About an hour from the bustling city of Tel Aviv in Israel lies a hidden gem called Akko. While you might not think this sleepy little town could be home to a luxurious award winning hotel and restaurant, it is. The Efendi Hotel draws foodies and discerning travelers from all over the world to its exclusive digs. The stunning boutique property is set in two stone-built, Ottoman palaces that were carefully restored and joined together over the course of six years. It took $6 million to renovate the early Ottoman Empire mansions and no detail was spared. Here’s an inside look!
On your way from Tel Aviv to Akko make a pitstop in Haifa to take in their beautiful gardens.
