Was the trip of a lifetime. The owner, Karan Singh Bhati, his wife and son all played host to our group. The food, the hospitality, the service and the attention to detail.... Were worthy of a 7 star property. Karan organised a dune top dinner.... The entire experience was simply outstanding. Highly recommend this resort 90 kms(90 mins drive from Jodhpur Airport)

As a traveler, you stay in different places but there are only a few which stick in your memories forever. Desert Hermitage is one place, you enter this place and you would be totally amazed by the hospitality offered to you. The host of the place is so warm and you would feel at home. The dinner at the dunes is something that would take you away from the busy world and place you near to the warmth of the humans around you. You would totally feel at peace and it will remind you that it's worth experiencing life without these technological advancements.

a nice property with lovely hosts. The theme of paying tribute to the martyrs is heart touching. The family boasts of a wonderful and glorious history in Indian army. The villa rooms are spacious and warn during winters with nice wooden interiors and lovely balcony sit out. The hosts put in extra efforts to satisfy the guests. Its a remote place so dont expect five star luxury , but its good for a break away from hustle and bustle of the city. dinner on the dines is unique and wonderful experience. The service is good , though they can do better by employing additional staff. Food is good, made to order, not lavish but sufficient enough. Its good for a short break amongst the rural India, amidst a small area of thar desert. Its a compact property, dont expect ultra modern luxuries , then you will be satisfied, and will surely check out with a smile . nice and peaceful place. They can still do better by adding some indoor games and children activities, and by organising some folk dance or similar activities during stay, as there is not much to do around the resort. Its good to spend couple of nights . Dune dinner was excellent. Theres some room for improvement and uplifting the outer areas of the property , by levelling the walking track and adding some activities like TT, badminton etc. They can also do better by adding some more items to the menu. Ofcourse, its good to spend time your family here. Thx for the hospitality.

We are keen travelers and just did 87 day road trip soon after LOCKDOWN. We stayed in close to 40 properties. Staying at desert hermitage was easily among top five. Awesome family run small place.Not touristy at all.Fine bungalows with private terraces and veranda. You cd take almost open air shower.very civilized villas in pine wood and sandstone. Tasty authentic rajasthan cuisine and dinner they organize on sand dunes is princely.I ve been to various places in thar desert but garha sand dunes are finest and untouched. U don't even see any earlier foot prints.Owner karans family has military background and he has a million lovely stories to share with you. His son Diggy is a delight. They even made our drinks complimentary which is uncommon in commercial tourist industry today.Even their 4x4 is at your disposal for dune bashing.I ve stayed in Serai..Manvar and various other places in JAISALMER but desert hermitage was an unforgettable experience. Icing on the cake is that it is less than 2 hrs drive from jodhpur. They also have 3 most gentle German shepherds. Just go there and you will be amply rewarded. Their dinner on dunes will be one of our most amazing experiences. Even a clay oven was transported just for 2 of us.once again highly recommended.

It’s not just a hotel it’s an experience which stays with you for life time.. they make u feel at home... lip smacking food... and the best is yet to come... dinning at a private dune.. camel ride... sunset in desert are sooo under rated... the candle light dinner under the sky full of stars... it’s an unforgettable experience.. the best was when our 2.5 year daughter remembered the 3 dogs the owner have at Desert Hermitage and asked me “Mumma we went to the village... what were name of the dogs?? I want to go there again”...also they took us for village visit and chasing chinkara in the vicinity... it’s not a 5 star hotel, truly it’s a million star hotel
