Israel is having a tourism moment. In order to facilitate the large number of travelers coming to the country, a number of hotels are in the process of being built and brought under proper management.

In a recent announcement, the Israel Ministry of Tourism announced four new hotels set to open in the coming months.

The Schumacher Hotel in northern Israel recently completed a renovation on its 40 rooms and suites. The hotel features a restaurant, sun terrace and garden area as well as a number of meeting facilities.

The Daniel Hotel Herzliya is another recently renovated hotel north of Tel Aviv. The 31-room property is located on the beach, business-focused and features a spa, an outdoor pool, beach access, a business lounge, a conference center, two restaurants and a kids club.

In August, the WOM Allenby opened in Tel Aviv. The brand-new, pod-style hotel is just a block from the beach promenade and offers 40 stylish pod rooms to serve urban travelers. Each pod is outfitted with Egyptian cotton sheets, a desk, air conditioning, television, storage space and a safe.

Finally, a historic building in the White City neighborhood of Tel Aviv is getting renovated into a hotel. The Kabala Center will feature 90 rooms, a restaurant, a rooftop pool and a health and fitness center when it opens in about two years.

The Island of the Knights

Welcome to Rhodes, a medieval treasure beautifully preserved throughout the centuries. Rhodes is the capital of the Dodecanese, an island ideal not only for those who want to relax, but also for those looking for an action-packed holiday! With its bright green hills, rich green valleys and uninterrupted line of golden beaches, Rhodes is truly a blessed place. “The sun island” has more sunshiny days and milder temperatures throughout the year than any other location in Greece. It is, after all, one of the country’s easternmost places and among the first to welcome summer on its impressive beaches. Add in the excellent facilities for tourism, the island’s special blend of cosmopolitan and traditional, and numerous cultural and archaeological sites, the most important being the Medieval (Old) Town, a UNESCO World Heritage site, and you’ve got the perfect holiday destination. While on Rhodes, don’t miss a daytrip to nearby Sými. An island of sponge divers and seamen, Sými used to have 30,000 inhabitants before the Second World War and was the richest island in the Dodecanese, despite its small size. Today, Sými attracts many visitors thanks to its beautifully preserved Neo-Classical buildings and the famous Archangel Michael monastery at Panormitis.
