In its first foray into Nepal in over a decade, the Bombay-based Taj Group has opened a new luxury camp in Chitwan National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage site. Meghauli Serai is comprised of riverside villas and river view rooms situated at the edge of the Rapti river—with the Himalayas as the dramatic backdrop. Here, guests can go on wildlife safaris with dedicated nature guides to see rhinos, tigers, leopards and more. Upon return to the camp, guests can experience “the legendary Taj Safaris hospitality”-- explains the official website -- “with bush dinners around the crackling bonfire, sundowners in the wilderness, romantic bath turn downs...”
Facilities at Meghauli Serai include massage rooms, an outdoor pool, a fitness center, complimentary Wi-Fi, a library, a children’s play room, a number of dining concepts, and there’s an onsite organic garden to supply the kitchens with fresh produce. Private butler service is available, and it’s possible to organize chauffeur-driven pickup to the closest airports (Meghauli, Bharatpur or Kathmandu).
