Welcome to Rawal Kot Jaisalmer
Appearing to rise out of the rocky incline on which it is perched, Hotel Rawal Kot, Jaisalmer, draws its charm from Rajasthan’s traditional, and trademark, the haveli (mansion). We, at Hotel Rawal Kot, are committed to serving you an authentic Rajasthani experience, infused with contemporary efficiency. So while the architecture exudes old world charm, guests find the rooms smart, with tastefully appointed interiors and amongst the best amenities in the city of Jaisalmer. A near perfect blend of the old and the new.
Rooms at Hotel Rawal Kot are well equipped, with all modern comforts and requirements. A close of knit team of highly efficient and intuitive staff is at your service round the clock. Drawing from the concept of a traditional Rajasthani haveli Hotel Rawal Kot has numerous terraces providing a spell binding vista. A soothing dip in the tastefully located swimming pool allows guests to watch the Jaisalmer Fort change colours from sunrise to sunset. On offer in the restaurant are international and Rajasthani favourites, and yet another breathtaking view of the Jaisalmer fort.
To enhance the guest experience, Hotel Rawal Kot organises Jeep and Camel Safaris to the picturesque sand dunes at Khuri and Sam villages. To give guests a close up experience of Rajasthani arts, culture and heritage, Hotel Rawal Kot also arranges folk dances and music by the poolside. In case guests request the hotel could also make arrangements for a tented camp tucked into the shadow of the sand dunes a little distance away from Jaisalmer. That is an unmatched experience.
THE THAR SUNDOWNER
The Thar Desert extends between the Aravalli Hills in the northeast, the Great Rann of Kutch along the coastline, and the alluvial plains of the Indus River in the west and northwest. Most of the desert is covered by huge shifting sand dunes that receive sediments from the alluvial plains and the coast. The sand is highly mobile because of strong winds that sweep across the open expanse at the onset of the monsoon. The Luni is the only river integrated into the desert. Rainfall is limited, only 100–500 mm per year, quenching the thirst of the sand between July and September.The dunes at Jaisalmer are soft, golden hued and warm. The most sublime experience is to sit at the dunes, feel the softness of the sand, and breathe in the best of nature, interspersed with sublime sundowners
THE JAISALMER JAUNT
Jaisalmer Fort in the Indian state of Rajasthan, a living medieval city within the fortifications, is one of the largest in the world. The city spills down the hillside below the ramparts. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Built in 1156 AD by the Rajput ruler Rawal Jaisal, from whom it derives its name, Jaisalmer was an important caravan sarai, an oasis, on the trade route that connected India with Central Asia, Persia and beyond.
Excursions from The Serai to the 10th century desert kingdom of Jaisalmer give you valuable insights into this rich and enchanted land. Every pore of this region is soaked with history and the symbols of civilizations and exchanges between travellers and merchants in search of the unknown. Witness to history, this fabled fort is a jewel embedded in the Thar.
