Beautiful hotel with special desert atmosphere and ambience. The overall impression was quite good, quality of the staff was typical for India and the knowledge of foreign languages, especially English could be better.

We travelled in the winter and it was foggy when we got in just before sunset. The main attraction of this place is the location on a hill, and the view on the dry savannah / desert. It the right season, I can imagine that Indian families spend a couple of days here, so their kids can enjoy the pool... More

During our three days stay we enjoyed every single minute. Due to unavailability of Room Service Staff denied to serve us Tea in room even after informing that we have 3... More

Nicely constructed and laid out resort. Good option for visiting the shekhawati region. Informative and attentive staff. Food could be better. One of the better places to stay in the shekhawati region.

After a week in India, we arrived in Mandawa and a two night stay at the Desert Resort. The resort is actually a concrete structure that is mudcoated and in the style of herds men's huts (I think). Our room/ set of rooms was huge. Two day beds as you walk in, a separate king size bed, a small room... More

We were planning to spend a day in Mandawa and our cab driver took us to this resort. From the outside the place looked interesting. But, as soon as we interacted with the staff, we realized that spending time at this place would ruin our holiday. Even though there was no guest at the reception, the manager behaved like he...

Mud brick cabins built round like the shape of old herdsmen's huts were absolutely unique and wonderful. My amazing room was more like a suite - had a marvellous entry foyer with day beds decorated with local woven rugs and quilts, the bedroom had a massive sumptuous bed with colourful quilts, a dressing room and 2 separate bathrooms - one...

The resort is within 5-6 hours drive time from Delhi NCR. The resort is nice but the suites, while being big in size do not spell luxury. Also there is no room service. Apart from this, it's a good place to relax. Food is quite alright.

Nice stay at Mandawa Desert Resort. Staff is very friendly and try to make everything as pleasant as possible to the guests. Rooms are very special, all situated in separate clay cabins. This sounds a little primitive but all luxury including bath, shower and airco is available. The site is a kind of small village just outside the town. Town... More
