Best part about Royal Desert Camp is the location, bang opposite to the Sam sand dunes, you can even take a walk to the dunes, The camp is very well maintained with more than 100 tents and a nice dinner area in the centre. While on the way we saw few camps from outside and I feel Royal Camp is... More

We visited just last week 27th Oct.2014 to Royal Desert Camp. It was good experience. Prices compare to other camps bit expensive, but Tent, cleanliness was very appreciated. Dinner and breakfast was good, but evening snacks not having varieties. Staff giving more attention to Foreign guest. Manager Mr. B.M. Sing is co-operative.

You approach the tent city through fleets of tourist buses and camels galore. There are at least six camps adjacent to the Royal Desert Camp, offering very similar experiences. This makes for a lively atmosphere that continues well into the evening with the rival music groups and dancers vying with each other in the Thar Desert's answer to Ayia Nappa!... More

Poor food, no air conditioning makes stay during day uncomfortable, they do not clearly state that they do not have AC while they use superlatives like deluxe and super deluxe tents. I had booked 2 super deluxe tents for 3rd October. I wish I had stayed in jaisalmer hotels and done the day tour of sand dunes. The location is... More

We stayed at the Royal Desert Camp on New Year's Eve, and enjoyed memories of a lifetime. Rode camels in the desert where we watched the sun set on the last day of the year, then enjoyed a fun-filled night by the fire with great entertainment. The beautiful tent made turned the very cold, windy night into a fun family-huddled... More

The USP of this camp is its location. It is just opposite to the sand dunes. It is a big camp with nice tents. The cultural program in the evening was good though the cultural program later turned into Bollywood music!! Snacks are served in the evening which was very good. Camel safari is also included in the package. Anyway,... More
