Usually when you come to Israel for a trip you will go to Tel Aviv or Jerusalem and experience the urban landscape with the hustle and bustle of the big city .
If you like a different experience where you can connect to the quiet of the desert two hours from Tel Aviv (and also Jerusalem) in the middle of the desert there is a special place with magical people and once in a lifetime experience, this is the world’s first capsule hotel built in the middle Desert .
There are several accommodation options available but sleeping in concrete pipes and in the middle of the desert is a unique experience!

So we left the city and slowly the urban landscape changes into the yellow and brown colors of the desert and the quiet slowly takes over.
Naot Farm is 3 minutes from the raod as you come down a panoramic desert landscape opens in front of us, walking towards the reception and peace is already evident everywhere and the time here is different. On the farm there is a goat’s house that produces milk, which makes it particularly tasty cheese.
The farm is built on a ridge that overflows a lot of water during the winter, and there is a pool for shower and shared toilet and an open kitchen where you can cook independently plus two pipes with shared shower facilities, hammocks, seating benches and a graceful pool.

The main attraction is a series of huge concrete water pipes that have become accommodation capsules with a transparent glass door.
In each capsule a double bed, two reading lamps, and air conditioner that let’s not forget that we are in the middle of the desert.
The size of each capsule is two and a half feet long by two meters wide.
Push the suitcase under the bed and so that they do not see what you are doing, there is a curtain on the glass door.

The farm also have four rooms 2 double and 2 for family with small private pools and mountain view.
The farm has been in existence for 15 years and was built by the hands of the founding family who came with a small tent, two cars, five children and 48 goats.
