Dar Hi Life – Nefta

A modern, multi-level desert building with angular architecture and solar panels on the roofs, surrounded by arid landscaping, reminiscent of Dar Hi Life.

Nestled at the edge of the Sahara Desert, Nefta, Tunisia, is a unique place to stay offering a unique blend of natural beauty and cultural richness. Our recent visit to Dar Hi Life, an eco-friendly retreat in this enchanting oasis, was an experience that left us rejuvenated and inspired.

From the moment we arrived at Dar Hi Life, we were captivated by its distinctive architecture. Designed by French designer Matali Crasset, the retreat seamlessly blends with the surrounding landscape. The use of local materials and traditional building techniques gives it a harmonious feel, as if it were an organic part of the oasis itself.

Stepping inside, we were greeted with warm hospitality and a serene atmosphere. Dar Hi Life’s commitment to sustainability and wellness is evident in every aspect. The rooms, each uniquely designed, offer stunning views of the palm grove and the vast desert beyond. The minimalist decor, combined with modern amenities, creates a perfect balance between comfort and simplicity.

One of the highlights of our stay at Dar Hi Life was the thermal spa. Drawing from Nefta’s natural hot springs, the spa offers a range of treatments that left us feeling completely revitalised. Soaking in the warm, mineral-rich waters while gazing at the desert sunset was an unforgettable experience.

Exploring Nefta itself was equally insteresting. Known as the “Corbeille” due to its unique bowl-shaped geography, the town is a labyrinth of narrow streets and historic buildings. We visited the ancient medina, where the local market bustles with life and offers a variety of spices, handicrafts, and traditional Tunisian delicacies. The locals, with their friendly smiles and welcoming nature, added a personal touch to our journey.

The hotel is not far from Star Wars filming locations. For fans of the franchise they would enjoy walking through the familiar yet otherworldly landscape.

If you’re seeking a unique escape that combines luxury with sustainability, Dar Hi Life is a choice that should be on your list.
