The Serai Jaisalmer,
Info : The Serai Jaisalmer
Inspired by the Rajputana royal caravan sites, Serai Jaisalmer sits on 100 acres of desert scrub and finds a stunning balance between desert mysticism, local customs, and pure indulgent luxury. You can witness rural life at its most authentic, with shepherds, children going to school, and an incredible biodiversity on your doorstep. At the same time, you can expect incredible cuisine, stunning surrounds, and glamorous tents with plenty of luxury touches.
The highlight in Jaisalmer is the golden desert itself, and you’ll be right in the heart of it. The UNESCO World Heritage listed sandstone fort looking down upon the land from a great height has earned Jaisalmer its reputation as the Golden City. Seven intricate Jain temples lie inside the fort’s perimeter. Explore the numerous old temples, havelis and tombs in the old city. At the desert camp, you can relax in the Sujan Spa, spend some time in the stunning pool, designed as an inverted Rajasthani step well, or kick back in a club chair at the bar with a cocktail. Foodies will not be disappointed: the cuisine here is excellent.
There are fourteen tented suites, six luxury tented suites, and one indulgent Royal Suite with its own plunge pool, spa, and lounge area. The detail that has gone into their construction is impressive. All tents have their own private bathroom and terrace, and are sumptuously furnished, of course.
The Sujan Group is well known for their impeccable service and they take great pleasure in removing the hassle from everything so that guests can simply relax. If you want a desert experience with luxury tents, incredible food, and absolute comfort, Serai Jaisalmer is as good as it gets.
Luxury - Luxury hotels would have a superb level of service, very comfortable and usually spacious bedrooms, excellent food, great design and character. For us, when we visited, these places all had the 'wow factor'. A luxury hotel should satisfy the criteria of the most discerning clients.
The train journey from Calcutta to Darjeeling was a wonderful experience of the real India whilst everyone we met was friendly and courteous.
