    Best Panchakarma in Rishikesh India
    Thank you to Om Mantra for getting my health back. I was feeling so sick with sinus, migraine and general body weakness for months. After coming to Om Mantra and competing 21 day panchakarma program I feel brand new. I highly recommend everyone, sick or healthy, to undergo this program. It will change your life as it changed mine. I will make sure to come back every year for maintenance. Thank you Vikram and Tara for your daily love, care and presence. Now you are my family forever! ❤️

    Panchakarma treatment
    My experience at Om Mantra centre was beyond my expectations. I competed 21day panchakarma treatment and feel better than I have ever felt in my life. I loved all the treatments including marma therapy, cupping and Agni karma. I feel lots of gratitude in my heart. This is definitely the best panchakarma place in Rishikesh, India!

    EXCELLENT AYURVEDIC place of Vikrant Yogi Raj in Laxman Jhula, Rishikesh : OM MANTRA Ayurveda Panchakarma Centre. Across both extreme heat & cooler monsoon temperatures of North India, I've felt great joy and relaxation to receive massages & other healing therapies as from 2019 and now in 2023 with various therapists of Vikrant, as Sushila and her magic hands! Life is beautiful and health is a great blessing. Anapana Sushumna Sati🙏💚 Aseema Om Tara

    It’s good, BUT…
    I had a lovely 6-days stay at Om Mantra. Tara and Vikrant are very much service oriented. Really appreciated all the guidance and help they have offered me. When it comes to treatments, you will find with difficulty a similar level of attention to details and skill somewhere else. I did find the price to be on a MUCH higher level, but the quality of their treatments is as well somewhat higher than in other centers in Rishikesh. At least this is how it was for me, being treated by Kuldeep. I think the biggest problem for me was the food and the accommodation…. food could have been a bit more diverse and the portions could be bigger. I had to ask three or four times for refills because it was just not enough. Plus it definitely lacked diversity. It felt that the restaurant was just ticking a box. Accommodation was ok. I would probably stayed somewhere else, like in a yoga center,as at the hotel which outsource the accommodation sometimes come national tourists and they are LOUD. Plus it was empty at the time I was there so it was a bit lonely there. I guess when the bridge to the other side opens, the situation will change. Think of this place as a center where you can get decent treatments and nothing more and you should be fine.

Thank you Vikrantji and Taraji for an excellent Panchakarma retreat. Vikrant and team provided an A+ treatment with great personal care and attention. Super grateful to Kuldeep (my therapist) who put so much effort and energy into my treatments - rare to find someone so professional and service oriented. Both Vikrantji and Taraji communicated really well and helped navigate the daily Panchakarma routine. I originally planned for a 7 day program but extended to 10 and then 11 days after seeing the high quality of the treatment I was getting. The yoga teacher Ganeshji was also excellent and adapted guided sessions to the level of the people in the class. I was also able to meet Dr. Mishra twice who examined me and prescribed Ayurvedic medicines for me. It was also really great to meet other guests who were also doing the program with me.

The entire package was excellent - the accommodation, food, doctor consultation and daily treatments. The deck next to my room provided serene and incredible views of the Ganga - which was a real delight to wake up to everyday. The food is sattvik - no frills food meant to help the panchakarma process.

My many conversations with Vikrantji during my stay made me realize Vikrantji's tremendous depth of knowledge gained through training and years of practical experience - how he has been researching and adapting ancient knowledge to make treatments more effective for today's people who are always constrained for time. Vikrant and Tara also arranged for some unexpected surprises which made my stay memorable - a VIP experience on the banks of the Ganga at Parmarth Niketan, a specially organized havan and a visit to Kunjapuri.

All in all this was a great retreat and experience, no complaints at all. I feel my state of mind and body improved quite a bit in the 11 days I stayed here and hope to return every year.

I received Ayurveda treatment during 5 days, the doctor saw me in the first day and organized each day sessions so I was receiving up to 3 different treatments everyday one of them always a full body massage
The Ayurveda practitioner was very knowledge and professional, by the end of the 5th day I felt new.
The rooms where very clean and the space calming.
Before i leave Rishikesh I’ll do few more session with them.
Namaste 🙏

I have chosen OM Mantra based on basically Only 5 stars reviews on Trip Advisor and Google ..
Oh boy was I wrong this time!

I have been working for one of the largest Airlines Company in the USA, Delta Air Lines ..as a Flight Leader on Board for 32 years flying all over the World.
Travel Industry/Hospitality Business is my Profession.

I believe Everyone should make an informed decision based on true facts especially when you coming from so far far away.. like me, from Miami, Florida.

I came to Rishikesh for two weeks with high expectations to do my Panchakarma treatments as my last 10 years were constant battles with two cancers Breast and Pancreatic.
I’m a lucky Survivor and wanted to do a total Detox with Panchakarma treatments.

I’ll simply present facts what I have experienced through the first three days before I escaped from OM Mantra .. it took me few days of unnecessary stress to keep looking for a New, Real Panchakarma Healing Retreat with a Good hotel.

ACCOMMODATION ..
OM Mantra uses Kaarwan by the Ganges hotel which is nicely located by the Ganga river but the location is the only good thing about it.
You should go on Booking.com to read reviews to fully understand the problems going on with this hotel.
OM Matra gives the rooms on the top floor which is the oldest part of the hotel with old small rooms.
My first room was a tiny, closet size room with the dirty bathroom ( even I paid 100$ more per week for a nice A/C room with Ganga view)
After demanding a better room I got a bigger one with Ganga view .. but still old room on the same floor with dirty bathroom and dripping nonstop water.
Photos on OM Mantra and Hotel websites show only the newer rooms which I was Not getting ..
I would like to also mention numerous bugs in my room as well as in my bed.

BIGGEST PROBLEM .. there is a hotel construction going on
with a NOISE ALL DAY LONG!!
One day the whole entry to hotel (which actually looks like an entry to some kind of Warehouse) was covered with building materials .. DUST around and many construction employees running around.
I wish I could be warned about it by Vikrant since I was sending numerous emails before I have arrived.
From Booking.com reviews I noticed people already complaining about construction noise in Feb/March 2023 and I came in September!!

FOOD ..
on OM Mantra site there are great descriptions as for example ..
“Om Mantra Panchakarma & Ayurveda Centre offers healthy and delicious food options to nourish your body and mind”

But in REALITY you getting four small metal containers for lunch and dinner delivered to your room with very basic, tasteless food.
Utensils were not provided.
Hygiene of the food very questionable.

Portions were very small with
No variety at all .. two or three of these containers had exactly the same food.
For breakfast a small aluminum container with one dish which was usually mixed rice.

After I complained about small amount to Vikrant he promised bigger portions but in fact the same small containers with the same amount of food was still delivered.

DAILY SCHEDULE …
another baloney.
Reality has nothing to do with what’s on website Schedule.

The only ONE 90 minutes MASSAGE per day I was ASSIGNED to (from 7.30am till 9.00am) was even conflicting with the only morning yoga class which was Not Offered at the hotel but in the Ashram, 10 min walk away.

I was interested to do
“Ayurveda Cooking Course for 3 days and Ayurveda Herbal Oil Course for 1 day” which are actually advertised on Om Mantra Site but NOTHING was available.

When I asked Tara what I supposed to do the whole day as my ONLY TREATMENT was finished by 9am and the afternoon yoga at the Ashram was impossible to attend since it was way too hot at that time of the day and
NO A/C down there …
she responded.. you should stay and rest in your room while doing Panchakarma.
The WHOLE DAY in the room ?? with ALL CONSTRUCTION NOISE AROUND.. Excuse me but this is some kind of the MACABRE.

MASSAGE
The masseuse lady was actually pretty good however the Massage room was a disaster.
It is located on the first floor facing directly the noisy street with nonstop honking cars and scooters .. try to relax in this environment!!

After my complain I got the other massage room located on the main level .. it’s actually OM Mantra office used for consultations with doctor.
It is divided with a wooden wall .. so this is how the second massage room was created …
when nobody is in the office then there is a privacy but if anyone there .. then sorry you are out of luck.

DOCTOR .. I did not meet with a main doctor who is presented on the website Dr. S K Mishra Ji
but Dr. Saklani who seemed knowledgeable.
However the visit was short, about half an hour and I was left with many questions and doubts.
Later on after I received my Ayurvedic Meditations
I was totally confused how to use them and for what medical problems they were??
Especially I was prescribed Five different ones and most of the boxes had descriptions in Hindu only.

There were other issues but I stick to the main ones only in order not to make this review way too long.

It is really disturbing to realize that
Tara (a Hindu name for Olga, who is not an Indian but a foreigner) and Vikrant don’t even feel sorry for presenting the Misleading Information and Many Beautiful Photos on their Website, which are not showing the Reality and make people realizing the True Facts Not Until on their arrival !!

Additionally for putting people in the Full Time Hotel Renovation with ALL DAY LONG CONSTRUCTION NOISES.. without Any Warnings!!
During Panchakarma Retreat you supposed to rest and relax a lot!!

I’m sorry but this is UNACCEPTABLE!!

Where should I start?! From the awfulness of the place where they are accommodating people coming for the retreat, from the fact that they are requiring a 100$ advance payment with no refund policy (even if the place is a scam and you find out only when you arrive there) and the rest of the money in the first day of arrival (before understanding what is really happening), that the food is coming to your 'room' in to go boxes? OMG, this was the worst experience I had as a traveler and I'm traveling 2-3 months / year.

În fact, they are just subcontracting businesses and offer them as a full package (accommodation, Ayurveda doctor, spa, yoga), but all of these are separated, with no connection. The accommodation is at Karwaan (they are not saying this beforehand, you find out on the spot - Google the place to see the reviews), the doctor consultation and the massage rooms in other place, the yoga place is in fact a public one where they are sending their guests.

The full story is: I contacted Vikrant Tara (they have the same Whatsapp, Tara is not Indian, she is a foreigner) 2 months before arriving in India, based on the 5 stars reviews Om Mantra has on Google and Trip Advisor, asking about their availabilities for ayurvedic doctor consultation and a 7 day yoga retreat. They said that they have availabilities.

Almost 1 week before our arrival, I asked them if they still have availabilities, as we decided to come to their place. They said yes and asked us a 100$ advance payment. We sent the money.

They were very helpful before our arrival, even helped us with a very early check in, which was very much appreciated. They said that they will give us a smaller room and the next day they will change our room to a bigger one.

The place where we stayed in the first and the only night spent there is the one in the photos I attached. The bigger room they proposed was indeed a little bigger, but it looked exactly the same as the other.

In our first morning there, we met another guest who was preparing to leave the place and I asked her how was her experience there. She said that she is leaving to another place after staying 3 nights at Om Mantra. Her main reasons of changing the place were: the noise from the ongoing construction, the to go, basic and not so good food, the continously pouring water from the shower and the fact that she was there for Panchakarma and the therapies she had for the first 3 days were basic massages (she was knowing what Panchakarma supposed to be and they were not doing right at all).

After talking whit this lady, we went to the doctor consultation. The doctor was not the one advertised on their website, but another one. I don't say that he was good or bad as we talked only for 5-7 min each, but he was definitely not the one we were expecting to meet.

After the consultation, Tara asked us to pay the rest of the amount (they asked us 400$ for 6 nights) for accommodation with full board. We said that we might change the accommodation, as we are not feeling comfortable with the room. They showed us the double room they wanted to give us, but, as I mentioned, it is not the place where one can relax, charge his/her batteries, have some quality time. It looked like a prison room.

Thus, we decided to change the accommodation and we did it.

This is when they showed up their true face. We asked them to tell us how much we owe them for one night, one breakfast and 2 x doctor consultations, so they can keep the amount from the 100$ deposit and refund us the rest. They replied very late saying that the 100$ amount is not refundable and that it was our decision to leave the place. Indeed, it was our decision to leave because they are cheating people by advertising a place and an experience which is not accurate at all. We wouldn't have come to Om Mantra if we kenw the accommodation facilities and that they are just subcontracting other people.

Actually, the owner of the Karwaan asked us how much did Vikrant and Tara asked us for accommodation. This shows that they are just doing business.

So, this is just to let other people like us know our version of the story. I know that there might be people with a different mindset, who might think that the accommodation facilities are not so important and that you are not coming to India for this, but for spirituality.

Overall, we definitely not recommend this place and especially not Tara and Vikrant.

Completed the punchkarma 1 week program. It was a wonderful experience.
I had slipped disc L4 and L5 with nurve root compression for the past 5years.
Started with Sirodhara treatment which focuses on mind relaxation before releasing body pain, different types of massage daily for 7 days with mix of Chiropractic session and much more.
All the treatment was done by kuldeep. Thanks a lot kuldeep for helping me in my recovery. God bless you!

What an incredible experience! I knew Vikrant from a visit to Rishikesh in 2019. After a 3 hour session with him, I felt amazing! So I knew if I was going to do a panchakarma treatment.. I would only trust to do it with him. And he didn't disappoint..
I also bought my parents with me for the treatment. I am 28 and they are 61 & 65.. they were nervous at first, but now they have fully converted to an Ayurvedic way of life :D
We noticed incredible difference in our skin, our energy, body aches and mental clarity, from just a 2 week treatment.. I can't imagine a 4 week treatment! The food was delicious too.
Thanks to Vikrant, Tara and our beautiful 3 masseuses.
We will all return!!
