What I liked:

It was beautifully and unique. Amazing attention to detail, in terms of both the property and the service. We were fully rested and recuperated by just the second day.

What the hotel could do better:

Nothing, had a wonderful stay!

Hotel Description

Sometimes you can tell, just by the sound of the name, that a hotel is going to be something special. Without knowing the medieval history of Jaisalmer, or even much about what a serai is, there’s a certain ring about it. The Serai, Jaisalmer. And if you’re aware of the ancient Kingdom of Jaisalmer, or if the word serai conjures an image of a tented camp, a desert way station, then you’re practically there already.

The basic Tented Suites are built on permanent stone bases, which goes a surprisingly long way towards changing the atmosphere from “roughing it” to “splendid seclusion.” The Luxury Tented Suites add walled gardens with sunken pools, and the Royal Suite is worthy of its name, with a private spa and separate tents for dining and entertaining.

Raison d’Etre handles the spa treatments, both in the Royal Suite and in the dedicated spa tents. It’s an example of how tough conditions — the desert — bring heroic efforts from the staff. Here luxury isn’t strictly a function of absolute plushness: there’s a difficulty factor to be taken account of as well. It’s perhaps a more common sight in the luxury safari camps of southern Africa, but the Serai, Jaisalmer proves it’s a concept that’s equally well suited to the deserts of Rajasthan as well.

Travel advisory: Passport and visa requirements differ from country to country. Please check with your local authority before booking.

Please note: The Serai, Jaisalmer operates seasonally from September - March.

How to get there: The Serai is located just 30 kilometers from the town of Jaisalmer, which is served by an airport (JSA) as well as rail links from most major Indian cities. Please contact customerservice@tablethotels.com to arrange airport transfers.
