Across the globe, the Ritz-Carlton name evokes quality of service and un-parallel luxury and the Herzliya hotel in Israel is no exception.
On a sunny stretch of shoreline, the modern 12-story Herzliya is set amid upscale restaurants, shops and the bustling marina that make up the area of Herzliya Pituach, near Tel Aviv. The first 5-star hotel to be built in Israel for two decades, the Herzliya sets new standards in comfort and is the first stop for any discerning traveler looking for a first class base just 20 minutes from the financial capital.
The hotel’s 115 rooms are styled in a modern, neutral way with soft sand and sea cream and blue tones that are easy on the eye. All the mod cons are on hand such as a well-stocked mini bar and super-soft feather bedding. Some rooms also have balconies from which to fully appreciate the stunning ocean views.
The hotel’s restaurant, the ‘Herbert Samuel’ is the first kosher restaurant in the history of the Ritz-Carlton and has quickly won accolades as one of the most elegant places in the region to eat.
Under the careful eye of Chef Yonathan Roshfeld, the original pioneer of Israel’s “farm to table cuisine” movement, the menu focuses on the delights of southern Mediterranean dishes, highlighting local ingredients and staple dishes with a modern approach, such as the highly addictive sesame-rich “frozen tahini” that guests should certainly sample.
No visit here is complete without a visit to the 12th story rooftop bar, which affords patrons truly breathtaking views of the Herzliya coastline.
