I stayed here for one night with my 8th grade pupils. It's very clean, well looked after, well organised and beautifully located. The class slept in a giant tent while the staff had excellent ensuite rooms. Strongly recommend this place for families with its animal corner, lovely clean grounds and well mapped walks, graded by difficulty of route.

Great experience in this oasis near the Dead Sea. learned drumming, bellydancing and information about the beduin way of life. Room was spacious and comfortable and food very good. May be too busy during the season though as they have the capacity to host large amounts of schools/tourists comping with buses.

I wanted a Bedouin experience! I felt misrepresented! I then understood that it was great for huge events and school encounters and big bus tours who arrive for a meal and leave. I do not think it works for couples on a smaller scale. The staff were friendly and helpful and when I asked for a Bedouin experience she did...

We stayed one night with our kids - ages 4 and 1.5 - and it was perfect. They loved the goats, the hammocks, and the bunkbed in the room. The food was wonderful. Everything was very laid back. The fire pit at night, the stargazing, the camel rides. It made traveling with kids a pleasure. By accident we left my...

Its stunning, well run, unique and well placed for Dead Sea and Masada. Accommodation varies from huge tents to family tents, to chalets. We have 2...

Second time in Israel for my husband & me & first time for friends. Wanted to have them ride camels. This was different than our last camel place. This was more authentic, camel ride so much longer, dinner & breakfast good & plentiful, place really impressive. Loved meeting Mohammed(I think that was his name) & hearing about the Bedouin culture....

This spacious oasis in the Judean desert, between the city of Arad and Massada can accommodate hundreds of people, with easy access by car, but feels private and secluded. The atmosphere is calm and quiet. Families and groups have common spaces to gather together. The place is decorated creatively by the local Bedouines, who also service the place very efficiently...

My husband had doubts when I told him I'd booked camel rides and dinner at a Bedouin village. As we were driving the desolate road there (the same road that approaches the back side of Masada) he kept asking if the place was one camel, one donkey and an old Bedouin couple. Far from it! Charming, well planned amenities accompanied...
