Taj Meghauli Serai


A luxurious wilderness retreat, set amid gorgeous natural environs, on the banks of the Rapti river.

With just thirty elegant rooms and suites, Meghauli Serai offers unparalleled luxury in the heart of the Nepalese wilderness.

The rooms are airy, flooded with natural light. Earth tones and light colours create an uplifting ambience. The lodge overlooks the Rapti River, and the Rapti Villas have stunning views of the water. The public areas have a charming local aesthetic. Native artwork and artefacts give the interiors a distinct Nepalese character.

A large infinity pool with an expansive deck, as well as a private machaan overlooking the water, are ideal for private dinners or simply to relax and watch the sunset.

The villas come with their butler service and private plunge pools. Between excursions into the jungle you an opt to enjoy a soothing spa treatment at the Jiva spa, go on a nature walk with your guide, visit a local Tharu village, or learn more about elephants. The meals are delicious and the menu includes an array of local and international cuisine. A well-stocked library is a great way to spend a relaxing afternoon, or if you prefer a little more activity, take a canoe down the Rapti river.
