Its location provides a view of the whole park, with the river coming to greet you every morning at your cottage. If you ever wanted to experience rural Nepali culture blended with the feel of Himalayan forests, and the comfort of modern amenities – then this necklace of cottages is the perfect place for you to come to.
The feel and decor of the place fit perfectly with the jungle location, giving you the vibe of being in a jungle lodge.
The architecture is done using locally sourced bamboo, as well as sustainable furnishings of wood. Each room features a décor with a blend of contemporary and traditional Nepali Furnishings with indigenous elements such as used-wood, bamboo, elephant grass and animal art-crafts.
The river-facing cottages have a sense of calm and serenity infused in them. And if you want to take a dip, the infinity pool on-site will make for the perfect spot to melt away your stress.
There is also a wellness spa which you can utilise to indulge in some Ayurvedic therapy and self-care.
The river is the focal point of a lot of exploration activities, and makes for a lovely experience of exploring the National Park, the wildlife, and jungle walks.
If you want to see the village and learn about the native Tharu community, you can go for a walk or take a bullock cart ride for the authentic experience.
The lodge has authentic Nepalese Cuisine prepared with organically grown healthy food, topped with Himalayan herbs and homemade pickle.
At some distance from the cottages, the bar is well-equipped to serve aperitif-spirits, wines and liqueurs.

Exploring it is an unmemorable event. The land of Rhinos, it became a UNSECO World Heritage sites, and protects tons of terai species. Getting to know them either via safari, or simply from glancing out your cottage window, is a dip into nature that you deserve.
Besides, Serenity by the River – as the name suggests – is a soothing balm to the soul. Spending mornings watching the meandering river, taking walks through the grassy lawns, or sipping wine at sunset to the shrill call of birds returning to their nests – there is nothing you won’t enjoy here (even simply doing nothing!)
