i gave this hotel 5 stars even though it is far from perfect. this place is STUNNING in terms of natural views. The environment totally makes this place worth it. Ill start with the good. The Orchid is set back away from the city, very close to lots of reef diving and almost across the street from the observatory. They... More

We traveled as a family and loved the exotic atmosphere of the resort. The unique hillside structure of the resort allows for each room to have a freestanding feel, great views and privacy . The rooms are spacious and immaculate. The service is caring and prompt. The legendary Israeli breakfast is served in a spacious indoor /outdoor dining room, complete... More

We have just spent 3 days at the Orchid in Eilat. It's built as a Thai village, straight on the cliff near the Red Sea. We enjoyed it very much and even had an upgraded room. The staff was helpful and sympativo. Recommended!

Designed, I suppose, to replicate a lush Southeast Asian village, the Orchid Hotel and Resort seems a bit out of place in the Eilat desert. But one has to admire the effort that must have gone in to building the place. It is built on a steep hillside (no mean feat), and there are trees and flowers all around the... More

Good location south to the city of Eilat, beautiful view of the red sea, diving, out of the city but close enough. Transportation to Eilat and to the private beach, comfortable access, free parking. Reasonable quality of food.

I was very disappointed with my stay here, I orderd the delux shangrila and was promised a nice view. When we arrived we got rooms facing the resort and on a road where you hear the little golf cars going there and back. The room wasn't that nice and was very small for what they call the "deluxe" Shangrila. I... More

Stayed here one night. The hotel is very well designed as a Thai village. The rooms are actually located on a hill in small buildings looking like taken out of Thailand. Service in the front desk was efficient and courteous. You are taken to the room with a golf cart (the paths are steep and narrow - and its quite... More

The hotel is unique so it makes it fun to just walk around. It's closer to the diving spots, not near the city center, which was a plus in our opinion. They have a shuttle that takes you to the center. The rooms are spread over a side of a mountain and transportation to and from the rooms is in... More

We booked and paid 3 months early so when we arrived we found ourselves in a box with a view of a few golf carts - no one cared or spoke English - I went mental. They gave us a free orange and a glass of wine - Wifi did not work either. The next day Sheldon arrived, he spoke... More
