Message from The Inbal Jerusalem Hotel, a TBEX International 2017 Sponsor #tbexjlm
By Rony Timsit, General Manager of the Inbal Jerusalem Hotel
Jerusalem is a diverse and dynamic city that serves as a magnet for travelers of all ages. But when you examine the list of hotels, the landscape is predominantly either stuffy luxury properties, a new rash of boutique hotels or some older hotels in need of repair. Families traveling together have few choices in the luxury sector in Jerusalem, and that is where we have staked our claim with the Inbal.
With years of experience catering to families of all ages from diverse backgrounds, the Inbal Jerusalem Hotel is a one-stop-shop for guests of all generations. In developing the Inbal as one of the premier luxury hotels in Jerusalem, we have expanded the hotel’s amenities to ensure a satisfying and enjoyable family getaway for our guests regardless of age, gender or ability level.
To start with, we offer in-house activities to parents and children alike. Jerusalem offers an endless amount of recreational activities, but if you want a low-key day, we have it under control too: while the adults enjoy a well-deserved treatment at our internationally-renowned Spa and Wellness Center, let the children enjoy the Inbal’s playroom. The Inbali Club is open for toddlers and kids during the holidays, run by experienced counselors who lead exciting workshops throughout the day. The playroom is equipped with arts and crafts, games, Disney movies, a Gymboree play environment and more.
For teenagers, the Inbal runs an entertainment center during the holidays with indoor games and a range of age-appropriate paraphernalia. Contests and tournaments are held throughout the day with prizes to keep the teens stimulated and busy. The game room includes a ping-pong table, billiard table, karaoke equipment and much more. Moreover, the hotel has the only all-year-round indoor/outdoor pool in the city, offering fun for the whole family no matter what the season.
There is no shortage of kid-friendly dining options at the Inbal, where we transform fine dining to be a fun experience for children. At the Carmel restaurant, we offer fan-favorites like hot dogs, hamburgers and spaghetti alongside the ‘adult’ menu. For snacks or lunch, the Sofia Café in the hotel’s lobby offers pizza, toasts and pasta all day long. Breakfast has many options that appeal to kids such as waffles, pancakes and more. And of course, we are always happy to accommodate special requests.
Our elegant family rooms and suites provide the extra space that families need to travel comfortably. Many of the rooms have connecting doors to adjoining rooms to accommodate larger families, as well as an expanded sitting area. Family suites feature stunning Old City views; they also offer parents all-day access to the Inbal’s Executive Lounge. Your stay will be a first-class experience for both kids and adults.
We invite you to explore a vacation where luxury and family work in harmony at the Inbal Hotel.
