About Hotel Suraj Vilas

Hotel Suraj is the only residential Haveli in Jaisalmer Fort. The Hotel is run by the Vyas family who take pride in their almost 500-year occupation of the house: 17 generations in all since 1526.
The Hotel's rooms display some of the best examples of Murghal stonework, with gorgeous archways and balconies and ancient wooden ceilings.The house is situated in the south east corner of the Fort, very close to the world famous Jain Temples, and there are magnificent views from its windows.
The rooms are arranged around the courtyard of the Haveli and each has its own bathroom. The decoration, with antique objects from the long history of the Fort, together with crisp linen sheets, fresh towels and luxuries for the bathroom provide an atmosphere of richness tempered with modern amenities. All the rooms have windows or balconies, looking out on the Fort and the desert beyond.
One of Hotel Suraj’s main attractions is that it occupies the second highest position in the Fort (after the Maharaja’s Palace); thus the roof provides magnificent views of the Jain Temple, Old City, Fort Houses, Lake and many other historic points of the Town. Another plus point of the roof is that one can watch the Sunset from the restaurant, cool drink in hand.
Our Restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and for tea, coffee, cool drinks and snacks in-between times. Meals can be taken in the restaurant , in the courtyard or in your own room.
Other Facilities include laundry service, car rental for all India (A.C. and Non A.C.), motorbikes and bicycles on per-day rental basis, train/bus/air reservations, newspapers and money exchange. We also have a Doctor on call, There is a shop adjoining the Hotel where Internet, Fax, ISD and CD burning from digital cameras can be arranged.
Camel/Jeep Safaris into the desert are available, lasting from 4 hours to a maximum of 21 days. Participants are provided with all meals and sleep in tents or under the stars. We are happy to store your luggage without charge while you are away.

We look forward to welcoming you soon at the Hotel Suraj Haveli, Jaisalmer!
