A star-filled sky, migratory birds, local traditions and Bannni grasslands.....our trip would not have been complete without our stay at this remarkable location. The delicious Gujarati cuisine was served under the large quaint fabric-roofed outdoor dining canope. The bhunda mud house was cozy, warm, safe, private, roomy and we took advantage of our outdoor covered mud porch area for excellent birdwatching. Bathrooms were clean, modern with hot water. Staff were very friendly, helpful and went above and beyond to share vintage village textiles with us. Well worth the trip to this remote part of Kutch.

The resort offers a very unique staying experience with its true to Kutch style mud houses, with excellent detailing and at the same time maintaining the cleanliness and hygiene. While the houses and furnishings are made from mud, the bathrooms are clean and very modern. In the evenings, guests are treated to authentic, live music by local musicians. Breakfast, lunch and dinner is also available at the premises, again keeping true to local kutchi cuisine, but can be a little limiting in its offering. Simple and charming.

This is a beautiful place to stay in the middle of the desert. Very well maintained property (Kudos to the village committee for this) and very courteous staff. I Enjoyed my stay here thoroughly. We were three people staying in the mud houses there. known as Bhunga. The toilets were quite clean which to me was a delight!!
Strongly recommend this place to future goers!

Room Tip: Bhungas are I guess better choice during winters as they turn out to be very cosy

I was thrilled to see what how a desert place can be converted a beautiful place of stay by villagers. In the middle of desert, the villagers of Hodka have taken the task to transform their village life to tourists in the form of Shaam-eSarhad. Though they might not be as courteous as found in big hotels, but they are surely great. One can stay in tents or Bhunga's as they do, eat food prepared as they prepare at their home and most importantly traditional dance and music performance that is organized in the evening as they do for themselves in their villages.

Bookings are like hot cake. They sell out at the pace of tickets for any Indian cricket match. So make sure that you get in touch with them early and book it very well in advance. If you are going to stay there, I advise you not to take any food or water or blankets thinking what might be expected from a place in a desert. The food is more delicious then in any of the grand multi star hotels that one finds in big cities. The traditional dishes for lunch and dinner were brilliant. Local Bajra ki roti and curries …..

The tents are big and luxurious. Being in middle of desert we did not face any issue of water or any other comfort. One can even sleep below clear sky staring at stars if they wish too. This place is very near to White desert. Places that can be covered from here are India Bridge and Kalo Dhongar. One can visit some of the villages if one has time.

A place I will visit again !!

We had dinner here with friends, after a long day in the white rann and kado dungar... Brilliant traditional food, very nice ambience with live kutchchi music... Nice place, what a simplistic and pleasing decor... Clean. We would like to stay here next time.
