Our 2 night stay was enjoyable and rewarding, as it gave us the opportunity to go back in history and experience an Israeli institution that is becoming extinct. If you just look for a B&B in the Arava desert, Ktura’s guest rooms don’t stand out compared to other options in the area. However, if you are looking to live, eat,...

Excellent service, very welcoming kibbutz. We got the feeling that these people are nice by heart, not just for us but for all the people around them. Two people from our group were sick and cancelled their reservation only one day before we arrived, and Keren Kolot did not charge them.

A kibbutz guest house with a courtyard arrangement of suites. Each has a kitchenette, sitting area and shower room. Lovely, open porch area in the back viewing the desert mountains. Friendly receptionists and reception room with coffee and nosh available. Meals can be taken in the kibbutz dining hall - one of the last vestiges of the original socialist movement....

Perfect to get to know what is a Kibutz. everything is plain and simple. swimming pool is nice. we had a day at Eilat, A day at the Hay Bar (little Safari) and a day at Holot Kasui (Kasui sand dunes) + lunch at Ne'ot Samdar. better to go with another family.

Rooms clean and functional, not too big though. Very welcoming and helpfull volunteers, members and residents. Very interesting intro in history and future of the still cooperative style Kibbutz (On demand). Nice meals in the right ambiance. You can visit other Kibbutz in the neighborhood.

The rooms are very very basic, and the wifi isn't very good, but this is one of my favorite places on the planet. The values they live buy are inspiring, the pool is refreshing, the BBQ they had for us was delicious. If you aren't looking for 5 stars but are looking a true Israeli Kibbutz experience, this is the...

Like others wrote, this isnt a hotel, but it's great! It's about 35 minutes from Eilat, so something to keep in mind. The rooms are simple, although large with a kitchen, dining table, small couch, bed and bathroom. There is also a porch out back. Ate breakfast in the main dining hall. Nothing fancy, but they do have a special...

We are now repeat visitors to Keren Kolot. This location is easy to get to by car or bus, and has nice, large comfortable rooms at an affordable price. Breakfast is delicious and gives visitors a quick peek into kibbutz life. There is a lot to see locally, such as Chai Bar, Timna Park, and, of course, Eilat. This is...

We spent a wonderful 2 nights with all our children and grandchildren at this fabulous location just 50 kilometers north of Eilat. Our party comprised 10 adults and 13 children ranging in age from 18 months to almost 19. The accommodation was excellent - clean, comfortable and practical. We enjoyed our meals and the atmosphere in the Kibbutz dining room....
