Date of visit: - 27th Oct 2013. Pick up from Jaisalmer railway station is arranged by Mahadevresort on paid basis. We stayed in Mahadev resort for one night, enjoyed camel safari and cultural program and next morning a drop on paid basis is arranged to our hotel.
Mahadev Resort is one few permanent resorts in sam sand dunes as most of the resorts are only temporarily created for few months of in-season. Unlike temporary tents Mahadev Resort have solid built AC rooms converted into tents with big attached bathrooms. The resort is created to give a traditional look with option of mud cottages (mud cottages are very small but they too have attached bathroom).The resort provide a good desert safari and the food here is just awesome.
We liked everything about this resort, it was just by chance that at the time of our stay there were no other guests in the resort because of which evening become a little dull as the resort didn’t organize cultural program in resort but accommodated us in one of the neighboring resort for it. After watching the program we came back to Mahadev resort and had a mouthwatering dinner.
Mr. Choudhary the owner of the resort is very helpful. I will surely like to visit this place again.
Tip: - Before booking call up the resort to check whether they have other bookings (guest) on your date of visit or try to visit in a group to have more fun in cultural program. Rest everything is perfect.
