Firstly, wish to thank Mr. Chauhan for his warm hospitality. We stayed here in early May 2014 for two nights.They had already made a schedule for our stay, a small trek, white water rafting on Ganges and a visit to attend the famous Ganga Aarti at Rishikesh. The food and services were excellent. Food - If given a chance would... More

I spent two nights at this adventure resort at the worst possible time of the year (weather is crazy hot in June second week), however, Aranyam and its staff made sure that we have the best time of our lives. Every wish of ours was duly met and at the end of two days we felt as if we belonged... More

The location of this resort is unique – with a beautiful water body in the front and a forest as the backdrop. All the rooms and tents face this stream called Hyule (that is apparently a tributary of Ganges). While the rooms are plush and very nice, we chose to stay in the tents (and saved some extra money as... More

I have visited Rishikesh many times – with family, friends and office colleagues, but my idea of Rishikesh was limited to Shivpuri and its beach camps or the Ashrams of Laxman Jhula. I am glad the stereotype broke for me this time and am happy that there are people setting up resorts and ‘un hotel’ hotels in newer and unheard... More

I stayed at Aranyam in mid July along with my friends. The resort manager and staff played a major role in making my stay comfortable and the overall holiday experience a good one. Their efforts, despite the remote and very offbeat location of the property, are commendable. In addition to the personalized attention given (to best of their abilities) to... More

Recently we planned a trip to Rishikesh and the holiday was basically meant for relaxation and doing nothing. We chose Aranyam after getting positive recommendations from our friends (they had attended a music fest there) and were certainly not disappointed. This resort is a boutique property right on the banks of a mountain stream (tributary of Ganga). We absolutely loved... More

We went to Aranyam in the month of May and reached at around 4 am! Smiling faces and warm welcome at 4 in morning was something unexpected, the first impression was outstanding, even more than the place. View from the room was an add-on to the courteous hospitality by the friendly staff. What a great place, warm & prompt service... More

I along with my family stayed at property in the month of June. The experience was amazing and satisfying.Although the weather was a little humid yet the stay was very comfortable. Also nothing matches the mesmerizing view of the mountains and the forests in the monsoons with lush greenery and floating clouds all around. Everything including the stay, food, rooms,... More

A trip to Rishikesh has always been special for me because of its location. But this trip was absolutely delightful thanks to our stay at Aranyam for three days in May end this year. The road journey from Delhi to Rishikesh was a mixed experience - some patches are real smooth but others were so crowded one wished there were... More

Aranyam: River Retreat is the latest nature hideout close to Rishikesh. Located on the banks of River Hyule, a tributary of Ganges, with over 450 feet river front, Aranyam: is completely surrounded by captivating nature and liberating peace. 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. White Water Rafting on Ganges, Mountain Biking, Trekking, Moonlight Trails, Bungee Jumping, Flying Fox, Canyon Swing, Sightseeing of Rishikesh and Haridwar, attending the famous Ganga Aarti; and much more is available around Aranyam.Reason To Visit:The wide variety of recreation for all ages and tastes.
