Well first of all don't compare this with chokidani Jaipur hell Lot of difference. We went in high season and all tents were full. The rooms are very good for a tent ,well furnished bathroom (no hooks for towel) rest all good . It's pretty huge. the cultural evenings can definitely be improved . About the food if you want ethnic village Rajasthani food it's great . But no non veg and only 3 dishes in breakfast buffet ( poha,puri bhaji and toasts) and you want get any snacks.
The complimentary camel rides were nice.
With respect to rooms this is great . With respect to food there is definitely room for

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.

our train reached in the morning ... and when we reached the tents by noon we were told that people check in by evening ... no one told us about that earlier .... it took 2 hrs for them to sort out everything and give us a tent ....
It was October and the tents were pretty hot till late evening and they did not had any provision of fan, after 3-4 follow up we were given a table fan... the water in the bath was extremely dirty...
Since the property is listed as luxury tents, expectations were different.....
Food was average.... and below average for what Chokhi Dhani is known for... overall a very bad experience... will not recommend anyone

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.

The Chokhidhani Jaisalmer was a disastrous place, i went there with 100% advance payment booking, which was my biggest mistake. between we four family friends (couples) went there with our children... but the service and surrounding was a mess: following are the implications:
1. No Hot water for bath or for to get fresh
2. No food service and room service after evening
3. The attendant who cleans your toilet also provides you food and room service..unbelievable
4. Very high tarrif as compared to the bogus services...
5. No children play area or no activity organized ...
6. no pick and drop facility in odd hours..
7. Food served not properly cooked... messy and oily/spice even after discretion..
8. Room temperature not maintained, AC not properly working...
9. Hidden rate, facility charges and taxes are levied...
10. no proper tarrif plan and refund policy....
after spending about 1.5 lacs we have suffered, but you dont please after reading this
patheric review of chokhi Dhani,,, GOOD FOR NOTHING... WAS A HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE..
