Prince Desert Camp

Reviewed 8 March 2014

This is my most lasting memory. I left my passport and all my $ behind in my money belt. We had driven only about 15 minutes when our driver received a call that it had been left behind. Everything was returned to me. How great was that! It could have been a disaster. Thanks to all for being so honest! For this alone you get 5 stars.
It was really a fun stay to be in a tent in the desert. We arrived late afternoon and were advised to put our things in the tent, freshen up and invited to hop a camel to watch the sunset in the desert. That was a great experience. The camel drivers spoke English well, were friendly and really good looking!
The tents are large, pillows are hard, and we did not have hot water for 2 days. The water heater was fueled by wood and no one lit the fire. Food was pretty good, staff charming and very eager to please. Of course there is no WiFi. It's a tent camp, not a hotel.
There was live local music around a fire with dancing at night. Snacks were free and great; warm roasted peanuts and two other things I didn't know. There were drinks for purchase. We really loved this place but I think 2 nights was the right length of time to stay.

Room Tip: I think they are all the same.

We pre-booked this place from Tripadvisor for 2 days. Our hopes were to have peaceful time away from day life. Turned out to be it was better than our expectations.
The service was excellent. They made lunch on request when we were the only ones there at noon @ reasonable price. The staff were more than willing to help us with smile.
Located next to famous SAM Dunes, we managed to visit the dunes thrice once by camel and twice by foot. (Camel guys take you to the DUNES and you can pay extra to ride further). The Sunrise ad Sunset was awesome. The evening campfire and cultural events were good.
Only thing I would caution travellers is using transport by them. Although it was cheaper and convenient, we had a bad experience of waiting for couple of hours either way.

From the word go it started feeling that it is different. The hospitality and attitude for service is unparallel. Everyone is willing and ready to help you. We at once forgot that this is one of the camp which has kind of best location with Sand dunes just within walking distance and no other camp near by which makes it a great place to be in. Full marks for everything.

Room Tip: There are 20 tents in all and almost everyone has the similar advantage

Its surprising that Lonely Planet does not cover PRINCE DESERT CAMP --the most beautiful resort & tented camp of rajasthan.
This place has been functional for now 2 years & we discovered this place IN jaislamer to stay in the most charming place.
The food was excellent,the rooms beautiful,the camp was stunnig & the safaris both Jeep & Camel the best in Rajasthan.

Room Tip: tents all are very good

We had not pre-booked this place, but decision to stay here was just perfect.

The tents are very nice, new and luxurious. It has a good bathroom and toilet with luxury fittings.

The camp's location is just perfect, besides the dunes and very isolated, far away from the common camping sites, where you will often find loud DJ and overcrowding. At Prince, you can experience the calmness and serenity while you stay. Cultural program in the evening was very good, followed by sumptuous dinner.

Camel ride and watching the sunset is an unforgettable experience. Just wake up early morning and walk onto the dunes.... and you can even see the sun rise from the desert !!

People are very friendly and service is very good.

I stayed at prince Desert Camp Christmas Eve and had a wonderful experience. The Camp is beautiful and the staff are extremely nice, thoughtful and helpful. Our camel safari was beautiful and there were traditional musicians and dancers who performed in the evening by a campfire who were fantastic. jethu and his team were extremely nice and went out of their way to make sure the guests were comfortable and enjoyed themselves. jethu is the owner and is deservedly proud of his camp. Mr. Minsk who met our train and accompanied us on our camel ride was very nice and helpful. The dinner and breakfast were delicious. Also, as a gay couple we felt comfortable and welcomed. Thank you to everyone at prince
Big tips. IF YOU ARE LOOKIMG CLEAN AND PRIVATE DUNES JUST GO TO PRINCE MUST WAIL TO NIGHT TIME AFTER DINNER CAMP FIRE ON DUNES WICH IS BEST

The prince desert Camp is an exclusive camp experince at the golden sanddunes of sam lakhmana dunes.Every time you step onto the endless expanse of sun-kissed, gilded sands of Jaisalmer in Rajasthan, your sense are ensconced in the calming tranquility and stillness of the place. The camp promises a truly unparalleled experience of the desert in itselement. It is a toast to the erstwhile Maharajas and you are treated to one with a panache that leves you overwhelmed. Just as the royalty camped it Tents(khemas) away from the palaces, the resort spins a similar ambience with its modern Swiss cottage tents right in the midst of the desert. Just as the royalty traversed stretches of desert on camels, the evenings see you astride colorfully caparisoned camels led by ethnically dressed butlers as you begin your sojourn of miles of shimmering sand dunes ito the sunset.
