Aranyam is a wonderful weekend getaway. Drive down to Rishikesh from Delhi, then turn away from the traffic and the hustle bustle of the National Highway 58. Along a tiny little river called Heval (a tributary of the Ganges) you will find this warm little resort. The staff is extremely hospitable. Every request is entertained with utmost courtesy. The evening... More

The location is fabulous just next to the stream. the rooms neat and clean, I dint feel that there was anything else I could have asked for. Good food!!!!! Too sum... More

A little hard to find in the dark, but the adventure starts from the walk down to the resort itself!!! Dirt road, cable bridge over a stream and down the stone steps. Very thoughtful to have drinks ready at the reception for us. We occupied one tent and one room, both overlooking the stream. Slept to the sound of flowing... More

Had done the booking through an online portal. My suggestion to all the future travellers, especially those coming with kids would be to talk to the resort manager or one of their marketing offices directly before coming and getting all your doubts clarified. Being a control freak of sorts, after booking the package through a travel portal I got in... More

Aranyam is well located near nature and wilderness and is a great adventure playground, however you need to be sure beforehand if it is your kind of place. We were a big group of friends and stayed in tents. The whole experience was pleasant and memorable for us – good meals, comfortable stay and helpful staff. Would like to share... More

The Resort was very comfortable and it was a pleasure staying in the resort with very cooperative staff. Excellent food on made to order basis and as per choice and very tasty food prepared by the chef. Look forward to visit again very soon. only suggestion the Resort should have access by Car.

Aranyam could be an outdoorsy person’s best dream come true and a couch potato’s nightmare. Come here if you love the magical outdoors, walking, trekking, adventure sports, birds and greenery and of course – water! At the same time it may not be the best pick for conventional hill station crowd who can’t do without markets and shopping. I stayed... More

An amazing getaway and pleasant break from the hustle bustle of cities and crowded hill stations. We came here to spend quality time with each other and our own selves. We had opted for yoga sessions that were specially organised for the two of us each morning. A big thank you to the very courteous retreat incharge there who offered... More

Rishikesh typically has a perception of being either a yoga destination or a river rafting place. One holiday at Aranyam may add another experience to that, if not change the other two completely, i.e. Romance!! Stayed in a river facing room here with my partner for four days and three nights. The meditative sound of the river flowing by, the... More
