Hotel Description

What the name Elma Arts Complex Luxury Hotel lacks in brevity it certainly makes up in completeness: you’re left with no doubt about what to expect from this ultra-modern 95-room structure that snakes along a hilltop overlooking the Mediterranean Sea in Zichron Yaakov, Israel. It’s a sort of cultural center and design hotel rolled into one, and set in a series of buildings. And the Elma is focused on arts, not just art — an important distinction, as it’s not simply a place with a notable collection of paintings and sculpture, but also a pair of state-of-the-art concert halls, two galleries dedicated to the visual arts, four artists in residency, and a roster of classes led by dancers, musicians, actors and writers.

What about the actual guest rooms? Oh, those: they’re gorgeous. Sleek and drenched with sunshine, they marry clean minimalism with a warm and colorful aesthetic: think blonde wood and crisp white mixed with boldly patterned throw rugs, cheerful striped throw pillows, and mod tulip tables. Standard rooms are located inside the main building, each with a private balcony or terrace facing the sea. Considerably more lavish suites, located within a series of freestanding cottages, feature dining rooms and marble or tiled patios with outdoor furniture. The best suites are soundproofed and come with iPod docks, in case you’re inspired to get into the spirit of the arts and blast the Israeli Opera’s rendition of La Traviata at two in the morning. Across the board, in-room amenities include espresso machines, Smart TVs, and free wi-fi.

The formal Oratorio restaurant is the hotel’s primary gastronomic draw, though there’s also more casual al fresco dining available beside the sparkling aqua swimming pool. Speaking of pools: the Elma spa also features an indoor pool, plus a Turkish-style hammam. It’s the perfect way to decompress before catching a show at Elma Hall, The Cube, or one of the hotel’s four amphitheaters.
