Kempinski has announced the highly anticipated debut of The David Kempinksi Tel Aviv in Israel.
Kempinski 80th global opening, this new property reflects the brand’s ethos of combining heritage and leisurely luxury with European hospitality and a sense of community.
A beachside setting
Feigin Architects designed the 34-storey skyscraper housing this 250-key luxury hotel now hosting guests in the heart of Tel Aviv’s city boardwalk area.
By staying here, guests have direct beach access and are just steps from outdoor activity options including standup paddle boarding and surfing lessons, cycling and running tours, as well as open-air yoga sessions. The hotel provides guests with beach packs comprising towels, sunscreen, snacks and refreshments.
“It combines the Kempinski ethos of heritage, impeccable service, leisurely luxury and superb European hospitality with our distinctive warmth and innovation. Our goal is to build a community and serve as a home base for our guests, a place they will want to return to whenever they visit the city.”
Culinary and wellness experiences
The 250-room hotel has as many as 56 suites pairing grandeur with floor-to-ceiling windows commanding views over the Mediterranean Sea.
The property’s triplex-penthouse suite is the largest of its kind in Tel Aviv and has two bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms, along with living space, a dining room, gym and private terrace with 10-metre infinity pool.
The award-winning chef Mor Cohen is behind the hotel’s five kosher dining venues, which each offer a distinct dining experience, from the high-end Sereia fish restaurant to health-driven Sereia Lounge, 22nd-floor Horizon Lounge, the Pool Bar and two-in-one concept Common Bar.
The hotel’s rooftop private pool and full-serviced lounge restaurant and bar is reserved exclusively for the hotel’s Signature Suite guests. In July 2022, the rooftop will become Cloud51 dining bar venue each evening.
The overall hotel experience is completed with amenities including OKOA Spa home to 11 treatment rooms, a fully-equipped gym, dry and wet sauna and relaxation area, and state-of-the-art meeting and banquet spaces with catering by chef Omri Magal.
