“Decent but basic”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2011

The place is located outside Jaisalmer, near Khuri. The place Khuri is close to sand dunes and is a better option as the crowd is less as compared to Sam.

The resort was basic but clean. The staff was friendly. Food was again very basic and no bespoke requirements can be catered to.

Our tent was spacious and toilet was clean. The resort arranged for the camel ride to the dunes and it was well managed.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2008

We went to Mama Guest House for a day's camel safari. We did not stay at this hotel but am writing to suggest this anyway, because the friendly and proud (justifiably) owner showed us all the rooms available. It is a small place, impeccably clean, orderly, and simple. Nothing fancy, but totally pleasant anyway. We were in Jaisalmer for several days and went to this place to enjoy a day of sand dunes, music and dinner. The little village of Khuri is a special place to visit, tourist friendly and helpful. What makes this place special is that the owner began years ago to bring tourism to his little village by providing excellent value, clean and comfortable accomodations, and use the proceeds to improve his village and the welfare of his community. He also introduced organic farming, and makes his village as 'green' as possible. For tourists who want to experience a real village life, but also know their dollars are going to improve the lot of the people, this is a place to visit. There is a new school that has been built, and the prosperity of the village is obvious in how much better fed and cheerful the children appear. It is a pleasure to be able to recommend a place that combines personal comfort with a chance to benefit an entire community.

  • Liked — the naturalness of its buildings, the setting
  • Disliked — nothing

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
The Mama's Resort and Camp is an exclusive camp experince at the golden sanddunes of Khuri.Every time you step onto the endless expanse of sun-kissed, gilded sands of Jaisalmer in Rajasthan, your sense are ensconced in the calming tranquility and stillness of the place. The camp promises a truly unparalleled experience of the desert in itselement. It is a toast to the erstwhile Maharajas and you are treated to one with a panache that leves you overwhelmed. Just as the royalty camped it Tents(khemas) away from the palaces, the resort spins a similar ambience with its modern Swiss cottage tents right in the midst of the desert. Just as the royalty traversed stretches of desert on camels, the evenings see you astride colorfully caparisoned camels led by ethnically dressed butlers as you begin your sojourn of miles of shimmering sand dunes ito the sunset. Lounging on the dunes, one can only gaze in breathless wonderment as the sun begins to go down and casts an ember halo over the desert horizon. ... more   less
