Luxury Holidays At The Serai

This secluded, canvas-roofed hotel is situated in the depths of the Great Thar Desert. Posing as an undeniably supreme luxury camp, the sandy, desert-style retreat is harmoniously accompanied by a tented restaurant serving up the most intricate of delicacies, a spa created by the world-renowned Raison d’Etre and acre-upon-acre of orange-streaked desert, littered with Neem trees and parched grasses. The Serai Boutique is a unique addition to the complex and offers an exclusive range of Indian textiles created from the finest threads, as well as promoting artwork from painters based in rural India. Our recommendation: this retreat is better suited to couples, rather than families.

Property Highlights:+
Hotel Experiences

The Serai - renowned for its family recipes, outdoor kitchen and team of expert chefs - invites you to join in a wonderfully interactive cooking session, learning new recipes and witnessing the art of creating The Serai's local delicacies. Using ingredients from the camp's Organic Herb and Vegetable Garden, the chefs will showcase traditional Indian methods of cooking - over a fire or under the ground on hot coals - to create delicious, sumptuous meals for you to sample. Alternatively, the captivating Serai Temple Trail offers a glimpse of Indian superstition, community and religious beliefs - an intellectual and spiritual experience not to be missed.

Wildlife Encounters

Get closer to the captivating wildlife of the Great Thar with The Serai's wonderful Twitchers Trail. 'Twitching' is the activity of attempting to see as many different species of birds as possible, and the expert Serai guides will assist you in becoming an expert, spotting over 200 species of birds - including the endangered Great Indian Bustard, the Painted Sandgrouse and the Spotted Eagle. Camels are the lifeline of the desert and an integral part of the lives of the communities that settle in the region; encounter these charming and intriguing creatures on an unforgettable camel safari in traditional Rajasthani style.

Culture & History

Sitting on a rich history and lasting culture that dates back to the 10th century, the surviving medieval city of Jaisalmer Fort was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2013; discover this enchanted land on a fascinating excursion from The Serai, learning more about its beguiling past. Explore the fascinating abandoned village of Kuldhara - that according to legend was cursed by its fleeing villagers, three hundred years ago - or listen to the beautiful melodies of The Manganiars, traditional bards of the desert whose music about love, war and passion will truly mesmerise you.

Romance

Comprising just a handful of luxury tents that are nestled in the depths of the striking desert, The Serai epitomises seclusion and romance. For utter intimacy and precious, uninterrupted time together, choose a tented suite with its own private walled garden and sleek, sunken pool. Take a once-in-a-lifetime camel ride across the golden sand, before unwinding back at the camp with an indulgent side-by-side massage at the stunning SUJÁN Spa. After soaking up the breathtaking golden hues of the desert sunset with The Thar Sundowner experience, enjoy an intimate and exquisite meal of sumptuous local delicacies at a table for two among the dunes.

Spa & Wellness

A haven of relaxation among the Great Thar Desert, the highly-acclaimed SUJÁN Spa comprises four tranquil tents with charming interiors, set within a secluded, walled garden. Choose from the diverse spa menu of indulgent therapies - from reflexology, to cleansing scrubs, to relaxing massages - each of which use organic and ayurvedic products made with indigenous ingredients and blended with an array of healing herbs, leaving you feeling revitalised, calm and heavenly.
