WHAT MAKES THIS HOTEL UNIQUE?
It’s really grounded in its location, using only solar energy to heat the showers and run the refrigerators. At night, the staff light hundreds of candles transforming the process of returning to your room after dinner into a magical experience.
The cuisine is made with ingredients sourced from local villages and farms. A Bedouin mother supplies freshly baked bread for the lodge on a daily basis (whether her many children assist in the dough production is something to find out while at the hotel). From your terrace, while you dine on the coffee, falafel, and fresh fruit of a typical Arabic breakfast, you can see the shepherds taking their herds into the valley.
Join them as one of the cultural immersions you can plan through the lodge, or take a cooking class with the locals. Hikes and other forays into the desert—by mountain bike, for example—are also easily arranged.
