The Serai, Jaisalmer

About the Hotel

The Serai is an ode to peace, to open space, to old-fashioned comforts and elegant design. A luxury camp of 21 tented suites set deep in the tranquil Thar Desert but just an hour from Jaisalmer, it's an impossibly romantic set-up, and perfect for honeymooners.

Accommodation details

The Serai has twenty-one luxurious canvas tents, divided into three categories. There are fourteen 'Tented Suites', each with their own veranda, drawing room, spacious air-conditioned bedroom and, of course, en-suite bathroom, covering an area of about 1100 sq. The six 'Luxury Tented Suites' have in addition, a private walled-in garden with a plunge pool. And, the 'Royal Suite' which boasts its own private spa, pool, and lounge tents is the ultimate in luxury living in the desert! The Dining Tent serves delicious western repasts as well as sumptuous local delicacies, using much home-grown organic produce from the camp's organic vegetable and herb garden.

A campfire is lit every night throughout the winter season, and a bar is set up under the stars. Guests may dine, al-fresco, around the fire or anywhere on our estate. A selection of food and refreshments may also be ordered in the tents. The Tented Library Bar is the ideal place to sink into a comfortable leather club-chair with a book and 'burra-peg'!

The Pool, inspired from the ancient step-wells that dot this region, is a luxury in the Desert...

The Spa, created by the world renowned spa company, 'Raison d'Etre' has four individual treatment tents, set around a garden. The Spa Menu offers a variety of treatments, designed to relax and rejuvenate...
