Best of the Best 2018 - 75
MIZPE R A MON , ISR A EL
N E I G H B O R H O O D Mizpe Ramon
Negev Desert covers nearly half of Israel, but perhaps no stretch is as dazzling as the dozen
acres that encircle Beresheet. Built on the rim of Makhtesh Ramon - the world's largest crater - the hotel masterfully blends into the silent landscape, with a scattering of one- and
two-story buildings housing 111 contemporary rooms (be sure to book one with a balcony or
with your own pool overlooking the crater). The gourmet restaurant, which serves locally
sourced, organic cuisine, appears to be suspended above Makhtesh Ramon. Explore the crater on a 4x4 safari or cycling tour, or simply appreciate its grandeur from the infinity pool.
$100 value resort credit per stay.
Take some time to explore Mizpe Ramon's
Spice Route Quarter, where former military
hangars have been transformed into cafés,
boutiques and artist studios.
