On a recent visit to Eilat, we decided to stop overnight in the dessert town of Mitspe Ramon where Isrotel has built a luxury hotel.
The hotel is built on the side of the crater and from the outside is extremely ugly. What a surprise awaits you when you enter.
Cars have to be left in the car park and a motorised buggy is waiting for you and your luggage.
You are taken to the main building for check in. There were a number of people checking in, but within minutes we were deposited in our bedroom. Our luggage was delivered, with us and the porter didn't hang around waiting for a tip.
Our room was gorgeous. Cleverly planned, gleaming clean and with everything you could need, corner with tea and coffee, writing desk/make up table, sofa & large T.V. The bathroom was beautiful and also had every luxury (even weighing scales).
The buggies are available 24/7 to make getting to & from your room easy. We were in walking distance of the main building so we didn't bother to use them.
Some of the rooms overlook the crater giving an amazing view (especially sunset & sunrise.) You can also choose a room with its own outdoor pool.All rooms have an outdoor seating area.
The lobby, dining room & public areas are beautifully designed.
The food is excellent & plentiful. The breakfast buffet offers an enormous choice not just of the usual salads & hot dishes, but all sorts of unusual mini quiches, breads, dips, spreads and all sorts of other delights. Staff are circulating all the time ready to cater to your every whim.
The evening meal starts with a salad bar too amazing to describe. The rest of the meal is served by a charming waiter. The menu is plentiful and your order is made fresh while you are eating your first course. Deserts were good too.
As the hotel is isolated and the nearby town lacking in entertainment or up market restaurants the hotel provides films, shows and many activities for their guests.
We didn't use the spa or the indoor or outdoor pools, but have heard from friends that they were very good.
The ideal time to visit Bereshit is when the weather is warm and one can enjoy all the facilities.. maybe autumn or spring.
We certainly plan to visit again.
The only drawback is the exorbitant price. But it doesn't hurt to spoil yourselves once in a while.
