“THE hotel for mental R&R”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 January 2013

This is the place to go to get away from it all. The no-kids no-cellphone (in public areas) policies result in an intensely calm, peaceful atmosphere.
Rooms are OK (it seems every time we left and returned the beds had been made and towels replaced), the gym is well equipped but a bit small, and everything else is truly top of the line: highest class spa, finely tended grounds and exterior pool, tennis courts, and organized activities for those looking for some action.
The dining room is actually an excellent restaurant, with service and food as good as any restaurant, better than what one would expect at a hotel.

It's the same ritual every year on my birthday. Should we try some place else or again willingly surrender ourselves to the wonderful smells the professional hands the exquisite tastes and the comfortable beds of the Carmel SPA Resort.
To be honest it's a lost battle! We've tried other places but we are addicted! We enjoy our time there so much - it's now just the agonizing wait for our next time.

My husband I enjoyed a 24 hour getaway at the Carmel Forest Spa. We each had a massage, enjoyed the tasty meals and relaxing attitude in the dining room, enjoyed our comfortable room which was attended to constantly with fresh towels, bed turn down, etc. and sat on the balcony of our room and enjoyed the beautiful view of the surrounding forest. We took a hike in the area which was terrific but the hotel was somewhat reluctant to direct us/instruct us regarding the unmarked paths. I guess they've had a few guests get loss! We came home and I felt as though I'd been away for a week. Can't imagine a more successful getaway.

Room Tip: One of the tsemeret rooms was great...a nice little balcony upon which you can lie in the sun or jus...

Enter the lobby and enjoy the fresh clean scent of pine that is pumped through the air conditioning system - divine!
We adored the room with a large balcony and view of the forest. The bathroom was immaculately clean and the soap and shampoos provided are lovely.

Spa treatments are very pampering and as you wait for your attendant to find you, sipping tea is oh so calming.

The food served is very delicious with buffet breakfasts with a massive variety of veggies, breads, cheeses, salads, cakes - massive being a dangerous word, as you can exit the spa with a massive weight gain if not careful.

Having said that, I look forward to our next visit and am sure that you will adore your stay there.

tWe truly enjoyed the hotel. the rooms were a bit old and small but other than that the food was great as was the service. Everything we asked for was received with a smile. It bothered me a bit that guests would go to the dining room wearing their robe. it was explained to me that this is a spa and that it was acceptable to eat in ones robe. To me this was tacky. i expected an exclusive spa to have some sort of dress code for the dining room. One of the nice things about this hotel is that on the day leaving the hotel the guests are allowed to remain on premisis and continue using the facilities to the evening of that same day. this is a big plus. there were plenty of activities to keep one busy from morning to night. i would definately return there again - i just think it was a bit overpriced.

Room Tip: 6th and 7th floors have views to the forest and also windows that can be opened. this is not the c...

Great time off, made me smile for the rest of the week, the food is amazing, the view and weather is always nice up at the mountains, and the forest is so calming, a pure pleasure.
Been there once with the wife and once with friends, both were excellent, starting from the massage, through dinner, breakfast, the pool, the room, love it.

Room Tip: preferably a room with a view and a balcony would make your stay even better

If you’re looking for a spa in israel - that's the place to you should choose. Located in a remote hide a way between the Carmel Mountains and viewing the Mediterranean sea, located only 10km away. Carmel spa is the best place to relax and indulge yourself in Israel. The place was originally established in the 50’s as a vacation resort in the style of central European resorts, and still always very updated and well maintained to deluxe standards.
Children and cell phones are not allowed.
Excellent food is served on full board basis: breakfast, lunch and dinner. Excellent food and first class service – you want be able to resist.
Do not skip a massage in the SPA – where they recruit only top masseurs.
Everything you need and more, to help you forget you busy life and worries.

Room Tip: We visited a few time, and saw and stayed in different rooms - you cant get a bad room. You can only...
