Hotel Shahi Palace

The Shahi Palace Hotel is a beautiful palace in Jaisalmer with 16 rooms that are all uniquely decorated in traditional Haveli style.

We have a fixed staff, but always can use an extra helping hand. We can use your creativity and talents for different purposes. Work varies from helping with reception work, cooking or a bit cleaning. In exchange we offer a free stay and 3 delicious Indian dishes a day.

You will have good time to enjoy the amazing golden city, the fort or a camel safari when you have free time. If you want, you can learn Hindi , see the way of living in this part of the world and see our culture. We love to teach you cooking some dishes, showing our home and making a small party.

Can you write or speak English? We would love to welcome you!

Namaste, My name is Devilal, I own different hotels in Jaisalmer and run camel and jeep safari's with local people in Thar desert . Some hotels are new and need some final touches in the interior and design. I would love to have some help with promoting these hotels and can use someone who can make websites. Staying with us means we treat you like our family, welcome to Rajastan!

My stay at Shahi Palace was great! All of the staff here are very kind and made me feel welcomed immediately. The hotel itself is beautiful, the rooms have lots of character and the rooftop is a great place to relax and enjoy the stunning view of the fort. Devilal was an accommodating host who helped me see all of the sights in Jaisalmer, took care of me when I got sick, and made my experience in India feel authentic. The tasks I did were simple and enjoyable, the trade off was definitely worth it. I got to try new foods, stay in a beautiful place and meet many new people!

Since the moment I set foot in Jaisalmer, the warmth and hospitality of the people enveloped me, making me feel cherished and embraced. Attending the wedding of my host's niece was a heartwarming experience, weaving me intricately into the fabric of their family. Every individual extended their arms to me, embracing me as one of their own. Through my two weeks of volunteering, I not only forged meaningful connections but also gleaned invaluable insights and knowledge. My gratitude towards Devi Ji knows no bounds for granting me this unforgettable journey in the city of golden hearts.

Where to start...
From the minute we arrived, we were welcomed into the family.
Everyone was beyond lovely.
The food was amazing, the tasks were short and super simple leaving me plenty of time to go out and explore the beautiful town.
The hotel was beautiful with stunning views on the rooftop and the camel safari tour is out of this world <3

An absolutely great opportunity to see a beautiful part of India, and meet some great people. I applied here to start my trip into India in a smaller town to get oriented, and Jaisalmer turned out to be beautiful (though often difficult for me), Devilal and the rest of the staff were SO accommodating, and gave me a bunch of memorable experiences, as well as useful help for my future travel. One unusual thing was that there wasn't any work to do, so I felt almost guilty about the immense hospitality, and had more free time than expected. Overall, highly recommend

La experiencia fue buena, tuve muco tiempo para mí ya que era temporada baja y no habia muchas tareas que hacer. El personal del hotel son muy amables. La comida y es lugar son increíbles. Conoci a la familia de Devilal y tanto el como su familia me hicieron sentir como en casa.
Recomiendo esta experiencia, pero mejor en la temporada de menos calor!
