Israel: The Setai, Tel Aviv to open in early 2018

The luxury Setai Hotel brand will launch its third property with opening of The Setai Tel Aviv in early 2018.

The hotel will be situated in the historic old Jaffa area of Tel Aviv. The Setai Tel Aviv will be the group's second Setai in Israel, following the recent opening of the Sea of Galilee property in May 2017, and third globally, joining The Setai, Miami Beach.

Bruno H. de Schuyter, General Manager said: "We are excited to extend the prestige and sophistication of the Setai brand in Israel with our third property, The Setai, Tel Aviv. The 13th century structure that is the foundation of the new hotel is unlike any other, and we took meticulous care in preserving and infusing important historic elements into the transformation of the building.  Guests will be surrounded by a unique atmosphere of 'old meets new,' while experiencing first-class amenities and services in what will be the most superior five-star hotel in Tel Aviv."

The design of the hotel was led by the London office of Ara Design. They have aimed to combine Middle Eastern and Mediterranean elements with a contemporary style. Most of the guest rooms' outer walls are the building's original stone. Interiors feature oak furnishings and leather panelling.

Feigin Architects, an Israel-based firm, lead the architectural planning and execution of the hotel. The hotel retains elements of the original building. An arch at the hotel's entrance is adorned with the seal of Abdul Hamid II, 34th sultan of the Turkish Empire, who rose to power 100 years ago.

The Setai, Tel Aviv opening rates begin at $400 per night. For more information about The Setai Tel Aviv, visit
