Watch out, you're about to fall in love! This hotel, the most charming in the city, is a real favourite! Contrary to the many enormous hotels found in the area, this establishment is made up of several smaller buildings peacefully nestled in amongst the well-maintained greenery on the hillside. The amenities in the guest rooms are fantastic, the services excellent, and the panoramic view from the swimming pool is truly unique... The only negative point is that you'll have to get used to the often noisy, incessant comings and goings of the electric cars that take guests to and from their rooms.

    Location 7.0 /10

    Set back from the city's many main hotels built around the marina, the Orchid hotel stands along the road that leads to the Egyptian border. Facing the Red Sea, it is only a stone's throw away from the underwater life observation centre, one of the city's main attractions. Coral Reef and its many dolphins are just a little further away. The hotel was built on a hillside, meaning that its villas benefit from unobstructed views of the Red Sea and the mountains in the distance.

    Accommodation 8.20 /10

    The villas are scattered about the tree-filled park set out in two wings, each with its own theme: Thai (134 rooms) or Shangri-La (36 rooms). The latter is where you'll find the more upscale lodgings, which include a jacuzzi on each of the terraces. The rooms are completely charming, their completely exotic atmosphere taking you directly to Asia! The decor is refined, the materials are noble and the services follow suit: flat-screen television, individual air-conditioning, free Wi-Fi... and the balconies have a splendid direct view of the Red Sea and the Jordan mountains.

    Overview 8.70 /10

    The hotel is made up of 10 Villas whose Asian-inspired elegant architecture is a refreshing aspect of the scenery in Eilat, otherwise bogged down with concrete blocks. The small buildings are scattered about in a pretty and well-arranged park covering the entire hill. Guests enter the hotel as they would a familiar and exclusive residence, feet sliding on the shiny parquet flooring, passing under the exposed beams and among the sculptures and little pools. The swimming pool area is very pleasant indeed, located on a terrace overlooking Eilat: it features some greenery here and there, modern and well chosen furnishings, a restaurant and a splendid and very comfortable bar lounge clad in wood. The cosy lounge ambiance is great for those looking for charm. Feel like going for a bike ride? Guests can borrow one for free just opposite the reception.

    Food and drink 7.95 /10

    The Chao Phya restaurant is just beside the pool facing the plush wood-clad bar. Breakfast consists of mainly Israeli cuisine and dinner is a buffet offering local and international cuisine, including kosher Thai options. The decor is in line with the Asian atmosphere and the large bay windows offer superb views of the Red Sea.

    To know

    There is a particularly practical shuttle system on the hotel grounds that brings guests to their rooms from reception and vice versa. These practical little golf carts are great for saving your energy but unfortunately they tend to be a bit noisy. Nevertheless, the hotel is not recommended for those with reduced mobility.
