Camp Thar Resorts is fast emerging as a favoured day out/tourist destination, a must see in Osian. Located at a convenient 60Kms from Jodhpur, it is a luxurious resort built amid the sand dunes of Osian. Built in the Rasjasthani style, the grandeur of the architecture of Rajasthan is evident, even as you enter the massive Entrance Gates with carvings and Jarokha’s in Rajsthani style. The Reception again is of carved stone work and furnished with Rasjathani Furniture.
Camp Thar has four grades of Tent rooms to cater for each pocket. The tent rooms themselves are luxury defined with exquisite furnishings and attached washrooms with latest fittings. Then there are also the cottage tents which is an experience in itself. A complete Rajasthani “Dhani” has been created without compromising anywhere on the luxury and comfort of the guest. There are also two Machans. Having a meal atop the Machans is an experience in itself.
The promoters of Camp Thar have provided quite a string of activities for an enjoyable stay or an evening out. For starters you can go for a Desert Safari enjoying the flora and fauna of the Thar Desert, for the less adventurous there are Camel Rides and ATV bikes within the campus of the Resort. After you have finished soaking up the thrill you can enjoy lip smacking traditional Rajasthani food, while you watch the famed Kalbelia dancers undulating to the music of the Langas, as they sing about the glorious past of the Land in their ballads. So no need to venture far from Jodhpur to unwind and enjoy the beauty of the Desert.
