Located between Jodhpur and Jaisalmer, well off the tourist trail in the remote Thar Desert; Dera Dune Retreat, Jamba adds a point of difference to a tour of Western Rajasthan. Named for the nearby village of Jamba, Dera Dune Retreat has 18 stylishly appointed cottages decorated in royal Rajasthan style, a swimming pool to beat the desert heat and sweeping views of the desert. One amongst just a few luxury resorts in the world situated on top of a nearly 100 foot high sand dune, Dera Dune Retreat, Jamba is approachable by 4WD vehicles only.
The village Jamba was the birth place of the founding saint of the Bishnois - Jambeshwar or Jambaji. The main temple dedicated to Jambaji is located 4 kms from the retreat and is famous for the two festivals that take place here in September/October and March/April. The desert around Jamba is home to nomadic tribes with a rich and colourful lifestyle. The unique Bishnoi people are true eco warriors of the region. They are known conservationists for whom the preservation of animal life and vegetation is a religion and has been from the early 15th century. There is an opportunity to join in the annual Bishnoi festival at their nearby temple dedicated to their Guru Jambheshwar.
Guests will also have the opportunity to visit local craftsmen and artisans in their own homes. Every evening Mother Nature displays her artists palette of pastels and burnt orange in a gorgeous display before the bonfire is lit and guests are entertained with traditional Rajasthan music.
