Garh Jaisal Haveli is a small, traditional, Indian style hotel located within the ramparts Jaisalmer fort itself. It's right in the heart of the Thar Desert, 10 minutes from Jaisalmer airport or a 6-hour drive from Jodhpur. Once an important part of the camel caravan-trading route, Jaisalmer is today a living medieval city with twisting alleys packed with traders selling local silver and other goods.
The hotels contemporary, chic Indo-French style interior is in direct contrast with the ancient surroundings of this 11th century fort. Each of the 7 en suite rooms has its own unique colour and is decorated in Rajasthani style. All rooms feature unique hand-block printed cotton robes and a beautiful bed quilt, which is available for you to purchase and take home. Second floor rooms offer a little more privacy as they are away from the central courtyard but all have a window seat, lined with cushions, or a balcony offering a view of the local markets, the old town or the nearby sand dunes.
Breakfast is served on the rooftop terrace but for lunch and dinner you will need to head to one of the numerous restaurants nearby. Alternatively the restaurant next to the hotel will deliver meals to the rooftop terrace where you can dine under the star-filled sky. Please note this this hotel should be regarded as basic as no twin rooms are available and it does not have a swimming pool or a lift.
