Jodhpur attracts a large number of domestic and international tourists, so accommodations here should be booked much in advance. Booking a hotel can be a clichéd option because hotels with the same rooms and facilities can literally take you away from the quintessential Rajasthani town. Consequently, these days stays such as cottages, bungalows, and heritages are gaining prominence over resorts and hotels. Jodhpur has myriad rustic hut accommodations that can evoke the feeling of staying in an archetypal Indian village.
Set in the landscape of the Thar Desert, there are many benefits of staying in these thatched roof accommodations in Jodhpur. Rustic huts are located in remote areas such as Guda Bishnoiyan and Salawas, which are devoid of the cacophony of city noises and traffic. So, you can actually experience serenity. Secondly, rustic huts give you the feel of staying like a local and you definitely are more in tune with the cultural aspect of Rajasthan when you choose these rentals.
The exterior of these accommodations is accentuated by motifs of elephants, flowers, and eye-catching designs that highlight the artistic ability and craft of the state craftsmen. Some rustic huts also have adjoining balconies, which offer a generous view of the sandy landscape. The air-conditioned rooms either have a muted touch or incline towards the lavish side. The rooms in such lodgings are usually carpeted and furnished with comfortable beds, bedside tables, table lamps, wooden chairs and tables, dressers, and cupboards. The upholstery used includes patchwork, block prints, and other interesting designs. The bathrooms are equipped with modern sanitary ware and toiletries.
There are certain amenities that these huts provide:
A few of these accommodations in the Blue City feature swimming pools, where you can take a refreshing dip and protect yourself from the scorching sun. Some of these huts also have symmetrically placed beach recliners so that you can laze around and read a book in the peaceful environs.
Some rustic hut rentals also house in-house restaurants, where you can savour delectable traditional meals. The furniture in these restaurants, namely cane chairs and wooden tables, complements the rustic appeal of these earthen houses. These dining areas add to the comfort as you don’t have to rush to a restaurant in the main town if you are hungry at an odd hour.
These lodgings come with spacious courtyards and some also have well-tended gardens, which make up for an ideal area for strolls. These courtyards have comfy chairs and are the perfect place for bonfires.
The price of booking a room in a rustic hut in Jodhpur begins from approximately INR 2760 for a night.
