Best Luxury Hotels In Haifa

Israel’s third largest city (after Jerusalem and Tel Aviv) is the country’s major port, a metropolis with a Biblical history. Running from the coast of the Mediterranean, its boundaries encompass the slopes of Mount Carmel, beaches and the German Colony. Haifa is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and a place for Baháʼí pilgrimage — you’ll find the Baháʼí Faith’s Baháʼí World Centre and the Baháʼí Gardens here. Hebrew is the country’s official language, but there is a fusion of both Arab and Jewish culture in Haifa, the city dubbed as ‘‘Israel’s San Francisco’’.

Hotel Botanica

Taking inspiration from the Baha’i Garden Terraces, the upscale Hotel Botanica accommodates 163 bedrooms, a spa, Le Grand Marché restaurant and a glass-walled pool terrace on its rooftop. Each has skincare products by Botanica, a Nespresso machine and a minibar; some have balconettes, with every floor in the hotel identified by a different colour and telling a unique story. Nestled into the hillside of Sderot Ben Gurion, within the Wadi Nisnas district, it is perfect for a romantic getaway (the hotel only accepts guests aged 16 and over) and for those wishing to explore the area’s heritage from a plush base.
