Royal Beach Tel Aviv

The new Royal Beach Hotel is the first large luxury hotel in Tel Aviv since way back in 1999. It was well worth the wait.

Amelia and Eleanor are here to help give you the inside track.

With 230 rooms across 23 storey and all with views (and most with balconies) looking out over the beach and Mediterranean beyond, the Royal Beach Hotel Tel Aviv is a contemporary bolthole for couples and families alike, with the spacious 15th to 19th floor suites particularly perfect for parents and children.

All the very comfortable rooms and suites have the expected creature comforts from free Wi-Fi to LCD TVs but guests will doubtless want to make the most of the large outdoor pool (with adjacent toddler pool) and the beach a few footsteps beyond. There's also an indoor pool on the fourth floor.

Guests can enjoy excellent Israeli breakfasts and other meals in the beach-view West Side restaurant, and for a change of scene the four-storey tall lobby has a bar serving tapas and drinks. The lobby is also home to a constantly changing roster of paintings and digital art from young Israeli contemporary artists.

Finally, after wandering around the so-called White City, put those weary feet up in the Carmel Forest Health Resort & Spa, complete with treatment rooms and a hammam steam room.

Why we love it

Because the location is hard to beat, right on the city's famous boardwalk with the beach beyond, but also within walking distance of highlights such as the nearby Carmel and Nachalat Binyamin Street Markets

Just because a city is ancient in the extreme doesn’t mean the accommodation there needs to be, and the funky Mamilla Hotel in Jerusalem is a contemporary case in point.

Beresheet Hotel

Beresheet Hotel

The beautiful but stark Negev desert was once somewhere to observe from the window of an air conditioned car on route to Eilat and the Red Sea, but the opening of the Beresheet Hotel in 2011 has changed all that.

The Norman

The Norman

With apologies to Normans everywhere, the funkiest new luxury hotel in Tel Aviv could have come up with a cooler name. Moniker aside, we are extremely excited about The Norman – great location, iconic Bauhaus exterior (created from two 1920s buildings), Israeli contemporary art adorning the walls and immaculate rooms. Oh, and a rooftop pool.

In the running for best boutique hotel in Tel Aviv, the Alma Hotel & Lounge sits pistachio pretty in the heart of Tel Aviv’s famed Bauhaus White City district.
