To see desert in India you have to go to Jaisalmir, which is quite far. but if you want to get a glimpse of the desert this is the place to be. This is a small desert area which seemed to have appeared out of nowhere. The whole are is owned by the Welcome Heritage hotel of Khimsar. There is... More

The Yuppy version of sand dunes - next to the village and 5 kms from the Khimsar Fort My view it is a must do - if you are doing Khimsar Plan was for 2 days but only available for 1 day but that day we were the only residents. Though others did come for the sun set or sun... More

it was a desire to stay at sand dunes being a Rajasthani. Property is so well made and maintained that one would like to stay longer. At the end, we felt stay to be too short. Detailing of hut rooms is done very nicely. Guest could have enjoyed more had there been any guidance by team. Have noticed some ambiguity... More

The rooms are excellent, they provided a heater and we were warm throughout the night. The rooms are decorated authentic Rajasthani style and are extremely clean. Service was impeccable and food was delicious, it was one of the best dinners and breakfast we had during our tour in Rajasthan.

This was the most expensive stay in out 15-day trip to Rajasthan, but we are glad we spent it here. We were the only guests at the sand dunes on Dec 15. We reached by noon, had lunch at the Khimsar fort and were then taken to the dunes by their jeep and camel cart. We enjoyed the evening by... More

We were looking for a quiet break from our road trip through Rajasthan , and we sure found it. The hotel has created a sand dune oasis 2-3 km from Khimsar , accessible only by hotel jeep and camel cart into the village of specially designed huts and service tents, set around a pond/small lake , looking like a movie...

The hotel was in the middle of desert sands with Pakka huts ( having fan and collers !!) with open to sky shower bathrooms. Food was good and they try to prepare what ever you like . Sunrise and sunset can be seen from the top of the sand dunes with tea and buiscuits. Nice sitting arrangements / sheds in... More

This is a part of the Khimsar Fort, though it is a separate property about 6 kms. away. They transport you from the hotel by their own cars. There are 16 cottage rooms in the village and they are all made very nicely and give a really rustic feeling. The staff are extremely courteous. Had a great time there, especially... More
