The Serai

It’s a 20-minute drive through sand and scrub to arrive at The Serai, a desert camp and spa outside bustling Jaisalmer, in western Rajasthan. Set on 23 hectares in the meandering Thar Desert, the property’s remoteness—and subsequent serenity—is rare. The camp’s 21 tents, pitched on platforms of Jaisalmer stone, are enormous enough to feature cozy verandas that lead to spacious bedrooms with indigo-hued dhurries and rosewood writing desks. Cool off in the infinity pool, elevated to take in views of the desert, before departing for a camel ride, with the requisite sundowners waiting atop a sand dune. Dinner back at the camp is traditional fare: a thali (plate) of regional specialties such as sarson gobi, cauliflower marinated in mustard; khumbi ki subzi, a mushroom yogurt curry; and lapsi, a dessert made with broken wheat, clarified butter and sugar.
