At the southern end of the beach, this luxurious hotel is a magnet for celebrities—and with 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 Neveh 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.
