Jhopri Traditional Desert Huts
We’ll collect you from Jaisalmer bus or train station (collection from the airport has a small charge) and bring you to Nomads Desert Retreat.
Besides your accommodation and breakfast, lunch and dinner, the following is included:
- Drinking water
- Use of kitchen
- Use of outside areas and seating
- Shared bathroom
If the huts are all full or if there’s extra people in your party, we have a few possibilities for you:
We have spare mattresses and bedding, so we have sunbeds which could be used in a hut. Also we could make up a bed on the floor.
On warm nights we can make up beds outside and you can sleep under the stars. Both ourselves and our guests often do this, it’s a great experience!
We can also offer a small 2 person tent which you can book via our booking search.
Any extra people will have all the same facilities and amenities, including food, water and pickup from Jaisalmer.
If you are going to need extra accommodation, please contact us in advance to discuss.
For those on a very tight budget (or if the huts are all full) we can offer a small 2 person tent. You have all the same facilities and amenities, including food, water and pickup from Jaisalmer.
We will sometimes accept volunteers at the retreat if you’d like to help with our work. We would ask for assistance with things like gardening, wood collection, general helping around the retreat, and with any ongoing projects. We’ll provide accommodation and just ask for a small contribution for food.
If you’re interested in volunteering at Nomads, please contact us and let’s have a chat!
We are an English and Indian couple, Alex and Aladin. After running Nomads Guesthouse in Jaisalmer, we started building a home in the Thar desert to share our love and passion for desert life and culture.
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.
