“Definately the most awful place I have EVER stayed at”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

Don't know where to begin, and once I do .....don't know where & how to start.
For all that and more, one first has to find the sign which tells you of its location (there is one sign-board & that too hidden behind another).
The food would be a welcome change, if you love the dishes they serve you in hospitals.....
Evening snacks is cold oil drenched pakoras, and that too is served just before dinner.

Co-ordination between the rafting bit and the resort is nil.......as they do not have their own rafts; and they have no staff that accompanies you to the point where there is a supposed pick up arranged (again supposedly) to take you for rafting.

In short, everything (and I assure you I have been lenient) from the moment one arrives at the camp till the moment you get picked up by the people providing you the rafting experience sucks hands down.

Oh, I have to mention that if you are looking for a peaceful retreat.......this place rocks; just rocks with the perfect pub/disco experience. Loud music doled out till midnight with drunk people & booze bottles galore.

If I have missed out on somethings.......it is only because I have wasted enough of my time already......

ENJOY

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2012

It was an extremely satisfying experience.
Location: Exotic Outskirts of a remote kumaoni village (nothing like the modern villages of Haryana and Punjab). Next to a river bed that has less water than the main Ganga river and between majestic foot hills of himalayas...WoW. The location was good for us as we had small children and we could be a little less worried about the children falling in to the river all the time.
Service: Very personalized service, the staff im mostly local so you get a feel of a farm house at times.
Food: Nothing like a hotel although is very close to home cooked food. Make sure you let the staff know of any dietry requirements in advance as they will cater to your special needs. I have to mention the snacks that flow around the bon fire in the evenings. Yumm they were just delicious and endless.
Activities: We planned our trip in advance so each day was full of activities. They arrange white water rafting, bungee jumping treks and the resort itself has a lot of stuff to do. Oh did I mention the swimming pool in the resort.
This place is definitely worth going to and reclaim yourself being so close to the nature.

Room Tip: Go with the tents instead of the huts they are cheaper and more comfortable

We had an amazing experience at Second life resorts. Although, the resort may be a little distant from the river bed, but overall its amazing. The facilities at the resort are nice. We really liked the hospitality of the resort staff.
The sports and the pool facilities are something to watch out for as we liked playing pool volleyball during afternoon time.
Electricity is a little bit of concern as one needs refrigerator to freeze those beers.
Overall the resort is very nice. 4 out of 5.

Room Tip: May be one can look for a resort that is near to river bed as one can enjoy those cool breezes throu...

this place is exactly not in jungle, it is in the fields between small mountains. there are lot of artificial things and the natural beauty is totally missing. Its also not near Rishikesh. By any vehicle it is 26 kms from rishikesh, they claim 13 kms, but thats from laxman jhula, and one cannot cross the river from that place.

Food is also not good, Its looks more like a resort that one finds on the outskirts of delhi
