Chitwan National Park, Nepal
Meghauli Serai is an elegant safari lodge in the heart of Nepal's Terai lowland jungle with exceptional proximity to Chitwan National Park. Perched on the edge of the Rapti River, the property melds its lush natural setting with fine guest accommodations to create a serene escape from the everyday. Sixteen luxury riverside villas with spacious living areas and views of the park across the river offer a soothing sanctuary in the heart of the jungle. Each villa includes a private plunge pool, air conditioning and en suite bathrooms adorned with traditional Nepalese stone spouts.
Meghauli Serai offers a range of dining options. Guests can share stories of wildlife sightings over a communal dinner around a bonfire or enjoy a more private dinner in the dining room, on the river viewing deck, in their room or next to the pool. Specializing in Newari and Tharu cuisine, the chef prepares fresh food with an authentic local flair using organic fruits and vegetables grown on the premises.
After each adventurous day in the outdoors, guests can enjoy a cocktail at the bar and lounge, take a dip in the infinity pool or indulge in a range of soothing spa treatments and massages. From its prime position within the wilderness, the lodge offers excellent opportunities for spotting wildlife−like the one-horned rhinoceros and gharial−directly from the property.
