We were looking for a quiet place to relax in away from the hustle and bustle of Delhi and Rainforest House was the perfect answer. The rooms are simple and done up tastefully. Everything worked. The staff are courteous and Steve and Tripti are lovely to talk to. Our room was right next to a little stream which was amazingly not slippery at all. It had just enough water for my 2.5 year old daughter to have a great time splashing around. Walking down a path for around minute led to a private beach on the banks of the Ganga! Even if you're not very fond of being in the water, you can just relax in the shade of the beautiful trees on the property. We spotted many birds we'd never seen before. The food's simple but delicious Indian fare well in keeping with the ambience. There's also some space to practice yoga or do a little meditation. Lakshman Jhula is a 10min drive/hitchhike from the resort. We're very glad we found this place and hope to go back soon.
