Rising mirage-like from the Thar Desert's golden sands, the Serai's tented hideaway draws inspiration from the royal caravan sites of Rajputana. Just a 30-minute drive outside of the Golden City of Jaisalmer, the camp has 21 white canvas tents raised on plinths of honey-hued sandstone, each with their own outdoor verandah, and some with private walled gardens and plunge pools too.
Interiors shimmer in white and gold, decked out with mahogany campaign furniture and vivid splashes of Rajasthani colour which match the turbans of the charming staff. Days are filled with camel safaris, jaunts to Jaisalmer's majestic fort, or simply adapting to the slow pace of desert life with an ayurvedic massage in one of the breezy spa tents. Sundowners on the dunes are followed by lantern-lit dinners under the star-strewn sky, accompanied by the hauntingly beautiful melodies of traditional Manganiyar folk musicians.
