I visited the Desert Springs Resort in the second week of December'19 for a leisure trip with family. Although the initial approach road is not so developed, what you see at the end just more than makes up for it! Since we were three adults and two kids, I was not very sure whether to book two tents or one considering the average size of the tents in all such camps. I chose Desert Spring because it offers the biggest room size in the entire region in its Royal category and is equipped with all amenities that you can think of. To further spruce it up, the cultural program in the evening ends the day on a high with excellent folk performance including both traditional Marwadi Songs and Dance items. The EmCee Sandhya deserves a special mention for her liveliness, witty anchoring and establishing a connect with the audience. The food served has a wide variety and of good quality. I heard that it serves the best food amongst the camps, but can't be sure about it... The sand dunes are also at walking distance of 1-2 KMs and can walk around to enjoy the view any time. In addition, one can opt for a Desert Safari in local Thar jeeps to witness the sunset or sunrise at a cost of Rs. 800-1200 which will into the interiors of the sand dunes for approx 15-20 kms from the camp site with a trip lasting for a couple of hours. All in all, a memorable trip giving full value of money, thanks to the luxurious set up, the evening cultural programs and the proximity to the sand dunes. Highly recommended if you are looking for luxury amidst the desert!

Felt good after reaching there ...didn’t get traditional welcome but never the less rooms and washrooms were clean and evening tea snacks were also okay (can be better). Then They took us to sunset point in sand dunes, that was the perfect place to be. There also they arranged tea water not snacks, which could have been done, but the view for sunset was awesome and my daughter played there for about 1 hour, then it was getting cold in desert so we came back to camp and there we have gala dinner program. That was nicely arranged and snacks were also good drinks were available on paid basis, not too much hyped prices ...but the soft drinks should have been complimentary, the cultural program was nicely arranged with Sandhya anchor, she was also good at her job, then the program came to end after a buffet dinner and we came back to our tents, next day breakfast was also nicely arranged and staff was also courteous and served well.
Highly recommend this place to especially family and group who are planning for Sam.

We had booked one night stay at Desert Springs Resort, it is located off the main road near Kanoi village in a quiet place very close to the sand dunes. We had booked Regale tent which is more expensive than comfort but worth the money as it is more spacious and cleaner. Cultural programme is excellent which is anchored by Sandhya, food is awesome , enough starters and main dishes , people are courteous, main attraction is camel ride to sand dunes at sunset, it's an unforgettable experience, camel ride is included in the room tariff so don't have to pay anything extra except tips at your own will. Compliments to Mr.Singh camp manager who is always available to help or answer any query.

Dear Mr Mayank Bhatia,
First of all, let me compliment you for creating a wonderful camping site to experience the beauty of deserts. The tents are comfortable and food is excellent. The entertainment is also very good with snacks being served on individual tables. Arrangement of drinks was also perfect.
We liked the night time atmosphere and lights of room nos and other lighting is also very good.

We would have given all 5 stars but few things were not upto the mark.
1 Towels were completely dead like a dry leaf.
2. Water served in bottles is of unknown brand which is not a good policy to save few bucks. It is better to give water in dispensers or large flasks . That way you will save plastic of thousands of bottles every year.
3. Stray dogs roaming around in the complex created a havoc in the night by fighting and barking disturbing our sleep.
4 Our driver slept in the vehicle as he said the beds were so horribly dirty that “you won’t clean even your shoe with the bed sheet” (his words).
5 Coffee machine was not kept at the breakfast. You know well coffee drinkers love their coffee in the morning.

For the fellow travelers, I would say this place is amazing and great value for money. Do come here. Just keep the suggestions to Mr Bhatia ( he is the owner) in mind.
In hospitality small things matter so I would give only 3 stars out of 5.

I recently stayed at this property with my family including my 80yr old Grandfather and Grandmother. The resort is located near Kanoi village and is very easy to find with good signages. We were welcomed with welcome drinks and escorted to out tents very quickly. We chose ‘comfort tents’ which were very suffice for a night of stay, loaded with all the amenities required there. The tents are very comfortable with a sitout on the porch, a separate change area with full length mirror and cupboard, the bathroom is good. The high-tea served was average, but the dinner and breakfast were really good, huge spread during both the meals, with multiple options for everyone’s taste buds, and taste was also very good. They also serve starters on the table during the cultural entertainment which were also good. The cultural program was excellent with lineup of talented artists and we had a very fun evening. They have camel safari included in the package, where they take you on camels to a nearby sand dune for sunset, it was a very nice experience, its a 15-20 min camel ride one way, and a beautiful sunset awaits you. Although the resort is some 10kms from popular Sam Sand Dunes, the dune nearby is also very good.

Late post
Been to Jaisalmer in dec 2020, this was not the first time to visit Jaisalmer but yes my first stay in sum. Had to visit with family and specially during pandemic situation so was extra careful for booking and found desert springs. Tents were very cosy, neat and clean. Even it was winters but in tent we really did not feel the temperature. Morning we been to tanot mata and ghantiyali mata temple. Took bharat mala highway road which is amazing and enjoyed the driving. Need to be extra careful with respect to fuel when someone traveling that highway.
Coming back to resort experience I found this place a highly recommended place to stay, food, hospitality and location is amazing. Even for camel safari they are taking to completely different place where there is no crowd.
Staff is very supportive and even I met one of the owner and found him collecting the feedback from guest and instructing his staff on given points.
My next visit as well no other option then desert springs resort.
Thank you for awesome food and hospitality.

Had booked 4 tents for 3 nights here. Food  too bad, first day we went put for activities and gave the keys for cleaning up the room. On coming back after approx 5 hours we saw that all the 4 rooms were in the same condition. On complaining about it, we were told that another group had come so they couldn't make the rooms.
That was a fairly stupid reason. Really Poor service,  bad quality food, really don't recommend coming down to this place, come at your own risk.

It is one of the best Desert camps in Sand Dunes of Jaisalmer. Cottages are very nice and comfortable. Over all ambiance is spectacular. Evening cultural program in Rajsthani Style is awesome along with unlimited Starter, and Rajsthani main dishes which you will enjoy in candle light along with limited choice of drinks.
A must when you visit SAM.There is a provision to attend only the evening cultural program with food and drinks on entry fee basis.

If you visit Jaisalmer, Keep two days aside for dessert activities and a unique experience of staying in a tent. 40 kms from the city of Jaisalmer is the SAM SAND DUNES. Arrive at the resort in morning or evening as per your visit schedule. You must have your own vehicle or taxi at your disposal.
Well maintained Tent with a relaxing deck attached will destress you instantly. I have arrived late evening by road from Jodhpur. (Jaisalmer airport has low connectivity with frequent reschedule be prepared for it, if your flight is from local airport, direct flights are suddenly changed via one stop having layover of upto 11 hours - yes it happened with me. I took a connecting flight from Delhi to Mumbai at my own cost at the last moment, my complain is pending with Spicejet and with Ministry of civil avaiation).
Anyway the cultural evening at the resort will keep your mind and soul pampered with music, dance, food and cocktails.
Next day keep yourself free for the activities a must for all visitors.
Camel ride, dessert sand busing, paragliding, drive the scooter on the sand.
Enjoy dinner again at your resort. Creative artist can make short videos of all the activities, make your own reels for social media and lot more.
Next day check out after breakfast.
Visit the historic Sonar Kella (Trikongarh), Patwaro ki havelli, Salam Singh ki haveli, Gadisagar lake, War museum.
Head for the airport or back to Jodhpur by road (4 hours drive)
Try out 1156 restaurant for lunch or dinner at Jaisalmer city.
Local camel wool blankets, handicraft bedsheets, dress and jewellery and artefacts shopping must be in your wish list.

Breakfast starts fairly early - about 7/7.30am, and goes on till about 10am. Though we had driven down in our car, we found that the resort arranges taxis for guests as & when required.
