“Awesome Property. Great staff.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

Aalia haridwar is one of the best leisure hotels that we have visited so far. Everything about this resort is perfect - starting from housekeeping, food, courteous and helpful staff. Very nice view of river ganga. Best part of our trip, though, was the safari trip to Rajaji National Park. It is very close to the hotel. We took jeep from hotel to go for safari. We were accompanied by Mr. Subhash who was our guide. Mr. Subhash was extremely patient during the entire trip to spot the animals. He took a lot of pain to ensure that we had an excellent experience. Overall - a great resort, very nice staff and a must for revisit.

Room Tip: All rooms are nice. Some have a better view of Ganga and some not.

This was my second visit to Aalia with family. The property is located in a serene and peaceful spot right on the banks of the Ganga and is very well maintained. The quality of fixtures in the rooms is top class and service is always delivered with a smile even when they are stretched out as it happens on busy days. The food quality is good and the buffet has an adequate variety of dishes available.

My son wanted to learn swimming and the 4.5 feet deep pool here was the perfect place for him to do so especially with the caring staff here to guide him. My son also learned 'surya namaskaar' by attending the yoga class here and thoroughly enjoyed the jungle safari, archery and ATV rides.

We'll definately be back!

It would not be wrong to say that there are n numbers of luxury hotels in Rishikesh, even thou the hotel of Aalia is famous among all. The warm hospitality, excellent accommodation services and fine dining facilities of this hotel is phenomenal and when it comes to my experience, I had a great time here.

Room Tip: Ask rooms near to ball room it has nice view from there

Pros

Aalia is ultra luxurious resort located on serene and untouched bank of River Ganga. Villas with private Jacuzzi on the terrace, library, living room in the sprawling property was the height of luxury in Haridwar. Staff was courteous and enthusiastic. Kids enjoyed the most. Food was very good and was made as per our taste. Swimming Pool was very well maintained and we had a great time swimming in infinity pool right on the bank of shallow and clean river Ganga. It is a huge property with villas spreading adequately far from one another, giving desired privacy. It is perfectly maintained property.

Cons

It is 12 Kms far from Hardwar and 40 Kms far from Rishikesh. If you have plans for rafting, this location is a bit inconvenient.

Room Tip: try to get first floor room which as terrace overlooking the river bank.

A truly mystical trip to the Ganges. Aalia is a great resort and the staff makes you feel right at home.

It's a great destination with lots of stuff to do around. From jeep safaris organized by the resort to rajaji national park to rafting trips to rishikesh. It's got something for everyone.

I went back to Aalia with a big group including kids for two days, just checked out today. Even though its summer the evenings were lovely with a gentle breeze when sitting by the river. We did the Ganga evening Aarti organised by the hotel, in the hotel as its on the banks. It was so personal and just perfect. The kids had a wonderful time in the pool in the late afternoon / evening and even managed to go rafting. Staff was as the last time - very efficient and hospitable and the property has been well maintained. Just up yesterday are cabanas by the river which are cosy and give one a further sense of isolation and privacy. Great addition to an already great resort.

The resort is about 10-13 kms from haridwar, that's a good option for travellers who do not want to stay in haridwar. The rooms or cottages have three variants, which are priced according to the proximity to the river. Which is hardly visible from the rooms they charge exorbitantly for calling them river facing. The bathrooms are basic like a hospital building. The furniture is the room is fab india style teak.. You invariably get a feeling of staying at a relatives house. Definately not a resort interior. Also there is hardly enough furniture in the rooms.if atall you would like to done in the room, there is hardly space to put plates and cups and no place to sit and eat in the rooms.unaesthetically done interiors.. All and all a very unpleasant and EXPENSIVE experience. You are better off paying that money for an ACTUAL five star resort instead.. This is a mistake. Stay away from this place is my genuine advise. Unless you want to pay doubly for a normal neighbourhood hotel property.
