Nomads: A Desert Love Story
We are an English and Indian couple, Alex and Aladin, and we welcome you to our peaceful desert haven.
Alex has been coming to Jaisalmer for the past 20 years and has gained an extensive knowledge of the area and culture that she enjoys sharing. Aladin comes from a farming family in a small village in the heart of the Thar desert, and learnt the tourist trade working under a Austrian guy for 8 years. We both understand the needs of travellers, and try our best to meet all your requirements to make your stay as comfortable hassle free and enjoyable as possible.
After some years running the highly-successful Nomads Guesthouse in Jaisalmer, we started building a retreat in the Thar desert to share with people our love and passion for desert life and culture.
Music & Dance
Alex has been dancing for many years. She taught circle dancing in the UK, and in Rajasthan spent many years studying under the world-famous Rajasthani folk dancer Harish. The magical desert environment is ideal for the musicians and dancers who often come to visit the retreat and practise their arts.
The retreat has a range of facilities. There is a kitchen which guests can use and a shared bathroom. Outside there are shaded sitting areas where you can relax and watch the world go (very) slowly by.
From the retreat you can explore the desert and visit the local village. We can also arrange jeep trips to the surrounding area where you can visit some of the fascinating places that the Thar desert holds.
