The Thermal Pool

One of Dar Hi Life’s most unique features is its outdoor thermal pool that is heated with natural hot springs from the Tunisian Sahara desert. This natural thermal pool is exclusive to hotel guests and is cleaned on a regular basis. You can fully immerse yourself in the thermal water for relaxation and its wellness and therapeutic benefits.

The Rooms

The 18 rooms in Hotel Dar Hi Life are designed with 4 concepts in mind. We would recommend staying in the rooms built as elevated individual house units which offer a panoramic view of the surrounding scenery. The room inside includes a glass window panel that overlooks the palm oasis below.

What To Do In Nefta?

The guesthouse reception can organize beautiful walks in the oasis or in the desert.

You can also visit the nearby Sahara city of Tozeur located about 30 minutes away by car. There are lots of family-fun activities in Tozeur such as ziplining, visiting a palm date museum, visiting a Sahara zoo, exploring the Chak Wak museum, and much more.

For Star Wars fans, you will not want to miss out on visiting the nearby Star Wars Film Locations including the Lars Homestead Exterior (Luke Skywalker igloo house), Mos Espa site, Ong Jamal, and the Sidi Bouhlel (Star Wars Canyon). All of these sites can be visited as a day excursion from Nefta. There are other Star Wars film locations located further in Matmata, Medenine, and Djerba.
