This outrageously luxurious camp is situated outside Jaisalmer, in desert scrubland where shepherds and villagers wander. It takes accommodation in the area to a new high and the 21 huge tents are magnificently decorated in desert colours. The finest linen, hand made furniture, Jaisalmer stone floors and beds, and local artefacts all blend to create an atmosphere which is very easy on the eye. With a large sitting area inside and outside, and immaculate, roomy bathrooms, the tents are amongst the largest and finest in all India.
No expense has been spared and the dining tent, lounge tent and lobby tent, also boast exceptionally comfortable furniture and inspired design. Iconic sand dunes are just a short drive / camel ride away, and these are dunes where you will enjoy a peaceful sundowner and not have to watch sunset with the crowds! One feels ultimately remote and serenely distant from the hustle and bustle of the city and yet not an iota of comfort is compromised.
A visit here allows one a rare glimpse into unhassled desert life, a pampering treat in the exquisite Raison D'Etre spa, a doze by the gorgeous pool, or an impossibly romantic dinner in the moonlight, under a star-clad sky. The camp has a magical, almost fairytale feel to it as it rises out of the desert sands. The Serai is the epitome of desert luxury and oozes style and sophistication.
Sujan Luxury Hotels (The Serai and Sher Bagh) pride themselves in providing luxurious and authentic experiences to their guests. The highest levels of luxury and personalized service are their mantras, but so too is respect for the environment, local communities and the underprivileged. They do not believe their guests should have to worry about how much water they use or how many towels and clothes they give for laundry. That is, in their eyes, for them worry about, and they take the necessary steps to minimize their guests' and their impact on the environment.
They believe we should give back to the community and at The Serai they organized veterinary camps that treated about 600 cattle head, as well as health camps and eye check ups free of cost for their neighboring villages. They constantly endeavor to work with the villages around them by donating blackboards to schools or books, and other teaching apparatus. They have a state-of-the-art filtration system for their swimming pool which allows them to recycle, and therefore conserve precious ground water.
At each hotel, they predominantly employ locals, whom they train for each of the departments. They also practice organic gardening and encourage neighboring farmers to do the same.
