Orchid Hotels has added Milos Dead Sea to its expanding portfolio of accommodations in Israel. In development this year, and slated to open in November, the new hotel is described by Director for Orchid Hotels and Jordache Group, Israel Ran Balbus as a “resort by the beach.” The 162-room property features 128 Deluxe rooms and 32 Suites, 16 of which have a private pool. Each room has its own private balcony, with ground floor rooms offering direct access to the main swimming pool. An infinity pool will also be stationed by the beach.

“The property was previously the Tsell Harim Hotel, which closed two years ago, and we have renovated it into a highend village in the middle of the desert.”The hotel features a spa with 12 treatment rooms, Turkish Hamam and a swimming pool, with a high-tech fitness center available 24/7 for guests. “We chose the name Milos to reflect contemporary Greek style, with a light and casual resort that has a ‘tavern by the beach feel,’ where guests can enjoy the best facilities and indulge in our relaxing environment,” explains Balbus. The dining room, which will house a chef restaurant, is to serve a buffet breakfast and an à la carte dinner menu, among other options. Other amenities include a lobby lounge, where events will take place, and a parking lot. “We are a hotel for anyone wanting to experience the Dead Sea from a new perspective,”says Balbus.
