Short Breaks

History, culture and shopping

You can do a lot in five days – from recharging your batteries on the beach, to shopping for bargains or taking in some high culture.

We would all like to spend the next month travelling, but sometimes a short break is just the ticket. Whether it’s a weekend or four days your trip away has to be planned properly to make the best of the time that you have.

Cities are the obvious choice for short breaks – the airport is close by and you get to lots of sites in a single day. But they’re not the only option. You can spend a few days lazing on a beach to recharge your batteries after a working week (just enough time to get a tan that will make your colleagues wonder how you did it) or spend a weekend on the piste if skiing is your passion. For a more cultural idea, you could visit a theatre festival and take in a few shows. It’s all possible within a few hours’ flying time.

Sun, Sea and Salt

Destination: Dead Sea and Eilat
  We have combined the magical Dead Sea – one of the world’s great natural phenomena, with the warm waters of Eilat for a perfect Sun, Sea and Salt self-drive holiday in Israel. 4 Nights Sun, Sea and Salt self-drive holiday from £725.00 per person. Depart Luton on the 19th of November – 2 Nights at Herods Dead Sea Hotel on a room and breakfast basis and 2 Nights at Agamim Hotel in Eilat on a room and breakfast basis. Return flights are from Eilat Central via Tel Aviv to Luton. Car Hire; collect your car from Tel Aviv Airport on the 23rd of November – Hyundai Automatic or similar (sat nav optional) Drop off your car down town Eilat on the 21st of November. Other Dates or Longer durations available. One of the fun parts about driving yourself is that you have the freedom to get off at various points along the journey. Once you leave Jerusalem about 25 minutes into your drive, you will get to sea-level, which is marked with a sign, and is a great photo opportunity. When you arrive to Ein Bokek, the award-winning Herods Dead Sea hotel invites you to a luxurious, rejuvenating and majestic experience on the shores of the Dead Sea. Located on its own private beach, feel at one with the sublime landscape while enjoying pure tranquillity and pampering in the exclusive Herods Dead Sea Hotel. The Herods Dead Sea Spa offers a variety of heated and health-promoting pools: a sweet water pool, sulphur pools, indoor heated pool with water from the Dead Sea and Jacuzzi pools as well as luxury spa facilities, therapeutic and leisure body treatments: Turkish bath-house, solarium facility, mud pack treatments – baths and facials, hydrotherapy and saunas (wet and dry). After your 2 night’s relaxation by the Dead Sea, continue to drive down south, straight down to Eilat, which is a few hours further away. Agamim Hotel is located in a quiet area of Eilat’s North Beach, a short distance from the resort’s promenades and beaches. The hotel features attractively furnished, air-conditioned rooms, all with private facilities including satellite TV, telephone, safe and private balconies overlooking the lagoon. All of the hotel’s wings are arranged in a U-shape around the main lagoon, and the public areas (the restaurant, reception desk, and so on) are concentrated in a separate area, so that guests enjoy complete privacy and a tranquil, relaxed atmosphere. The Agamim’s hospitality style is attentive, pampering and stress-free. Agamim means ‘Lakes’, and, true to name, the Isrotel Agamim Eilat spreads out across spacious grounds; magnificent swimming pool and boasting a fresh, modern design in which natural materials reflect the colour and texture of the local landscape. The Isrotel Agamim’s main feature is the one-of-a-kind swimming pool (heated in winter), lying at the centre of the property and including waterfalls, fountains and bridges. Its three streams run along the hotel’s guest wings, allowing guests staying in Deck rooms to enter the water from their terrace and swim into the central pool. There is also a children’s pool, a well-equipped fitness room (pay locally, minimum age 16) and wet & dry sauna, plus a spa (minimum age 16), specialising in unique health treatments, children’s club (minimum age 4 with adult supervision) with a wide range of games and a video games arcade.
