The experience was great right from the beginning when I booked the room. I emailed them regarding the booking and time we will be arriving (5 am in morning). They replied promptly and picked us up at the correct time.
The room was authentic and beautiful with colorful lightning. The bath room was big too. (FYI we took a heritage super deluxe room). We had a working ac with a TV. The owner Dushyant and his helper Salim were very friendly, warm and helpful. We were served with breakfast (bread toast, juice and fruits) in the terrace which was a good location.
We read reviews about camel safari arranged by Desert haveli and were relieved about making this choice. They assured us we need not book the room for another day while we spend overnight in the safari (luggage can be kept in another locked room) and we could use a room to get freshened up if we want to leave after safari (without again booking another room) which was very kind of them!!
Regarding camel safari, we took the non-touristic version (where you will be taken to dunes where you won't be able to see many people i.e. away from the chaos in serene dunes) and it was awesome. To describe the safari - some villages, great camel ride, chai and sunset in the vast undisturbed dunes, freshly cooked meal, dancing in the dunes (just us :)), sleeping under stars, waiting for sunrise, sun above the horizon, camel ride back, kuldhara the haunted village...
All in all great experience with Desert Haveli Guest house. Will be back soon :D
