A sprawled out old house built around a grand courtyard, this room leads to an interconnected balcony which gives a view of the city below. The room is infused with warmth and luxury and it reminds you of a bygone era. Here, the time stands still when you witness the magnificent sunrise or the breath-taking sunset. Also, This place is the house of Maharaj Mahendra Singh Ji who pioneered Tourism in the Jaisalmer City and put it on the Tourism map of India!
This 12th century palatial property is located inside the Jaisalmer Fort which is the main throb of the city. This place is the biggest Haveli inside the Fort. This place was made to house the King of the yesteryear even before the Palace Museum was built.
Since the fort is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, every nook and corner of this property and its surrounding areas are impregnated with history. The First Royal Family of Jaisalmer resided in this property and it has been passed on for generations now.
The room is well ventilated and flooded with natural sunlight. The furniture here is antique with modern comfortable mattresses and amenities. A clean sanitized attached bathroom offers 24 hours hot & cold water.
This room is on the first floor and can be accessed through a staircase and has a balcony running all along which offers a birds eye view of the city below. The big arched glass windows offer you a perfect view from the very comfort of your room.
The room has Air Conditioning along with the heating facilities available on demand. Also, an electric kettle is provided on request, but how about you try our Masala Chai!
The balcony is sprawled out and gives a breath-taking view of the sunset and the city below. You can relax here, soak up the sun while having your favourite drink and in the night, a canopy of stars sprinkle Stardust upon you.
