The food was great and the environment superb for a relaxed family holiday. The chef was kind enough to cook whatever... More

This resort is about 15-20 odd kilometers away from the hustle and bustle of central Rishikesh. The property is clean, the staff is courteous and friendly and the exotic setting of the location is enchanting. As per me, the best bit is ease of access to multiple adventure sports and sightseeing options nearby. There is a bungee jumping station at... More

This was a beyond expectations stay. Starting from the time we met the manager (Mr. Shobha Ram if I remember the name correctly) who showed us great respect..right to the location, rooms, scenic view and food. We got a personalized Yoga session for ourselves, and I feel this is one of the best places in India for long haul yoga... More

We camped at Aranyam recently for three nights. Exotic location, friendly hospitality and simple yet very tasty food. The stay in the tents was pretty comfortable and frankly speaking, above our expectations since our idea of camping at Rishikesh was the beach camps of Shivpuri. It was totally a value for money deal. We also added on rafting, hiking, trekking... More

This was a good experience for us. Amazing activities combined with good food. This is no five star hotel but who would want that when your purpose is to get in touch with nature. The service was exemplary and the front-desk was helpful in materializing our plans

Aranyam: provides a rare combination of multiple recreation and destinations in close proximity.Those who seek a relaxing holiday, there can be no better option than being in midst of the nature so unhampered. You can just laze around in a hammock, or read a book right in the middle of River Hyule or just enjoy an afternoon siesta that you have been missing over the years. Rejuvenate with Yoga & Meditation or pamper yourself with Therapeutic & Detox Massages. So it leaves little to be desired by anyone who seeks to connect with nature and spirituality.Aranyam: is amidst the thick woods of Rajaji National Park, so early in the morning or around dusk, one can find a great wide array of wild life in this area. The best round the year retreat around Delhi, Aranyam also has Golf Greens, for amateur chipping and putting recreation. The list of activities you can do here is mesmerising and seems to be never ending.
