Roaming in the Desert

The Serai, Jaisalmer, Chandan – Rajasthan

The Serai, Jaisalmer, luxurious desert camp and spa, close to the medieval city of Jaisalmer is a spectacular getaway. Set on a hundred-acre private estate of indigenous desert scrub, the Serai draws inspiration from the designs of the royal caravan sites of Rajputana blending their dash and vivacity with modern amenities and services. There is no better place from which to venture into the mystical environs of Jaisalmer or discover its fabled golden fortress, now a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Evenings are spent under the dome of a starlit desert sky, punctuated by the ancient melodies of Manganiyar tribesmen whose songs have haunted these dunes for centuries.
