I stayed at Lotan this past weekend to visit friends and enjoy the surroundings. I have stayed on Lotan before and every time I come back, there is something new. On this trip, I was able to play 9 holes of disc golf... in the Arava!! It is absolutely beautiful down here; a very special place. I highly suggest you... More

I stayed at Kibbutz Lotan twice during the past month. Living in a straw bale house in Upstate New York, I was excited to hear about all the wonderful things that are going on at Kibbutz Lotan. To begin with the site is just breathtaking. The desert vistas are amazing....the mountains which change color during the day and at sunset... More

The program was very complete in so many areas concerning Ecology,.i loved it because it was theory but lots of practice, gardening, building, recycling, lots of hands out and hands on .the teachers knew their stuff, very professional and at the same time...

Kibbutz Lotan is a must visit if your in the South of Israel. It is unlike any other place on Earth. Incredible desert landscapes, beautiful vistas, eco-tourism, sand dunes, birdwatching, strawbale and mud geodesic domes, watsu aquatic therapy(water massage), holistic treatments, organic gardens, and many nature hikes all wrapped into a quiet soothing community. The pool is gorgeous, and one... More

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
