Israel is a unique country so we thought we’d put together this list of the most unique places to stay in Israel. All offer high quality accommodation, but a totally different experience to what you might expect to find in a typical hotel. Spread across the country, the key to being included in this list is that they offer something that you are likely never to forget. Here are some of the most unique places to stay in Israel.
The iconic bonfire at Shkedi’s Camplodge, just north of the Dead Sea
Shkedi’s Camplodge lies about 20 minutes south of the Dead Sea in the heart of the desert where the air is strikingly silent. Simple but remarkable, the camplodge has private cabins or large dorm tents perfect for families or independent travelers. The unique thing about Shkedi’s is the amazing central bonfire set within a beautiful metal cage where guests sit on the quiet desert evening, talk, relax, and wonder at the fact that man lives in this amazing place. Shkedi’s Camplodgeis worlds away from the big hotels at the Dead Sea, and if you can live without being on the shores, an amazingly unique place to stay.
A Mongolian tent village, in Israel! Yes, at Ghengis Khan in the Golan
Ghengis Khan in the Golan
Mongolian tents are not what you expect to find in northern Israel, however in the Golan one family decided to create a village of them. Ghengis Khan in the Golan is unique because it is unexpected in an area where most bed and breakfast and zimmer accommodations are stone or wooden huts. It is something totally different in an area that’s also very special.
At Midbara, in the south of Israel, beautiful huts sit at peace with the surrounding desert
In the village of Zuqim, about one hour south of the Dead Sea, an hour north of Eilat, and two and a half hours from the center of the country, in the heart of the Arava region of the Negev, Midbara is a beautiful set of nine huts, zimmers which sit peacefully and at ease with the desert landscape they inhabit. The way in which modern luxury comfortably rests alongside the nature of the desert is remarkable. Midbara is a unique experience, not somewhere that will be quickly forgotten.
The Brown Boutique Hotel in Tel Aviv brings 1960’s style into the 21st century
Brown Hotel Tel Aviv
The Brown Hotel is one of many boutique hotels which have opened in Tel Aviv in recent years. For this, it is nothing special. What’s unique about the Brown is that it has followed a theme and brought 1960’s style into the 21st century. The only ‘Design Hotel’ in Tel Aviv, a city where design is everything is something of a tribute to the atmosphere and style which Brown alludes.
