We stayed at this family owned and operated relatively newly built hotel, as booked by a friend. It proved to be a good escape from the hectic tourist road. It is a short drive out of the main city with brilliant views of the fort for sunrise or sunset shots. You can relax on the rooftop of the hotel and... More

I had a lovely stay at Desert Moon. From the warm email interactions to the pick up and drop to friendly housekeeping, everything is very personal and unique about this place. I always like to go for a place which is not too commercial, and has its own identity even in a tourist-heavy town, and Desert Moon is just that.... More

I'm sure this is a nice place in high season, when the Australian owner lady is around. In her absence, in the heat of the low season, it was a weird experience. The staff was very nice and went out of their way to ensure I was ok, I was offered a shower and time to relax in the room... More

This place was lovely. Outside of town and quiet. Lois was so helpful. We spent relaxing days on the balcony or the rooftop enjoying the peace. The staff were very helpful and the rooms clean and spacious.

Absolutely stay here is you want a peaceful place to stay. I concur with the other good reviews about the friendly, helpful staff, good food, cleanliness, and especially value for the money. I had a large, excellent room with a good bathroom (faucet on the sink needs to be fixed though!.) You won't be in the midst of the noise... More

Lois has been an invaluable help to me and the people I brought to the desert. Everything was clear and easy to arrange, she, Chanesar and the entire staff at Desert Moon were very warm and friendly. The desert safari was also wonderful. We've done this twice and will do it again!!
