STAY

TLV is a perfect option as there are a wide range of hotels for you to choose from. Some people like to stay in a big chain while others like to stay in small boutiques. We usually opt for an all white boutique. Here are some of our hotel recommendations..

Boutiques       

🗝 The Norman

Although not situated directly on the beach front, this all white and chic boutique has a rooftop pool- somewhere for you to sit back, relax and enjoy those rooftop views. Rooms are a good and spacious size, perfect for a few days in this amazing city. The Norman also has two restaurants, one of them being Dinings (a famous London Japanese), and Alena- serving up Mediterranean cuisine. You’re looking at 300-500£ a night depending on season.

Think dark woods and textures, think palm trees, think seriously chic in the heart of TLV. 

Although no pool, there is such a cute roof deck which has jacuzzis perfect for your sundown cocktail. Rooms are so reasonable at the peak of high summer at only £100+ per night! The rooms are seriously spacious and there’s even a spa.

LUXE LIFE

🗝 The Setai Jaffa

Escape the hustle and bustle of the pure city for a few days after endless 5am nights- and travel 15 mins to the quieter part of Jaffa. 

Accommodations at The Setai Tel Aviv were designed to the highest standards of international luxury, featuring rich walnut furnishings, sea stone walls, custom brass fixtures, Middle Eastern fabrics that evoke the hotel’s history with modern comforts. Guests take their first step each morning onto authentic Oriental rugs, adding purposeful pops of color to the elegant, earth-tone decor.

Housed within a historic Ottoman building, once used as a jailhouse, The Setai Tel Aviv offers an enviable entryway to the wonders of the Jaffa Port, Tel Aviv’s full beach coastline and steps away from the city’s bustling boulevards.

JERUSALEM  

No trip to Israel is complete without a trip to Jerusalem.  A two hour drive away from Tel Aviv, it’s worth it just for how special it is. 

Jerusalem is one the oldest cities in the world and home to the Western Wall which is the last remaining segment of the Jewish Temple. Make sure you put your special prayers into the wall 🙌🏽 to bring you all sorts of good luck.
