Every year, millions of tourists travel to Israel to explore the country’s landscape and history. While the beaches of Tel Aviv and the streets of Jerusalem are often crowded with tourists, the ultimate trend in Israel is for luxury resorts. The hotel industry invests millions in isolated, exclusive and, of course, expensive hotels. In these places, visitors can have privacy and exclusive experiences.
Most luxury resorts in Israel are concentrated in Naveg, a desert area, and Lake Kinneret, by the Sea of Galilee, two areas that are not among the most popular tourist destinations. The Six Senses Shaharut is the latest luxury resort to open in Israel, and it’s probably the best of them all.
Six Senses Shaharut Activities
Six Senses Shaharut was designed to be a luxurious immersion in the Negev desert, so guests can expect to experience Israel in a new way. They can also help travelers arrange tours to Pedra, the Dead Sea, Masada and Mount Karkkom. There are endless activities for those wishing to explore the hotel area, and the hotel can help arrange tours.
Early in the morning, guests can take a 90-minute camel trek, crossing archaeological sites and incredible geological formations. Tours have up to eight people stopping to admire the desert sitting on a shade with pillows and traditional rugs.
Travelers looking for more adrenaline can mountain bike Israel’s National Mountain Trail in the Negev Desert. They can also go hiking in the valley with a guide who will explain everything about the region or discover the region during a 4×4 ride.
The hotel is also the perfect place to slow down, combining luxurious and simple experiences. The hotel’s chef can prepare an exclusive meal using organic ingredients from his garden according to the guest’s preferences. Dinner is accompanied by their wine and served in a surprise location. You can also take a stargazing excursion, as the desert is a prime location for the activity.
Six Senses Shaharut has also created several rituals to connect its hosts to the desert. Visitors are greeted by the sound of stone chimes on a tree and can also watch the sunset while listening to traditional music. During their stay, guests can also use the spa facilities, which offer therapeutic and relaxing treatments.
How are the accommodations at Six Senses Shaharut?
The Six Senses Shaharut was designed to give visitors the feeling that it has always been part of the desert landscape. Create a building perfectly mixtures with the natural elements of the region would have cost 100 million dollars. The 60 suites and pool villas offer visitors luxury and privacy.
