Israel’s Best Romantic Hotels for Couples

If you are planning a trip to Israel as a couple, then you might benefit from exploring the various romance-friendly accommodation options the country has to offer. From intimate zimmers (luxury boutique cabins) to fancy spa hotels, you can tailor your vacation experience and make your tour to Israel one to remember.

Mamilla Hotel, Jerusalem

Situated in the heart of Jerusalem, just steps from the disarmingly picturesque walls of the Old City, the posh Mamilla Hotel has become one of the hottest addresses in the city, with an upscale shopping center of the same name and world-class restaurants and bars in the hotel. Treat yourselves to a pampering couples therapy at their Akasha Wellbeing Center, which was named one of the world’s best new spas by Conde Nast Traver Magazine.

Bayit Bagalil, Upper Galilee

Escape to the scenic north of Israel for a romantic couples retreat at Bayit Bagalil in the lush upper Galilee. Nestled in a nature preserve and overlooking the Sea of Galilee, the estate is reminiscent of a French chateau. Every one of its romantic suits (there are only 26) boasts amenities like goose down pillows and stone bathrooms with Jacuzzis.

Carmel Forest Spa, Haifa

The Carmel Forest Spa Resort, located in the coastal city of Haifa, is a true lovers’ escape. With sweeping views of the breathtaking Carmel Forest and the aquamarine Mediterranean, the stylish rooms come outfitted with high-end amenities and are so comfortable you may not want to leave. Should you venture out, you can relax by the pool, play tennis or get a spa treatment.

Dan Hotel, Eilat

The southernmost city in Israel, Eilat is a gorgeous resort town on the Red Sea and the perfect spot for a romantic getaway. The Dan Hotel Eilat is a self-contained vacation paradise right on the beach. Lounge by the atmospheric pool, relax in the outdoor Jacuzzi, or treat yourself to the on-site Turkish baths for a truly pampered experience.

King David Hotel, Jerusalem

Possibly one of the world’s most famous historic hotels, the King David Hotel in Jerusalem is one of the city’s great landmarks. As the hotel of choice for visiting dignitaries and celebrities, it guarantees a high level of service and amenities, and the old Middle Eastern palatial décor is timeless. Its incredible location makes it a perfect base for your tours of Jerusalem and Israel, and couples will enjoy strolling through their charming private gardens or relaxing by the quiet adults’ pool.
