The quaint riverside setting offers a magical view from all of the rooms and villas. The Rapti Villas, each with a plunge pool offer a close to nature experience while the Meghauli Rooms with generous balconies provide a perch point for unhindered views of the forest landscape. The walls are adorned with floor to ceiling sketches depicting the daily life of Tharu villagers. The guest areas include the arrival lounge, library, dining room, bar, the Rapti bank deck and the swimming pool overlooking the river.
Apart from the magnificent Rhino, the park is a bird watcher’s delight with a count of around 600 including indigenous and migrant species such as the spectacular Great Hornbill, Ruddy Shelduck, Pied Kingfisher, Red-headed Trogon and the endangered Bengal florican to name a few. With the active involvement of the local community, the conservation efforts in Chitwan are a success story.
