Enjoy your trip to Israel to it’s fullest at these luxurious hotels:



The Orient Jerusalem hotel, part of the Isrotel Exclusive Collection, is nestled at the heart of the German Colony, walking distance from countless cultural, tourist, and historic attractions: the First Station, Liberty Bell Park, and Mishkenot Sha’ananim, as well as charming boutiques and bistros. The Old City and the Western Wall is just 2 miles away.

The Orient Jerusalem’s 243 exceptionally luxurious rooms and suites showcase an eclectic design, merging classic motifs with modern innovations. Thirty-nine rooms are housed in a lovingly-restored 19th century Templer heritage building, where guests receive exclusive VIP services, including: a personal concierge, private check-in/out, daily newspaper and chef’s gift, complimentary business lounge access, free bicycle rental, and more.

Guests can unwind in the rooftop pool overlooking iconic landmarks, or the indoor pool on the spa level, near the gym, saunas, and Turkish hamam. The spa also presents pampering Carmel Forest Spa treatments.



The combination of breath-taking desert scenery together with the unique architecture and top-quality service makes Beresheet one of the most extraordinary hotels in Israel.

All rooms are separated and each has a private entrance. All rooms include a hall, a spacious bedroom and a massive bathroom.
