Facilities And Experiences
Here at Desert Shade, we take special care that your stay with us will ensure an authentic, simple, clean, and peaceful desert experience. Desert Shade Eco-Camp is waiting for you with facilities and experiences that simply connect you with nature.
The Stone Gallery
The Stone Gallery was built by hand so you can sit down in desert style, and enjoy the view of the crater from the big framed windows. Just like a gallery of desert pictures.
Right now, due to health considerations, during the breakfast and reception hours, there will be no sitting in the Gallery.
What's In The Gallery
These Sun Terraces are built in the same methods the ancient Nabateans used for their agriculture. The Sun Terraces are covered with marble floors, carved from the crater, and facing its view.
On the terraces, you’ll be able to absorb the sun’s energy during the day and gaze at the stars during the night. We invite you to enjoy the best seats, in the dazzling show of a sunrise over the Ramon Crater.
When you look for a little bit of shade from the deserts sun, you can enjoy the sheds scattered around the camp.
The Bedouin Tent
The Bedouin Tent invites you to an authentic desert experience. This tent was embroidered from goat’s wool, by Bedouin women, over 30 years ago.
You are invited to sit and enjoy the view in this space during the sunny day and get shelter from the wind during the winter.
What's In The Bedouin Tent
Our light yet nutritious breakfast preserves the ancient Nabatean tradition.
Every morning they went out for a long hike in the desert. Tens of kilometers in the hot sun. Therefore it was important to eat a healthy, yet light, breakfast.
You can collect your breakfast from the Stone Gallery and enjoy the meal with the same views the ancient Nabateans have experienced.
Requires Advanced Reservation
The Maqa’as is a multi-purpose, airconditioned, studio designed for workshops and retreats. It is located in the front of the camp, right in front of the crater’s view. It is perfect for yoga workshops, leadership workshops, meditation, conferences, and more. Can be closed during the winter.
