Reviewed March 22, 2014

Pros:

a. Located off the main road , beyond the more crowded camps
b. Good facilities in the tent
c. Cultural programs in the evening are well organized
d. Camel ride is a once in a lifetime experience , arranged by the camp

Cons:

a. Extremely FRIGID in Dec. We stayed in the last week of Dec and it touched 3 degrees . Staying in a tent , wrapped in layers of wool was not enough to keep us warm

Golden Dunes is a smaller more intimate site, not like some of the larger sites on the main road. From Golden Dunes you cannot see any other sites and have a feeling of being away from it all. The staff are wonderful and we received 5* treatment. The tent is large with a bathroom attached behind – we were in the ‘swiss cottage’ therefore had 24 hour hot water and electricity. We cannot comment on the shower as it was so cold we didn’t take our clothes off for 3 days and 2 nights – sleeping fully clothed with hats and gloves, don’t go in December! One night is sufficient – the evenings entertainment is lovely, we all sat around the fire and chatted – take your own drink – although there is an inexpensive bar. The food was tasty and hot. If you arrived at the bus station it is a 45 minute drive to the camp and cost us £16. We would recommend this lovely camp, the staff are so helpful and kind and speak good English. It is a fun experience for one night. The camel ride was included in Agoda price – lovely to see the sunset whilst riding a very tall camel through the Thar desert.

Room Tip: The Swiss Cottage has 24hr hot water and electricity.
