Set on a one hundred acre private estate of indigenous desert scrub, The Serai 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. Evenings are spent under the vast expanse of the desert sky, punctuated by the stars and ancient melodies of Manganiyar folk musicians whose songs have haunted these dunes for centuries.
The SUJÁN connection to Jaisalmer is one of friendship, of personal connections, of a family being drawn to a destination decades ago, that is favoured by many today. Our luxurious desert camp and spa that was established in 2008 is a spectacular getaway. In its first year, The Serai was an early Indian property to become a member of Relais & Châteaux. Many of the experiences shared at The Serai would not have been possible without the collaboration of local communities. The ancient folk musicians, who sang for our family when we first came here in 1971, are the same family of musicians who share their music around the campfire today at The Serai.
Our guide on that first journey many decades ago, continues to walk our guests through the history and legacies of Jaisalmer.
