A Tel Aviv favourite with a tranquil spa and an unbeatable ocean front setting.
The striking Hilton Tel Aviv is one of the most popular and established hotels in the city and a destination within its own right. It has a great setting surrounded by Independence Park and is just a short downhill walk to Hilton beach, a small sheltered bay with golden sands. The park setting also allows for uninterrupted views from every angle. To the north, the coast seems to stretch onwards for miles and to the south the beaches come to an end at the historic quarter of Old Jaffa; to the west there’s the Med – be sure to catch at least one sunset from your Deluxe Sea View Room’s balcony – and to the east the rooftops of the city.
The highlight of the hotel is the 25-metre pool. It has an elevated setting above the waterfront promenade giving sun seekers far-reaching sea views as they laze on one of the many surrounding loungers. Between sightseeing adventures, you’re going to want to set aside at least a few hours to spend relaxing by the pool, on the beach or at the Thai-influenced Sheva Spa. The rest of your time can be spent following the Tayelet Boardwalk past the regenerated port area, onwards south to Jaffa, the ancient port city that Tel Aviv grew out from, and into the UNESCO-listed White City and the chic neighbourhood of Neve Tzedek.
An extensive buffet breakfast is served until 11am at the sea view restaurant, Café Med; you can have a lazy morning or head out on an early morning adventure and return with plenty of time to grab some Israeli favourites such as cheeses, salads, salmon and mackerel. This informal venue is also open for dinner on Fridays and lunch on Saturdays. The hotel’s two fine dining venues include French and Med-inspired Chloélys and the Yakimono Sushi Bar which are both open for dinner (reservations are recommended). Food is also available at the Lobby Bar & Restaurant, and during the summer, the Pool Bar.
