“Good tent experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2013

We were there in Oct 2012.We took a bus from Jodhpur to Osian.Owner's brother personally picked us from Osian town in his jeep.Camp is about 15 mins drive from town.People over there are very friendly,polite and always willing to serve you the best possible.Manohar in particular is very helping.Tents are quite neat.In a desert you are bound to expect some sand in your room also.We go there to experience desert life.
We were taken for a camel ride in the evening.This part of desert,unlike Jaisalmer, is more green and has smaller sand dunes.Sunset view is beautiful when you are on top of dune.Back in the camp, dinner is served outside under moonlight.Awesome!
Next morning, we were taken out for sand dunes and village trip.Enroute you get to see plenty of deers,peacock and the place where salman khan's incident happened.When we were close to dunes,our jeep bumped over a big stone and diesel started to leak.Still we were brought to the main road and another vehicle arranged to drop us back to camp.
Overall, a pleasant experience and worth the money you spent.Bar construction was on.Hope its completed by now.

We were going to a wedding in Jodhpur but also wanted a typical Rajasthan desert type experience on the side. A friend suggested the Osian Resort Camp. It looked good on the website and the price was about right. We wouldn't have minded something a little more expensive and better but there seemed no option in that area.

On arrival we found the place bare and unattractive. The linen was dirty as were the tent flaps, the food was awful, everything tasted the same and was dripping with oil. The staff were friendly enough and the folk singers in the evening were very good, took our mind off the messy accommodation. None of the side trips mentioned in the booking materialised. No trips to shepherds, local tribes, potters, weavers, no desert agriculture farm and when we asked about desert wildlife we were pointed to a passing deer! The sand dunes were a disappointment. We couldn't complain to anybody either as the office was in Jodhpur and we were some 70 miles away!

Room Tip: Try a tent less close to the entrance. The kitchen is next door and the staff's yelling is distu...
