Ranked #6 of 108 Hotels in Jaisalmer
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed November 9, 2012

Located a bit away from the Jaisalmer city, about a 20 min car drive but worth the travel. We chanced upon this hotel while planning our road trip to Rajasthan and this turned out to be our best stay in the entire trip. its best if you have your own vehicle, else i think the hotel makes arrangements for pick ups and drops. We were upgraded to a suite and i have only good things to say about the place. The rooms are very spacious, the bed was sooooooo comfortable, the service is impeccable and the staff are extremely warm and friendly. The food (we taasted the indian) was excellent and the ambience relaxing. This place is I guess the best stay at Jaisalmer and does not come cheap on the pocket. But I would like to go back to Jaisalmer just for a relaxed stay at Suryagarh.

Room Tip: Just leave it to the staff there.........all the rooms are awesome i am sure !

Right from our arrival till departure, we could feel the warmth, the friendly attitude and the personal touch of all the staff we came in contact with.Their smiles were real,not formal or put ons. Karan,the manager is very helpful,cheerful and going round the place, most of the day or night and so is his pet, Alex.Located about 10 Kms. outside Jaisalmer,the facility is on way to the sand dunes and looks a majestic fort in itself,The rooms are spacious and the bath rooms are luxurious.The indoor swimming pool is most enjoyable.The billiards table is well maintained and the cultural programs in the evening are a pleasure in themselves.If you want to enjoy a holiday and pamper yourself away from it all,this is it.Mobile phone connectivity at times is a problem but landline is of help.

Room Tip: Go for a room with a view of the sunrise or sunset.

Best Rajasthan Hotel made in Last decade in Rajasthan or India not from the top three Chains. The food and service is good. The rooms are well equipped. Covered swimming pool is a big attraction. The hotel still is expanding so a visit every three years may be a good idea. The staff is well trained and Courteous.

Room Tip: The place is rather far away from City but towards the dunes. Staying at Heritage room is an experie...

We stayed at Suryaghar recently with our children (ages 12 and 11) and our experience was quite different from what you would usually get at a 5-star hotel, because the manager and the staff put a lot of effort into thinking about what could make our stay memorable and unique. And they succeeded. From a sunrise breakfastin an ancient fort to moonlit dinner at the sand dunes, and from archery classes to camel rides, every moment was special. I am happy to highly recommend Suryaghar!

The property is beautifully landscaped and the super luxury property inside a fort is like magic. Away from the hustle bustle of Jaisalmer city, Suryagarh allows you to soak yourself in luxury. The rooms, the pool, the restaurants is absolute opulence. The feel of space in every area is soothing for your nerves. The team is is fantastic and was amazed to see the General Manager of the property serving to the guests, that is leading from the front. Go ahead, and plan your event in Suryagarh, the participants will enjoy it with some serious business

Room Tip: You can easily plan a family event or a business event

I didn't know too much in advance about this hotel but it was a revelation and far exceeded expectations. A modern recreation of an old fort may not sound too appealing to those who like the real thing but the attention to detail and the high quality of finish has to be seen to be believed. On arrival you receive a selection of enticing foodie nibbles and a brief guided tour from guest relations. Our room had an enormous bed (9 ft across), lots of silk and subtle lighting behind carved wooden wall panels. You imagine the hotel has employed a team of top class designers but apparantely this is not the case. Service in the restaurant was excellent and nothing was too much trouble. However, there are only a few dining tables in the courtyard where there is a musical performance nightly and these must be booked 24 hours in advance which we were not aware of. I liked the fact that the manager personally greeted each guest every day to ensure their needs were being met. The only downside might be location if you do not have a car and driver as it is about 15 kms from the city. Also the swimming pool was v cold as it was not heated at the time of our visit. Overall I would thoroughly recommend this hotel.

Your drive to this hotel will seem to go on and on, as it's a fair distance from Jaisalmer proper. But when you see this palace rear out of the desert, you will be glad you booked. This hotel was so fantastic and magical. The attention to every detail is amazing, and the hotel is immaculate and calm in the midst of a rather hectic and chaotic city. Our suite was very comfortable, and the bed was excellent. The service is also kind and friendly. My only criticism is that the hotel restaurants are EXTREMELY expensive. They actually screwed up our bill, and when checking out, there was an unpleasant encounter with the front desk who treated me like I was trying to weasel out of a bill until the restaurant manager came out and confirmed they had made a mistake on the bill. That almost soured my experience, but I had such a lovely time otherwise that I still have to recommend this hotel highly.
