Welcome To Dera Dune

An Oasis of Calm, in the Wilderness of The Great Indian Thar

Set amidst an ocean of dunes, atop a 100 ft high sand dune in the wilderness of the Thar Desert – The Clement Dune Retreat is one of its kind.

Its 360 degree vista unfolds a canvas of night skies that entice an astronomer’s delight. The dawn and the dusk being the quintessential poet’s perfect muse, all seemingly to have been in conspiracy with nature, to bring you to this land back of beyond. Embedded in times bygone, this rustic and seemingly barren land awaits the discerning traveller to explore its festivals, tribal heritage, folklore, art, craft, weaves and rituals. And an experience which beckons you to see the impact every traveler has on the livelihoods of the people that make this land so rich, is an experience unparalleled.

A perfect symphony for the heart and soul, the retreat is surrounded by wonders of both God and Humankind. Whether it’s clouds of migratory cranes from the steppes of Mongolia, or the handicraft that dates back to the Bronze ages, here lies a vastness for all life to thrive, in this far removed corner of the planet; So far, yet so home. This remote wonderland is in no race against the sands of time, but the hidden treasures in its culture may be. The Dune Retreat beckons you to unravel them all, including yourself.

Dera Dune has been featured in the New York Times Travel publication and was nominated for the World Saver Award by Conde Nast Traveller magazine.
