It the remote Western reaches of Rajasthan lies the evocative Thar Desert. Here you will find one of the world’s last remaining living citadels, Jaisalmer. Stay at the resplendent boutique palace hotel - Suryagarh, (house of Sun) rising out of the desert on the outskirts of the city. Spend your days exploring the ancient city, or heading off into the sand dunes by camel or four wheel drive uncovering the forgotten fortresses and ancient temple ruins of this remote land.
Away from the heat and dust is the oasis of Suryagarh. With approximately 73 rooms of which nearly half are luxury suites, including independent havelis two-bedroom suites. The cooling sandstone interiors, colonnades and softly hued furnishings, really do create an oasis in the desert. The hotel is a perfect balance of ancient and modern India with babbling water fountains, shaded courtyards and tranquil gardens dotted throughout.
