MY friend and I booked 4 nights at Banyan by the Ganges- and it was the best 4 nights of our entire 3 week trip through India. If you want to see the real India, unspoiled, wild animals, spiritual adventure with amazing staff and great food? This is your spot. We hiked, we fished, we explored temples, we met locals, we loved every second of our time there. The Ganges is so clean up there, it was amazing to dip in. Only one hour from Rishikesh (the road is a bit wild, but totally worth it), the water is jade green and surrounded by mountains. Accommodations are great- we woke up every morning to an amazing view and sounds of the river. The staff are second to none- I especially want to call out Nitin and Ashesh. Nitin was our guide and made sure we were having the most fun possible, while being just an amazing dude all around. He really made our time there amazing- leading us to a temple, stories by the fire pit, fishing with us. He was great- same as all the staff. Ashesh made sure we were always full, and kept the tea flowing. Food was amazing- I can't say enough good things about this place. If you want an actual adventure in India, go here. I will be back for sure.…

What an outstanding place. In the middle of the mountains, with Ganges flowing by the side of it. Quiet and nice. Excellent hospitality. Extremely cordial staff members. I never believed such a place exist within the heavily commercialized Himalayas.

Luxury tents with all modern amenities. Has the most scenic sitting area. Private space to enjoy the view of Ma Ganga flowing by. Visited Devprayag. Mountain trail and bird watching. Guide Nitin was great. Place is very safe. Walking around the property is a great pastime. The landscape is beautiful. Unlimited food which is very tasty and has variety. Just like home cooked. Self service tea/coffee station. Every staff member was caring, and welcoming, soft spoken and so helpful. The owner Mr. Mani Shankar Ghosh was extremely hospitable. Kudos to him for the hospitality which we enjoyed and never imagined would before we visited. Value for money. Hope to visit again soon.

Well this was a suddenly planned trip and fortunately a riverside room was available.And words are few to describe the mind blowing experience we have had during our two nights stay at the resort. If we would have had the chance then could have stayed longer. The sound of the Ganges, the chirping birds, the always smiling and ready to help staffs and the sumptuous food- it was all perfect. But the most thrilling part of our stay was the white water rafting. Although am a non swimmer and my 10 year old was also accompanying us, both Aniket and the person who was with us on the raft (sorry I do not recollect his name) took care of everything and what an experience it was!! Next we were taken to a nearby waterfall by Nitin and we just had helluva good time!! In the evening we even went out for fishing which was fun. The resort dog Kibi is very friendly and a sweetheart. My daughter still misses her😞 If you are reading this and you are a nature lover then Banyan by the Ganges is a must visit. It’s a 20mins drive from Devprayag.We hope to be back soon 😊…

I brought my eight year old son here in early April and we have not stopped reminiscing about it since we've been home. We live in California and frequently spend time in the wilderness but this was something special. The sound of the river is a beautiful and constant backdrop to every conversation, and there are endless things to do - rafting, fishing, strolling or hiking. The staff here is very attentive and generous, and many many extra accommodations for us - jet lagged, and not familiar (especially my son!) with Indian cuisine. I highly recommend making the effort to visit this spot, and letting it work its magic on you!!

Had a fabulous stay for 6 nights. Did a wide range of activities including trekking, white water rafting and mountain biking, all led by the excellent guides. The scenery and experience was fabulous. And the effort made to make my holiday experience special was truly fabulous.

This beautiful place.... is a full package of serenity and adventure and if you're looking for both then, This is the place to go! Its far away from the hustle and bustle of the city and it provides a picturesque view of the Ganges. The clear sky and the sound of the river Ganga adds so much tranquility to the place. The people are friendly and helpful and they have a cute GSD, Kiwi, my little one loved playing with her. Will definitely see you again "Banyan By The Ganges"

Rishikesh has many camps, but quality is poor. This one is 3 hours away but is of supreme quality. The place is tastefully done up. The location is breathtaking, food is brilliant and staff is very warm and attentive. We were a group 6 adults and 6 kids and stayed for two nights. While the place has lot of activities, one could just sit in winter sunshine and read a book all day. Our kids played sports, walked upto the Ganges and did a trek to the nearby village. It’s a place to rewind, relax and detox. All of us were sad while leaving the place. Looking forward to comeback

If you visit Devprayag purely from a pilgrimage POV, we recommend you stay in the main town. Or visit on an excursion from Rishikesh/ Pauri/ Haridwar. However, if you desire to have the best of all worlds, then we highly recommend Banyan by The Ganges (BBTG). BBTG is named after a banyan tree that stands on the banks of the Ganga. It is located on the Devprayag – Satpuli road, in a hamlet called Vyas Ghat. Everything about it was captivating. BBTG premises were well – maintained. The view of the Ganga & accessibility to it is simply excellent. Listening to the sound of the flowing river made us feel close to nature. (Not having network helped too!) BBTG has a lot of activities for its guests. We indulged in kayaking, bird watching, angling & visited the waterfall & Danda Nagraja Mandir. All were good fun! Deepak & Anil ensured we'd a good time. We were in the Riverfront Cottage. The cottages are Swiss Tents & thus, give you the feel of glamping. Though they are in a row, there is ample privacy. Every cottage has a sit out ideal for meditating or simply soaking in nature. Our cottage had all the basic amenities & was comfortable. Housekeeping was on point. BBTG has a lounge & a restaurant serving finger – licking cuisines. Over all our meals, we demolished dishes like Kadhi, Chocolate Cake, Malai Chicken, Methi Paratha, Pahadi Daal, Aloo Baigan Capsicum, Puri & Aloo Sabzi, and so many more. Our compliments to Chef Mukesh! Servers Ashish & Ravinder ensure we ate well, always attentive to what we may need in the next moment. All the staff members ensured we had a brilliant stay. The feature that seals the deal for our future visits – BBTG is pet – friendly! Our Two Cents - 1. It may be difficult to access Devprayag or other nearby attractions if you do not have your own vehicle. But BBTG can arrange that for you. 2. BBTG is better suited for adults – couples, groups of friends, people with pets etc. 3. There is neither network nor TV nor Wi-Fi at BBTG. If you are a sucker for these, this hotel will not be the right choice for you.…

It is one place I want to visit again and again. Our trip in April 2022 was mesmerising. After a bit detour from Devprayag, we geolocated the property in sometime. Once there, the nature, food, fun and sports were awaiting for us. So much so that we decided to extend our stay by a night and the office in Delhi obliged with the booking. A place and the yummy food with great hospitality. Keep up the good work!
