Pitch your tent...

...on the exotic desert sands of Rajasthan. Soak in the local flavour sitting by the bonfire and listening to the folk songs or wake up to call of peacocks just outside your tents...
The concept of Manvar Desert Camp dates back to the 17th century when Mughal Emperor Jehangir known for his luxurious lifestyle used to set up royal tents with all the amenities during their hunting trips. Manvar Desert Camp has 30 tents arranged in a semi circle around a central 'durbar' hall. The central dining area from where stunning sunrises & sunsets can be seen.The interiors of the tents are extremely luxurious with custom designed block print motifs & large teak wood beds. Huge windows with pull up flaps allow the fresh desert breeze to come in and nets to keep insects out:-)


Live like royalty from the bygone era. Spend some amazing time under the starlit skies of Rajasthan in Manvar Desert Camp.

I bloghopped from somewhere, and I have been drooling at all your pictures. Your home is so beautiful! I wish you'd post pictures of the master bedroom also.

Really lovely--especially the dining tent and the last image with the teak beds and block print--looks like a wonderfully relaxing place to spend time.

I will be here on 23rd November 2008. I will post my critique when I return to Australia in early December. My wife and I are REALLY looking forward to this place. We're doing a 7 day tour of Rajasthan, staying in Taj hotels all the way.

Cheers,

Steve

I was pretty impressed with the location and the romantic feel of staying in tents:-)but I have yet to visit the place:-)

Do post your views, since it would be a great help to the readers to get first hand information about the place:-)

All the best with your trip.
