Desert Serenity


Sde Boker Hotels

Sde Boker is a Kibbutz located in Israel’s southern Negev Desert. After retiring from politics, David Ben-Gurion chose to settle here to promote his vision of settling the Negev. Visitors to Sde Boker can explore Ben Gurion’s original hut, now a museum showcasing the life of Israel’s first Prime Minister. He and his wife, Paula, are buried at nearby Midreshet Ben Gurion (Ben Gurion Field School). Spending time in this area allows you to immerse yourself in the desert’s serenity and peacefulness by trekking its many hiking trails. One notable trek leads through the magnificent Ein Avdat National Park. On this page, I have compiled a list of the best accommodations in the Sde Boker area. Clicking the “Reserve” button will take you to the website, where you can learn more about each accommodation and make your reservation.
