SUJÁN The Serai
Jaisalmer

SUJÁN The Serai truly is an oasis in the desert. Set on a one-hundred-acre private estate of indigenous desert scrub, The Serai draws inspiration from the royal caravan sites of Rajputana; blending the dash and vivacity of this Land of Kings. There is no better place from which to venture into the mystical environs of Jaisalmer to discover its fabled golden fortress, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The stunning tented desert camp, set deep in the tranquil and mystical Thar, is an impossibly romantic set-up; 21 luxurious white canvas suites, raised on honeyed sandstone and each with a terrace lounge, sitting room with writing desk, air-conditioned bedroom and a stylish his and hers double sink bathroom. Six of these suites also have private walled in gardens with private plunge pools. The Royal Suite, the cream of the crop, boasts its own heated pool, spa, lounge and dining tent, and is set in an exclusive, walled off compound for the ultimate in privacy and exclusivity.

Dining at The Serai is another exceptional experience, and one can expect local delicacies as well as western favourites on the daily changing menus using fresh homegrown organic ingredients. Guests can dine in the dining tent, or for a special experience choose from any of the spectacular locations anywhere on site. The Bar is the best place to relax in complete comfort, surrounded by wonderful interiors, as you enjoy the cocktails or other refreshing concoctions.

Whilst the other SUJÁN camps of Jawai and Sher Bagh take care of the wildlife enthusiasts, the highly acclaimed SUJÁN Spa at The Serai is one of the main reasons people travel here. From rousing reflexology to cleansing scrubs and deeply relaxing massages, the organic and ayurvedic products blended with an array of healing herbs leave you feeling utterly heavenly.

Spend your days in the spa or explore the unique and breath-taking countryside on a camel safari or desert drive. The tailored excursions led by experienced guides take guests to some beautiful places off the beaten track as well as to the medieval city and fort of Jaisalmer. Evenings can be spent under the vast expanse of the desert sky punctuated by the twinkling stars, whilst sipping a G&T and listening to the ancient melodies of Manganiyar folk musicians who’ve sung their songs to the SUJÁN family for generations.

Ampersand’s details preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet/direct booking age. Shalmali was a delight to work with – before and during our trip.
- Mr David Wallace, North India
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
We have been on expensive and luxurious holidays in the past, but the service and communication Ampersand has provided has far exceeded those offered by other agencies.
- Susan Ford, India
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
