Shaam E Sarhad Village Resort

After reaching Dhordo we had decided to skip the tents at Rann Utsav and instead planned on staying at Shaam-e-Sarhad Resort in Hodka village fully managed by the village people. We checked in our Bhunga only to experience the wooden roof contrasted pretty well with the colourful bathroom door, the looking mirror outlined with mud work, the beautiful windows and exquisite décor perfectly blending with the theme of the resort. The open lunch area covered on to the top with colourful kites was such a beautiful site then we forgot to take the bite and rather were lost into the beauty of it. The lunch served at the resort was no less than ghar ka khana with roti, dak, moong, chutney and salads. Eat light, pack light and travel light to experience the most ;)

There are amazing resorts in Bhuj, Great Rann of Kutch and Mandvi. Near Great Rann of Kutch you can stay at Hodka village(has few resorts and it is about 18 kms from GRK), Dhordo village(its the beginning of GRK and has tents are on the white desert). We would suggest that you stay in these village resorts rather than in Bhuj, only then you will get feel of Rann(we stayed in Shaam-e-sarhad, amazing resort with great service and food).
