Desert Shade
Reviewed 18 January 2013

The most amazing thing about this place is the view... Desert Shade resides on the edge of the Ramon Crater, away from the city lights. You can see the sunrise from your bed without having to get out! The private eco tents, where I stayed are basic yet have an amazing decoration, with glass bottle in all colors integrated into the mud and sheet, hand-built, room. The shared bathrooms and showers are clean with hot water 24/7/ The common area, where reception and dining area are located, is an amazing hand built stone building, with an entire wall from glass, overlooking the crater. Having breakfast, with olives and dates from the desert, to this view was incredible! The place is located right on the road to the outdoor stone garden, and a short walk to the edge of the crater. You can rent bicycle and go biking or arrange for camel ride. The hosts are extremely knowledgeable about the area and can recommend hiking trails and provide maps. Would certainly recommend staying here if you are looking for a down to earth experience, quiet place and seeing nature every minute of your stay!

Room Tip: the private eco-tents are convenient and close to the shared bathroom facility
