Highs + Lows

  • Although I am not the biggest fan of buffets, it is the hotel’s favored choice of food service for breakfast, lunch and dinner and I have to say, it was absolutely awesome.

  • Our room had its own private pool that was ideal for an after hours dip.

  • It seems that the famous desert animal, the Ibex, is a fan of the hotel also. You can find the harmless and amazing animals roaming all over the property.

  • The Ramon Crater.

  • The hotel’s design was extremely unique and the materials, colors, and shapes used made it seem like it was a natural part of the desert.

  • The closest town, Mitzpe Ramon, is not very exciting.
