Located at walking distance from Lakshman Jhula, Divine Resort is a nice place to spend a couple of nights. We stayed in executive family rooms which can easily accommodate four adults on two queen size beds. Besides, the ACs are effective. View from the balcony is amazing and is the major highlight of the resort. The other highlight is the lift in the new block. The glass wall of the lift facing the river gives an amazing experience. One can also access the riverfront from the resort itself, by walking down about 100 feet. The stairs and the ramps are not too punishing, although at the first look it appears a bit intimidating. Sitting at riverfront with Ganges flowing in all its might, with rafters moving at a very close distance is a great experience. The rafting route is right in front of the hotel and is very good location for photography. The dining hall and the food (Veg. only) are great. The massage centre is passable and relaxing especially after rafting and walking. The terrace is a nice place to relax. The snooker table and the cues are not up to the mark, but with kids of all hues having free hand, nothing more could be expected. The staff is courteous and welcoming. The resort has an attached coffee shop with good ambience. The coffee is good but the bakery products are ok.
On the flip side are the exhaust system of the toilets, lack of light above the dressing mirror and the taxi services offered by the resort. The resort seems to have only one Tata Indigo and if you ask for more than one vehicle, the resort gets them from the open market, at slightly higher rates. With very bad traffic conditions during peak season, one is advised to keep a cushion of 90 minutes. However, one is still advised to rely on the taxi service offered by the resort as especially during peak season one may find hard to get a cab in the market.
All in all, a great place for a weekend sojourn.
