Travelled with family and stayed for 2 nights. Hotel is slightly out of the main town. You can take an auto. You can get a panoramic view of the Jaisalmer fort (Sonar Kella from the famous Satyajit Ray movie) from the hotel along with a lovely sunset. The rooms are quite decent, made of the same yellow limestone that the... More

Recently I stayed in this beautiful hotel located on the outskirts of the city. Most tourist spots are within a radius of a 10-15 min car drive from here. The hotel layout is good with lots of open spaces. The rooms are good and service is timely as well. The outdoor swimming pool is great .. It is excellently maintained... More

This hotel might not be up to the levels of an actual Taj property, but the ways it makes up for that are sensational. You can get a choice of either a proper room or a tent (I tried both and strongly recommend the tent, if you can tolerate the beastly winter cold!). Attractions like the Jaisalmer fort & Kuldhara...

Let's be practical - its a Gateway hotel by Taj Group and not a Luxury hotel. Once you set your expectations right that it will be a fairly basic but well kept resort, I think you should be fine. Food though could improve and I found that tasteless here. Even for the traditional Rajasthani food options, I found little taste... More

We stayed for 2 nights but wish we had got something closer to the city. It is in the middle of a construction wasteland surrounded by pylons. Can just see city in the distance if it is not dusty.

Far reaching views to Jaisalmer, and very pleased to arrive here after a long journey across the desert. This is a modern, well appointed hotel and small enough not to get lost in. The food is good and the swimming pool very welcoming. We ate outside one evening, very pleasant.

I realise the tourist season is nearly over and things are winding down but the hotel just felt lifeless. I had to ask for towels for the pool which looked a bit slimy underwater and not particularly clear.The aircon was very noisy as were the fans.
