This vacation club is distinguished by its small structure, well fitted out outside spaces and its ''all inclusive'' formula, pushed to the maximum.

About 1 mile north of Eilat, at the gates of the desert. and almost 1.2 miles away from the beach ( free shuttles). Allow about 5 minutes fro transfer from the airport.
The Club Magic Sunrise is an exception in this area. The only real vacation village on the area, it offers discreet and sober architecture that contrasts strongly with the building style of the Eilat's hotels. Plus, it offers the'' all inclusive'' formula, including, besides all meals, all kinds of free activities like tennis, sea kayaking, climbing wall and also jeep rides in the desert or horse-riding in the nearby kibboutz. The rates are, obviously, quite expensive.
Built on a large area, the Magic Sunrise has 279 rooms, spread out between small one-level buildings connected by paved walkways and large green areas. Upon entering the site, you will see a large pyramid housing an indoor heated swimming pool of almost 300 m≤, a buffet-restaurant, lots of lounges and a small fitness room. Outside, you will find a large swimming pool and sport grounds including a professional football field. Everything here is designed for families, witnessed by the different playgrounds for children and the mini-club equipped with games, TV and video. Free shuttles will get you to Eilat town centre, the beach and the different main interests in the area.
Located in retreat from the club activities, and then, in a peaceful area, the rooms are grouped in small Oriental style blocks, designed around a central patio. All the units have two rooms: a small room with a double bed and a living-room fitted out with a sofa that can accommodate two children. The wooden and wrought iron furniture matches perfectly with the general style of the hotel. As for the facilities, they offer two TVs (one in each room), a telephone, a safe and air-conditioning. The bathrooms, even if quite small, are one of the largest that we saw in Eilat. Larger families can have communicating rooms.
The Magic Sunrise offers no less than 5 meals a day, which will delight even the most ravenous eaters. A main restaurant, located under the pyramid, serves a kosher buffet four times a day - for breakfast, lunch, dinner and midnight meals. There is a lot of diversity among the foods with a different theme every day ( Oriental, French, South-American, Asian...). The drinks, including local alcohols, and the food are served at will. A space is also designed for children. During the day, a barbecue is available outside. And for the night owls, the Moonlight Club offers drinks 24 hours a day.
Despite all its assets, the Magic Sunrise is the farthest establishment of Eilat from the beach. Free shuttles are available to get you to the beach which has a downtown club. The beach is noisy, because of the loudspeakers that offer continous music. Deckchairs and sunshades are available for free, but except for kayak and padalo, the water sports are an extra. The water here is very clear but there is not too much sand and the seaside is pretty rocky:
