The wildlife viewing deck or ‘Machaan’, on the river is the perfect vantage point to look out at the forest across and the river flowing below. A private dinner at this sweet spot, surrounded by wilderness and the open sky above is an experience to turn even a cynic into a romantic. Meghauli Serai offers multiple venues for private dining. The soft sandbanks of Rapti, the privacy of guest villas or under a tree by the light of oil lamps and candles. Irrespective of the venue, the meal prepared by expert chefs and private butler service remain the constants.
