Suryagarh Hotel – Jaisalmer

Standard

There’s no substitute for staying in the fort wall in Jaislamer, but if you’re looking for something different, Suryagarh, 16 km out of town, looks amazing….and it is.

Rooms start from about $AUS14o for a double (which is all you need) in low season, $AUS 200 for a suite.

Suite

There are nice facilities and walk ways.

And the property looks lovely as the light changes in the evening…..

…when there is also some traditional music and dancing to watch before dinner.

But it is really isolated. (It was good to know to take some drinks and snacks). Rooms have no view (which is why a double is enough, the extra space in the suite is not all that pleasant for sitting) and it’s easy to get ‘cabin fever’. Outside the room, there’s no air-conditioning, so when it’s hot, it’s really hot.  And the walkways are latticed after the ground floor, so it’s easy to feel a bit imprisoned.

Best to get to the hotel late afternoon. It’s not a place to spend the day at.

In fact the best parts are arriving, the evening and breakfast…in fact the food is absolutely delicious. But that deserves a whole story of it’s own…..
