Owner description: ICE MALL Shopping Mall is the only mall in the world that incorporates a breathtaking ice skating rink with an assortment of luxurious stores selling the world's leading brands. As if this was not enough, the mall puts forward cafés and restaurants that will revive your vacation. ICE MALL was built in 2012 in Eilat on the bank of the lagoon, and was built as a round shaped "cathedral" covering a surface of 40 thousands square meters (around 130,000 square feet). On its top you will see a geodesic dome built in an ancient method with an impressive design by the finest professionals and architects in Israel and in the world. The area of the mall was carefully designed with a prestigious ambience along with a relaxed and inviting atmosphere of vacation. Upon entering the mall you will see that the atmosphere undoubtedly delivers the next generation in shopping mall concepts, and all in the very heart of Eilat - Israel's city of sun and holiday. The shopping mall itself is a value-added-tax-exempt mall, in which you will find about 150 stores containing the best international brands, boardwalk stands grouped into one compound titled "Mall Market", 19 food venues, cafes and restaurants and 8 unique attraction sites including the largest indoor amusement park in the country. Accessibility ICE MALL is a one of a kind shopping mall standing at the forefront of next generation concept malls. The mall was built by the best architects who have put an emphasis as early as in the first stages of design upon accessibility and ease of access for people with disabilities. The mall is accessible to all types of disabilities and lovingly accepts the entire population. Precisely during these days, when hundreds of disabled people and handicapped people are visiting many entertainment centers, we assist making them more accessible. Today the mall is considered to be one of the most accessible and relaxed places for the population of the handicapped and the disabled.

“Very impressed but...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2014

Beautiful mall and ice skating rink. However, the service in the ice skating rink was terrible. They can really use a lesson in customer relations. The employees on the rink were very nice but the behind-the-counter employees were less than helpful and rather lazy and rude.
Furthermore, the equipment was pretty old and worn out. This is strange considering the ice skating rink is relatively new...

“Shops closed on Saturday!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2014

Nice modern mall, great escape from the heat outside, many shops and some restaurants. The only problem is that 90% of the shops are closed on Saturday. Beware.

The ice skating is cool! somewhat expensive but good facility.

“Bring the patience pants”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 25, 2013 via mobile

Been to the ice arena with kids at 6,11,14, all eager to skate. When we arrived we realized they got certain times they get you in for like 90 minutes. The rental shoes are in ok mode, but smell like not treated as should. I didn't see them spray them anyway. The skating itself is fine but expect crowded lines and very low observation of reflect to your personal space...

“Kool for Kids”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 2, 2013

For ice-skaters this is a great place.... a spacious, well maintained rink in the center of a huge hippedrome/shopping mall flanked by shops, cafes and restaurants.... but even if you don't skate or want to try doing it , there is plenty of family fun options here including skating performances at various times of the day, a freezing cold "igloo" attraction with lots of snow and winter fun for little kids, and other attractions such as a 3D cinema experience, a 3D-ride, etc....and a good selection of stores and eateries
