga and meditation centres of Laxman Jhula. In the vibrant, sometimes chaotic bustle of India, the Laxman Jhula area of Rishikesh offers a refreshing change.

Whatever your reason for visiting the cultural kaleidoscope of Rishikesh, whether spiritual, physical or meditative, for a romantic getaway or a place to unwind, Dewa Retreat is ideally placed as the base for your stay, long or short – and our personalised services ensure you have an experience that will stay with you for a long time.
