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 year old enjoyed the ecotour where we learned about an electricity-free, natural "microwave", how to save and recycle water, gardening without pesticides and even how to compost pooh (without any smells)! He is even considering returning to live and volunteer for a few months.
Don't expect luxury, but do expect very clean rooms, comfortable beds and a delicious, organic, and vegan breakfast. We will definitely be back and are already adopting some of what we learned in our lives.
