At the southern end of the beach, this luxurious hotel's suites are often reserved by visiting celebrities—and with the gorgeous views of the sea, it's easy to understand why. Some rooms have a hint of Spanish style, with warm colors and brick-hued fabrics that complement the red-tile roofs of the Neve Tzedek neighborhood below. The atrium lobby has soaring ceilings, marble floors, and a high-end shopping arcade. Breakfast offers a great taste of Israel in one meal.
The hotel's restaurant, Aubergine, specializes in Mediterranean cuisine. An extensive menu of Israeli wines from the major wineries is another plus.
