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!

It was my first Worldpackers experience. When I reached the host Mr. Devilal arrange a car to pick up me from station. He introduced me with locals and gave info about local sightseeing. He is a friendly person. I stayed here in off season so they have less work to do, although he and his staff are very kind, it feels like home. Here I painted some tables and chairs at their another hotel Heera Court (they have total four hotels in Jaisalmer).
We usually talks at nights with fellow tourist and local peoples on their rooftop. I stayed there for 16 days and it was great days of my life. Thanku

Jaisalmer is an amazing city; apart from the heat, everything is good. I stayed there for 15 days; because of rich history, I got so much to explore. Since it was my first solo trip, I was a bit nervous regarding place, hosts and people. But the owners and the staff at Hotel Shahi Palace made me very comfortable and I left the place with mixed feelings.
The owners offered me the complete flexibility to work and helped me whenever needed. Since they've 4 hotels in Jaisalmer itself, you have a variety of tasks to work. The most amazing experience was the Desert Safari and sleeping at terrace.
