Fodor's Expert Review Cramim Spa & Wine Hotel

Off Rte. 425, 9083300, Israel Fodor's Choice

The name translates to "vineyards," and grapes are the inspiration for every facet of this spa hotel set in the beautiful Jerusalem hills, including the trellis surrounding the estate. Rooms are decorated in calming shades of violet and green, and most have balconies. There are wine workshops in the on-site shop, and wine-themed quotes from Song of Songs printed on the walls. Indoor and outdoor pools, a Turkish hammam, and 40 spa treatment rooms add to the understated luxury. Enjoy the dizzying variety of the buffet on tables overlooking the property's vineyards. The Imperial Red Bar, a branch of the famous Tel Aviv cocktail bar, draws both hotel guests and locals. The hotel is quite pricey, but booking in advance can help scout deals, and spa day packages are also available.
