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 15 years and has gained an extensive knowledge of the area and culture that she enjoys sharing, and 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 an eco-farm in the Thar desert to share with people our love and passion for desert life and culture. When we arrived it was a patch of desert, with just a single tree.  We originally built a couple of huts and a kitchen in the traditional style and started a vegetable garden, and started taking our guests out to experience one or more nights in the total tranquillity of the Thar Desert.

As you can see we have been working hard, and now we have somewhere very special where we can welcome guests.

During 2018 we realised that it was the desert where we wanted to be, so in early 2019 we said farewell to the guesthouse and are now based full time at the farm.

In recent months we have added a new kitchen and are making further improvements to the farm on an ongoing basis.



There are four huts built in traditional fashion, using local materials...


Besides the private huts, the farm 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.

The Area

From the farm 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.
