Originally the private residence of a nobleman, which was also used as a hunting lodge by British administrators of the time, the charming Tree of Life Jaagir Lodge is set among 3 hectares of wilderness and is surrounded by mustard and sugar cane fields. Superbly restored and converted into a wildlife lodge, The Tree of Life Jaagir Lodge features three rooms and three suites in the main house and six villas that are dotted around the property. Each of the rooms and the suites in the main house are spacious, feature a separate bedroom and living room and are elegantly decorated using period-style furniture. The rooms open on to a veranda and the suites feature a private courtyard or terrace. The suites are more spacious, feature exquisitely carved four-poster beds with teakwood dressers, separate dining area and a fireplace. The independent luxury villas with thatched roofs and natural wood or stone flooring combine traditional Terrai-style architecture with contemporary conveniences and overlook the surrounding wilderness. Facilities include the library bar with interesting motifs and antique furniture, a dining room with indoor and outdoor seating, an outdoor pool overlooking the forests, and a spa.
The lodge is about 30 minutes' drive from the entrance to the Dudhwa National Park and the Kishanpur Wildlife Sanctuary, and about 2 hours' drive from the Katarniaghat Wildlife Sanctuary.
