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


Crowne Plaza Hotel, Tel Aviv

Crowne Plaza Tel Aviv Beach overlooks the Mediterranean Sea, and offers direct access to its sandy beaches. It features an outdoor swimming pool which is heated and covered during colder months.

The hotel is located at the North end of Tel Aviv’s seafront promenade, a few minutes on foot from the cultural and entertainment areas. The old city of Jaffa is a short drive away.

The sea-view Bellissima Restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and all meals are buffet style.


Kedma Hotel, Sde Boker

The enchanting Negev Desert is a magnetic tourist draw thanks to its breathtaking natural beauty, pollution-free arid climate,
and the host of hidden tourist gems just waiting to be discovered. Kedma, the newest addition to the Isrotel family,
is one such find. If you’re looking for an exquisite desert oasis, look no further than this awe-inspiring hotel.
Located in Sde Boker, walking distance from the desert home of David Ben-Gurion, Israel’s first prime minister,
this Nabatean khan-style hotel offers a unique Negev-inspired hospitality experience in the perfect tranquil base for local excursions.

The hotel’s 163 warm and welcoming rooms and suites have been built around an expansive open-air courtyard that hosts a serene pool surrounded
by luscious fruit trees and beautiful plants. This layout, that recalls days past, blends seamlessly with the surrounding scenery,
and offers endless opportunities for rest and relaxation within the grounds’ many quiet corners.
Bask in the water and shaded areas of this glorious oasis and leave feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.



Dan Panorama Hotel, Jerusalem

The Dan Panorama Hotel Jerusalem, with its dignified architecture and honey-colored Jerusalem stone exterior, resonates with the spirit of this legendary city.
The Dan Panorama Hotel, boasts an exceptional location that lets you explore Jerusalem’s multifaceted attractions simply by stepping outside.

Across the road from the Dan Panorama Hotel Jerusalem is the splendid Bloomfield Garden, one of the largest parks in Jerusalem and from which you overlook the city. At the end of the park is the famous Yemin Moshe neighborhood. The neighborhood was established in 1891 by Moses Montefiore and was the first Jewish district built outside the walls of Jerusalem. The Montefiore Windmill stands high above the red-roofed houses, which provided cheap flour to the residents and today is a museum that showcases Montefiore’s vision.
