I am an avid traveller and adventurer. Mostly I venture out as a backpacker, however came across this quiet, peaceful yet contrastingly adventurous hotspot on one of my recent biking trips to Rishikesh. I stayed for four nights in a safari tent here, which was nothing luxurious but was more than enough for me. Had a comfortable stay throughout and... More

Wow wow wow and wow is all i can say about this awesome place, the distance from Laxman Jhula is around 16kms towards bungee point and trust me its truly worth it its just awesome, though recent flood destroyed the path leading to the premise but then you have your personal shallow river flowing and rooms are spacious and comfortable.Staff...

I would like to recommend this activotel (the fancy term used for adventure resorts these days) for all those who wish to gently introduce their kids and family to the wonderful world of outdoors. I had been an active trekker during college days however my family could rarely experience outdoors due to the hustle bustle of corporate and urban life.... More

I am an avid bird watcher and a professional photographer. Booked a week-long stay at this resort on a friend’s recommendation. This truly is a bird watcher’s paradise and one of the best hidden natural gem in the treasure chest of Himalayas. Spotted and photographed over sixty types of avian beauties. The premium plus room that I stayed in is... More

As per me the best part of holiday here is the bridge over river Hule (hope I spelt it correctly), which is both exotic and photogenic. Our room was very comfortable, although the extra bed could be better! The amenities are very thoughtfully placed, the dining facilities are not overtly fancy but much more than what any sensible person should... More

Great experience of staying at Aranyam recently with about forty odd colleagues from my office. We had come here for a team building programme for three days and stayed in safari tents. While we had visited Rishikesh many a times for rafting and camping, but this was totally a different experience. While the tents were comfortable in every way, the... More

We came here to celebrate our third wedding anniversary and had booked a honeymoon package. At first my wife was apprehensive about my choice of destination, but then we were too bored of the conventional hill stations and beaches. The resort, its location and the facilities are all top class. The staff made us feel very comfortable and cared for.... More

Stayed at this resort with a group of four families and checked in six river facing rooms a couple of months back. All of us enjoyed our two days stay very much. Heartfelt thanks to the resident manager for making us feel at home and the kitchen team for dishing out sumptuous and delicious food for us. Everyone in the... More

When it comes to romantic getaways, the hills have their own charm. We have traveled to dozens of offbeat destinations across India and abroad, be it beaches or the mountains and our two nights holiday at Aranyam shall certainly be one of the most memorable one. Special thanks to Mr. Rana, the resident manager for making our stay so comfortable... More

This was my first visit to Aranyam, however fourth one with the company that runs this resort. Stayed here in safari tents for three days on an outbound training programme, and boy! what a location - wild, serene and captivating. The facilities are much more than one should expect in the outdoors and enough for a comfortable stay and active... More
