Have stayed here many times over the last few years and hope to stay many more. Such a relaxing place, away from everything, peaceful and friendly. Nowhere else quite like it. Rooms are comfortable, and a lovely outdoor pool in summer.

We travelled here in October as a family group of 4 adults and 2 small children. We chose Kibbutz Lotan because we wanted to stay on an actual kibbutz rather than in a separated holiday village run commercially by a kibbutz. We were also attracted by the location in the desert and the community/eco principles of the members. Before I... More

room was simple but clean, also there was a small kitchen. Breakfast was very qualitative and we liked it. We staid there one night. I think it is a good alternative to be there when you travel back from Petra to center Israel. The Eco garden was interesting and far better than wandering around in Eilat.

Having stayed in another kibbutz and visited others during this trip I was conditioned as to what to expect here but it was nevertheless a disappointment in terms of accommodation and food, both of which were very basic and below a reasonable standard in my view. Having no television wasn't such a disappointment but having no means of communication [internal... More

Contary to a couple of other review Lotan is a great base for Birders. Not only do the grounds and gardens provide quality birding on the doorstep but the Kibbutz is an ideal centre to visit hot spots such as Yotvata, K76 and Shizzafon. We stayed full baord for week in April. I thought it provided good value. Rooms were... More

As a group of birdwatchers we were looking for a peaceful, quiet accomodation. For a ten day stay we would have to pay 160 NIS per person incl breakfast. We then decided to stay in a Eilat hotel at a much lower rate. According to Shirihai's bird guide to Southern Israel this was mentioned as good birding place, so we... More

A major disappointment !The information provided on the internet by the kibbutz is nothing like reality.Mention of a bird reserve and abundant bird life is non existent.There is lots of rubbish around the place and silly models of various animals dotted around. It's awful ! The charge for accommodation was exhorbitant and I cannot recommend this kibbutz.. Don't go there... More

After reading the other reviews, it should be noted that if you are hoping for the Ritz, this is not the place for you. However, if you are adventurous, Lotan is an awesome get away. We arrived in the dark (maybe not so recommended) and walked into the 30th anniversary celebration for the Kibbutz. We were immediately welcomed by some... More

It truly disturbs me to criticize this so-called eco-tourism kibbutz that's situated in the Arava desert, just a half-hour's drive north of the beach areas of Eilat in Israel, but I must in the interest of the travelling public who want a dream vacation in a beautiful country. But a warning bell should be issued to those who have never... More

Lotan is a very small, yet very active kibbutz in the southern regions of the Arava. The ultra-friendly people who live here have a keen interest in desert ecology and it shows: a lot of the buildings have been made from mud, straw bales and adobe. The guesthouse is cute; the little houses come with all facilities, including a little... More
