Isrotel Hotels Management (1981) Ltd. is an Israeli hotel chain. Most of its hotels are located in Israels southern city of Eilat. At the end of 2008 Isrotel operated 12 hotels, as well as related vacation products, including restaurants, spas, a diving club called Manta and other attractions.

Isrotel markets itself under the slogan "a hotel for every dream you have" ensuring every hotel is unique, to suit each guests personal taste and needs.

History[edit]

In 1980 a British businessman David Lewis was contacted by the then Tourism Minister Gideon Patt, in an attempt to persuade him to invest in Israel. After a visit to the city of Eilat, on days when there were a limited number of hotels and a lot of sunshine and beaches, he recognized the immense tourism potential and decided to invest in Israels southernmost city. Isrotel's first step was the establishment of The King Solomons Palace Hotel in the city of Eilat which was groundbreaking as for the first time in Eilat a hotel was introduced that gave guests all their needs under one roof: restaurants, bars, shops, entertainment and unique hospitality experiences. After the continued success of Isrotel King Solomons Palace, Isrotel began to develop and establish other hotels, each of them offering a different vacation experience hence the slogan "a hotel for every dream you have".

Current events[edit]

Isrotel now operates its own flights between the Luton Airport in the UK and Eilat Airport enabling customers to fly directly.[1] This was caused by "a substantial decline in the UK market, which is partly due to the lack of direct flights."[2]

The Isrotel Hotel chain is also in the process of constructing a unique leisure resort in Mitzpe Ramon, The Bereshit (Genesis) Hotel which will be fully integrated into the surrounding natural terrain.

The 112 room resort will offer guests service of the highest standards, alongside the attractions associated with the crater and the Negev desert. The new hotel will itself be an attraction, constituting an additional magnet that will attract visitors to the crater.[3]

The Isrotel Royal Beach Eilat and Carmel Forest Spa Resort in Haifa were mentioned in Fodor's October 10, 2006 as 2 of the 5 best choices for lodging in Israel.[4]
