Anandlok Resort enjoys a god-given locational advantage. Tucked on a narrow plateau amidst peaks reaching out for the heavens, a short boat ride brings you here from the Srinagar motorway. The forceful Ganges flows by the resort with terrace farms on another. Our cottages and meditation room are made in middle of such tranquility and pristine nature.

It was a wonderful stay in Anand Lok. As soon as we entered into this space...I feel like it's Shiva Energy... I called this divine place 'SHIVLOK'... One can also feel a very serene, peaceful ambiance here.
The rooms are very clean and nit. Food is very energetic. The staff is also very kind. They make you feel very special.
Especially Jagdish and Vinod Dada are very very keen on their service.
One can visit Bhairva Baba Temple and Pashupati Nath Temple here for some kind of mystic experience

to stay in Anand Lok can change your life when u are open for that.
The energy in this place is so pure and calm. The love is everwhere , the staf is amazing ful of care and love
The food also is made with love and care.
The walk to Mother Ganga is so beatifull butterfly everywhere and the sound of the birds and Mother Ganga. ❤️.A bath in the Holy Ganga makes you calm its a healing energy.
I was here in 2013 3 months .And this year 2 months
Its so good to be here 🙏🏼
You have to be aware its a walk up yo come here but also a beatifull walk.
Its not close to Rishikish but i take the bus ore a lift.
There are villages here u can visit. The people here are honest and pure .
Its at the feet of the Hymalaya. With the stream of Mother Ganga u hear from your balcony .
A place for those people who like silence and meditation. And be away from the busy life and crowded places .to be with nature and yourself

Beautiful peaceful settings, great yoga shalas and within a nice short walk to a small quiet beach. Wonderful staff, surroundings and views. Vegetarian food from own garden. Comfy beds plus we had a balcony with a view to the Ganga. Bathrooms modest but everything worked. Lovely people!

I have recently returned from Anandlok where I stayed for 6 days with a friend. The adventure begins when one arrives on the main road and has to clamber down rocks and take a boat across the Ganges and then climb a path up to the Hotel which is perched above the Ganges. Everywhere there are views of mountains and the Ganges sings away with her powerful voice below. One can sit on the terrace above Ganga and eat the wholesome and simple food whilst drinking in the beauty. The staff are extremely helpful and attentive and the huts simple and clean. We went in late Dec early Jan so nights and mornings cold but attention is now being paid to make sure that the rooms are draft proof and heating adequate. The gardens, both flower and veg are laid out in a way that delights the eyes and heart. At the heart of Anandlok is its admirable charity work. I would definitely go again.

The place is a heaven on earth. It is so picturesque, divine and a peaceful resort. The best part is that it is away from the hustle and bustle of rishikesh nestled in the base of mountains. After driving 22 kms further from Rishikesh, one has to take a boat ride to cross the river and reach across to this soulful resort. Me and my family thoroughly enjoyed our stay by getting into the river, the water is pure, green and ice cold which relaxes the body and the soul. We indulged in jungle walks, star gazing, gossiping and quite dinners in the aery restaurent overlooking the ganges and the serpentine mountain roads. The night view from the restaurent of the vehicles passing through on the road with their head lights on gives a thrilling experiences as one can see flashes of moving lights appearing from no where. There is a yoga centre, landscaped gardens, paddy fields, a temple and nature's blissfully open skies. The best part is that you are away from the material world of TV, News papers, Phones and daily chores. The food is lovely, service is excellent, nicely laid out lawns, well maintained paths, flowers in plenty, surroundings just great. Morning walk into the nearby jungles and sipping of tea, over looking the mountains and the whisteling river amids the chirping of birds gives an instant high. I must say that it was an wonderful experience and I felt completely relaxed, recharged and rejuvenated. Must visit for those who wants to get away from the maddening crowds of the city and are looking for peace of mind. Truly the name of the resort "Anand Lok" lives to its meaning of being blissful.

Anand Lok is a perfect place for those who want to spend some quite time in a comfortable, scenic place in Himalayas, overlooking the ever beautiful Ganga. It is easy to access - just 22 Kms from Rishikase. Very comfortable rooms, good food, warm, eager to serve staff.

You should be fit enough to climb a small hillock to reach the place.

The resort, situated amid lush green forests and mountains, is probably the best way to spend one's weekend. But if this translates into a resort that only has forests and mountains, it is probably not for you. I went there with my husband and a toddler and enjoyed myself. Day one was spent watching the breathtaking view from the room, day two was spent lazing on the sand along the Ganges that flows around 200 mts downhill. Third day we were back and happily so. While the resort is beautiful, staying there with family and a kid for too long might not be a wonderful idea. Without a tv or another soul to interact with, it could get a little eerie after a while. The climb uphill is steep and left us panting and almost regretting but later we realized that probably the climb is one of the best things about the resort.
Take a lot of books, movies with you because the resort as yet does not have a recreational room or activity centre but if you want to be one with yourself, go ahead and enjoy.

Imagine you are entering a dreamland tucked away in nature, only reachable by climbing a bridge and mountain. Then imagine a hideaway consciously designed to support the evolution of the true seeker. Extraordinary service, view, beautiful meditation halls, rooftop spots and meals. And a lot of attention to detail.
Anand Lok is one of a kind and I am almost hesitant to share a great review as I appreciate the low buzz but high vibration at this magical place.

I spent 3 nights here with my Yogini pilgrimage group and everyone was simply amazed by the beauty that this space is holding.
If you are looking for something off the beaten track alongside the sacred river Ganga, this is it! you won't find other beautiful places that are integrated into nature so seamlessly!

Anand Lok keeps evolving and at the same time keeping its magic. This place is peaceful, accommodations are simple and comfortable. The best part is the staff and food in this place as well as the yoga facilities and private beach on The Ganga. Perfect place to hold a retreat or just stay in a tranquil environment.

I just came back from this amazing place, my 4 visit to India and my first time in this area. I'm so grateful to discovered a piece of heaven, from the delicious food, very helpful staff, and beautiful accommodations and the private beach on the Ganges make this place a perfect place to connect to nature, receive the healing energies of the mountains, river and their organic food.
There is a very special feeling. Can't wait to go back and bring a group.
