Set in the small village of Tharus, Barahi Jungle Lodge overlooks the Rapti River, and is surrounded by a verdant forest.
The water-facing cottages made from local bamboo, stone, and sustainable wood reveal a sense of luxury in a remote, tranquil location.
During your stay enjoy the jungle views from your private balcony in one of the 35 guest rooms and family suites decorated with traditional Nepali furnishings. With discounted rates, parents with children under 11 can pay up to 25 per cent while under-twos can stay for free.
The vast vegetation allows for meals to be prepared using local vegetables and fruit complemented with Himalayan herbs and homemade pickle. Savour Nepalese, Continental, Indian and Chinese cuisine at the main dining room or outside by the infinity pool facing the river. The Tiger’s Den bar is perfect for downtime serving aperitif-spirits, wines and liqueurs.
From hiking to canoe rides, explore with the help of the lodge’s naturalists. Just opposite the lodge is Chitwan National Park in the foothills of the Himalaya. Here you can spot the royal Bengal tiger, leopard, sloth and bear during a safari.
With views of the forest, unwind at the spa where Ayurvedic treatments and Thai messages can be customised to ease your jungle and excursions fatigue. Experience a cultural evening when Tharu dancers who perform their folk songs.
