Shahi Palace Hotel Review: A heart in Jaisalmer


There’s a heart that exists in India- its here!

My stay at Shahi Palace, Jaisalmer was one of my best memories of India and its heart. It’s not only about experiencing the desert calm (and Shahi’s wonderful camel safari to the Thar Desert w/ the “Camel Man”) but it’s truly about the people and the friendships that you make along the way.

Located just outside of Jaisalmer fort walls is Shahi Palace. As a remodeled haveli and small desert palace, the rooms were surprisingly fashionable and stylish. Living in New York City and having an appreciation for good design, I wonder why more chic hotels and havelis can’t hire Shahi Palace’s interior designer. The rooms are all clean, cozy and full of color.

 Staying here was truly an oasis of peace. The food was good and rooftop view of the Jaisalmer fortress was especially stunning at night.

The “Shahi Family” really extends their caring heart and understanding to you as a traveler and they’ve helped to shape my experience of Jaisalmer and India, in a positive way. Not to mention, they really love their job and it shows. They enjoy being hosts to your experience in Jaisalmer and their gestures are sincere.


Before I arrived at Shahi, my trip was going in a wrong direction (my friends and I got suckered into taking a scam tour in Delhi). Shahi Palace was my original choice of stay and I’m glad I stayed there, despite tour plans. The Shahi folks brought me under their wing and helped me turn my trip around and put it back on the right track! They were amazing- honest, concerned, helpful, passionate & full of heart. They were very generous with their time & resources. I trust these guys- they are GOOD people with the very best intentions.

I wish I got to spend more time in Jaisalmer. I look forward to returning here the next time I return to Jaisalmer!

Thanks to my new friends- you guys rock!
