The Gulaal is arguably one of the best properties in Jaisalmer. Its proximity to the fort, architecture confirming to the ones you find inside the fort, the decor and warmth of hospitality extended by the staff makes is a must stay place. We stayed at the Luxury suite and while the luxury was true to its name, it did not burn a hole in our pocket. You enter the place in the evening and it is filled with mild aroma of dhoop giving you a feeling of an actual haveli. Our room was as spacious as one could imagine. A living room with window balcony, lovely bedroom, a huge bathroom. The best part was a huge separate terrace where you can enjoy a clear view of the fort while sipping your evening tea. The bedroom window gives you a clear shot of the fort and it looks surreal at night, something right out of story books. I can't even begin to describe the rooftop dining. You can enjoy your favorite meal with the view of the the fort which has a different aura around it at night. To top it all and the best feature of the place is, its staff. Warm, courteous and always willing to make your stay memorable. Without any doubt, the next time we go there, we are staying at the same place.

It a good 3 star property with huge rooms and great service. Calling it a luxury boutique is bit of a stretch. Again good views and huge rooms.

I looked at lot of hotels and booked Gulaal as the room sizes were big and the reviews were good. I feel all that is an understatement , our stay and trip to jaisalmer was exceptional. I give the credit to the the owner Mr. Virendra and Mr Chandan.We had a very warm welcome on rooftop with masala tea. The rooms are so spacious , bright and clean. He organised our heritage tour with a local guide Mr Lalit German Purohit(Lalu). He is a gem of a person with great knowledge. He took us to the fort and the town to see the most renowned Haveli’s.We requested to try local Rajasthani food and he organised everything and took us to the best spot in the fort with best views. He also took us for shopping. The staff at Gulaal were very respectful . The food is so delicious. The chef will make the effort to give you your choice of food. The next day we went to sand dunes which was organised by Mr Virendra. The driver ( Mr Naval kishor) is a very jovial and a safe driver. He told us few stories on the way. We went to Pal Rajah camp which was secluded and away from the crowded places , great food and an eye catching cultural show.The owners of Gulaal are the most wonderful people I have met till now. On our departure they also gave us a box of sweets . They made us feel so special. We thank the Gulaal team for making our holiday very memorable. If ever I go to Jaisalmer I will stay at Gulaal and will recommend to my family and friends.
