Tel Aviv-Yafo

“Isrotel’s newest addition is really something special. Located in Sde Boker, within walking distance of the desert home of David Ben-Gurion, hotel Kedma is the perfect getaway”, writes guest reviewer Amanda Chalkin.

Only 2 hours drive from Tel Aviv, you enter a world of desert relaxation from the moment you step inside. The stunning Nabatean design with its desert décor, creates a feeling of calm and tranquility, and makes the perfect backdrop for all your instagram shots!

The rooms are positioned around the central courtyard. They’re spacious and tastefully decorated, in keeping with the hotel’s theme, and have the most comfortable beds guaranteeing a restful nights sleep. Other amenities include a large pool with plenty of sunbeds, a gym and a beautiful spa for a truely relaxing experience.

Breakfast and dinner buffets are delicious with a wide variety of choices, and for something more low-key, there’s the gorgeous restaurant lounge (halavi) and the pool bar during the day (basari).

The evenings are something special at Kedma. Once the sun goes down, the outdoor fire pits are lit around the pool, creating the perfect ambiance for an evening drink amongst the lemon trees, and the lounge bar also hosts live music.

If you have had enough relaxation, there’s plenty of activities to keep you busy, including an organized walk to Ben Gurion’s house, or a smart phone photography lesson to brush up your skills.  For kids there’s a fun games room suitable for all ages, organized activities, and a shaded kids pool for little ones.

We really can’t recommend this hotel enough; it’s got everything you need for a perfect stay in the Negev and you won’t be disappointed.
