About five minutes from the Egyptian border, Eilat's southernmost hotel is also one of its most luxurious. Among the dazzling public spaces is a a light-filled reception area facing a two-story sheer rock cliff. The pool area—the largest in the city—is a country club in itself, where squiggle-shaped pools connected by bridges afford views of the charcoal gray mountains across the bay. Down at the serene snorkeling beach, reached via a short tunnel, two jetties lead
to the water. The spa in this self-contained resort is modern but a bit cramped, and the two restaurants offer superb fare.
