Iran’s first hut hotel was recently opened for tourists in the city of Qal’e Ganj in southern Kerman province, southeast Iran. The hotel can host up to 60 guests in its 31 huts. All goods, equipment and handicrafts used in the huts are produced by local inhabitants and craftspeople. The project was undertaken by the charities Iran Mostazafan and Janbazan (foundations for the oppressed and disabled).
Visitors now have the chance to experience traditional Iranian desert dwellings, but without missing out on the luxuries of a modern hotel.
