Jaisalmer in Rajasthan is a desert city nestled in the foothills of Trikuta and it is famous for its imposing forts, exquisite palaces and havelis that showcase Jaisalmer’s distinguished ‘jali’ work (stone lattice work), truly depicting the aesthetic sense of the medieval Rajput warriors. One of the most favored tourist destinations in Rajasthan, the city is frequented by domestic travelers as well as by foreign tourists. Jaisalmer, in the heart of the Thar Desert was founded in the 12th century by Maharaval Jaisal. Hence the fort- city came to be known as Jaisalmer.
Also famous for cobbled streets, dotted with havelis, forts and temples; every house in the city is exquisitely carved, most of them dating back to at least 500 years. No wonder Jaisalmer has been hailed as a Museum City!
It is in this beautiful city of Jaisalmer that the Gorbandh Palace is ideally located. The very name of this Royal Retreat is inspired by the desert and its associated stories. Gorbandh is a harness which the desert women decorate for their husband's camel with any material they can find such as cowry shells, beads, sequins, coloured threads and even buttons. It is a matter of pride for women to deck their husband's camels out in the most splendid way possible as a mark of respect for this majestic working beast and for the men who rely on their strength and aptitude in the undulating sands of the desert.
In this luxurious Royal Retreat you can enjoy all modern-day amenities in an authentic Rajasthani ambience. The retreat’s lush greenery, fountains, state of the art spa and the blue waters of its swimming pool create a tranquil haven from the heat and dust of the desert city. Also nearby are the famous Sam sand dunes, where you can party or stay overnight.
