February 11th 2016

If a vacation consisting of backpacking from one end of the country to another, hitching rides with locals, and eating meals on the floor of Bedouin tents gives you the heebie-jeebies, fear not – Israel has plenty to offer luxury-seekers as well. Israel is home to loads of beautiful, luxurious, and even decadent hotels for the travelers looking to relax on their vacation. Check out five of the hottest hotels for pampering and pleasure while in the Middle East.

Sheraton, Tel Aviv

Sheraton Tel Aviv

If you’re based in Tel Aviv, the Sheraton is a fabulous choice. Situated in the heart of this bustling city, the Sheraton is a second away from delectable restaurants, busy shopping areas, and business centers for your convenience. And with direct access to the beach, you can be sipping pina coladas and basking in the sun and sand within minutes of leaving your room.

Herod’s Vitalis, Eilat


Herod’s is an obvious choice for the luxury-conscious traveler looking for accommodations. This hotel is loaded with all the amenities you could hope for including bar and lounge, spa, pool, fitness center, jacuzzi, and private services such as concierge, room service, business center, and laundry services. The rooms themselves are spacious, beautiful, and so comfortable, you might not want to leave!

Leonardo Plaza, Netanya


The Plaza is part of the Leonardo chain sprinkled across Israel, and the Netanya branch definitely complies with their reputation for style and luxury. The usual amenities are included such as spa, gym, and lounge, but the Leonardo goes the extra mile to provide some less than typical delights. Their rooftop pool is one of the most popular attractions in the country, the exquisite views from the rooms are enchanting, and a direct line to the hopping nightlife in the square below is epic if you’re a party animal.

There’s nothing like waking up to the Old City when visiting Israel. The David Citadel offers a stunning view from your window, but that’s not all: with close to 400 trendy suites and rooms, luxury fitness facilities, and year-round heated pool, it’s not surprising that the Citadel has won traveler’s choice awards for years running.
