    I have just returned after 21 days India tours, and as an exprienced travelers I can tell you that India is the best country to visit. This review is to tell about HOTEL SURAJ in JAISALMER it was a 500+ years old Haveli, and beautifully done. This house is a place where you can get a friendly family feeling as well as the great roof provides the breathe taking view over the Jain temples and sunset, the vyas family who runs there family Haveli as a Hotel from last 22 years, are really experience and have lots of character in them. I stayed in the Maharaja Suite with orignal 500 years old painting on the walls, as well as i give 5 star to the Manager CHIMMY who do all his best to give the best of him to treat the tourist as well as he can, also he came to pick us up (for free) from the train station early morning 5:00 a.m. in that cold.
    The second best thing of the hotel was there camel safari organization, which was perfect, our camel guide "RAMESH" was extra ordinary and his 2 camels "Rocket and Paradise" were so well trained and ramesh was a great cook too, we also learned make chapatis and vegetables from him, (all food was cooked in the mineral water always a good sign) and at the end of the day when we reached to the dunes it was no body there and only 3 of us. It was my best sleep as me and my wife were sleeping under the millions of stars, and after the end of the trip we came back and got a really great hot shower at our Maharajas room in Kings style.
    I will surely return back to India and jaisalmer to meet Vyas family and more over to Chimmy, Ramesh, Rocket and Paradise.
    Good luck

    Unique Quality: The rooms were clean, Service was outstanding, bathrooms were ok but really clean,
    Great views from roof, nice food in roof top restaurent.
    PRoper attention to us by Chimmy made our stay extra ordinary.
    Highly recomandable to everyone who goes to JAisamer

    Directions: Mr. Navneet Vyas

Stay in a Real Haveli

by Hmmmm about Hotel Suraj -Jaisalmer

This is a wonderful Hotel. It has only four rooms so you have to book. Their is no phone so you have to book by e-mail. Its family run joint and the owner Navneet Vyas is a fantastic man to talk to. The manager is Jimmy, and he is the coolest.

This Hotel, which am told is 500 years old was a house. it has been converted to a hotel. It contains an old Ladies room, a mens room upstairs where we stayed. The Ground floor is a common area where both guests and staff alike watch TV and chat about cricket. At night the family usually goes home to the property directly across but there is always someone in the hotel. Its usually Jimmy.

This hotel exudes charm but i give it the thumbs up for its staff. None better. This Haveli is nicely maintained. It still has the feel of bygone times. The bathroom in my room exuded charm from yesteryear. Often I'd sit in the Balcony with a cup of Jimmy's excellent chai and watch the groups of Tourists come and go and the comes walking around languidly eating the Chapatis people gave them. Food is ok. The Tea is great.

This place has a hot shower (very Slow though), a tv downstairs in Family room. There is no telephone. there is a CD burning shop just adjoining the hotel and a small store that sells drinks and snacks. The owner of this shop is fantastic. A great cricket fan. When we left the shop keeper gave me a Rajastani Gift.
