The best vintage point of the fabled golden fort
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 retreats 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.
