There are loads of fabulous hotels that boast exquisite in-house spas like the Mount Zion, Inbal, and David Citadel in Jerusalem. But what about exclusive resorts that specifically cater to the indulgent? Yep, Israel’s got those as well, and here’s a list of the best ones you are not going to want to miss out on this vacation.
The Dead Sea, the prime location for Ein Gedi spa-ing, is world-renowned for its spa experiences. The water, the mud, and the air itself have medicinal properties, and people will travel thousands of miles to partake in the healing powers of this area. Naturally, the spa treatments in this part of Israel are something extraordinary, invigorating black mud and healing hot sulfur springs abound. Sit in the sun and rejuvenate your skin with a mineral mud bath, soak in the sulfur pools, or select one of the more exotic massage treatments like Lomi Lomi or deep tissue massage.
Vered HaGalil Spa
This is a beautiful resort that is quietly tucked away in the Galilean Hills. Don’t let its off the beaten track location fool you. The Vered HaGalil is as luxurious and pampering as they come and all of the staff in this establishment have been professionally trained in Thailand or India. Visitors can indulge in many varieties of relaxation including integrated massage, reflexology, hot stones, shiatsu, aromatherapy, and even a unique program specifically catering to pregnant women.
This spa is a tiny bit of a cheat since it is situated on the Sheraton Tel Aviv grounds. But with a complex that spans close to five thousand square feet, it’s tough not calling the Cielo Spa a presence of its own. Some of the more exciting treatments available to choose from include Turkish baths, fish pedicures, mud wraps, and anti-aging oxygenation processes.
Neve Tzedek Spa
This smaller Japanese spa found in the heart of Tel Aviv specializes in the ancient Japanese traditions of health and healing. Neve Tzedek treatments include natural methods for relaxing, healing, and beautifying the body.
