A tribute to the city
The reference to “Helsinki” is a tribute to the city that gave Ali the opportunity to turn his childhood dream into a reality.
Ali was born in a small village outside of Jaisalmer. He arrived in Jaisalmer at the age of 7, to work for an uncle. Later he got the opportunity to move to Finland and work towards his aspirations.
This is a true rags-to-riches story of a desert boy who dreamed of one day building a hotel and through many years of hard work, a little bit of luck, and a whole lot of charm, his vision became a reality.
