Just back from our trip to Aalia. The hotel has a spectacular view of the Ganges from most of the rooms. Its just so peaceful to sit out in the open in the evenings with just nothing around you but the sound of nature. The lawns are stunning and very well kept and manicured - I did my barefoot walks in the evenings on the lawn.
The evening aarti on the banks of the Ganges is very quaint and personal.
The rooms are so comfortable and very well equipped - from Tata Sky, i pod docking stations, a very comfy bed with a choice of thick & thin pillows, bedroom slippers, hair dryer, shower gel, shampoo and all toiletries in the well lit huge bathrooms. Most important was that they have enough plug points to charge your phone/ i pad etc.
The villas and the hotel are so well designed that they give you complete privacy from the other guests.
The food was great - the Indian food is yummy and probably better than the western food. The buffet breakfast had a fair variety and was well cooked and tasty. they have a very well stocked bar that has a lovely warm and homely feeling.
Dheeraj, who handles the hotel on location was very helpful as well as the rest of the staff. Very helpful, smiling and non obtrusive - the perfect combination when you are on a vacation.
The drive from the hotel to Rishikesh is SPECTACULAR! It takes you through Rajaji National Park and pass the dam - a must must do when you come to Aalia. I would really suggest Aalia as a family, couple, friends, solo holiday.
