Nestled in the mountains, a 45 minute drive from Rishikesh, and right on the banks of the river Hyule , it was a perfect setting for a long weekend holiday in early October and we loved each minute. The property is very well appointed and although we stayed in the luxurious air conditioned rooms with a spacious balcony overlooking the... More

One of the best holidays I had in a Aranyam River Retreat, excellent setting and very well maintained, all rooms have huge full wall size windows, which give you the best view of river & beauty of nature. The hotel was surrounded with crystal clear river & mountain. The view from the room’s balcony was excellent. The food was awesome;... More

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
