I spent recently one night in this cosy ecolodge. Hosseim was the best of the hosts, provided with everything needed and went with me to the desert. He knows everything related to the area. I was given a very colourful & comfortable room and ate delicious food, from breakfast to dinner!
Thanks Hossein for the nice stay at your lodge. We’ve had a relaxing time and enjoyed the company and the food your mom made (moms are the best cooks!) Tipp: be sure to see the sunset / moonrise at the local dunes!
The location is very good. The desert is just outside the lodge. It's convenient to visit the desert whenever you want. What's more, there are farmland, fish pond and camel farm nearby. You can experience two different scenes: desert and village in one place. The lodge owner is friendly to share their family history with the guests. Foods are good and in homemade Iranian style. They will try to satisfy your request. The atmosphere is calm and peaceful. It's a good place to stay and experience traditional Iranian house.
We were wonderfully surprisedwhen we arrived there. A place of peace and joy in the middle of the desert. Our host prepared the birthday of my husband, gave him presents. I was so please I even forgot to really thank them. I hope they don't think I am rude. The organized a tour in the desert for us. The views in the morning are precious. And the food they cooked was such a pleasur. Thank you to the grand mother.
Barandaz is a place out of time and space. Our time there was my favorite part of our trip to Iran, and the lodge and its team was definitely one of the reasons why. The team is warm and discrete at the same time, they let you enjoy your intimacy while staying available for your needs and questions. We were three girls and a boy travelling and I was a bit worried about the transportation from Ispahan (~4 hours driving) but Majid the driver was great. Hossein patiently answered all my numerous questions before we arrived. Their food was very good, the room was clean and very cosy. I strongly recommand this place to anybody travelling to Mesr desert.
