We stayed at Sanjay Villas for 10 days around Christmas time. The hotel is located outside of the Jaisalmer city walls, in a quiet neighborhood about a 20 minute walk from the fort. We loved the location because it was far enough from the chaos of the center of town, yet accessible to all the major sights. In fact, it is two streets down from a beautiful Brahmin temple and sunset point.
The hotel was spotless. In fact, the young boy that worked at the hotel as a cleaner was constantly either mopping the floors or sweeping it. The hotel has a lovely rooftop restaurant tended to by a pair of brothers, Balee Khan, who works as a server amongst other roles, and his brother Anwar Khan who, despite being young, is a fantastic cook. Stick to Indian classics when ordering.
Both Balee and Anwar, the managers Jamser and KK and the cleaning boy, whose name I can't remember, made our stay incredibly memorable. All around Jaisalmer, hotels have the slogan "Come as a tourist, leave as a friend" written on all their cards. At Sanjay Villas, the warm staff really makes this happen.
Sanjay Villas also organizes a memorable camel safari. They have high-end and non-touristic camel safaris available. We opted for the non-touristic safari and were treated to solitude in the desert!!!!! Our friendly guides, Jackie and Gaji took good care of us, cooked really good food and took us to areas in the desert where there wasn't a single person besides us.
In the end, when we left Jaisalmer, we were sad to say goodbye to the good friends we had made.
