    Recommend this property for anyone looking for a distinctive no-frills stay near Makhtesh Ramon. Beautiful view overlooking the Makhtesh. Really gets you in the mood to explore the desert! Roz was very accommodating and stayed late waiting for our arrival. Our “hut” was clean, as was the communal bathroom and showers. Ample Israeli breakfast for a small extra charge.

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    If you are looking for a very unique place where you could reconnect with yourself and nature, this is the place to be! This is an eco-camp so facilites are not as fab a a five star hotel - but that's the point! I really love how the chalets were made - from natural materials! The staff were friendly and attentive and even waited for us to arrive (which was way after the check in time). We woke up to one of the best views we've ever seen! There are communal areas where you could take a shower, cook, and hang out! I must say, I really really enjoyed my time with this property and will definitely come back!

    Een unieke locatie, het is erg mooi in de nacht en met de zonsopgang. Alles wat je nodig had was binnen bereik. Erg gastvrij ontvangen, er heerst een hele gemoedelijke sfeer. WiFi is in de centrale hal te vinden, niet in de kamers zelf.

    Die Unterkunft liegt nur ca. 200 Meter von der Stadt entfernt, auf den Seiten ergibt sich aber der Eindruck, als liege sie sehr abseits. Auf Grund der Umstände ist das Ganze natürlich sehr hellhörig; ich musste unsere Nachbarn um 23:30 ermahnen, nicht laut zu singen, damit wir schlafen konnten. Ansonsten v.a. tagsüber eine ruhige, entspannte Athmosphäre, die Aussichten sind großartig und das Ganze hat tatsächlich einen öko/Hippie vibe.
