Hotel Overview

Sense of Place

The Setai's location immerses you in the charm of old-town Jaffa, which is only accentuated even further as you enter the hotel. While history oozes from every corner, there's also an undeniable modern allure, bringing you the best of both worlds. 

Rooms at The Setai Tel Aviv

History meets luxury decor in the light, bright and spacious rooms, which are dominated by varying degrees of ruby and metallic tones. They are graced with authentic stone and whitewashed walls while the floors are embellished with deep red oriental rugs. Get the perfect night's sleep on the plush beds, with high-quality cotton bedding and glamorous fabrics in the cushions. From the historic arched windows or floor to ceiling sliding doors, each of the rooms has spectacular views of the sea or the city.

Food & Drink

Head to the atmospheric, stone-arched Jaya restaurant for breakfast, and in the evening, return for some exquisite Israeli and local Jaffa dishes on the a la carte menu. For a taste of Asian cuisine, try the Sushi Bar and its sweet potato tempura rolls, or a flavourful papaya salad. Unwind at the Kishle Bar with a signature cocktail or a glass of local wine as the sun sets over the city in an evening.


The infinity pool is a real jewel of the hotel, raised high above the sea with uninterrupted panoramas over the coast and the city. The Setai's spa is an oasis of serenity, with custom-made treatments and expert therapists. Try one of their Turkish pasha treatments or a spice bouquet therapy with aromatic creams - ideal for relaxing any tense muscles.


Your prime location in Tel Aviv's old town means you can easily explore its rich culture and hidden backstreets within a short distance of the hotel. See one of the city's most famous landmarks - the Ottoman-style Jaffa Clock Tower - and take a wander around the Jaffa Flea Market.
