On December fifteenth, 2021, I joined the MRS Hospitality Group at Suryagarh Jaisalmer as a Visitor Experiences Supervisor. I work right here now! I’ve been visiting their inns ( together with Narendra Bhawan Bikaner and Mary Budden Property Binsar ), since 2017, as a visitor. NOW I WORK HERE!
Disclaimer : whereas I had introduced it on my Instagram and even modified by bio to incorporate my designation and so forth., I used to be not completely certain if I might have the ability to deal with the tempo of the hospitality business. Now, three and a half months later, I feel I did, certainly, cope.
That is my first weblog put up about Suryagarh as an worker!
I take care of the Visitor Experiences Program and the VIP Program on the resort. As a part of my duties, I take visitors round for the resort’s Experiences and Explorations. One in all which is the Thar Path. Typically, relying on the visitors’ necessities, we tailor our experiences.
This Thar Path was halved and a Sundowner at an Oasis was included. Temperatures at Jaisalmer have already been hovering unseasonally since mid-March. We didn’t need our visitors to bear the brunt of the warmth for too lengthy, therefore the chilled out Sundowner.
Chandra ji, who’s probably the most skilled individual on the resort in terms of our Trails, launched us to the historical past of the land and its individuals, in addition to a number of the summer season natural world.
