Royal Beach Review

At the jewel in the Isrotel chain's crown, guests discover a blend of comfort, glamour, and sophistication. Opened in 1994, across the promenade from the beach, the colossal Royal Beach is Eilat's answer to Miami's South Beach. It has a serene atrium with cushy, smoky green leather couches and modern, cobalt blue sculptures suspended from ropes throughout the lobby. Three-story glass windows bring graceful bamboo and palm trees inside. A large terrace—crammed with multicolored flowers, overhead fans, and kilim rugs—faces the Bay of Eilat, providing especially stunning views at sundown. Rooms are decorated in warm blue; all have comfortable sofas and chairs and a balcony. Suites come with whirlpool tubs. For the best views, ask for a higher floor. And note that VIPs and those booking in the "Royal" room category or higher receive access to the Presidential Lounge and breakfast at a separate restaurant, Bubbe's.
