The David Kempinski Tel Aviv eyes February 2022 debut
Luxury hospitality brand Kempinski’s first Israeli property will be located in a stunning beachfront skyscraper created by Feigin Architects, with interiors courtesy of Ara Design.
This 250-key hotel is promising to deliver an impressive array of F&B and wellness amenities.
A landmark setting
The David Kempinski Tel Aviv, which will officially launch in February 2022, is earmarked for a central location across the street from the city’s seaside boardwalk and promenade. Upon completion, the property will span 34 storeys of a Feigin Architects-designed skyscraper boasting interiors by Ara Design – each of its 250 rooms and suites will feature sliding glass doors and views over the Mediterranean Sea.
The hotel will include 56 spacious suites, five dining venues and a 34th-floor lounge, which will transform after dark into hip nightlife venue Cloud51, due to open in April..
Guy Klaiman, general manager of The David Kempinski Tel Aviv, said: “Our goal is to create a warm community and become a home base in Tel Aviv for families visiting Israel. The David Kempinski Tel Aviv is the new central hub along the beach, combining the finest of a beach vacation and cultural urban experience.”
A new luxury lifestyle hub
Well-heeled guests can opt for the triplex-penthouse suite – said to be the largest of its kind in Tel Aviv – spread across 4,000 sq ft of space and encompassing a rooftop terrace and infinity pool. The hotel’s top 14 suites will come with exclusive access to a 34th-floor outdoor lounge, complete with a private pool, lounge restaurant and bar.
The F&B programme at Kempinski’s latest outpost will be led by executive chef Mor Cohen, a World Luxury Restaurants Awards winner who specialises in gourmet kosher cuisine. Diners will be able to refuel at fish restaurant Sereia Restaurant & Lounge, order menu items from the infinity pool deck and sample lobby concept The Common Bar, pairing a Cohiba Atmosphere bar with Israel’s first House of Macallan whiskey bar.
Among the other amenities are a full-service spa with 11 treatment rooms, a fitness centre, a sauna, a relaxation area, and state-of-the-art meeting and banquet space accommodating up to 500 delegates.
