While Rishikesh is known for its spiritual and wellness offerings, the ancient city of Haridwar too is home to serene ghats, breathtaking temple complexes, and of course, old-school yoga ashrams. And amid this centre of spirituality and well-being, stands tall Pilibhit House, mirroring its surroundings while maintaining a modern luxe feel. The heritage residence also houses the largest private bathing ghat of the region for the customary dip and some quiet moments with the river.
