Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Monday, 7 December 2009

Ritz-Carlton is to open its first property in Israel. The 110-room hotel, which will also include 85 Ritz-Carlton Residential Suites, is located at the marina in Herzliya, a coastal suburb just north of Tel Aviv. It is scheduled to open in March 2012.

The selection of a site in Herzliya will appeal to both leisure and business travelers, and recognizes a coastal suburb just north of Tel Aviv as an area that is ready to welcome a five star-caliber property. We hope the signing of an agreement to manage the first Ritz-Carlton in Israel will only be an initial step toward other future locations and opportunities, said Simon F. Cooper, president and chief operating officer, Ritz-Carlton. The enthusiasm of the government of Israel and the partners about this exciting project shows their confidence in The Ritz-Carlton brand and its reputation for operating world-class properties around the world.

The project is co-owned by Tidhar (owned by Gil Geva and Arye Bachar) Adi Strauss and Irit Strauss, and represents an investment of around US $160 million.

Gil Geva, co-owner of The Ritz-Carlton, Herzliya, said, The Ritz-Carlton will set a new standard for luxury management and comfort in Israels hotel and tourism industry. It is poised to drive growth in Herzliya, as well as tourism sites all over Israel.
