Historically, Chitwan was the hunting ground for Nepal’s royal family. Since 1973, this UNESCO World Heritage Site has been the heart of the country’s wildlife conservation effort, where endangered tiger and rhino populations have made a comeback. Birdsong fills the air throughout Kasara's lush landscape, a seamless blend of contemporary minimalism and local materials, airy and washed in light.
Private cottages lie beyond wooden walkways over pools filled with wild water plants. Each includes a cozy lounge, a large bedroom with floor-to-ceiling windows, and an airy bathroom with open rain shower. Two private villas hidden at the end of the property offer even greater privacy and amenities: three bedrooms and bathrooms, a lounge, a kitchenette with a dining table, and private lounge pools.
The resort’s gorgeous swimming pool, shaded by tall trees and thick greenery, is the heart of the Kasara scene. After a morning filled with safari, meditation, spa or massage sessions, the pool is the perfect spot to beat the tropical heat. Lounging on one of the curtained day beds, cocktail in hand, makes an enviable Instagram post. Every evening during Happy Hour, the pool turns into a stage for a cultural show by the local Tharu community. You can dine here, too. With advance notice, Kasara excellent chefs will prepare a poolside barbeque, just for you!

This escape to nature is only 20 minutes of flight time from Kathmandu. Make sure to request a seat on the side of the plane with views of the north. If the airline does not have assigned seats, find one on the right hand side isle. This way, you can goggle at Nepal’s plains, valleys, river gorges and Himalayan peaks all through the flight.
We are just back to Kathmandu from a wonderful four days at Kasara resort. The facilities are wonderful, the rooms are incredibly comfy, the food is great (they are very good at catering for vegan diets) and the staff could not be nicer or more helpful. We did several safaris and our guides were friendly and incredibly knowledgeable. We also did a cycle ride through Tharu villages which was also wonderful. We enjoyed every minute and will definitely be back.

Special shout out to our guide Babu (Naturalist) and the restaurant manager (Gayatri) -- they made sure that all our needs were met and constantly checked in with us. One of the best services we've received in Nepal. The resort is great and the team makes it so much more welcoming :)
