I was staying at the place along with 20 families celebrating a quiet 50s. all was very well organized + Owner (Ziv) and his staff were very helpful/ knowledgeable/ experienced in every aspect/domain The staying and celebration was exactly and even more than I expected. we occupied the big tent and lots of various rooms. the feedback from my friends took part in my celebration report the same feeling. highly highly recommended
Looking back on a year, the trips abroad are always the highlights. But the few days we spent during Christmas at Desert Shade shine above the rest of our travels in 2018. Looking for luxury? Don't visit. Looking for breathtaking nature, wholeheartedness, hospitality, the very best dates imaginable, atmosphere, a wide sky full of twinkling stars, good company? Look no longer. Many thanks to Desert Shade for such an unforgettable experience!
I liked it. The hosts were very kind to me. Clearly explained how everything works.
The cabin I had was basic but for me good enough. Don't expect a fancy room.
Breakfast was very nice.
The location was nice, it is easy to walk down to the crater.
Definitely, I place where I would go again.
Superb, beautiful, precise.
Quiet, sweet, family friendly, travels style, farmy like place. Super special location, 200 meters from the edge of Ramon Crater, one of the best views you can find to sit, relax and enjoy the Marvels and magnificence of the unique desert.
The place is very friendly and feel like almost a community farm. There are mostly travelers here which is nice to talk to and exchange experiences from the various track and possible hikes.
There are common showers (with hot water), restrooms (clean), kitchen (big, but not equipped) and main building (a shared Bedouin salon with lots of cuzy sittings and hot tea) which are open 24 hours.
The stuff is extra nice and friendly and they help with what ever needed.
They sell low quality wood for campfire for 50 NIS which is a bam (and you need 2 of them in order for 3-4 hours of fire), but it does the work.
You must order in advance, the place was full in late December.
