“Rustic experience..”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

The highlight was the camel ride to watch the glorious sunset in the Thar desert (Khuri). The mama's desert camp provided good entertainment and food in the night however if you reach the place in the afternoon you won't find any food and have to survive on chips and cookies. We reached there at 2:30 PM with kids after 4 hrs of drive through the desert and was surprised to hear that the cook will come only at 6 PM to cook.
We went for camel ride in our own vehical at 4:30 PM for the Camel ride. The camel ride was good and sunset was breath taking. We got back at 6:30 PM to evening snack of Fried peanuts and bhajiyas/pakoras ( was mediocore) and Tea( good). At 8:30 PM they started the evening program of local dancers and singers. The bonfire was good however was too far from the seating. The program was quite entertaining and singers amazing followed by a buffet dinner of Rajasthani food. The checkout was 10AM the following morning however he gave us an hour more as he forgot to inform us. As we drove past many desert camp, we decided to stop by at the NEW desert camp called the "Marwar Desert camp". The tents at this camp was well equiped and the place had more amenities like sitting area and gazebos. I would like to stay at the Marwar camp next time.

Didn't get a chance to stay the lovely tentage located within the resort but my night stay there was excellent. A basic comfortable stay in the desert - just understand that water (let alone hot water) is really a luxury here in the desert conditions. The dancers gave a lovely performance before dinner.

Room Tip: stay at the tents if you can - I hear it gets booked up real fast & boasts the best experience s...

We had booked it after reviews on trip advisor. The hotel offers a total package. We found the cottage poorly maintained. It is difficult to get hot water. The trip to sand dunes was the high point and we saw deer and peacocks on the way. The sunset was spectacular! While the cultural programme - singing and dances were nice and the dinner was ok, breakfast was disappointing.
With hindsight, it would have been made more sense had we stayed at Jaisalmer and just visited sand dunes at Khuri.

My visit to Jaisalmer became remarkable and memorable because of my stay in The Mama's Resort & Camp. I stayed in Jaisalmer for 3 nights and out of that I only stayed in The Mama's Resort & Camp for one night. I wish I had stayed all 3 nights here. The resort is really amazing in every possible way .. service, food, location, hospitality, value. I stayed in the tent which was amazing and huge, decorated and furnished with beautiful vintage furniture. The bathroom inside the tent was also quite big. The bed was comfortable and the sleep quality was very good. The people working there always treat you as a special guest and take care of your every need. I was truly and deeply amazed and happy with their professionalism. The food was served during dinner was authentic Rajasthani cuisine and the choices were many. The taste of every dish was amazing. The evening cultural programme presented by the local villagers was remarkable, specially the folk music and dance performance (kalbelia). The atmosphere/ ambience of the evening program is very special. The stay in this resort also includes the camel ride in desert during sunset. As this place is located within the Desert National Park, the desert and sand dunes are much better then Sam Sand Dunes. First I was advised to go to Sam Sand Dunes, but later I decided to go to Mama's resort in Khuri. Thanks god I did that!!! Khuri where Mama's resort is located is much nicer and quieter place compare to Sam sand Dunes due to the fact that it is less crowded and when you go to desert you see much less tourist and more empty space which gives you the thrill of being in a desert and middle of nowhere. The wild life in the desert is plenty, on the 3 hours camel ride is saw many Indian Gazelle (Chinkara), desert fox and Great Indian Bustard. My stay in Mama's resort was worth every penny. I will surely go back to this place and stay there for few days. This place is ideal for family holidays or even for a quite weekend break from the hustle and bustle of the city. I will highly recommend this place for the stay while in Jaisalmer. As this place is only 40 km from Jaisalmer, one can stay here and do the sightseeing of Jaisalmer as same time. If you are in Jaisalmer for holidays, surly this is the place to stay.

Room Tip: Book the tent ... they are amazing

We stayed in Mamas for one night in Khuri. Service was excellent, dinner was very good. They made to our order. Rooms were good for Khuri standards. Breakfast was decent. Trip to dessert for sunset was very exciting on Camel back

The service standards was very good

Over all a very pleasant experience

Room Tip: I found the A/C rooms better than the tent, probably because of the heat during late October

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
