A great place to stay in a quiet area of Jaislamer with spectacular views to Sunset Point with it's historic chattris & to the wonderful & ancient fort. A short walk or auto rickshaw ride in to town & the very helpful staff are able to organise your Lawrence of Arabia experience to the nearby sand dunes of the Thar... 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!!

A great alternative from those GH in the buzzling fort. Room is clean and stylish. Just right on the edge of Sunset Point, which is an excellent backdrop for you to enjoy sunset from the GH balcony. Staff are friendly and welcoming!

Stayed here for three nights, being made very welcome by Lois and her team. The Guesthouse is very nice and the rooms are clean and comfortable. Desert Moon is in a peaceful location just on the edge of town, downhill from what is known locally as Sunset Point but which is actually Vyas Chhatri, cenotaph of the man (Vyas) who... More

Located in a quiet area away from the city, but still within walking distance (took us about 20 minutes to walk to the fort). Lois was friendly and easy-going. Her staff were nice, but English was a bit limited so asking for information may be difficult. The rooftop restaurant has a nice view, but the food is only okay. The... More

Our trip into the desert for camel riding and camping with KK was great and the owners were very helpful and friendly. Rooftop cafe gives great views of the fort, and the food was good. The room was basic but clean. Short walk or autorickshaw ride into the centre.
