Visited in August with friends halted one night at the hotel and one night at the dessert, food is always an issue in Jaisalmer dont know the reason for that but seems like water karma must be the reason i presume, good cultural fare in evening and performance of the artist is one thing you must not miss.

Worth visiting place of entertainment n mouth watering traditional Rajasthani food, Location wise near to Sand dune, Sand dune trip will be arranged by hotel & given as complimentary. Tents are build nicely with basic facilities like TV, fan, shower etc. Food quality is also good, but tariff is on higher side. Lots of other camps are available in the same area with better options & lesser tariff. Not True Value of Money ...Chakresh_1@yahoo.com

the stay amongst sand was awsome.. though the staff is cooprative but it does not provide facillitieas up to tha mark as compared to the charges and brand name.. the food served was awsome and was served with love and affection.. was a nice experience overall with evening festivities...

The place was visited in December 2012 with family members.
The camp is nicely located near sam dumes. However, apart from this and price there was nothing exceptional in this camp.
Complementary Camel Ride was pathetically managed. Evening snacks, dinner, there is nothing which can be termed excellent, considering the amount paid.
Artist performance in evening is somewhat good.
Tents are not very well managed,neither the wash room upkeep was good.

I am one of those unlucky customers of yours who fell for the name and reputation the name Chokhi Dhani holds.
But here is a brief account of problems faced by us in the resort, Jaisalmer camps and resort near the dunes.
As we entered the resort we found that there was no water in the bathrooms. Reason- the motor was not working since morning. I wonder that such situations being normal in place like Jaisalmer, the resort never thought of a backup.
Then we waited for the promised snacks on our arrival. With 2 people serving the snacks it took almost 45 minutes to get a plate of mix pakoras and a cup of tea. Though less the pakoras were tasty.
After that we left for camel safari provided by the resort.
Fortunately water supply was there now.
But there was no light in the rooms and outside lamp wasn't working as well. After asking for the bulb to be replaced 3-4 times the concerned person replied that there was no bulb in the store. Stuck in such a situation I asked him to get bulbs from unoccupied tents. Then I helped the person to get the table and tried putting the bulb as he was short and could not reach.
Some entertainment with puppet show, magic show and folk dance. Dinner was very good with the traditional manvaar of rajasthanis.
We felt like having a cup of tea, but we found there is no room service provided. Watching TV was a task as it took 4 staff to fix the same.
After that we realised that all we spoke could be clearly heard in the tent nearby, so again it is a place which is a no-no for people wanting privacy.
Morning was pleasant till we decided to take bath. There was no hot water in the taps. With winters approaching it was difficult to manage without it. We found that the geyser was not working. Manager suggested sending hot water buckets to our rooms. The water was so muddy, one could not think of even washing his hands with it. We suggested to open bathrooms of some other rooms where we could bathe with running water. I spoke to Mr. Pradyuman (General Manager of the resort) on phone, and I guess I had just woken him up at 9:00 am, so he was yawning all the time or it was just his ignorance. He suggested sending over a new water heater from Jaisalmer once the shop opens, thinking we were fools to wait for 2 hours for it. We gave up on requests and decided to bathe with whatever was available.
We headed for breakfast where we were served oily aalu sabji and poha. Even water served in the glasses had mud in it.
Forgetting all issues I only asked manager to write all the problems faced by us along with his justifications why such problems occurred. Disagreeing to do so, I have recorded the conversation without his knowledge where he confesses or excuses about problems faced by us.
