The title says it all. My family was so excited about going to this “luxury hotel” in the desert, we saw all the great comments on TripAdvisor, the “naturally heated” pool, the hammam, the desert view, “nice” staff... Don’t believe it. It’s really one of...More

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 ...More 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.
