Guests relax with a view of the spa garden at Carmel Forest Spa Resort in Israel



Carmel Forest Spa Resort

Situated in the heart of Israel's Carmel Forest and set within fifteen acres of private woodland, the Carmel Forest Spa Resort overlooks the sea. Wellness here is a 24-hour affair, and from healthy kosher meals to classes that include yoga, Tai Chi, meditation and even kickboxing, the mind, body and spirit are fed all day long. Because soul searching is also a part of sound living, the variety of workshops offered throughout the year includes an exploration of the philosophy of Kabbalah. Whether you're taking a guided walk in the forest or unwinding in the terrace solarium, you will find a form of relaxation ideally suited just for you.
