“Beautiful hotel in Jaisalmer”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

The hotel looks like a very newly done one, but with an old fashioned desert palace style which fits very nice to the environment.

The hotel is located quite far from the fortress, most of the shops and old city , so you'll need an autorickshaw or taxi to get there.

The recepcion is very nice including a marble fountain and a huge pendant lighting, some handmade shops, tourism desk, and very courteous service.

Since we stayed in march 2013, we enjoyed the medium sized pool, which is really nice, but guess that in summer time pool must be quite important under 45C degrees, and for sure getting very crowded fastly.

Our room were particularly small, but enough for two days. We saw that there were another options with private balcony, garden or terrace. We couldn't manage the room temperature, and since it was quite cold, we were provided a portable electric heater.

Restaurant and beakfast service and food were excellent and had very good variety between western dishes to local rajasthani options.

Room Tip: We had really nice time in this hotel, but try to have a big room over the green area or pool (if no...

The room we stayed in very comfortable furnished with beautiful beds and very attractive decor. Bathroom had a lovely tub for a long soak, which I did and the complimentary bathroom products were very good quality. Food in the hotel restaurant was excellent quality and very tasty, they had western food as well as Indian food, but frankly I would rather they just served Indian food.
Attentive and informative staff who were efficient and seemed to always be there to help.

Room Tip: Choose a room at the front of the building, it has a patio and terrific light, and extremely private...

taking out friends for a quiet lunch to an unknown place is a gamble .the visit to this hotel really paid off -firstly u cannot but be impressed by the enormous chandelier at the entrance
the lunch buffet did not look too inviting as it had been demolished by a bunch of hungry and happy people so we settled for the laal mass and naan with a huge veg platter
it was tasty and great and the beer did wonders to add to the feeling of opulence in us
the dining area is beautiful ,the swimming pool great but it was a bit chilly ,the rooms shown were very very clean and tastefully done,the whole property is a welcome change from the heat outside ,they also have a helpdesk for travellers
the best part of the hotel is the smiling staff and the helpful attitude

Room Tip: the parking is all mud so lookout for the sandy patches and only one car space below a tree is in th...

This modern 3 year old hotel is exceelent; well planned and goes up a hillside. We were in Rm 116 which was spacious and had a small balcony; I don't think it would matter which room you had, they are all good. firm beds, typical of India, good bathroom. The first hotel with a 'Suggestion Box' - congratulations!
The hotel bar is very good, make use of it and look after that lovely bartender, a real gentleman - loves his cricket.
Important: The hotel shop is worth waiting for and the place to buy your textiles. We found they were not pushy and their prices about half what some other places we saw charged, you will not go wrong here! Everyone was very nice at this hotel, friendly and happy, and you feel comfortable in every sense of the word. The buffet restaurant food was some of the best we have encountered and that is really saying something, just top class.
Lovely swimming pool and garden surrounds.
You have free use of the computer to check emails etc, but like many hotel computers they need to invest in a new keyboard.
You will not find better than this fabulous hotel.

Room Tip: All rooms are good, 116 we found excellent.

Reception area is lovely and the staff were very helpful. Like most hotels on our trip, we were provided with free water and the room was very clean and fairly spacious and comfortable. the pool was clean and the food was ok, just not much different from all the other places we visited. Lovely garden area to walk around and relax, very peaceful after all the horn blowing traffic. Service was a bit slow at meal times.
