Dar Hi Life
Ranked #1 of 4 Hotels in Nefta
Reviewed 23 April 2017

Our stay in Nefta has been amazing thanks to this piece of heaven on hearth. Dar Hi is an amazing eco-lodge where space is fluid, the atmosphere is relaxed and you feel so in touch with nature you don't want to leave.
Impeccable service, amazing views and great dinners prepared by the local women made this a memorable stay.
This is a great space for couples, friends and families to come together and enjoy a wonderful experiece.
The pool is also filled with hot spring water and it was a very special feature of this hotel, which I recommend trying at sunset or in the evening.

I cannot wait to plan my next visit to this wonderful place

i took a road trip with my brother to the south of Tunisia to discover our roots.
we arrived at Dar Hi after 8 hours of (me) driving (as he had just broken his foot)
We were the only guests in the whole hotel and felt like kings.
the staff was brilliant, without being over-bearing. All local people, which ads to my respect of the owners who simply manage this as a family place apparently.
i didnt get a peak at the hammam, but my brother was amazed at it, and he is picky.

We had a wonderful time in the hotel. It was a welcome change from the usual mass tourism in Tunisia, very small and individual with e.g. the meals being prepared just for us. The design and the view from the hotel was wonderful and the staff very friendly.

I went to this piece of art with 5 colleagues. We stayed for 2 nights and our experience was just amazing. The service is excellent and people working there are really friendly and trying with all tools to meet our expectations and requests. We felt as at home and the welcome was the warmest and nicest ever. The room is exceptional with bay window providing a view on the basket of Nafta and the swimming pool (heated pool). We had a dinner organized by Dar Hi as well in a restaurant that belongs to the same owner, the restaurant in an oasis and the food was a delight; they arranged a folk group to animate our dinner (surrounded by the warm of fire and of people the south that surprised us with their nice welcome and special treatment to their guests). We had a quad adventure and we visited Ong Jmal where they filmed Star Wars in the heart of the desert and this experience was just great! I want to congratulate by the way Mr Jamel Saadi, the general manager of Dar Hi, who organised our stay and met our great expectations for a leisure yet professional stay. Ps: he organized everything for us (the quad, the dinner, physical activities in the hotel for free...).

Room Tip: nice view, warm welcome, Guest house, nice room

Before reserving this hotel you need to understand that the south of Tunisia is completely different than the capital or the cost, this hotel designed for people who are looking for a new experience, it has a wonderful oasis view and the small room has a window box when you can enjoy this view. My wife and I spent new years eve there and it was really good, the hotel was completely booked, however they had only two servers to take care of everybody. the manager of the hotel was a little weird but friendly. It is really close to the spot where they first filmed Star Wars.

Room Tip: Avoid room P6, it has a weird smell

matali crasset created an ecological house in the Tunisian desert.After the experience of the HI hotel in Nice, now Dar HI in Nefta which is the fruit of the collaboration between matali crasset, Patrick Elouarghi and Philippe Chapelet with a new concept of eco-retreat.Matali literally rose a citadel, from the sand, dedicated to well being. Protected by surroundings walls you find a composition of elevated houses that constitute the Dar HI as a small village. The overall architectural goal was to give a strong proposition while inharmony with the natural site and the local life.Dar HI's main colours are ochre and sand with a comprehensive choice of body and spirit care within areas that are private or communal, a pool, a restaurant and a Spa. ... more   less
