There aren't many kibbutzim in Israel that still embrace, or truly attempt to embrace, the communal spirit, but Ketura still does. At the same time, this is a forward-thinking kibbutz: while they still grow dates, they also have a massive solar energy array (and are building a new larger one) and a red algae farm where their dairy cows used...

Our group of 50 stayed for two nights in this very friendly kibbutz recently. The accommodation was comfortable and very clean, the staff were exceptionally friendly and they could not do enough to make our stay pleasant. The educational program they arranged was interesting and varied. A special place where we were welcomed warmly. Would strongly recommend a stay of... More

We stayed at Keturah for 3 nights, using that location as a base for exploring the Negev and Eilat. The accomodations were spacious. There were 2 large rooms & 2 full bathrooms for the 3 of us, as well as a kitchen. They even welcomed us with some fruit in the refrigerator along with milk and cold cereal. Breakfast was... More

We stayed here thinking it would be a good alternative to the touristy Eilat. But it's not a convenient base camp if you plan to be doing things in Eilat. The staff was very friendly by phone when making the reservation and left some nice things for us in the room. On the other hand, they were not accommodating when... More

I am staying their once a week for the last 6 months. It is a nice and clean place. Pleasant staff and decent breakfast. I would recommend it to whomever wants a budget stay in the the ARAVA region. They have double rooms, dual room suit and 4 rooms suits and all of them are very good.

This was our second stay at Ketura. We booked ahead for three nights. Our first trip we had been told reservations were not necessary and were lucky to get lodging for just one night. We toured the dairy farm, the date farm, the algae farm, the solar farm, all with lengthy explanations as to their origin, development significance. We learned... More

My group of 18 people from Tel Aviv stayed overnight at Kibbutz Ketura's B&B and next time we'll plan a longer visit! I was here with a group 6 years ago and we were again not disappointed by our host, who took us on a walking tour as soon as we got unpacked in our very clean rooms. After a... More

My husband and I were birding in Israel and needed somewhere to stay in this area - the options were limited so we decided to stay here and overall we found it to be fine. The receptionist was very friendly and the rooms very basic but clean. The dining experience was interesting - a bit like being back in school,... More

Our family stayed at Keren Kolot 3 times. Each time was very pleasent and enjoyable. The rooms are simple but very nice and clean. The kitchen is well equiped with cooking utensiles. There's a special area for barbeque. Breakfast is served at the kibbutz dining room, and includes cereal, salad, bread and spreads, and sometimes pancakes. The staff at Kren... More
