India’s desert botanical resort Kaner Retreat is among most incredible places to stay by Belgium publication Kaner Retreat

Jaipur: Kaner Retreat, India’s first desert botanical resort near Jodhpur in Rajasthan, has been featured in the international coffee table book Desert Escapes as the world’s most incredible places to stay.

The coffee table book profiling 40 unique desert properties around the world is published internationally by Belgium-based Lannoo Publishers. Stunning imagery and evocative writing by Karen Gardiner, acclaimed travel writer, makes this elegant book a treasured collection.

“It is a great honour as only 2 properties from India made it to this elegant book and Kaner is one of them. The publishers found the concept of a resort around the narrative of desert botany unique,” said Sapna Bhatia, founder, Kaner Retreat.

Kaner, another name for the Oleander flower and commonly known as the Desert Rose, is an apt name for this boutique retreat brought to life by Sapna Bhatia, who grew up in the Thar Desert.

After many years in Delhi and London as an international journalist, Sapna decided it was time to share the magic of the desert with others while promoting sustainable local tourism in the process.

Thus, India's first desert botanical resort was born.

Kaner Retreat opened in 2022 and has been welcoming guests from all over the world.

With 10 villas in a 7 acre property Kaner Retreat provides an intimate introduction into the quiet brilliance of the Thar Desert.Kaner Retreat is located near Jodhpur in Dera village.
