To start planning your vacation to Kasara Resort
Chitwan National Park has always been seen as one of the diverse and beautiful parks in the subcontinent, with a wide range of ways to explore from jeep safaris, elephant safaris, bush walks and canoe safaris. In the 1960s, the lodges and staff who worked in Chitwan were seen as visionaries, with many of their ideas taken to Africa and India. Since then, those destinations produced lodges that surpassed their aforesaid mentor, but Chitwan has recently risen to the challenge with new additions like Kasara.
With Kasara Resort, they have their first truly luxurious lodge. It is designed along the principle of 'simple luxury', so expect chic, minimalist rooms and locally inspired architecture, blending in to its natural jungle environment. There are 35 rooms and villas, and also two VIP villas with their own private infinity pool. The villas are large, furnished with neutral tones, and come with a private water-garden courtyard, sundeck with sit-out, and indoor and outdoor bathroom (do note you might see the odd creepy crawly!). The Jungle View Villa Suites are two-storied with a king size bed and two twins, so ideal for families and have their own pool and sitting area. All rooms are air-conditioned, which is actually fairly rare for the lodges in Chitwan, meaning you can visit during the hotter spring months when the wildlife is at its best.
The wildlife is why you come to Chitwan, and the guides are Kasara are hand-picked and very knowledgeable. Kasara has five of its own elephants for you to head off exploring the park, as well as options to visit the park in jeeps, boat or on foot. This gives you a really varied wildlife experience.
Return back from your wildlife experience and there is a welcoming pool and fantastic cuisine. Kasara grows many of its own vegetables and focuses on locally sourced ingredients. There are both Nepali and international options and can be enjoyed in either the Main Cafe, or in your villa. Move upstairs and you can enjoy the cosy Bar & Lounge - featuring over 50 different wines. For those who want to relax, Kasara has a spa with a range of treatments and massages.
The Kasara Resort has upped the level of comfort you can expect from a stay in Chitwan National Park - carefully blending luxury with the feeling you are still visiting a wildlife park. Getting this balance right has been their greatest achievement.
There are 35 rooms and 2 VIP 2 Bedroom Villa Suites. All rooms feature air-conditioning, day beds, WiFi, swimming pool access, indoor/outdoor bathrooms.
The regular villas offer 130sq meters of space, and a living space of 55sq meters. Each villa comes with a private water-garden courtyard, a private garden, an indoor-outdoor bathroom space, and a sun deck also setup for personal dining. Villas are air-conditioned, have day beds and WiFi.
