A trip to Aranyam is a matter of chance. It is tucked far from the hustle of the city noise; even away from the herds of cluttered beach resort. This resort takes 'luxury, in the lap of nature' and cliches like pamper your senses very seriously. Your mind is devoid of the usual grind and all you see is yourself reflecting on nature and the smooth flowing river. Since my first visit to the resort i have made many more...never again as a matter of chance. You need to be here to see what its like.
Oh and go catch some fish if you are around.

“Location...View...Serenity....Luxury...Service...scores on all fronts”
Getting to the resort can be an arduous task but then don't they say....there was never anything worthwhile achieved without much toil. The entire journey to the resort can be just what you want to make of it, it can seem a long drive or it can be a very nice journey going through various turns just like life.
Reaching the resort definitely refreshes you completely and believe me since it did the same to us despite the fact that we had been on the road for almost 16 hours since our bus broke down twice on the way and we took multiple breaks as well but when we reached there at 10 pm in the night, it was a nice warm welcome and the small downhill trek combined with crossing the stream in the dark was a mini-adventure in itself. There was a bon-fire and snacks waiting to be devoured and they were delicious. There's a facility for DJ session and there was one going on with a big gang of young office-goers if there are takers for that as well, although we were pretty happy just being in the lap of nature.
The rooms that we had taken were not tents but the luxury rooms, which had neat and clean interiors with contemporary decor. There were LCD TVs, hot water in the rooms, proper bed/bedding which was really welcome after a long and tiring journey. I remember sleeping like a log and waking up completely refreshed.
The next day saw us lazing around in the stream with kids having fun in the water initially and then the grass clearing of the resort. There are possibilities of trek around the place and the staff will take you for rock-climbing/rappelling and other activities nearby as per your requirement.
The approach to the resort/road is either through the bridge or a bit of climb. The location is very nice as if the resort sits in a valley in the midst of the hills. A perfect getaway for a long weekend to realx in the midst of nature.

Waking up to the sound of the river water and chirping of the birds is exactly what can make you forget your worries. Aranyam River Retreat made that happen for me.The weekend spent there was totally worth it.Rafting was something I'll remember all my life.The food is great,specially the snacks served.With activities like Golf chipping and putting,it gives us something new to try our hands on.The rooms as well as the resort are extremely comfortable.
Aranyam River Retreat is the perfect getaway for peace,quiet and fun.
“Fun and adventure filled place”
It is a nice place to visit with friends or family. The scenic beauty is awsome, given u get into a deep valley with river flowing just in front of the resort. Further, the forests around this place add more to it. The hospitality is commendable. If one is looking for a different experience, then he can definitely consider this place

“Wonderful location, perfect for a family - Kids, youngsters and Adults”
Aranyam is a beautiful resort on the banks of Hyule river, tucked away from the city's hustle and bustle. The adventure starts right from the beginning with one having to walk across an old bridge to cross the river and reach the resort. Scenic location, beautiful greens to walk on, cool refreshing river water to take a dip in and sumptuous food served make it a perfect holiday destination especially if one is travelling with kids. Service is great with the staff making an extra effort to make one feel cared for.
‘Aranyam’ standing high on the bank of gentle mountain stream with glorious views. Two days stay is unforgettable. This thoughtfully build serene property has endless pleasures to offer its visitors. From Bungee jumping to river romance to delicious cuisines, I couldn’t have asked for more. Staff was friendly and hospitality was fantastic.Strongly Recommended

“Amazing Customer Service”We all have heard that, a place is made of the people there. And, I am extremely delighted with the customer service and dedication of the people there. Everyone was 100 percent committed to customer satisfaction and delight.
I went to Aranyam as a part of our outdoor team outing programs. I am extremely delighted with the location, facilities and staff.
I have made it a point that, If it is Rishikesh It has to be Aranyam. Great job team, on delivering to your commitments.

We stayed at Aranyam during an outbound training programme for our team, in association with Confederation of Indian Industry. The training programme was very meaningful and highly appreciated by everyone. As about the resort, we had a very comfortable stay. The food was good and we were very well taken care of. The adventure sports, activities and the yoga session too were well organised and enjoyed by one and all.
