"Great, one time recommended, very different and unique experience"

6.1/7
Posted 3 months ago

Nice place specially for desert excursion. Must do one time. Night folk local dance is one of a kind. Though 2nd night kicks in with boredom with repeat of same. Little far from city. Great hospitality with little means around. Very different and special experience. Considering value for money hard to think of coming again.

The people here make your stay even better. Always helpful and courteous. All facilities available at all times and close to all the good tourist spots. These people made Jaisalmer getaway really special for me. Hotel folks will also help you plan your day and the cultural folk night is something you won't forget.

It is good to be there, we were enjoyed a lot. Staff is very kind and supportive. Food was served hot, and they know what is the meaning of good service. Management is flexible, tents are very clean with heater and AC. I recommends winds as it gives a complete peace of mind.

"Affordable close-to-culture experience with luscious amenities"

6.6/7
Posted 1 year ago

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.

"An amazing & an extraordinary stay "

6.2/7
Posted 1 year ago

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 :-)

"Excellent services and amazing stay "

7.0/7
Posted 5 months ago

Stay at Winds Desert Camp was amazing from every point of view. Even though we were the only guest on that day (though my first expression was shocking) but they did really wonderful job to give every bit of comfort to their guest. Service was excellent, same goes for the desert safari and camel ride. We enjoyed a lot being in sand dunes and capturing our memory of sunset in a desert. Then comes the famous Rajasthani cultural program. Again no word can express my feeling properly. We ended our eventful day with a candlelight dinner. I fully encourage everyone to be a guest of this camp if you want to really enjoy your night in desert.

"Wonderful Stay with entertaining experience"

6.9/7
Posted 2 years ago

We visited to experience the desert sand dunes. Staff at camp was very courteous and helpful. They arranged for pick up from and drop back to Jaisalmer with all sightseeing en route. Tents were clean and decent with AC and attached bath. Trip to Dunes at sun set was worth the visit. They arranged for camel cart for elderly members in family with camel ride for others. Evening folk dances were quite entertaining. Dinner and breakfast were provided in the restaurant and lunch on request. They can arrange for special sun rise visit and Desert Safari for more adventurous travellers. Overall experience was excellent.
