Fabulous place and worth the drive to stay for few days in natures lap. Great service, Good Hygine in the hotel rooms. I would recommend this place to others. I will definitely go back again in river rafting season. For those who want to stay in Tents, they also have tents on premise.

Far from the maddening crowd, this is a great place to escape to. The rooms are beautifully done up, overlooking the river (Hyule). The resort has large sprawling lawns which also boast of a few camps, if you’re upto it. There are lots of activities you can indulge in, whether its playing badminton, cycling on the hills, golf putting, trekking... More

The resort itself is good but the people managing it are just amazing. So courteous and helpful you won't even believe. Food is amazing and the hosts will do their best to keep you happy. The only issue is getting there. It's quite far off and I advise that you reach the resort before sunset. The road near the resorts... More

Experienced this property on the long weekend break in March. It was a sort of family and friends get together cum reunion with our friends coming from different cities. Despite the mad rush in Rishikesh on those dates, we managed to get our own quiet, fun filled and relaxing hamlet in the form of Aranyam. Special mention to the awesome... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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. The magical natural surroundings and the 450 feet water front of Hyule for safe splashing around by the whole family. Good food and proximity to dozens of places of tourist interest. Please Note: Aranyam does not have a reserved private parking lot, owing to the location that is on the other bank of River Hyule. Guests may park their vehicles at a predesignated area and need to hike down about 250 meters to reach the lobby. Porters available on request for baggage. ... more   less
