Fodor's Review

Down an unpaved road, this out-of-the-ordinary cluster of stone-and-wood huts sits on a rocky hillside. For the rugged traveler seeking the starkness and purity of the desert, it's an appealing example of ecotourism. Each hut has a carpet on its earthen floor and a mattress piled with cozy blankets; household essentials include a tea corner, a clay water jar, and copper bowls for ablutions. The units are solar-powered, and there's an eco-friendly toilet cabin. Guests eat in the communal dining room. You can ask a staff member to pick you up from outside the Ramon Inn. Plan to arrive before dark.
