Amazing, stunning views, a MUST visit in Israel. It took us 2 hours and a half from Herzelia. Great to disconnect away from everything and discover the wonders of Mother Nature;)

Beersheet hotel is on the Mipzke Ramon crater in Negev desert. Architecture, interior design, swimming pools and restaurants make it a luxurious oasis in a fascinating part of the world.
