At the heart of Tel Aviv UNESCO White City, the new Alma Hotel & Lounge (recently opened, four months ago) sets a new standard in luxury boutique hospitality in Tel Aviv, Israel.
The building's history goes back to 1925, as the first private residence designed for families to live side by side in the heart of Tel Aviv.
* The Designers: The restored identity of the hotel is a collaboration between the leading architecture and interior design studio Shaltiel Kastiel and the mosaic and glass artist Lauri Recanati. The hotel has 8 spacious deluxe rooms and 7 studio suites, each uniquely designed, telling a different story of the building's bohemian past.
* The Furniture: A mix of vintage and heavily embellished unique furniture, (hand picked for each room) with contemporary furniture and Art
It is a good way for visitors to meet the trend setters in Israel; restauranteurs, bankers, public figures in addition to expats.
