Established in 1973 and declared a World Heritage Site in 1984, Chitwan National Park covers 932 sq. km. of lush forest, and is home to many unique species of animals that thrive in its rich ecosystem. Meghauli Serai is located on the banks of the Rapti river amongst thick Sal forests and tall grasses. This National Park is one of the last surviving natural ecosystems in the Terai region and is wedged between the Narayani and Rapti rivers in the north and the Reu river and Churia hills in the south.
Our luxury safari lodge has the distinction of being the habitat for the rare one-horned rhinoceros, as well as being home to around five hundred and fifty different species of birds, and one of the few known breeding sites of the endangered spotted eagle.
Perched on the side of the Rapti river, the lodge with its villas and rooms is a serene getaway. The Presidential Suite at the Rapti Mahal offers spectacular views of the river, a private viewing deck and a plunge pool. The sixteen luxury Rapti villas collectively form a calm sanctuary in the middle of the jungle, with their spacious living areas and the great views from them. And the contemporarily-styled Meghauli rooms, with large, spacious balconies, overlook the Himalayas and the Terai grasslands below.
The plethora of experiences at Meghauli Serai is perfectly complemented by the vast variety of cuisines one can sample here. Whether it is breakfast, consisting of steaming idlis and paranthas, a well-balanced lunch, with a choice of salads and soups, or a sumptuous dinner, comprising of Tibetan delicacies, each meal is bound to leave a unique impression on the palate.
