Last week, Gal surprised me with a wonderful gift to celebrate the end of my military service and she took me for a night at the West Lagoon Netanya, a 5-star hotel located on the Mediterranean sea, renown for its elegance and Spa. It was clearly the best way to put an end to two years of stress (and back pains). Perched atop a high cliff, offering its guests a wonderful pristine view, the West Lagoon is the best place to relax and escape from the reality for a few nights…
The West Lagoon Hotel is located next to the Netanya’s Southern Beach strip, in a quiet area filled with luxury towers and apartments. Personal service and attention to small details are always two critical points for me, and I’m constantly checking if hotels describing themselves as 5-star places meet all criteria (French Art-de-Vivre, what do you want) and I can say the West Lagoon’s team truly took care of us and of all our requests.
If you’re looking for tranquility next door, the West is perfect. A 20 minutes drive from Tel Aviv, located in the center of the country. Its sandy tones, turquoise water and shells come together to create a peaceful atmosphere. A perfect place for couples that look for a nice hotel to escape reality and have a bit of intimacy for a few nights. Also, there’s nothing like waking up and looking to the sea from your bed…
We stayed there for a night, in a Deluxe Premium room with a sea view, and spent our time between the Infinity pool looking over the waves, the spa where we had a very good massage (it truly has to be said) and the different restaurants.
We went to the hotel’s restaurant for Breakfast and Dinner and we had a very good experience. The buffet was amazing and full of different dishes for all tastes, you can sit there on the terrace overlooking the blue sea and be sure you’ll be treated well. Fine meat, fish, veggie, food is tasty and qualitative. The West Café, located on the lobby level, also includes a beautiful sea-view terrace and serves a wide range of Greek-style dairy dishes & drinks. We had a very good time.
The hotel’s luxurious spa is spread over two floors, next to the pool and just in front of the sea, and offers some very good treatments, massages, a Turkish bath, a sauna, and a gym. The exterior pool is just amazing and one of the beautiful you will see in Israel. That’s exactly why we chose not to reveal it completely… Between the sky, the sea and the pool’s water, we can talk about 50 shades of blue. There’s a nice and young mood too, music and bar, it’s perfect to chill and to enjoy your afternoon. I’ll take a mojito with my sunset.
