A spectacular experience
We had a wonderful time here. One of the most spectacular experiences so far. We are very thankful to have shared Diwali with the people here. Everyone was so very wonderful sharing their culture with us. Truly memorable! Thank you.

Remote, authentic and a true Indian Experience
I have visited Dera Dune Resort in Nov. 2012 and was just overwhelmed by this place. Away from bustling Rajasthan cities this places is a complete contrast and allows you to unwind and relax. I was taken at first sight when I entered the lounge/dining room with the colorful cotton ceiling deco. The food was superb and the village tour a lovely experience. I can only recommend to spend a few days here in addition to any Rajasthan trip.

Oasis in the desert
Lifetime Experience at a place, far from the maddening crowd. Beautiful location, great hospitality. After a long journey one feels rejuvenated after seeing the place atop a sand dune.
Must visit to experience life in the desert...

A Unique Experience
We went on a photographic tour of Rajasthan and spent time in the Jamba area where this unique hotel is built. The hotel itself is built on top of a 100 foot high sand dune. Its mission is to bring the traveler into the heart of the Indian desert to experience the living culture of the desert. The view overlookig the desert is abolutely wonderful, particularly in the early morning and at sunset (with a glass of wine in hand) The accomodations are quite luxurious with one large room per guest house, most of which surround a beautiful swimming pool with Mughal style architectural embellishments. We arrived by jeeps and then were taken around to visit local villages where one could photograph and buy local crafts. There is a sanctuary for Demoiselle Cranes quite close by and Jodphur and Jaisalmer present good day trip possibilities. Camel rides are also available and a visit to the local salt mines was amazing. The food was excellent and the staff helpful and attentive. Hair dryers were in each room and there was an excellent same day cleaning service. We thoroughly enjoyed spending two nights on top of a sand dune.
