Exceptional, Luxurious and Delicious Breakfast and Dinners
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 5 Feb 2024
1st Gate was exceptional. I really recommend staying here if you want some peace away from the city.

The interior design was so tasteful. Felt really smart and consistent colour palette around the hotel. As soon as you walk in, there is a gorgeous smell of mint. The room was spacious, smart and very comfortable.

I really recommend the rooftop restaurant it is absolutely delicious. We ate every meal in Jaisalmer there. The food was exceptional. The breakfast is also very good. A huge selection and during the day you can help yourself to cold drinks and freshly baked slices of cake.

The service at First gate was excellent. First Gate was a highlight of my time in India. The gym was good. I also had the most amazing massage here. She was incredible. The oils smelt amazing!

I really hope to return here again next year. A luxurious hotel amongst the spectacular spiritual energy of Jaisalmer.

This is a Unique Boutique hotel. 11 classic suits. The owner and his family and staff take care of the property. They have a amazing Italian Restaurant at the top. Rate the Pizzas best in Rajasthan and not surprising tourists from even Marriott visit to dine. The staff and family go out of their way to care. My son wanted to taste Ghevar- A local sweet, The staff arranged the best in town. I needed asthma medicine and the family arranged this and medicine delivery machine as well. Its located next to the fort and a great way to explore the fort. Kudos to Manoj Purohit and his family and staff.

First of all would like to say that we did not stay at 1st Gate but nature called and we went in to use the facilities and after went into the restaurant to have a drink as it would be deemed rude not too. So so glad we did as we would not have met the wonderful Manoj (co-owner) and his lovely sweet dog called Simba (beagle) Manoj was a man of wise words and intelligence we talked for over an hour or so over a few cups of coffee and green tea!! I will always remember that day and the wise words spoken. He was so welcoming, warm, humble and kind he did not take anything for our drinks. It's not about the money but the impression he left on us.
We wouldvdefinitely stay at 1st Gate if we go back to jaisalmer thank you for your wonderful company and hospitality Manoj and staff.

Room tip: The place to stay and a fantastic authentic Italian pizza in Rajasthan

Fantastic in the hart of Jaisalmer :-) Very helpful staff and amazing roof top restaurant and bar. The rooms are each different and it's worth spending a little more for one of the beautiful suites. Will definitely come again!

Room tip: Book in advance as during the holiday season it books out fast...

Lovely hotel with lots of character and wonderful, very friendly staff.
We got such a warm welcome on arrival and got offered tea, coffee and a cold drink.

Beautiful room with snacks, fruit and plenty of water.

Great location overlooking the Golden Fort. Nice semi indoor pool which was so refreshing in the desert heat, lots of towels and water available.

Fabulous restaurant on the roof top serving delicious food.
Wish we could have stayed longer!
