This secluded, canvas-roofed hotel is situated in the depths of the Great Thar Desert. Posing as an undeniably supreme luxury camp, the sandy, desert-style retreat is harmoniously accompanied by a tented restaurant serving up the most intricate of delicacies, a spa created by the world-renowned Raison d’Etre and acre-upon-acre of orange-streaked desert, littered with Neem trees and parched grasses. The Serai Boutique is a unique addition to the complex and offers an exclusive range of Indian textiles created from the finest threads, as well as promoting artwork from painters based in rural India. Our recommendation: this retreat is better suited to couples, rather than families.
