I have been working for a hotel for over ten years and the favourite part of my job is meeting different guests from around the world and taking them out on safaris. I love seeing repeat guests come back to the hotel as it shows we offer a great service and hospitality. If you choose to volunteer at my place I will provide for you... A discount on our camel and jeep safaris Discount on the use of our swimming pool in the morning and evening when guests are out on tour Free bunk bed and staff food Discount on all food from the restaurant menu A free walking tour around Jaisalmer to experience the history and culture of the area A discount on food in the restaurants nearby Free pick up and drop off from the bus or train station once required notice is given. A discount on the use of my scooter so you can go to nearby areas such as Gadisar Lake and Bada Bagh a famous historical site in the area.
My name is Sunny and I have been working in a hotel for over ten years. We offer jeep and camel safaris to guests as were about fourty kilometres from the Thar dessert. Myself and the staff working in the hotel are from the local area so we are very familar with the culture and history here in Jaisalmer. The staff have also been working here for a long time so they are very friendly and professional to guests and volunteers. I have had many volunteers come to my hotel and they all came as strangers and left as friends so I hope you consider my hotel while you are in India as you won't be disappointed. We treat all our guests and volunteers with care and hospitality. We believe in setting high standards in the hotel and because of that we have a lot of repeat guests which reflects well on our business. The volunteer who chooses to come with us will have many opportunities to chat with guests so they can promote our tours as well as helping me out at reception with guests while doing the check ins and if the restaurant is busy the volunteer can take a few orders if needed. If a volunteer decides to come to our hotel they well be well looked after and cared for. The have the use of my scooter during the day if i'm not busy at a discounted price as well as use of the swimming pool at an agreed price and i will personally take them on a free walking tour so they can explore the area. My previous volunteers have all enjoyed their stay with us at the hotel and have memories to last a life time.
La realidad es que no fue nada parecido a como me lo imaginaba. No había huéspedes en el hotel, era la única hospedada y por lo tanto no hice nada. La situación fue bastante incómoda porque yo estaba quedándome ahí de prestada sin hacer nada, me ofrecí a hacer algo pero el dueño me dijo que no hacía falta. No me dieron la comida como decía en worldpackers y no quise reclamarla porque me pareció que no daba. El dueño se mostró súper servicial pero no entiendo porque me aceptó si no tenía trabajo para hacer como voluntaria, no sé si pensaba que la experiencia era tipo coachsurfing o que.

Buena experiencia en Jaisalmer!
Conocí a Dalma y Nelson, de Argentina. Unos cracks!
El tour por el desierto y la noche estuvo genial.
Las comidas son escasas y algo repetitivas.
Por lo demás, recomendable. El staff es bueno!
