Michelle was our tour guide on the kibbutz. She extended the time frame given to her, disrespected our staff and yelled at them. She disrespected our kids time and doesn’t stop talking. She has ruined our time at ketura and needs to stop running tours.

So welcoming. Clear and comfortable unit with AMAZING views of the Arava mountains. Our family of 4 had a fantastic stay and simply unwound. We recommend taking up the kibbutz tour and learn about the sustainability projects undertaken by the members.

Great getaway for a long weekend. The rooms are nice, and the pool delightful. Close to hiking and not too far from Eilat if you want to explore. Given the Covid situation breakfast was brought to our room every morning, which we could eat on the patio.

Our stay at Kibbutz Ketura has been wonderful. The place is beautifully located in the Negev Desert, the people are amazingly friendly and the free tour gives a good insight in kibbutz life and how the kibbutz is organized. We stayed one night, had dinner in the central dining hall with the kibbutz people from whom we learned what kibbutz life means to them. When we arrived, there were issues with the water system, but the compensating coffee and tea tasted well and some time later, everything was back to normal. The room was large and clean, the welcome-cookies were a nice treat after the long journey, and the view from the backyard on the desert and the mountains was amazing. Book ahead, because rooms tend to fill up quickly!

Kibbutz Ketura is amazing! We were given a great tour around the place and got to learn so much about this little slice of paradise in the desert. We were given delicious dates that were freshly grown and were treated to a yummy lunch in the dining hall. Everyone was so friendly, welcoming and just the best. We learnt so much about the ideology and the history of the place. A great day! Thanks for having us :)
