Nika House has 3 huts built in local materials that respect nature. We offer you a stay closer to nature in the heart of the natural areas of the Thar desert so we contribute to the protection of nature and the well-being of the local population. That is why, Nika house does not have electricity, the water is at your disposal at the well in front of your hut. Currently, we offer a tent for the shower while waiting for the construction of a stone bathroom. Breakfast is included in the price.
“Ratanji is a truly amazing host, who goes all the way to ensure you have a great time at his place. Nika House is your destination for an authentic desert experience, located as it is in the middle of nowhere. There is no electricity this far into the desert, and you can sit down and watch the stars and the lit-up sky all night. Authentic, simple, rural Rajasthani fare is available as food from Ratan's house in the Chhatrel village, and you're well taken care of at all times in the day. For the best experience, reach there during the day, head to the Sam Dunes which are a 40-minute drive away, and take in the unique desert experience in the night. Can't recommend this place enough, especially if you're up for a location away from the city, off the beaten trail.”
We're a happily married English-Indian couple running this Amazing Golden Cosy hotel in the heart of Jaisalmer. This lovely en-suite room has clean bedding, fresh white towels and a sparkling bathroom! There's a seating area too with a TV so you can chill out and relax. It's located in a quiet side street close to The Fort, the Desert, Patwon Havelli and other key tourist attractions. We have a fantastic rooftop restaurant and organise incredible camel safari experiences too.
“We had a fantastic stay at the Golden Marigold Hotel. The pictures make it look nice, but it’s even better than that and we ended up extending our stay in Jaisalmer to spend more time here as we felt so at home. Great high pressure shower for hot showers, large comfy beds and spacious rooms. Unbelievably good value! The rooftop is also a real asset, we spent many hours up here reading with a chai (or beer) enjoying a panoramic view of Jaisalmer. The location is great - just a short walk to the fort. It’s also near to the lake which is definitely worth a visit - we spent our first morning relaxing there after our train got in and it was heavenly. Above all Phote and his team go above and beyond to help you and make sure your stay is as good as possible. Without sounding cliched, it really did feel like a home away from home and we hope to return in the future. As a final point, we arranged camel safari via Phote and had a lovely night under the stars. It does get a little chilly at night so take plenty of layers.”
