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

This is very unique accommodation, with rooms styled after traditional mud buildings. The rooms are large and comfortable. The property is attractive. The buffet-style meals were quite good. There is a nice pool on the property. Unfortunately, the staff ranged from indifferent to downright rude (front desk staff).

I was here with a friend to spend the weekend. Truly this place has nothing much apart from its deserted isolation. A one night trip is actually more than enough here. We stayed at the Desert Resort which was good - a village like experience with modern facilities. Rooms are nice...you feel like you are living in a supercool hut... More

We went during summers wherein there is a bit of renovation and less occupancy. It was probably a very good decision as we were pampered a lot by the staff and received all the attention like a noble. The pool is quite good and its a lovely breeze and views post sunset. Few Peacocks in the vicity add to the... More

We stayed here around mid July. As it was an off peak season, hotel was not much occupied and we were pampered by service. Our stay was made memorable with wonderful Rajasthani food. Since we were keen to have the local food, staff suggested us wonderful delicacies available in the season and then serve them as well with equal enthusiasm.... More
