Araiya,Palampur has been one of the best properties I have been to. They really had a warm and a welcoming staff and delicious food. We really enjoyed our stay throughout with an exquisite view and location.
We had the fortune of visiting Araiya in the busy second week of June for three nights. Araiya Palampur, as advertised all over social media isn’t really in Palampur per se. On the contrary, it is far away from the bustling main square. What works for this resort and perhaps something that adds to the charm of the place is that it is the only property around Palampur located at an altitude of 5000 feet compared to the rest of the resorts which are located at lower altitudes. Situated on a hill in village Kandi, the resort is a steep climb away from Saurabh Van Vihar. However, the approach is not treacherous. The resort is built in a way that wherever you go, the scenery doesn’t leave your sight. It houses a gym, spa, kids club and a lovely orchard abound with hammocks and benches where one can soak in the nature. It also makes for an ideal morning yoga spot. The highlight of the resort though is undoubtedly the deck area featuring an infinity pool right beside The Old Fox Bar. Deepak at the bar is a great bloke to have conversation with. He makes great cocktails by the way! Prices are on the higher side at the bar. The staff at Araiya is amazing. They are courteous and friendly right from the guards at the entry, the front office managers ensuring our check-in was smooth to the housekeeping team getting us what we needed in time and keeping our room spotless. You won’t find plastic bottles at Araiya which is great. The all day restaurant serves lip smacking food with a great variety to choose from at breakfast as well as dinner. We loved the food and the desserts too. The restaurant staff deserves a special mention here particularly Pankaj. Right from breakfast to dinner, times when the restaurant was very busy, he was always on his toes catering to the varying needs of the guests. We felt that the team was understaffed. This was perhaps why the service was occasionally slow. We are glad that we opted for the deluxe suite which is situated on a higher level. It has a lobby and you get a spacious balcony to relax in the presence of the magnificent Dhauladhar mountain range. Rooms on the ground level have a private sit out. Our pick would be the deluxe suite rooms 203, 303, 403 and 503. For couples traveling together, executive suite 101 would be a great choice. Araiya is a place that you wouldn’t want to leave by the end of your stay. We highly recommend this resort and hope to come back again in future. Book your stay at this property without batting an eyelid and thank me later!…
Best property in palampur. If you ever visit palampur I think this is the best property to stay . Location , room , greenery, ambience,food,everything was perfect . Mr vinay at front office gets special appreciation from my side , he made our stay very comfortable as I am with my parents. Amit in restaurant was very warm & served with happiness 😊.
Had a brilliant stay. Cannot fault resort . It was clean, in a good location, served a great breakfast and the staff were extremely helpful. if you want to stay in a luxury cottage then Araiya Norwood Heights Resort is a good option. Old fox bar and the pool is too good . If you want to workout with a view then Araiya gym is best i have ever visited . Garden area is also too good where you can sit and relax. My grandson also enjoyed the kids zone area . Would definitely recommend and would certainly stay here again
We visited Araiya, Palampur in first week of June 2022, for a family retreat. It is been newly constructed and well managed, and one of the best location in outer of Palampur. Its been situated just 1KM away from Palampur’s famous Negul khad, which great evening time spot. Best features as we observed, small but infinity pool with majestic view, morning and evening view of terrace garden is awesome, food is awesome and one of the best buffet we experienced so far in such class of hotels, kids too enjoyed the playing zone. Saturday and Sunday’s gala nights in pub were also good. We arranged a private open to air party, which was one most remarkable experience we will remember always. Special thanks to Mr Puneet Rana, for coordinating well with us. One advice: May end to June may be not good time to visit palampur, as days are comparatively hotter. But if you want to enjoy the majestic hills, and superb morning, evening and nights this is a wondeful spot to experience through out the year.…
Our visit to Hotel Palampur was an excellent place to spend family vacation - a place in the lap of nature and full of peace and serenity. We had an amazing time over there and were overwhelmed with the kind and polite behavior of the entire staff. Thank you for the wonderful stay!!! Neha Singhal

Araiya beat all our expectations - great property, super comfortable suites, and absolutely great staff ever ready to help with a smile. We opted for two suites that joined up in a villa and comfortably accommodated 3 families. We felt at home and in the lap of luxury all at once ! The spa, gym and yoga classes, game zone and easy treks around the property were great for the active ones ! Everything very well thought of. We will definitely visit again and would highly recommend to anyone looking for a getaway in the Himachal. Thank you Raghav (venues & vacations) for introducing us to Araiya ! Dimple Gurgaon
