Highs & Lows

  • Walking into the 5th floor Deluxe Suite dressed in shades of deep red is truly a “wow” moment.

  • Curling up with a book in the lobby makes you feel like you’re in the living room of a very well traveled friend. Every piece of décor seems to have a story.

  • Knowing you are one block away from the turquoise Mediterranean Sea can’t help but put a smile on your face.

  • Breakfast at a local cafe really removes the touristy element of traveling. The delicious breakfast menu served all day has a wide range of Israeli and international delights to choose from.

  • It's not every day you get to soak in a free-standing bathtub lathered in bath products by Maaplilim (Tel Aviv based grooming company that uses natural oils and extracts from the Mediterranean region).

  • Checking out and heading back home after the perfect staycation getaway.

A two minute stroll from The Dave leaves you with your toes kissing the white foam of the Mediterranean Sea. Floating in the almost completely flat, salty sea is a therapy you didn’t know you needed.
