Dear Woldpackers Unforgettable experience My name is Hemant, and together with my four uncles I run a hotel in beautiful Jaisalmer, in the desert of Rajasthan. The hotel is located near the historical fort on a quiet street in the neighborhood We are looking for people who want to help us all year round. - with our administrative work (like booking rooms, communicating with our guests etc.), - with our beautiful roof-top restaurant (service, explaining the dishes, clean-up, and, if possible, helping with our continental dishes), - with general maintenance and room-cleaning, - and last but not least with educating our own children (mostly teaching them English and maybe some other languages). Of course you can choose between the different jobs, according to your interests. We would like your help for 1 to 5 hours per day, for a minimum of 2 weeks, and a maximum of 6 months if you really enjoy being here. :-) In return, we would provide you with a hotel room, food and free WIFI. We offer free pick up on arrival with our jeep, just please let us know your arrival time before you start your journey to Jaisalmer. We would also offer the option of a discounted Camel Safari, recommended by many travel books as the best in town! We like to think that we have the best roof terrace in Jaisalmer. Our hotel is located in full view of Jaisalmer's Fort, close to the market bazaars and all major tourist destinations are within walking distance. Most importantly, you will get a glimpse of Jaisalmeri life and you will interact not only with our international guests, but also with the relaxed members of a family-business. In the process you will make friends for life and learn a little Hindi and some Rajasthani cuisine here and there :-)
We are a group of friendly young men who are relaxed, laid-back and very easy to interact with. We are on Couchsurfing and other similar websites and have hosted countless people from all around the world with many fond memories.
I loved Jaisalmer, thanks to the people at Shahi Palace! Apart from the yummy food, they create the best desert safari experience and boast a great view of the fort from their 'always-eventful' rooftop.
They own four hotels. so you never run out of things to do and places to be. All the four brothers are different and interesting at the same time, oh, the stories they'd tell you! Hemant, Jora's (eldest brother) son is very resourceful and can help you figure out pretty much everything.
I got to make friends with the ladies and kids of the house too, they have a lovely joint family!
