The camp is located around 10 kms from sand dunes. The hotel provides pick up and drop facility to the sand dunes and is quite organised in doing so. The food is authentic Rajasthani food giving a true Rajasthani feel to the entire experience. The cultural program is also quite interesting with a fine setup. A complete value for money experience.

If I am ever back at Sam dunes, Winds Desert Camp is the place I am going to stay again. It is perfectly located 4 km short of the dunes parking lot with access to the dunes minutes away. The tents are nice, clean, airy and large. The hosts, Dheeraj Singh and Inder Singh are always around for anything you need. This place is highly recommendable.

Tip: Ask to be taken to the sunrise point behind the camps, next morning.

Staying in tents was a wonderful experience for me, I never expected this trip to be so satisfactory. The check in Tent was neat and clean.We were taken for a trip on camel cart to sand dunes for viewing the sun set. A good experience. Saw a flood of tourists from pan India in the Thar desert. Before the dinner there was a great performance by local male singers, musicians and female dancers. They entertained us non stop for two hours . Everyone enjoyed a lot.The dinner was excellent. all items were really very delicious especially the Rajasthani food.I am all praise for Mr. Inderjit and his team. I highly recommend this place.

Very neat and clean tents. They kept us busy with activities almost as soon as we reached. They took us for a camel ride in the evening. And then there was a very good cultural show in the night before dinner. Snacks flowed freely. The food was excellent. The people were wonderful. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

We stayed at this desert city hotel when we visited Rajasthan last February. The hotel provided us food with local flavour. Location is good. Rooms were extremely clean and luxurious with attached hygienic toilet facilities. Staff there really helpful.

The destination was very nice. The hotel was conveniently located. The appearance of the hotel was good. The staffs at the hotel were very nice. The housekeeping service was quickly provided. The housekeeping staffs kept the room and the rest room neat and clean. I liked the room which was given to me. Hot and cold water facility was provided by the hotel. There was no view from my room. The amenities in the room were in good condition. Only veg food was served in the hotel. The price for the food was reasonable. It was a relaxing trip with family. It was a recommendable hotel.

If you are looking for a wintry night to remember among the sand, rich Rajasthani folk culture and lip smacking local food - this is the place to be. Make no mistake, this place actually is in the middle of the desert, a few clicks from the Indian border with Pakistan. Hence, all you get is unadulterated air and the rich whiff of Rajasthani culture.

At first glance, the resort, occasionally visited by skittish deer, looks like a run-down set from an old Hollywood ghost town, replete with ropes, and broken horse carts and horns. Its once you enter that you get hit by the welcome wagon of tribal dancers and singers from neighbouring tribes, adorning you with flowers, vermilion and sindoor tilak and singing welcome songs in their tribal language. The front office, is nothing much to look at. Soon after the formalities are over, we are ushered to our rooms, uh tents which are independent twin sharing ones, complete with a sit-ins at the front, a bedroom in the middle and bath and wash at the end. The best thing about this place, NO TV. So its actually a vacation. If you're one of those whose idea of vacationing is to 'veg out' in front of the TV. All I could say is, you should've stayed home.

The bed is complete with comforters and blankets for those lovely wintry nights and a fan and air-conditioning for those summery nights and days. The bath and wash has all the compliments that one could expect from a star hotel room. Each independent tent has lamps out in the front and has sands and dunes for miles as your eyes stretch out at the back. of course you have the protection and fencing all across the perimeter.

The array of local songs and dance along with a few tricks is a treat to enjoy with like-minded people while you gorge on Indian snacks, nuts and a bourbon. gastronomical delights provided by the kitchen and dining (lodged in a separate tent) has the menu fixed, but if you ask for something local that you like, arrangements could be made to please you tummy senses.

The ideal thing to do is to come here with a vehicle and hold onto it until you're gone. However the resort does have a lone ride which does trips to and from the main city - Jaisalmer.

CAMELS - would have forgotten it, if it wasn't the adventure racing that ensued on a cart ride with the animals across pure sand dunes. if you're not a fan of the animal, would advise you not risk the independent rides on the animal, as depending on the time you spend on the ride, it could leave your back a bit sore.

All encompassing, the sun, the sand, the food, the camel ride and the magical, mystical aura of the place while you sit out on the middle concrete bonfire place nursing your drink, looking up to the starry night on a wintry weather, smoke coming out of your mouth and nose. Its priceless.

We made our 10 day Rajasthan trip during 1st week of December 2014. Jaisalmer was one of the key places that we had planned in our road trip.

During planning stage itself, we were so looking forward for Jaisalmer for 2 reasons are the drive from Bikaner to Jaisalmer. Stay in the desert.

Since we did all our bookings on our own, we found that the rates of Winds Desert camp was a little lesser than other camps like Chokhi Dhani, etc. Also, the response from one of the other desert camps was not good. Time was running out and we had to do the bookings. Although we didn't find excellent reviews on Winds, we decided to take a chance and try it out.

We were travelling with a toddler (4 years) & an infant (11 months). Hence we had to be extra cautious about the safety & some amenities like room heaters, etc.

And Boy! Were we totally impressed by this one.

Location:
First of all, the location seems to be not exactly in the desert but we realised that is how it is with all the desert camps. Sam Sand dunes is not far from here. Also, it is not located in an area where there are too many camps or shops. That way it is secluded and you have that effect of staying in an isolated place.

Amenities:
Each of our tents not only had all the amenities generally provided at such camps but also, they were very clean including the bathrooms.The camel safari was provided free of cost as it was included in the package.

Food:
Excellent! We really liked all the items that they served for lunch, starters at dinner, breakfast, tea, etc

Service:
And this is one reason I would want to go back to this place and recommend this place to everybody else. Extremely courteous owner, staff. The way we were welcomed, guided to the safaris, the smiling waiter who served food all were amazing! And when we returned quite late from the Safari, they kept the folk dancers on hold and started the dance programme only after we reached there and after giving us proper welcome with Tilak, Aarthi and all that.

The dance was excellent, with the dancers involving us also to dance with them.

Tip: We took the Jeep safari after dark as we wanted to do something in night. This was a good experience.

Overall it was a great experience staying at Winds desert camp :-)

Rooms are nice, well maintained and neat like a 3-4 star hotel.

Cons: Its a 15 minute drive from the dunes so not accessible if one would wish to take a after dinner or early morning stroll in the dunes. Food was very disappointing. But I paid 30% less than the resorts near the dunes so I was happy with the deal despite the cons.

Location is little bit away from Sam Dunes. Otherwise service, cleanliness etc are very good. They are very friendly. Cultural programmes are also good. Only food quality is left, which they can improve a bit. Otherwise it is excellent place to stay.
