Fodor's Expert Review Suryagarh
Kahala Phata, Sam Rd., Jaisalmer, Rajasthan, 345001, India
Like a mirage in the desert, this contemporary, elegant fort rises out of the sand, luring you to its ramparts—once inside, the interior is equally impressive. Built in old world style—high ceilings, sweeping marble floors, arches, antiques, enormous courtyards, reflection pools, and spacious, richly-furnished rooms—it is an enormous hotel. Located on the road going out to the Sam dunes, Suryagarh, constructed and carved breathtakingly from yellow sandstone, is isolated from Jaisalmer. Given that you are marooned in the Thar every facility has been provided for—billiards, gym, pool, spa, a bar, and several restaurants. They also organize a wide variety of excursions.
