Good place for Delhites

Posted 5 Nov, 2017

The best thing about hotel is it's location. Place is scenic, surrounded by forests and just a walk away from rafting point and main road. Ganga flows by the resort. Staff was very dedicated and cooperative. Another plus point is food. Highly recommended for people who are looking for a peaceful place for a brief vacation. Overall value for money

Delighted stay at the resort

Posted 14 Jun, 2016

I am an environmentalist. I stayed at Chanakya Resort on 4th June for my project work. This resort surrounded by nature's scenic beauty, situated at the prime location with a lot of parking space and is just 300 meters away from the river Ganga, where River Rafting is done. I also did the River Rafting and enjoyed a lot. The resort's rooms are good, balcony having nature's view. Early morning I enjoyed rising sun from the mountains with Tea in resort's lawn. The food was very delicious and hotel staff is very cooperative. Staff made sure to make available everything we have asked for, that is a very nice spirit. In fact, I visited Rishikesh for my research project, I realised that Rishikesh city is too much crowded so I preferred to take a room in an AC hotel at Shivpuri only where I paid Rs. 4400 per day for 3 days but there food and room service was very poor. Even there was no parking for cars only 4-5 cars could be parked, so I had to park my car on the road only. I needed to extend my stay for one more day so after personally checking many hotels at Shivpuri, I finally booked Chanakya Resort from MakeMyTrip and it was worth. I am looking forward to stay in this resort again in future also.

Comfortable stay

Posted 17 Jun, 2016

Due to hustle bustle in Rishikesh city, we group of law officers moved few kilometers ahead reached river rafting area Shivpuri. On the main road we noticed hotel Chanakya Resort surrounded with hills and forest having big parking space and also having 2 generators. In hill area seeing big problem of electricity power cut and parking problem we choose to stay at this hotel. Food was tasty, cleanliness was good, another good part is that hotel is just 200-300 away from Gagna, there we enjoyed river rafting, then went to Neer Garh waterfalls which was just 6 km from hotel. Staff of the hotel were very polite and caring, we had to leave for jolly grant airport and cab was delayed, then hotel manager arrange to drop us at airport in his SUV, thanks to them.

The hotel is neat and clean

Posted 14 Mar, 2013

This hotel is situated at hill highway is at the perfect location if one wants to stay for river rafting and still not have to drill a hole in one's pocket. The hotel is neat and clean, clean rooms and bathrooms. Kingsize beds, good furniture, it's a nice quaint little place where you would want to spend time indoors or just lazing around reading a book, watching the surrounding hill n forest , sunset, etc. The staff is friendly and always ready to help. The service was also good. The hotel rooms have big glass windows for good view of the valley. The only thing is, do given them a phone call and check for availability of rooms before you go coz this hotel almost always is full during river rafting season.It would be the best place to stay at Ganga river Rafting zone Shivpuri, Rishikesh, Devbhumi !!!.
