There is a huge choice of hotels in Jaisalmer and we started at a desert camp (which I would not recommend). The Rawal Kot is a few miles from the medieval town which is great because you can go into the busy, narrow streets and wander round and then come back and relax completely in this serene hotel with beautiful courtyards, pool and spa.
The indoor restaurant is pleasant and quite small but eating outside in the courtyard is lovely. The food is excellent and so fresh (my husband is Indian and he was very impressed) and all the people who work here are so friendly and helpful. We came with our three daughters (all under 12 and their first trip to India) and the chef even cooked pasta for them. Highly recommend the buffets with a mix of Indian and European dishes.
The rooms are tasteful and restful with good bathrooms and showers. It was a delight staying here.
