Beautiful and charming atmosphere....artsy tea room where breakfast is served...had a very informative and incredibly interesting tour with Ariel - offered free with your overnight stay. See the wonders that a small number of...

I arrived just after the heaviest storms they've had in years - over a year's usual (desert) rainfall in a day. Another indication of changing climate, perhaps? But here on Lotan, an 'Eco-kibbutz', they are trying to do something about it. So you'll be comfortable, but don't expect excessive luxury. I stayed in one of their adobe rooms, which was...

This is a nice place to stay at! I've been here twice with my family. Rooms are nice, comfortable & clean. Breakfast at the tea house is great! The eco-tour at the kibbutz is interesting - both grow ups & kids enjoy it.

So I stayed for almost two months in the Bustan, self sustainable neighborhood on the Kibbutz as part of a Green Apprenticeship program. Learning and living so many life changing sustainable living principles and concepts. From making your own bio gas for cooking, to maintaining and using the compost toilets. Not to mention the kick of putting beans, a cake...

We have been in Kibbutz Lotan for one week and felt very comfortable in the aesthetic equipped room. The Kibbutz reflects the fantasy and the innovation of the members. There are many possibilities to keep yourself busy or to calm down off the heat in the swimming pool. Our son has worked there as a volunteer for half a year...

We made the ad hoc decision to visit Kibbutz Lotan on our trip through Israel and it really paid off. You should stay at least two nights for example in the amazing eco dorms and take the opportunity to talk with nice and open people hangin' around you. Kibbutz Lotan seems to be a pioneer and kind of a learning...

My family and I enjoyed learning about Kibbutz Lotan's ecologically oriented ways to minimize their impact. We received a nice tour of the kibbutz. Food is very good and they offer swimming which is plus for kids and adults tryingto stay cool in the desert. My biggest suggestion would be to the staff who coordinate the visit. We didn't get...

We were so happy to stay at this tiny kibbutz "desert oasis". We met Mike, one of the founders who generously shared with us his-tory of how Lotan came to be. Fascinating! Everyone we met was kind, friendly and went out of their way to help us and show us the ins and outs of sustainable living. Even our 20...
