About EnGedi Guest House, Conference and Function Venue
As the original Hebrew name suggests, EnGedi literally is an oasis. Tucked away in The Cradle of Humankind, this multi-purpose venue is focused on providing an oasis experience just for you. Be it soon-to-be newlyweds, families, friends, companies, groups, clubs or schools.
EnGedi competitively and consistently offers more than you would expect and, positioned in The Cradle of Humankind, provides a natural haven. EnGedi’s diverse facilities makes it possible to effectively capture any audience and our dedicated team is here to make your experience a memorable one.
EnGedi’s facilities are all connected by classically chessboard stone-tiled and grass pathways, and each venue boasts a unique function and layout. The manicured, park-like gardens greet you and from there you can choose to enter the robust banqueting venue, complete with tastefully decorated foyer, private lounges and luxurious bathroom facilities, all of which walk out onto a perfectly positioned wooden deck overlooking a tranquil dam that hosts a variety of indigenous and exotic birds and koi fish.
Alternatively, you can follow the pathway to an exquisite ceremonial chapel, with an exquisite view of the mountain range. You can pause on the wooden swing or watch the world go by on one of a number of benches carefully positioned throughout the gardens. From this position, you will be able to view our Bistro and the Café Terrace positioned under and amongst trees.
On the inside of this building a plush coffee lounge awaits. Open the doors on the other side of the building and the sunny breakfast courtyard will greet you as you meander past the eight luxury suites set in an exquisite landscaped English garden, overlooking the Cradle of Humankind’s beauty. It is the perfect environment for relaxation, rejuvenation and simple serenity.
Our facilities are also equipped and open to corporate entities looking for the ideal location to hold corporate functions, getaways, conferences or brain storming sessions. All venue rooms boast up-to date technology to assist in any occasion, from a small private meeting to large conferences. EnGedi aims at delivering an oasis experience for the business market combining beauty and proficiency.
Wedding Venues: A winding stoned-tiled pathway across the lawn leads to an impressive pergola, which is a perfect chapel for those wanting an outdoor ceremony surrounded by lush green gardens, exquisite flowers and shrubs.
Conference Venues: EnGedi’s facilities can be adjusted to suit the size and style of your conference.
