Israel – a place where old world charm, religion, culture and history uniquely blends with the new world and hi-tech innovation. With an endless list of places to visit and things to do -it’s no wonder that Israel is one of the most visited countries in the Middle East.
In part due to Israel’s Open Skies agreement and lower airfares available, tourists numbers have been on a steady rise. Visitor attractions are gaining more attention in the international press and events like Gay Pride and world leading tech conferences have opened up the audience.
In recent years, the main cities of Israel; Jerusalem, Haifa and Tel Aviv have seen a soaring growth in the hotel sector from boutique hotels to larger multi-national firms finding a place.
The Tel Aviv hotel market can be categorized by international hotel chains, local independant brands and a very limited offering of exclusive boutique hotels that provide personal service.
The only hotel in Israel to have ever made it on to Conde Nast Travelers Gold List (for 2 years in a row) is The Norman hotel. The Norman hotel, located in the center of the White City in Tel Aviv was the first hotel of its type to mark a shift in Israel’s hotel offering. Elegantly restored by architect Yoav Messer and beautifully designed by David D’almada of Sagrada in London, The Norman perfectly blends original elements from the building with modern art and technology installations. The hotel is housed in three breathtakingly beautiful buildings from the modernist, eclectic & Bauhaus periods. With 2 award winning restaurants, a bar, conference rooms and a beautiful garden, in addition to a 24 hour gym, world renowned personal trainer and spa with a much written about infinity pool located on the roof.
The Norman is characterized by a classic, relaxed atmosphere, allowing you some respite from the high-octane city of Tel Aviv. The boutique hotel prides itself on delivering personal service, unseen anywhere else in Israel.
The Norman’s great location allows guests easy access to all that Tel Aviv has to offer. The White City adjacent to Rothschild Blvd. was built using a unique style which has helped it become an UNESCO heritage site. The hotel is located within walking distance from the best example of Bauhaus buildings the world over and the famous Synagogue on Allenby. A stunning array of museums, art galleries, shops and vibrant markets gives Tel Aviv a unique and captivating vibe.
After a long day of exploring, guests can enjoy a pampering spa treatment, eat dinner at one of its 2 award winning restaurants; Alena or Dinings Japanese restaurant, or sip a glass of wine from its award winning wine list in The Library Bar.
The Norman’s list of accolades and awards is long, making it the first – if not the only – choice in Tel Aviv for guests looking for a 5-star hotel experience.
