Sam sand dunes in Jaisalmer are truly breathtaking. We stayed in the tent of Sam Dhani hotel of rtdc. A wonderful stay. They arranged for a camel cart to take us to the sand dunes. Afterwards there was a performance of folk artists with dinner thrown in. We went in November. Only problem was at night both the tent and... More

Being govt. run the prices are very reasonable. The services are average and the food is ok. We stayed in the tents, though they also have concrete structures. The location is excellent as it is right in front of the biggest dunes.

I and my wife (both senior citizens) visited Jaisalmer during Desert Festival (20th Feb to 22nd Feb 2016). We stayed in the nights of 20th and 21st in RTDC hotel MOOMAL (Room No. 203). This write-up is not for Moomal because the comments for Moomal are quite simple: staff very cooperative, food-so so, occupancy-lean, rates – high (AC room with... More

My expectation was that it will be a below average hotel. But to my surprise hotel rooms (ac cottages) were very clean . Like all rtdc hotel, location is very good, just at start of Sam sand dunes. Food was not good, poor preparation and very limited menu. (Worst of all the rtdc hotels I have stayed at). But the... More

I had read /heard mixed feedback about Sam Dhani. Some folks had asked me to avoid RTDC property because it's a govt set up and service can be an issue. So when we booked it, we were not sure if we made right choice. However, our experience was good. We stayed in the room which was clean. The food quality... More

This is a RTDC hotel with great location. Tents are OK types as it shows signs of wear and tear. But overall service, podium location and cultural events make the stay memorable. Food is decent and all rides etc can be arranged easily as this is the point from where all rides start. For Jaisalmer desert stay this can be... More

We stayed the one night (8 Nov) at Sam Dhani in a tent. It was an awesome experience. The people were nice and accommodative and guided us quite well. We booked both the camel cart and morning jeep safari as well as the local cultural night through the Sam Dhani people itself and enjoyed ourselves. Just one thing jarred –... More
