We were confused initially but Mr. Chandra cleared all our doubts and make strong commitment regarding our stay. Shiv Tara resort is so unique and so quite compare to other resorts. Tarun and Hinglaj shows the best hospitality, highly recommended.

My friend and i cam here with the expectations of having a good time, instead we had the best expressions of our trip!! An amazing camel ride in the sand dunes with an incredible sunset followed up with warm welcome, live local music and dancing with others from our camp. A wonderful time that wont forget anytime soon.

Well my friend, we have something in the desert and that is called services and affordability of those services. I have been to many camps but quality and hygiene is very hard to find. But here you got to try... It's good out here.. be sure to bring your hookah... Night is full of stars and with bong and fire you can feel it too... Tag me there in your story... And let other enjoy night in the desert with stars and bongs...🐙🐙🐙 Love.. White Beard...

We had a truly wonderful experience at Shiv Tara Desert Camp, every part of our stay was special. The cultural show performers were outstanding much better than others we had come across, the food was also some of the best we have had during our stay. Finally the service was brilliant every request was greeted with smile and willingly carried out.

I am a tour operator and i planned to visit Jaisalmer and i booked shiv tara desert camp. As i used to make rajasthan trips for my traveler and i heard a lot about this place. And shiv tara place was up to the mark according to my expectations and the best part of the package is the cultural and folk program and the camel safari too. It is a completely new experience of staying in a tent and great hospitality.

Very good place to stay, Service is the best. Food also of good quality. I went there by looking at review and now once i visited this place i am giving 5 star. Specially the owner there Mr. Tarun, he is so helpful and polite he alone can bring tourist to this place with his nature. Very helpful and good person. I will definitely visit again.

    Shiv Tara Desert Camp closes from May till Aug because of the extreme sun, around 50 degrees Celcius and risk of sun stroke in the middle of the dunes … We are opened from September until April!!! We don’t recommend heading inside the desert in summer. Most of the luxury camps are closed because we cannot guarantee a comfortable and safe stay, specially with kids or old people. In June, we recommend only stepping into the the desert once the sun is going down.
