What's Good: overpriced..definitely not worth 10k a room !
Exotic Incredible India

This is luxury you don't realise while booking. From the accomodation to the lavish buffet spreads, cultural programmes to activity centres catering to all age groups, shopping haats to local trips to the beach, palace, hill tops, breathtaking sunrise and sunsets, the way salt tickles all your senses, this was a holiday that should last longer! We went from Delhi to Ahemdabad to Dhordo. Ahemdabad to dhordo drive was taxing. Kids get restless on long road trips. But the highway is gorgeous, and a pit-stop at Bhuj helped recharge.
One time experience!

We were three couples booked for 1 night 2 days stay on a full moon night in February. We had our own vehicle so opted out of pick up and drop facility hence cant comment on that. The check in was very smooth facilitated by young interns from hospitality. Our bags were tagged and sent to our cluster while we were directed to large reception area, there was a cool welcome drink. Our tents were already allocated, meal coupons handed over.Meal time and entertainment information was constantly announced. There are about 15/16 clusters of 35 AC tents. Other types of tents are also available,each with a designated dining area. Dining halls are large,air conditioning is adequate,plenty of buffet tables,there is live entertainment with vocal and instrumental Bollywood music. Breakfast,lunch,high tea and dinner are served efficiently. Only problem is the veg food served lacks character. Its typical run of the mill ,mass produced food . Considering that its a fairly expensive package,the food quality, presentation and variety leaves a lot to be desired. The tents are spacious,with pleasant ethnic decor.Hot water was adequate. On full moon night there are 2 safaris- one at 5.00 pm by bus and camel cart to the white rann for the sunset returning at 7.30 ,and again at 10.00 pm ,returning at midnight for the full moon. There is a stage where entertaining shows start at 9.00 pm. There are music bands,traditional and fusion garba- all very high quality. Funky motorcycle rickshaws are available gratis inside the tent city for local transport. Save a few hours for shopping.There are lots of shops within the city and just outside the gate selling beautiful handcrafted kutchi embroidery,artefacts,footwear. Prices are reasonable,bargains possible. If you happen to go to Kala Dungar shopping there is cheapest.
The Guest is the Boss here in the Tent-City !

It has been a month since we left the Rann Utsav Tent City cluster-E. Immediately after, we travelled Ahmedabad and Vadodara for a few more days. Where to start from? We should reminisce from our booking itself. We contacted A to Z Holidays, Ahmedabad, one of the agents for the Rann Utsav-Tent City 2019-2020. We could manage only one full moon-night on 10th Feb,2020, and booked a 2nights-3 days package. I must thank sri. PANKAJ SONI of A to Z Holidays for his guidance and help. We reached Bhuj on 8th Feb, two days earlier. Our check in at the Tent City Rann Utsav was on 10th Feb. During 8-10 Feb, we made our own arrangements to visit Bhuj Town, its wayside eateries, Mandvi Beach and Vijay Vilas Palce. That is another story. On 10th Feb morning we reported at the reception-tent Rann Utsav-Tent City 2019-2020, infront of Bhuj Railway station. It was a huge tent with sofas ,wash rooms, air coolers, pedestal fans, drink-water dispensers, and CCTV cameras. The men who manned the tent were from Lallooji and Sons, the famous event managinging & Tent-city company in Gujarat. Here I must mention about our host shri Gautam. A bubbly young man who like all other reception- staff, was taking care of each guest.These young boys were extra courteous and made all of us feel at home. The excitement started creeping in on every guest. The 1st bus started at 8:30am. About 35 passengers. Snacks, juice and water were provided. Our tour co-ordinator was sri. PARSAD (from Rajastan). After 45 mts the bus stopped near a way-side-teashop for tea . The ride then continued and we reached Dhordo TENT CITY by 11:30 am. We were recived by beautiful hostesses with Namaste and Sindoor Tilak. After the check-in formalities, my wife and I opted to go for a complimentary camel ride. It was lunch break from 12:30 to 2 pm . After the lunch, by 2:30 pm we were taken to our tent by Electric rickshaw. Mr. Surender (from Uttarakhand) was the E-cluster supervisor . He formally welcomed us and took us to our tent E16. It was very comfortable with modern basic amenities. We took part in some interactive Kutch tradional dances in the evening after the high tea, and thereafter witnessed the sunset in the White Rann. There we all had complimentary camel-cart-rides. For the more fun-filled persons, there were local costumes for hire to put on and take photos. Customised camel rides were offered for a price. After the sunset we all reched back to the tent, took hot water-bucket bath, finished an opulent dinner and got in to the bus at 10:30 night to watch the full moon reflecting on the salty-White Rann. It was ALOUKIK; not from this world! Next day, early morning we were taken to the ZERO point (under our BSF Jawans) to watch the Sunrise. After breakfast, we were taken to Gandhi nu Gaav, and some other local artisans' worshops. We returned to the Tent-City for lunch, and post-lunch moved to visit Kala Dungar and Magnetic Hill. On the third day morning, after a hevy breakfast and photo shoots, we boarded the buses to reach back Bhuj railways station. On the way, they stopped the bus for sightseeing at Suryanarayan temple, Kutch Museum, and Aina Mahal. Late evening the remaining guests were dropped off at Bhuj Railway station reception tent for return journey. Conclusions: Rann Utsav and Tent City are different. Anybody can get in and walk around and enjoy the cultural activities and the fairs in RANN UTSAV. It is a trade fair to show- case Kutchy craftsmanship in wood,woven,felted orcotton fabric. The Tent City is a temporary structure nearby the RANN UTSAV exclsively for its guests living. The accommodation and food is of the higher range and the price too. It was vegetarian food at its best (Jain and Gujarati cuisine). So many varied items. One thing which irritated me was: the cleaning of the utensils and plates were done by local labourers at the entrance to the female-wash rooms. That was disgusting. Tents, generally, almost lost its sheen. Year after year the weather took its toll. Our tent was bright. Who was responsible: Lallooji and Sons? Barring those, everything was next to perfection.
Nice Place visit once !!

Excellent folk show
by 1947vijayvasudeva on
The cultural program is excellent and it keeps you spell bound for nearly one hour . It is really worth it and much better then the white sand that you see in the rann of kutch festival The tent accommodation is very good worth a visit
Try to get clusters B if possible.

No need for AC tents. It will be damn cold in Dec-Feb nights. Do not waste money on AC tents. 2 nights/3 days package is ideal.
