Fabulous location, great people to stay with. Clean rooms and environment, decent food, somewhat bland for Indians as they cater a lot to foreigners and expats in India. You have a view of the river from all rooms and you can go down a rocky path on to the banks. Wish that the path to the river was more accessible.... More

Thank you for your visit and do come again. Thank you also for aptly describing all our services and for recognising the professionalism of our Rafting Team, Himalayan River Runners. We will try and get our cook to interact a little more with the guests so that spicey vs blandness could be addressed a little better! More

We stayed here towards end of may and in rooms downhill at the very end of property.The property is another 5km after shivpuri with no boards along the way to guide you, that is probably the only bit that disappoints. We could hear Ganges flowing along with birds chirping. The rooms were well done, large enough and tastefully done. Each... More

This is one fabulous lodge (NOT A HOTEL) hidden in the foothills of the Himalayas and along the Ganga. It's clean, friendly, served excellent food, filter coffee, well trained courteous staff, very helpful humble manager, fantastic trekking and rafting team... Each cottage overlooks the river. No TV which is great. The owners take special interest in everything on board this... More

Situated in the hills just outside Shivpuri with the Ganges roaring down below. Lovely cottages housing self contained rooms. Clean bathrooms and hot running water. A bit of bathroom toiletries would have been helpful.

We had a wonderful weekend at the Himalayan Hideaway. Our trip was organized by Himalayan River Runners, who also own the lodge. Last year we had stayed at their riverside camp, which was also a phantastic experience. This time we stayed at the Lodge, since the camps are closed. Great property with old world charm, good food and very courteous... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Himalayan Hideaway is located 19kms from Rishikesh on the Devprayag in the Himalayan foothills, surrounded by a mixed forest with the Ganga flowing past. There are 10 rooms scattered over the hillside. We are not a resort or a hotel. We are simply a Lodge. The rooms are built and designed like a Colonial Forest Rest House. Our rooms are named after legendary climbers and explorers who have climbed in the Garhwal Himalaya. Our garden is indigenous and planted with only the native species of the area. No exotics. If you are looking to getaway from the city and unwind, have a desire to be in nature, want to step off the treadmill of city life for a couple of days, then the Himalayan Hideaway might be what you are looking for. Himalayan Hideaway is for those who want a leisurely and maybe not a lazy retreat. We offer white water rafting, bird watching, short and long hikes and Yoga. The food is wholesome and plenty. In short we offer you a warm and welcome retreat in nature. ... more   less
