The hotel also offers its guests some unique Svaasa experiences, such as the Amritsari Food Walk (a gastronomical tour of the best Amritsari street delicacies), a night palki (tanga ride) to the Golden temple and a tour to a local village.
Ranjit’s Svaasa follows various green eco-friendly practices, such as rainwater harvesting, solar heating panels, natural furnishings, organic cotton bath towels and natural handmade soaps made in-house out of haldi, chandan and besan.
Over the years, the hotel has been recognized with the following awards: Best Boutique Spa at the asiaSpa India awards (2009), Best Luxury Boutique Hotel – India at the World Luxury Hotel awards (2010), FHRAI – Young Hotel Entrepreneur (2012) and Best Boutique Resort at the North India Travel awards (2014).
Rattan Chand Mehra was also involved in many charitable causes—such as a blind school, a TB hospital and a gaushala—all of which continue to run under a Trust till date.
The hotel shop sells candles, coasters, frames, incense sticks and handmade soaps made by children at the blind school.
Overall, a stay at Ranjit's Svaasa is a must-do and possibly the best way to experience true 'Punjabiyat' at this beautiful historic city.
