The Canaan Spa Hotel
Perched on top of Mount Canaan overlooking the city of Safed is the Canaan Spa Hotel. This hotel is also a modern spa, designed to give you a complete vacation and a break from your daily routine. Neither children nor cell phones are allowed within the hotel so you don't have to worry about any unwanted noise disturbing the peace and quiet.
With 120 rooms including 2 suites, the hotel is able to accommodate large groups as well as individuals. The regular rooms are of the standard you would expect in this type of hotel and have a variety of views, from Mount Meron to the Kinneret (Sea of Galilee). Robes and slippers are provided for all guests and you can feel comfortable walking around the hotel in them.
The presidential suite has a sitting room with a fake log fire, leather seating, full screen plasma cable TV and DVD. The separate bedroom has adjustable beds and a Jacuzzi in the bathroom.
The Spa And Swimming Pool
The Spa is open from 8.00am to 7.00pm and offers a half size Olympic pool, Jacuzzi, and sauna. There is a fully fitted fitness room with an instructor available at all times as well 15 treatment rooms with a large choice of treatments. (Treatment prices begin at 240 shks). The spa also has a Turkish Hammam (bath) with an attendant who will give you an authentic Turkish bath experience. In the wooded grounds opposite the hotel you can take a Tai Chi or yoga class, or take advantage of the tennis or basketball court if you prefer something more energetic.
Unlike most hotels where you have to get up early to be in time for breakfast, and who wants to do that on vacation, the Canaan Spa offers a breakfast/brunch buffet from 7.30am until 3pm! There is no restriction on how many times you can come into the restaurant, so you can start your day with a coffee and croissant, have a full Israeli breakfast later on, and then enjoy a late lunch after a workout in the pool or a treatment in the spa. As well as this innovative idea, the hotel grows a lot of its own fruit and vegetables so the food is especially fresh.
Evening meals (available from 7.00pm - 9.00pm) are also served buffet style, so the restaurant is where you can really indulge yourself almost all day! Around the hotel there are little tea corners where you can sit and relax while enjoying the peace and quiet.
The hotel has a piano bar with a variety of evening entertainment.
Conferences And Special Events
The hotel offers excellent conference facilities which can be combined with an overnight stay or booked separately. There are also several function rooms suitable for private parties and celebrations so the hotel is well equipped to host several events at once.
The hotel is open all year round and prices vary from 1200 shks per night per couple in the middle of the week in the winter to 3400 for two nights during the weekend (Thursday and Friday) in the height of summer.
