SUJÁN The Serai
Jaisalmer

Top 10s logo 

SUJÁN The Serai is one of Ampersand's Top Ten Hotels in Rajasthan.

Set on a one-hundred-acre private estate of indigenous desert scrub, The Serai is truly an oasis in the desert and 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 preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet booking age. They were a delight to deal with!

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.

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
I would recommend Ampersand without any hesitation!!! The best travel agent that I’ve ever had dealings with. Everything – from the individual care and attention in helping to plan the trip, through to the efficiency of the agents on the ground in India – was handled brilliantly. An absolutely first-class service all round.
- Matthew Annable, Rajasthan, 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
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, 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
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
