Spent 2 days at the Lodge that were peaceful and comfortable. We wanted to go touch Ganga and although the lodge offered a 15-minute adventurous walk downhill to the river, it got us to an absolutely clean stretch of the river that had many big rocks on the side to sit with a book or meditate. The small hotel offers... More

There are few experiences that stay with you long after the moments have passed. Our trip to rishikesh and stay at Himalayan Hideaway Lodge is one of those experiences. The beautiful setting of the lodge, quaint rooms, amazing view of the ganga, hospitality of a very friendly staff and many such things made this trip memorable. A special thanks to... More

We stayed for a total of 3 nights. The overall stay, the dinner at the camp under the moonlight, food, service, staff was all par excellence! Our next visit shall definitely be in cooler climates (traveled end-May; 40 C+!!).

We were there end April , looking for a quiet relaxed break. Yes , we did get the quiet ,but in fact a bit too much of It! ! The location is nice no doubt ,but nothing else. We were the only ones at the hotel other than the staff, who tried hard but seemed disinterested. Hardly any of then... More

It has beautiful view of the Ganges and a lovely reading room! We loved our stay and would recommend it to anyone wanting a bit of serene luxury.... More

We loved our experience at the tree of life Himalayan hideaway so much we stayed several times during our 3 months in Rishikesh! It is so peaceful and serene, especially down on their private beach on the River Ganges. This is the perfect place to bask in Mother Nature, meditate and connect with your inner self.

Dear SharonCalvert, Many thanks for your generous review. I think you have captured the essence of our Lodge with your words. Though it is important for me to add here for the sake of others who might read this review that the Lodge is located 19 kms outside of Rishikesh. Not quite in Rishikesh although if you've stayed in Rishikesh... More

My partner and I were thrilled to be assigned to a cottage that gave us a brilliant view of the Holy Ganga. The only sounds were birdsong and the river, 100 meters below. The amenities in the bathroom were terrific and we hated to leave. The meals were delicious and service was great...leisurely but not lazy...and we'd have gladly added... More
