Waterfront hotel with a fantastic outlook, direct access to the beach and plenty of facilities.
Of our two featured Isrotel hotels in Eilat, the flagship Royal Beach Eilat has the best setting. It’s just steps from a private section of the city’s North Beach (shared with guests of the sister hotels) and within easy reach of the Royal Boardwalk and the shops and bars that line the marina. The focus here is on the network of pools to the front of the hotel which is surrounded by natural-looking rocks and verdant landscaping, and the Carmel Forest Spa. In this tranquil adults-only space there’s a hot tub, Turkish hammam, sauna and fitness centre, and the spa menu features over seventy massages and beauty treatments. For younger guests, there’s the Kidos Club and a shallow swimming pool that’s ideal for little ones.
When it comes to rooms, the hotel really makes the most of its seafront setting: many of the rooms have a sea view from their balcony. The Bellavista Rooms are located on floors 3 to 10 (the third floor rooms are bigger but do not have a balcony) and either look towards the surrounding mountains or over the Red Sea. The Family Rooms are larger and have a separate area with twin beds where the kids can sleep. If you want a few added extras such as access to the adults-only VIP lounge and breakfast at the Bubbes restaurant, choose one of the Royal Rooms or Presidential Rooms.
The hotel’s main restaurant, Vista, is where breakfast will be served daily. If you opt to upgrade to half board, dinner will also be served here. Dishes are fresh and many are created in open kitchens. On one of Eilat’s many sunny days they can be enjoyed on the open-air terrace that overlooks the pool. Head to the Royal Promenade, which is located just along from the Royal Beach Eilat, for a taste of Tuscany at La Cucina or traditional grill dishes at the Ranch House.
