It’s funny how I get to travel around the world at least twice a month, much more than I explore my beautiful home land. And that’s why just before I’m jumping on my next flight for another super cool and unique adventure, I decided that it’s time to breathe some clear mountain air and spent the weekend In charming Jerusalem.
Now let’s make it clear. When I’m saying a weekend in Jerusalem I actually mean that I have turned into a Jerusalem princess by the ultimate host of The David Citadel Hotel.
So yes, It’s true, I happen to experience great pleasure and royalty hospitality when I travel for work, but this experience was something else, it was living the tradition with a luxury allure in each and every aspect!
It started with the fact that I stayed in the beautiful presidential suite overlooking the magnificent views of the Tower of David and the Old City walls, the same suite that Bill Clinton, Vladimir Putin, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West stayed in.
It continued with a one of a kind princess brunch on the huge suite’s terrace, that the hotel’s chef, Avi Turgeman, made especially for me, including all kinds of French and Mediterranean pastries, home made bread, jams, chocolates, pancakes, fresh fruits, champagne and everything you can dream of!
We simply couldn’t resist the temptation to take some pictures of all that glory, and after relaxing in a huge bubble bath we took the camera and explored every corner at the hotel, discovering it’s never ending beauty and elegance that was designed by the skillful hands of the Italian architect and designer Piero Lissoni.
We couldn’t think of a better way to wrap up the day, than with relaxing visit at the holistic innovative spa, for the ultimate spiritual and sensual retreat and then some fine wine and an incredible Japanese dinner.
The next morning was super hot so we decided to skip breakfast and start it with an early deep in the pool and some refreshing cocktails and exotic fruits. We were all alone in the pool, floating in the water and watching the old city, thinking this for sure(!( should be our once A month perfect getaway (fingers cross).
