Welcome to my place which is an ancestral property of mine belonging in my family since the past 5 generations. I have been hosting here since the last 10 years.
Once you're here, you'll forget your worries in this beautiful and comfortable place, with the warm hospitality and splendor lingering in your mind everlastingly. My place is built in heritage style with some of the most exclusive and artistically furnished rooms, modern amenities and ambiance in Jaisalmer city.
This 18th century house where you will be living during your stay was built more than 250 years ago but I renovated it around 5 years back to keep it abreast with modern amenities. The place is located in Jaisalmer Fort and also boasts of an amazing Sunset view from the rooftop. The place is not only serene but also has an amazing aesthetic feel to it. You can Sit, Relax & Soak in the environment while watching the Rustic Rajasthani life unfold in front of you.
The rooms here have Double beds with Bedside lamps and the mattresses are comfortable and great for a rejuvenating sleep. I have personally seen the design of the rooms and have tried my best to keep them abreast with modern amenities. 4 of the rooms have Air conditioning and the rest 2 which are located on the ground floor have ceiling fan for cooling. 2 of the rooms have TV and are located on the 2nd floor being accessible through the staircase. A desk/work space is available in rooms located on the 1st and the 2nd floor. There is an attached bathroom with 24 hours access to Hot & Cold water in every room. A stay here will not only rejuvenate you but also enthrall you with the sheer beauty of the city.
My place is situated inside the Jaisalmer Fort which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is not only one of the largest Fort in the country but it is also the largest living fort in the whole of Asia. A walk of 150 meters from the main square of the Fort reaches you to my place. Since my place is located inside the lanes of the Fort, you’ll not be able to bring your own vehicle and would have to walk the small distance (Don’t worry, we can send runners for you!). There are numerous Jain Temples & the Palace Museum nearby and you can take in the ancient history just by walking through the small lanes of the Fort and witness how people are living in it from ages.
