YOUR INSPIRATION TO EXPLORE THE WORLD

Another Reason to Visit Israel: The Jaffa Opens

jaffa2

It’s no secret that travelling to Tel Aviv, Israel, is one of the best decisions you could make this year. The culture, the people, the history—there’s no need to twist anyone’s arm. In fact, the Abu Hasan hummus alone would be worth the trip across the world (it’s seriously the best you’ll find in the Middle East). But now, there’s a second reason to jump on that trans-Atlantic flight: The Jaffa hotel.

Design

Just outside Tel Aviv, The Jaffa offers its guests one of the coolest experiences. It’s in this old, 19th-Century historic building that once housed Jaffa’s French Hospital – it’s truly the first luxury hotel of its kind. Architect John Pawson, when collaborating with Ramy Gill in the creation of this heritage hotel, intended to keep that rich historic feeling—but with some contemporary updates, of course.

The Details

And since it would take way too long to talk about The Jaffa’s 4,000-year history (yes, that’s right), let’s focus on the present. You have all the modern luxuries you could possibly want from this 5-star hotel.

Amenities

The rooms are everything you could want and more, the fitness center is top of the line, and the 4,500-square-foot L. Raphael Beauty Spa is the perfect place to decompress after a long day of visiting the city. On top of all the traditional services you can imagine, The Jaffa spa offers their renowned Oxygen, Ultra-Gravity, and Beauty Diamond treatments.

The Food

But we haven’t even talked about the best part, yet: the food. If you find yourself hungry at The Jaffa, you’re in luck. You’ve got a couple of options. Right under our noses, the guys running The Major Food group recently opened a few new locations, and two of them are at The Jaffa. Don Camillo and Golda’s Delicatessen offer Italian and authentic New York cuisine (respectively). But they both take advantage of the heavenly Mediterranean ingredients, creating a truly unique dining experience. When it comes to one-of-a-kind food, these guys definitely know what they’re doing.

So, yes, there’s always been plenty of reasons to visit Tel Aviv. But now, thanks to The Jaffa Hotel, there’s simply no excuse not to.
