Six Senses Shaharut,, Israel


Enthralling Israel

A new dawn of luxury

Sacred stories ooze from Israel's holy sites and ancient landscapes, while its buzzy cities draw in curious travellers. Add new hotels The Jaffa and Six Senses Shaharut into the mix and there's more than enough reason to visit Israel.

Welcome to Israel – a country embracing a new character. Find playfulness in modern Tel Aviv with its cosmopolitan restaurants and late-night bars then explore onwards towards Israel’s deserts where luxury hotels offer a place to soak up mesmerising landscapes.


"With endless blue skies and a thriving, upbeat culture, Israel could be the hottest ticket in the Mediterranean right now."

Tel Aviv, Israel


Access to Israel is easier than ever, with more major airlines adding direct flights to Tel Aviv this March. We suggest spending a few days in the arty capital before heading to the Negev Desert where the new Six Senses Shaharut awaits, carved into a dramatic cliff face.

"If you are a beach lover you'll find Tel Aviv's city beach to a surprising joy with sparkling clear water and fine sand."

Welcome to a richly layered city, which has emerged from its chrysalis with a burgeoning dining scene amid Bauhaus-inspired buildings. Tel Aviv is enjoying a revival with several new stylish hotel openings.

Notably, The Jaffa – located in the hip Jaffa neighbourhood. A former hospital, the hotel has gloriously high, vaulted ceilings and retains a sense of its medieval history among modern, stylish furnishings, lit by the colour of its original stained-glass windows. British designer John Pawson has used his minimalist touch and you will also find Damien Hirst artwork in the lobby.

We’re citing the Negev Desert as one of the most dramatic destinations yet for a Six Senses hotel – and that’s really saying something for a brand that’s found from Bhutan to Bali. Getting there adds to the experience: travel by road or helicopter through a rugged, biblical landscape where seemingly endless horizons are rippled by ochre sand dunes.

Hidden in the Arava Valley is Six Senses Shararut, where suites with pools and a sensational spa are camouflaged into the cliffs. Views here are startling, especially the declining sun as it sets the boundless, honeycomb sands aflame. Get closer to the landscape with Six Senses’ sensitive introduction to desert experiences, walk the dunes, with a story-telling Bedouin, camp under pristine starry skies or take a twilight camel safari.


It’s also possible to combine Israel with Jordan turning your trip into a Middle Eastern exploration. You will find Jordan to be a surprisingly easy country to get around, and it’s possible to see all the main sights in a week. Dose up on cultural heritage in Amman, the rock-hewn city of Petra, the shifting sands of Wadi Rum and soaking in the curative waters of the Dead Sea. From here you will enter Israel via the Negev Desert cocooning yourself in the arid landscapes and sheer luxury of Six Senses Shaharut.
